Game of Thrones Season 5 Spoiler: Will Walder Frey Return?
One character who was conspicuously absent from Game of Thrones Season 4 was Walder Frey, the chief perpetrator of the now-infamous Red Wedding. We were a little disappointed he didn’t show up, not because we missed him, but because we wanted to see some revenge for what he did! So will he turn up in Season 5 and, hopefully, get what’s coming to him?
“I bumped into [showrunner] David Benioff and a few of the Starks that I, um, got rid of at Comic Con in San Diego last year, and we all had a meal and a drink. And they said, ‘Oh, we’ll be seeing you again soon,’” actor David Bradley, tells IGN. “Obviously not in the fourth season, but I’m sure there’s some kind of retribution waiting for me somewhere down the line. But I like to think he gets away with it. [laughs].”
While it’s not confirmation, the fact that Benioff said we’ll be seeing Walder Frey again “soon” right before Season 4 leads us to believe that Walder will pop up in Season 5. Bradley seems to think Walder won’t end up receiving any punishment for his treachery, and though we hope that’s not the case, we think he might be right. This is Game of Thrones, after all!
