You have to be living under a rock to not have fallen under the spell of the HBO series Game of Thrones. In last night’s episode titled “Rain of Castamere” the series continued to have everyone on their seats with the intense turn of events. Be warned, this article contains some spoilers, so stop reading if you haven’t checked out episode nine yet.
The “Red” episode of Game of Thrones was everything like the chapter within Storm of Swords, shocking and bleak. First, to everyone’s surprise, Roslin Frey, sister of the homey Freys, turned out to be beautiful. That, however, was the calmest part of the episode.
The most dramatic scene, however, was the tragic death of fan favorite, Robb. The episode had viewers spiraling as they watched the domino effect of Robb watching his wife and unborn child die, then when Cat watched as Robb died by a shower of arrows, and finally as Cat sought revenge by slitting the neck of Walder’s wife before coming into her own death.
Walder Frey rose to be one of the biggest monsters on the already dark show. His rise in the ranks was aided by the Lannisters and the turncoat Lord Bolton, who revealed to Robb the entire scheme, in which Lord Tywin gained enough power to turn all other avenues against him. Even readers of the book couldn’t prepare themselves to see it all pan out on screen.
