Where did Robb Stark go wrong

Game of Thrones ‘Red Wedding: What to Expect

This evening game of Thrones Episode, titled "The Rains of Castamere," is said to be the infamous Red Wedding and Got Fans who read A song of ice and fire Tell me it's gonna be a big deal I haven't read the book though, so I asked our friends at Wetpaint to let them know what I can expect.

Here's what they said (Attention: MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!):

Tully and Frey join the houses. In this book, Edmure Tully marries Walder Frey's daughter Roslin Frey at the Red Wedding. Edmure is quite relieved to see that his bride is very pretty as his main concern in the wedding was the appearance of his new bride. We soon learn that he should worry about a lot more ...The rain of Castamaer. As soon as Edmure and his bride have been kidnapped into their bedchamber, the band immediately changes the melody to the Lannister battle song “The Rains of Castamere”. This signals the start of the upcoming slaughter, and since that's the title of the episode we're pretty confident that it will be recorded.

Robb Stark is shot. Yes. Half the band pulls crossbows and fills Robb with arrows, while Cat looks on in horror and all hell breaks loose. In the book, Smalljon Umber throws a table over Robb to protect him for a while.

Roose Bolton is a bastard. Roose Bolton and his men are implicated in this betrayal. As his men enter the castle, Cat thinks it should save the Starks from the Freys - until one of them chops off the smalljon's head. As we said, we might not see Smalljon, but we expect a lot of bloodbath.

Cat tries to negotiate. In the books, Cat grabs one of Walder Frey's grandchildren and sticks a knife in his throat in hopes that Walder will let Robb live, but Walder doesn't care (probably because he's like 90 grandchildren). He's really upset with Robb's broken marriage vows.

Robb is killed. Roose Bolton kills Robb. Like I said, bastard.

Cat is killed. You didn't think they'd stop with a Stark death, did you? There is nothing> Got is better than killing Starks! After Robb is killed, Cat Walder's grandson slits the throat, and then the Freys do the same for her. It's a pretty dramatic scene so we don't expect the show to change it up too much. We hope, of course, that you have the courage to let Cat become a killer.

Arya shows up. We saw Arya and The Hound on their way to the wedding, and they appear in the book right after the carnage. The dog immediately sees that something has gone wrong and suspects that Robb and Cat were killed, but Arya tries to run to see for herself. In the books, this chapter ends with the departure of Arya. Is she dying too? The show might leave it on a cliffhanger like the book did at the end of the chapter.

The bodies are desecrated. After the fact, the Freys behead Robb and his direwolf Gray Wolf and sew the wolf's head onto Robb's body and attach a crown to him. Then they throw Cat’s body naked in the river to make fun of Tully’s burial tradition (like the one we saw at Hoster Tully earlier this season). > Got Never shy away from gore or nudity, so we wouldn't be surprised to see some variations of these scenes make it onto the show either this week or next week.

Ouch! So much is going to happen, I can't wait to watch. For more game of Thrones Red wedding content, you can check out Wetpaint's coverage here!
