Pregnant Talisa Stark’s Death on Game of Thrones: Did They Go Too Far? (POLL)

We are still picking up the pieces of our shattered hearts after tonight's mind-blowing Game of Thrones Season 3 Episode 9, "The Rains of Castamere," which is better known as the infamous Red Wedding episode. Yes, there were multiple shocking deaths tonight (R.I.P., Robb Stark!), but the one that's still got our neck hairs on end is the stabbing of Robb's pregnant wife Talisa and her unborn baby.

Everthing appeared to be going great at Edmure's wedding to Roslin Frey. That is, until "The Rains of Castamere," a Lannister song, started to play. Then all hell broke loose.

Frey holds up his hand to stop the music, declaring that he has yet to give his new queen (AKA Talisa, Robb's wife) a present. Cat looks down and notices that Roose Bolton is wearing armor, but as she's putting two and two together, Talisa is stabbed multiple times in the stomach — and the result is brutal. Slaughter breaks out everywhere, as all of Robb's men are attacked. Robb himself is shot full of arrows. But he somehow manages to crawl to his dead wife and unborn child. It's a heartbreaking scene, considering that just minutes prior, Talisa told Robb how if they had a son, she'd like to name him Eddard. Cue the sobs

But did Game of Thrones finally go too far with Talisa's death scene? Sure, we've seen King Robert's bastards taken from their mothers and killed in Season 1, but seeing Robb's pregnant wife get stabbed multiple times in the stomach was especially unsettling.

Do you think the show went too far with her (and her baby's) super-graphic death, or do you think violent scenes like that are all par for the course in the fight for the Iron Throne? Sound off below!

How will it all end? The Game of Thrones Season 3 finale happens next Sunday, June 9, 2013, on HBO at 9 p.m. ET/PT.
