Giggling genius, and occasionally petulant maniac, Game of Thrones scribe George R. R. Martin wants you to be terrified. He told Conan O'Brien as much last night. As the books' author and architect of last week's Red Wedding insanity, he is very clearly a sociopath. You guys saw that, right? We can't stop muttering, 'Holy shit' to ourselves every time we think of it.
Obviously enough other people had the same reaction, because everyone and their cousin posted their reactions on You Tube, like you do. Conan sat down and forced Martin to watch the shock and horror he brought down upon them and a nation of Thrones fans. Men and women alike shrieked like girls on a doomed roller coaster, formerly indifferent old dudes sat agape, and everyone seemed a little emptier inside. Martin's reaction? More maniacal giggling. Damn you, George, damn you. When do we get more?
