A perfect wedding includes a magnificent white dress, a decadent, multi-tiered wedding cake, and plenty of dancing well into the wee hours of the morning. But not every TV wedding can live up to the bride's expectations. In fact, some of the most memorable weddings in TV history were marred by blood, violence, and death. Here are some TV programs made infamous for featuring wedding-day bloodbaths. (Spoilers ahead!)
HBO's ultra-violent adaptation of "A Song of Fire and Ice" by George R. R. Martin has been both panned and adored by critics for explicit gore and brutality. But the worst is yet to come. Martin recently revealed in an interview that the storyline he most dreads seeing acted out will be coming up in either Season 3 or Season 4.
The event is called the Red Wedding, and (seriously, SPOILERS) it involves the murder of Robb and Catelyn Stark along with many men who were loyal to them. Martin calls it the hardest thing he's ever written, and it's sure to be a shocking episode when it eventually premieres.
The Season 2 finale of "Chuck" centered around Ellie and Devon's wedding, but things hardly went smoothly. Ted Roark shows up, gets involved in a gunfight, and a member of the special forces team kills Roark and three others. Sarah's breaks into wedding gifts and using cutlery to defend herself, and Casey breaks the skylight by parachuting through it. Oh, and the band Jeffster! finds a way to ruin the ceremony completely by singing over all the carnage.
In the first season episode "Love Always," Cal and his team are asked to provide security for a high-profile wedding reception. However, the groom is shot during the reception, and his blood gets splattered all over the white dress his bride is wearing. However, the story does still manage to have a happy ending: The groom recovers from his wound.
Clark Kent might have superpowers, but the one power he seems to lack is the ability to plan a wedding. The first time he and Lois try to get hitched, Lois is kidnapped and replaced by an evil clone with a penchant for snacking on froggies. The next time they try to tie the knot, the crazed woman who calls herself the Wedding Destroyer shows up.
