Rory Snow Posted June 28, 2016 Share Posted June 28, 2016 Walder Frey and a couple sons are dead. Who knows how many Freys Arya took out but prob'ly not many, opting rather for the cutting off the head of the snake approach. But their leadership is gone, they are generally stupid and hated by all, so the Frey's hold on the Riverlands would seem tenuous at best. Edmure is in a cell in The Twins, the rest of the Tully vassals are presumed scattered, so the Tullys seem in no position to capitalize. The Lannisters have Kings Landing and Casterly Rock and nothing else. They are geographically surrounded by enemies and could desperately use the help of the Riverlands, but committing forces to hold them would leave Kings Landing virtually undefended. The North & the Vale are allied, if they took the Riverlands they would have a stranglehold on all northern territories, but getting thru the Twins, even poorly defended is difficult and time consuming. Dany is the wild card, but as yet, nobody seems to be accounting for her. So... the question becomes, who makes the big move and takes control of the Riverlands?
