Emotional “Game of Thrones” fans have been going berserk ever since the “Rains of Castamere” episode aired on Sunday. They helped to make the HBO hit-show a trending topic throughout Monday and even grabbed the attention of Maisie Williams, one of the series' biggest stars who plays Arya Stark. She made a tongue-in-cheek video on Vine where she gave her own reaction to what fans are calling the “Red Wedding” episode.

The Vine vid starts out with Williams having a blank look on her face. Then she begins speaking in a accent, that seems like it’s supposed to be Southern, and says, “They dead. Like so dead. Like o.m.g dead. My mother and brother are dead.”
The looped video has already gotten more than 3,000 likes since she posted it to Vine and has garnered more than 200 comments. Fans loved the video, with many telling the 16-year-old actress they signed up to the site just to see the “*spoiler ep9*” clip she made.
There was a mix of “I love yous” and “I hate yous” that flooded the comments, but some people got more specific. Sloane Chavez wrote, “Rub salt in my wounds why don’t ya” and Jesse McElwain added, “Yeah but you ain’t so thank the old gods and new for that.” Those who had read the books written by George R.R. Martin were dreading the episode, but fans unfamiliar with the series were shocked by the gruesome event.
Here’s a quick rundown of the characters killed off: Robb Stark and his mother Catelyn Tully, Arya’s brother and mother, die in the episode at the hands of Welder Frey and Roose Boltonjust as the actress claimed. If that wasn’t enough, Robb’s pregnant wife Talisa Maegyr is stabbed in the belly and also murdered.
The third season of “Game of Thrones” will be complete after the final episode airs on HBO Sunday at 9/8c.
