A bar full of ‘Game of Thrones’ fans react to the show’s latest twist
Warning: Spoilers ahead!
The award-winning HBO fantasy series is notorious for its twists, in which anything can happen and no-one is safe. However, the books the series is based on are currently ahead of events in the show (though perhaps not for long!), meaning book readers still know more-or-less what is to come.
For more mischievous Game of Thrones fans, this presents the perfect opportunity to capture some killer reaction videos. The Internet exploded with them after Season 3’s infamous “Red Wedding” scene; now, a Chicago bar has decided to take it to a whole new level.
Every Sunday, The Burlington Bar invites fans to come and watch the latest episode live, whilst they record their reactions and subsequently post them online. And last week’s episode—”The Mountain and the Viper”—produced some pretty fantastic reactions, as Oberyn Martell duelled Gregor Clegane to decide Tyrion’s fate.
Watch it all below, and jump to the 2:35 mark for the exact moment the watchers’ jubilation turns to horror, when they realize this isn’t going to be a happy ending for Oberyn.
Game of Thrones, never change.
