It must not have affected me as strongly as it did you.  I only vaguely recalled it when it was referenced in ADwD.  Indeed, I was trying to recall what had happened to Catelyn. ;P
When you insult someone by calling them a "pig" or a "dog" you aren't maligning pigs and dogs everywhere.  The same is true of any term used as an insult.

The Battle of Blackwater was awesome, but I think that final scene tonight might have been the best of the series (or maybe even TV) so far.  I got chills.  Great episode.

I second that, MM. I've been waiting for Dany to get her Crowning Moment of Awesome and they pulled it off nicely.

What, no reactions to the Red Wedding on screen?  ;)

I've been working on a big write up regarding this episode and the red wedding, but I just hadn't gotten to it yet.

Short answer: loved it.

Not having read the books, the only forewarning I had was from a conversation from a friend who said, "Oh, that's where they are in the story?  Something epic is going to happen soon.  I don't want to spoil it for you, though."

Spoiler for Hidden:
I knew as soon as the doors to the banquet hall closed that something big was about to happen.  I just had no idea how horrible it was going to be.

And out of all of it, I think I felt bad for Arya and Grey Wind more than anyone else.

Also interesting to see not one but two narrowly missed opportunities for the Stark children to reunite with one another.

Excellent episode.

And all after I'd just watched the episode of Breaking Bad where Hank gets into the shootout in the parking lot.

I would love to see the show but it hasn't popped up anywhere I can conveniently see it.  I could probably torrent it, but that brings with it its own inconveniences.

I eagerly await your write-up, MM.

I enjoyed it as well. Despite the fact that I knew it was coming, it was still a very powerful scene. Cat's pleas for Robb's life at the end were especially wrenching. Michelle Fairley should get an Emmy!

He's the main protagonist in my eyes.  When (normally I'd say "if", but it seems like *everyone* is going to die in this series) he dies, so likely will my interest in the story.

I recall reading somewhere that he initially planned on it, but liked Tyrion too much to do so. In my searching for evidence to support my vague recollection, I didn't find anything, except for a new book about Tyrion coming out this year: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/05/02/new-game-of-thrones-book-_n_3200498.html
