But fans are always going to call it by its other name: The Red Wedding. Tonight Thrones reached a crescendo of sorts. This hour concluded with a scene book-reader fans have alternately anticipated and dreaded since the show was first announced. Yet he approached it like a general over the five-day shoot of The Twins scenes and drew praise from the actors. Martin, Richard Madden and Michelle Fairley. Robb and Catelyn like the plan, but it hinges on Lord Walder Frey giving them more troops.
The sequence was a largely faithful adaptation of a chapter in George R. Here the GoT team in a combination of new and previous EW interviews takes us through the creation and filming the haunting affair. Everybody is going to expect that. So immediately [killing Robb] became the next thing I had to do.
Of all the horrible, heartbreaking events Game of Thrones has put us through, the Red Wedding remains the most difficult to watch. Robb Stark was the great hope that one day the Lannisters would pay and Ned Stark's death would be avenged. All those hopes were wiped out in a single moment as the Freys and the Boltons orchestrated a horrifying act of treachery. The entire sequence is an emotionally draining and heartbreaking thing to watch. But if you think reading it in the books would be any easier, you're very mistaken. While the outcome is just as tragic in the books and show, there are plenty of differences with characters who were involved, how the massacre unfolded and the aftermath.
