I don't own a TV. From that we can deduce that I don't watch TV. And therefore I don't watch Game of Thrones.
I'm not likely to, either. But I'm a bit curious. Apparently last night's episode had a shocking event in it. What happened?
All I know is that the phrase "red wedding" is involved, somehow. (It was the title on a YouTube which showed people's shocked reaction to watching the event.)
(Note: the answer to my question is bound to be a spoiler. Please use spoiler tags.)
Ace won't say what happened, but he says it was handled badly in the show, shortchanged. "It was better in the book."
Dork Tower was about it, today.
UPDATE: Oh, and before anyone asks: Anime isn't TV. Anime is life. Anime doesn't count.
UPDATE: Wildassed guess:
If that's it, Dallas already did that.
UPDATE: I found this on Wikipedia:
So I guess you had to be there, as they say. It would probably be more affecting if I knew the characters and was invested in the show.
UPDATE: Pixy, formatting problem: I used to have a "quote" inside the "spoiler" tag, and it displayed in clear. I rearranged it with the "spoiler" inside the "quote" and now it's hidden.

King Joffrey's parentage alone guaranteed that it would happen; Joffrey is Cersei Lannister's son and she's not exactly known for dealing lightly with her enemies...and at that point it was already obvious that Joffrey was beyond the Queen Regent's control. The scene between him, Arya, and the butcher's boy much earlier in season one was highly instructive as to what kind of person Joffrey was, and it seemed obvious to me what was going to happen once Ned started learning the truth of things; it was just a matter of when and how, not if.
The TV series has been enjoyable, the books a bit on the plodding side, but overall I think it's been worth my time.

Regarding the books being plodding, it worked (?) for Ayn Rand and Terry Goodkind. Who doesn't like 3-page descriptions of the food at a feast, or a 6-page monologue a normal person could have gotten out in a couple of paragraphs?
