People were freaked out by yesterday's episode. Really? Did they learn nothing from the life of Ned Stark and what TV has been for the past 13 years? Not to mention what literature has been for the past thousands? And what life—don't forget life! I understand the reaction, and think its a sign that the art is doing things exactly right, but you should know by now that in this world and in the world of fiction, nothing and no one are safe.
