This was a revenge plot against the Lannisters who murdered Eddard Stark, husband and father to Catelyn and Robb. House Stark needed to form an alliance with Walder Frey that would allowed them to enter Casterly Rock. However, the relationship between the two houses were rocky at this point, since Robb broke a promise to marry one of Frey’s daughters for true love. Instead, his uncle, Edmure Tully was to wed one of Lord Frey’s daughters. The Stark army made their way to the Twins, home of the Freys, where they were greeted with salt and bread.

Because I walked to school on a regular basis, I always knew where to go, even during the renovations. I mean, I could…
