I knew what was coming because I (stupidly) read a spoiler, but I still wasn't really ready for how brutal it was going to be.
My wife's been a champ. She's read all the books, but not a peep out of her re: spoilers. After Ned got Lannistered, I kind of expected the unexpected going forward. I had a bad feeling Robb's wife was going to end up dead as retribution, but I wasn't expecting the whole Stark posse. Good episode in what's been a great season.
