Storyline

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.

Wow....just wow.
2 June 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I've never read the books so everything that happens when I see the program is the first time I've experienced it. I consider this a gift because the show has directions I just can't anticipate. Especially this episode.

This episode may be my favorite so far. It was wonderful and absolutely gut-wrenching. Every scene had so much meaning and involved my emotions to the point that I actually cried out during the ending. I've been watching television shows for forty years now and I've never had a show that affected me the way this one does and in particular this episode.

The ending.....wow...just wow.

I really couldn't believe what I was watching. It tore my heart out and made me realize how unbelievably evil some of the characters are on this show. The acting during that final scene was amazing and I am thoroughly impressed by the production values.

This episode is one of the most powerful things I've ever seen on any show. It was stunning and perfect.....absolutely perfect. They couldn't have made it better.
