Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Robb, his wife Talisa and mother Catelyn arrive for the marriage of Edmure Tully to one of Walder Frey's daughters. There is considerable tension between the two families but Robb's sincere apology for not marrying one of Frey's daughters is well received. It doesn't stop the elderly Frey from being both crude and rude towards his guests. Edmure is pleasantly surprised to see that his bride is to be Frey's prettiest granddaughter, Roslin. The festivities continue but Walder Frey has something very special planned. Arya and Sandor Clegane arrive at the Twins but too late to do anything. Daenerys meanwhile order the attack on Junkai based on information provided by Daario. Brandon learns the strength of his powers. Jon Snow is forced to choose between the Watch and Ygritte.

Eyes blurred with tears
7 June 2013 | by (Zagreb, Croatia) – See all my reviews

I have to say, after watching this episode, that this is by far the best episode of any series I've watched. Ever. I just sat there, silent, with tears in my eyes, thinking about what I just saw. Speechless and touched.

So emotional, so dark, so intense and so brilliantly directed. Highly recommended. Cast in the series is awesome and it's not hard to "feel" the characters.

I loved every bit of this episode. Music was beautiful, characters were beautifully portrayed, there were funny and sad moments, I just can't describe my feelings while watching this episode and even now, after a few days.

I will just say: The North remembers.
