Unlike the Lannisters, whose family tree includes some of the most complex characters on Game of Thrones, and the Boltons, who have the best sigil, there’s nothing redeeming about House Frey. You don’t love to hate them; you simply hate them. That’s what made the season six finale and season seven premiere so cathartic: Arya Stark murdered Walder Frey, who helped orchestrate the Red Wedding against her family, and his boys Black Walder and Lothar (ruining pie in the promise) before poisoning and killing his other sons.
The former-No One spared Frey’s wives and handmaidens, but left them with a message: “When people ask you what happened here, tell them the North remembers. Tell them winter came for House Frey.” Yeah, about that…

- A ‘Game Of Thrones’ Star Is Interested In Returning For The Prequel Series
According to her resume, actress Danielle Galligan will be playing a character named “Sarra” in a season eight episode directed by David Nutter. The only instance of the name Sarra appearing in A Song of Ice and Fire is Sarra Frey, one of Walder Frey’s countless granddaughters. (Via)
Sarra actually appeared in season three’s “The Rains of Castamere,” as one of the girls Walder offers to Robb Stark (“You could’ve had either… could’ve had both, for all I care”), but it’s not like Game of Thrones hasn’t re-cast a character before. Also, Galligan’s skills highlight that she’s “certified [in] rapier & dagger,” so could she be trying to get revenge against Arya for her dead grandfather?
Hopefully Sansa hired better guards for Winterfell than these bumbling fools.
