We’ve seen a bunch of reactions to this week’s episode of Game of Thrones. First, there was the supercut of fan reactions the day after it aired. Then GoT star Maisie Williams posted her own terrific reaction on Vine. Then there was this, which Josh described as the final Red Wedding reaction image you’d need. Then author George R.R. Martin went on Conan and reacted to the reactions.
But it turns out that the best and most accurate response to the much-reacted-to scene was actually given to us a quarter century ago by Fred Savage, as this wonderful, spoiler-filled Princess Bride/Game of Thrones mash-up proves. Yes, we’ve seen The Princess Bride and Game of Thrones mashed-up before (excellently, I might add), but that doesn’t make what’s happening here any less special. Enjoy.
