So tell me....  
people who have read the Game of Thrones books,
This show is just so unremittingly violent, and more than that, hopeless. They kill off almost everyone who you even give a damn about, in the most brutal way possible, and I wonder why keep on with it? Is there a point, when you finally get to the end? Or is it just one long relentless blood bath? Because if that's all it is, I think I'm done. Tonight's episode was just horrible, upsetting, and I just would like to know if it ever gets better?

The hopelessness is why I stopped reading the books after #5. And when hubby (who read the last book) told me one of my favorite characters "might" be dead, I gave up on thinking I might come back to them. The books are unrelentingly violent even more than the show.

There appears to be no end in sight and I feel like things just keep getting worse for the stark family. For me they were the only honorable family and the books just kept crushing them - so unfairly.

The violence continues and as far as I could see there was no happy or satisfying resolution to be found for anyone!

I know what incident happened last night and it upset me greatly when i read the books. I watched the first season just for Sean Bean and I've reluctantly watched more and I don't know why I do. I feel like it's very stupid of me especially since I know what happens and it doesn't make me happy and typically that's the way I like my TV.

So In Conclusion:
Still Violent & Hopeless
No Happy ending for anyone
No resolution on the horizon
