So it looks like Sen. Claire McCaskill was on to something when she stopped watching HBO’s “Game of Thrones” after the brutal scene of fan-favorite Sansa Stark getting raped on her wedding night.

Tonight’s episode featuring another fan favorite from this season, King Stannis Baratheon, letting his daughter Shireen get burned alive as a sacrifice to the god R’hllor!

(Update: Recap of the episode here.)

Fans of the show are pissed, to say the least:

Wow. And there’s still one episode left this season!
