Arya Stark
Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane


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.

And so he spoke
2 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

Suffice to say that the tradition of the 9th episode of Game of Thrones seasons are still here. The much expected moment left me shaking for minutes after the episode finished.

This episode was not only the best of the series but the best of all the episodes of all the series.

From the acting, to the directing, to the score, this episode did everything right, and the north remembers.

Death is coming for everyone and everything, a darkness that will swallow the dawn.

I do not want to spoil anything, just go and watch it right now, watch out for spoilers.
