‘Game of Thrones’ season 3, episode 9 review: A bad day for a red wedding

Game of ThronesSunday night’s “Game of Thrones” episode was an event that just about everyone who has read the George R.R. Martin books saw coming quite some time ago. But did it actually end up satisfying everything that fans were legitimately hoping to see? That is something that will be up for debate for quite a while moving forward.

We’ll basically sum this up rather simply here in saying that the long-awaited wedding of one of Walder Frey’s daughters ended up becoming a massive revenge plot in secret. He and his forces basically massacred and decimated all of Robb Stark’s forces, including Robb himself, his wife Talisa, and his mother Catelyn.

Were there some changes between this scene and the books? There were, and there may be some disappointed by them and also curious as to how it impacts the future of the series. However, the major implications surrounding Robb’s death are still there, since it dramatically alters the balance of power.

Elsewhere, the important things to know now are as follows: Dany and her own forces managed to take Yunkai for themselves, Jon Snow decided, to use another classic song title reference as we did in naming this article, to go his own way, and we also are inching ever closer to something very important for Arya (even if she is still forced to deal with The Hound for the time being). Overall, an action-packed, game-changing episode, and one that is setting up for a spectacular finale.
