No Suits reblogs? You're killing Cat Stark all over again. How dare you? Disappoint!

HA!  I am shamed. 

…but thought some soulless miscreants people might be a bit over all of the Catelyn/Fairley worship on FYW.

…will remedy in 3…2…

I actually hadn’t seen [The Rains of Castamere] until about two weeks ago and I was doing a commentary for HBO and you’re meant to talk when you see these things about, Oh we did that on this day, and I hadn’t seen it so I was actually really quite stunned and also a bit teary because it’s emotional and…watching Richard Madden -who plays Robb, my son- when he gets slaughtered…I was practically in bits I couldn’t speak. And it’s just like radio, the last thing you want on radio is dead silence. You don’t want silence, you want a reaction, apart from crying…

Emmys 2013 wishlist: Michelle Fairley of ‘Game of Thrones’

While the murders of Robb and Talisa at the Red Wedding were horrifying, it was Fairley’s performance during this sequence that gave it the emotional gravity it needed. Catelyn was the one to first realize the Freys’ betrayal, Catelyn was the one who begged heartbreakingly for her son’s life to be spared and Catelyn was the one whose scream after Robb’s death echoed through the episode’s silent end credits. Fairley’s performance was so powerful that we still get chills thinking about it, and giving her an Emmy nomination (and hopefully a win) would be a small way to honor one of the most disturbing, horrifying and moving events in scripted television history. That epic death scene demands it…

Sadly Madden and Chaplin’s names were not submitted for a chance at Emmy gold, so Fairley is the only actress who was present at the Red Wedding who could potentially win an Emmy. The “Game of Thrones” actors who Emmy voters could have nominated are Coster-Waldau (Outstanding Supporting Actor), Dinklage (Outstanding Supporting Actor), Kit Harington (Outstanding Supporting Actor), Emilia Clarke (Outstanding Supporting Actress), Dormer (Outstanding Supporting Actress), Lena Headey (Outstanding Supporting Actress), Sibel Kekilli (Outstanding Supporting Actress), Ciaran Hinds (Outstanding Guest Actor), Rigg (Outstanding Guest Actress) and Fairley. While there’s an argument for all of these and Rigg is a shoe-in for the Guest Actress slot (or at least she’d better be), it’s Fairley who deserves this honor. After all, the North remembers.

Conleth HIll (Varys) is also on 'Suits'?! It's like a GoT reunion!

Yep! His character has been recurring since last season.  And apparently, Hill’s character, Edward Darby, and Ava Hessington, the character Michelle Fairley is playing, have a past…which is doubly cool/interesting considering the actors grew up together.

I mean, even in death on this show, Catelyn Stark can’t catch a fucking break…
