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 orders 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.

Daario Naharis: There. It's a back gate. My men use it when they visit Yunkai's bed slaves.
Jorah Mormont: Your men, but not you?
Daario Naharis: I have no interest in slaves. A man cannot make love to property.
[Daenerys gives Daario a sidelong glance]
Daario Naharis: This is where we enter the city. Very few guards. They know me. They let me inside...
Barristan Selmy: We're not going to sneak an army through a back gate.
Daario Naharis: I kill the guards. I take your two best men and lead them through the back streets, which I know well, and open the front gates. Then comes the army. ...

Like images of a long past but soul-ripping War, I remember. I did not see this coming, not at the slightest. Personally I think the only ones who knew, where the ones who read the books. Only them! I did think the Episode was building up to something, an unexpected Ending. Game of Thrones definitely requires more than the ordinary television viewer. This show will challenge you to hold on, like a roller coaster it will sometimes slowly go up, just to speed down, twist and roll till it pushes you towards the edge of vomiting. If you think GoT is a bad series, you probably have no Idea what makes a good one. Enjoy, and try not to fall apart!
