It really does go without saying, but consider this an official, gigantic, enormous, big, fuck-off SPOILER ALERT.

Read on at your own peril.

Game of Thrones fucked everyone's shit right up this week, with the Trial by Combat for Tyrion Lannister reaching its bloody conclusion.  The long awaited grudge match between The Mountain (Gregor Clegane) and The Red Viper (Oberyn Martell) finally happened, with Oberyn seeking a confession from Gregor for the rape and murder of his sister by any means necessary.

And then SHIT. GOT. REAL.

You know.


Shit like this.


God... God damn.


Game of Thrones isn't exactly known for being a walk in the park at the best of times, but I don't think anyone was expecting it to get that brutal (unless you read the books, in which case good for you, smartypants).

Needless to say, feelings were felt. And more importantly, reactions were reacted.


It's all ok, though. It's just a TV show, after all. Look! Even the two actors involved are cool with it.


Though where that leaves poor, sad Tyrion is anyone's guess.
