I am afraid this is my least favorite episode, not because of the massacre, but the way it was handled. For those who did not read the books, I can see how shocking it was, and I understand how they would feel. On the other hand, I did not see one Frey die during the red wedding (Lord Frey's wife doesn't count.). Graywind took out at least three as I recall. And the Umber that was present during the wedding was not taken meekly. The producer of this series makes such scenes too one sided in my view, and truth be told, people do fight back, and the bad guys take some serious losses that they are not too happy about. So, my problem with the television series is the portrayal of characters in terms of black and white while the books make them many shades of gray. I rated this episode as a '3'.
