SPOILER ALERTS! Red Wedding, the next wedding, etc...
Ok, so I'm curious how people who have read the book feel about some of the things that have occurred over the season so far. 

My biggest issue with the red wedding was Talisa being there. Yes, she was pregnant, but in the book, she did NOT go to the wedding. Frey was actually upset that he didn't get to see what woman had been chosen over his daughters. The fact that she was written in to the scene gave me a heart attack right out of the gate. The wedding was bad enough, but to add her into the scene was messed up and the way she was killed made it even more gruesome. Like a lot of people, I put the book down after reading the red wedding because it upset me so much. Good to know I wasn't alone.

What's to come in the last episode? I couldn't tell you. I knew that they had to get ONE of the weddings out of the way. There IS another wedding coming, but whether or not they show it is unknown. In that wedding another major character will die and it's a character that some will be happy about.

But IF they go there next week, there are occurrences that happen with the alleged killer that will have to flesh itself out also because it would be an awkward season ender to do one without the other. If they DO allow it to happen, then TWO major characters will die next episode.  I find that hard to believe since there is so much that transpires in the book, that I just don't see that as an option for one single episode.  All of the focus would have to be on that one family for there to be enough time and it will seem haphazard.

The episode teaser (Game Of Thrones Season 3 - Episode #10 Preview) really does a good job and not showing much at all and looks to be only to serve to tie up some loose ends.

But for the readers of the series, what ground do you think the last season episode will cover?
