Robb Stark Killed Off in Game of Thrones Season 3 Episode 9 Red Wedding

Character Robb Stark in Game of Thrones

What happened in Game of Thrones Season 3 Finale Episode 9 ("Red Wedding")?

If you haven't been on Twitter, then you may not know if you didn't catch the last episode.

This episode was based on "A Storm of Swords" (the third book by George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series.

The Following Information is Graphic In Nature and SPOILS the Game of Thrones Season 3 Finale (Epsiode 9)

Episode 9 (Red Wedding) is full of action, and Robb Stark dies. This was payback because Robb Stark did not marry Lord Walder Frey's daughter. So Walder Frey had all of the Starks killed.

Yes, Robb Stark is now dead. Most people did not see this coming so soon. Even the actor, Richard Madden got on a plane to London, and cried all the way home. You could say that he was a bit sad after Episode 9: Red Wedding.

As mentioned above, Robb Stark was not the only one to die in this gory episode, as most of the Stark family (including Robb's mother) met their doom, as well as faithful Stark soldiers. Sansa is still alive under the Lannister household, and Arya Stark - who was literally about to be reunited with her mother and brother in the episode.

Even U.S. News &World Report called the Red Wedding episode: "...one of the most graphic scenes in television history."

Author George R.R. Martin had a hard time writing this episode, as he revealed to Entertainment Weekly.

This episode is so pivotal and graphic, that many people had to watch it again to see everything that happened.

It is obvious that Walder Frey is not a patient man as he orchestrates the death of the Starks after Robb Stark chooses to marry Talisa instead of a daughter of Lord Walder Frey. He takes matters into his own hands to ensure Robb Stark is killed.

Robb Stark and The Stark Family Falls to the Sword in Episode 9

Robb Stark (the King of the North) is played by Richard Madden. Unfortunately, you will not be seeing any more of him, because he dies along with his pregnant wife Talisa. Catelyn Stark and the King's army also die an ugly death.

Talisa dies first, being stabbed in the stomach at the hands of Walder Frey. This is very sad to watch. Catelyn Stark then tries to stop this by grabbing Walder Frey's wife and holding a knife to her throat, to which he replies:  "I'll find another."

How Does Robb Stark Die in the book, Storm of Swords?

Everyone wants to know how Robb Stark dies. I have the answer right to the question: How does Robb Stark die?

In the book, Storm of Swords, page 583, Robb Stark dies at the hand of Roose Bolton with a sword through his chest. Roose Bolton was wearing a pink cloak, which happens to be the color of the House Bolton. Roose Bolton is seen many times wearing a pink cloak.

How does Robb Stark die in the Game of Thrones Season 3 Episode 9?


In the television show (Season 3, Episode 9) Robb Stark is stabbed through the heart by Roose Bolton. Obviously in the Game of Thrones, Episode 9 Season 3 Finale, Roose Bolton is not wearing a pink cloak as he stabs Robb Stark through the heart (see picture above).

Who dies next?


Catelyn Stark cuts the throat of the girl she is holding captive. Catelyn Stark then has to watch her eldest son die, and then she has her own throat slit. 

When it comes down to it, King Robb Stark wound up much like his Father (Ned Stark) after making bad decisions on the throne. Because of his untimely death, it looks like he will not be the ruler of the Seven Kingdoms. 

This should come as a shock to fans of the show. Many fans now see the deviousness of Walder Frey, and will be watching him very closely in future episodes.

Most importantly, all of this implications of this episode will be seen in the Season 3 Finale of Game of Thrones.
