Riverlands , led by House Frey. The North , led by House Bolton. Riverlands , led by House Tully. The King in the North , Robb Stark , his mother Catelyn , and most of his three thousand five hundred soldiers are slaughtered. However, Walder would never have gone along with the massacre which violated all the sacred laws of hospitality without the promise of protection from Lord Tywin Lannister , the Hand of the King to Joffrey I Baratheon. During the War of the Five Kings , the Freys initially rise in rebellion against the Iron Throne , securing an invaluable strategic position for the northmen. After learning of the broken pact, Walder secretly begins corresponding with Roose, who has wed Walder's granddaughter Walda , and Lord Tywin Lannister for terms to bring House Frey back as a supporter of the Iron Throne. Before parting, Jaime and Roose agree to give the other's regards to Robb and Tywin. A ploy is developed in which Walder lures Robb to the Twins, under the pretense of an invite to another marriage pact, to allegedly forgive Robb's broken vow. After Robb and his army arrive at the western castle of the Twins, he apologizes to Walder for his slight and Catelyn Stark asks for bread and salt to secure guest right.
The sequence was a largely faithful adaptation of a chapter in George R. Here the GoT team in a combination of new and previous EW interviews takes us through the creation and filming the haunting affair. Everybody is going to expect that.
But fans are always going to call it by its other name: The Red Wedding. Tonight Thrones reached a crescendo of sorts. This hour concluded with a scene book-reader fans have alternately anticipated and dreaded since the show was first announced.
Of all the horrible, heartbreaking events Game of Thrones has put us through, the Red Wedding remains the most difficult to watch. Robb Stark was the great hope that one day the Lannisters would pay and Ned Stark's death would be avenged. All those hopes were wiped out in a single moment as the Freys and the Boltons orchestrated a horrifying act of treachery. The entire sequence is an emotionally draining and heartbreaking thing to watch. But if you think reading it in the books would be any easier, you're very mistaken.
