Tweets Of The Week

*Spoiler-filled* Red Wedding reactions, Nathan Fillion’s beef with Man Of Steel and what did Damon Lindelof write for World War Z ? All in the latest Tweets Of The Week (opens in new tab)

SPOILER WARNING: seriously, if you haven’t seen episode 9 of Game Of Thrones ’ third season (or at the very least read the books) and you don’t want to be spoiled, skip forward to page 2 where it’s business as usual for Tweets Of The Week…

@Maisie_Williams *spoiler ep9* https://vine.co/v/b3XZMHmxzxh (opens in new tab)

It’s destined to go down as one of the most shocking moments in TV history, so it’s little surprise The Red Wedding was the talk of Twitter in the seconds, minutes, hours, days after it aired. For UK viewers Twitter became a 24-hour no-go zone, as the agonising wait for it to start, one day after it debuted in the States meant all social media was filled with spoiler mines. Among the first to react were the cast (Maisie William’s bizarre Vine above being the highlight):

@mguggenheim The number of people who were shocked by Sunday's Game of Thrones is directly proportional to the number of people who have never read GOT.

@Liam_J_McIntyre Wow. Really @GameOfThrones ? I don't know if I actually want to watch you anymore after that. I'm actually kind of annoyed. Boo.

@RhettReese Last night's Game of Thrones lived up to all expectations. It did justice to my second favorite scene in all the books!

Fortunately at least some were around to help us deal with the trauma through laughter:

@zachbraff Between Michael Douglas ruining cunnilingus and the Blood Wedding on G.O.T, it's been a dramatic 24 hours.

@edgarwright I am not quite caught up yet, but clearly the acronym for Game Of Thrones should officially be changed from GoT to OMG.

@pattonoswalt Let's just say I've deejayed a LOT of weddings that ended like last night's GAME OF THRONES.

Jon Favreau

@Jon_Favreau I don't know which was more disturbing, the red wedding on #got or Rob Lowe's makeup on #behindthecandelabra

@joncassar Game of Thrones - for those still in shock, now you you know why your nerdy friend who read the books was depressed 10 years ago

@IGLevine Sorry, if you rage quit game of thrones after the last episode, you're doing it wrong.

@stevendeknight #InTheFlesh makes me want to move to the UK to create my next series. Brilliant, unexpected, and deeply moving.

@NathanFillion Stop showing me so much Man of Steel! We'll all go! "Much anticipated" is turning into "saw most of it."

@wossy I am preparing for my lovely wife's #GameofThrones themed birthday party tomorrow. I have the best costume EVER.Doubt you can guess it...

(opens in new tab)

@neilhimself @wossy you will be wearing a George R R Martin costume, complete with beard and casey jones hat.

(opens in new tab)

@philfordesq @wossy Just make sure none of the guests are wearing chain mail under their suits! GoT doesn't have a good rep when it comes to parties.
