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 Yunkai based on information provided by Daario. Brandon learns the strength of his powers. Jon Snow is forced to choose between the Watch and Ygritte.

The North will never forget
16 September 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This episode is the best episode of any show that i have ever seen. I had heard before watching it that it was going to be a good episode, and i expected it to be just as good as many other episodes from the show. When i watched it though, my mind was blown. I literally had my mouth open, staring at the screen, amazed at the intensity of the episode. i wouldn't change a thing about this episode, the directing, acting, writing is perfect. There is a reason its rating is so high, but i think it should be higher. The whole story of the show contributes to the greatness f this episode, the quality of the previous episodes all combining into this one episode. It left me shaking for an hour after it finished, i questioned if what i saw was real, that it cant have just happened. if you haven't seen this episode you have not lived.
