Katydid

[Book Spoilers] Catelyn @ the end

Recommended Posts

Is Michelle Fairley staying on? From reading the interviews after the episode aired I got the impression she wasn't.

I love the way they showed Cat. It felt very true to the books, though i do wish they'd have kept the dialogue about her being mad and then deciding to kill her.

My only actual complaint is with the editing, when Cat screams it cuts from one powerful shot of Michelle, the scream continues over a few shots and then it cuts back to michelle where she looks catatonic and it just doesn't fit with the sound. I noticed it on my first viewing and still find it jarring.

But I think Michelle killed it. Was more surprised by Talissa's death though, guess those spy hints were just a red herring after all.

Yeah, it wouldn't have worked well in the show. In the books, we see her thought process, how she thinks it's ravens, that the blood on her wrists are worms etc. The way the show did it was the way to show she was crazy without the advantage of thought process. That, and I don't know if the effects would have been good. I mean, the effects for Frey's wife's throat being cut, and Cat's were pretty bad, IMO.

Agreed those were pretty bad throat slashings.....they could have done better effects wise on those.....

It was worse than what I expected. I mean a pregnant woman got stabbed repeatedly in the stomach. That alone made it 10x worse than the book version for me.

Wat.

Pretty much everybody that wasn't a Frey got slaughtered in that room. A pregnant woman was repeatedly stabbed in her stomach.

I thought Fairley was perfect in that scene, from the dread when "Rains" started playing to her throat being slit. Having the face claw up in the book wouldn't have worked to well, in my opinion. Maybe they can have her face disfigured by some animal when her body washes up from the river.

i was expecting the level of bloodshed similar to the ending scene of spartacus blood and sand.

Michelle killed it. She was amazing the entire episode, from the moment she heard "Rains" start to play, to discovering the armor under Bolton's tunic ... and to the very end. I'm so ready for Stoneheart now.

I thought they did a very good job of that whole ordeal. After seeing that betrayal and the smirk on Walders face as the Northmen were killed, I find myself looking very forward to Stonehearts arrival and her version of justice upon the Freys.

I'm surprised to see a lot of disappointment at Cat not clawing her face off. Take heart viewers, she still has three whole days worth of laying on the river bank for crows to chew her face up real good and achieve the desired effect.

Catatonic Cat represents the viewers and how they were probably reacting. And how the frey just slit her throat was like you were slitting any hope the viewers had.She was at a loss and "dead" as were viewers.

Michelle Fairley was amazing as always. Her face pretty much said it all, and I never expected the face shredding anyway (that would've either been expensive CGI or make up that looked unconvincing), so it worked for me. That said, I still would've preferred mad Cat before the throat slit, but I didn't mind too much.
