Spoilers for Game of Thrones S06E08
Edmure Tully accepted to kill his uncle (he knew this would happen) and to give Riverrun back to the Freys/Lannisters.
I understood that he was afraid Jaime would kill his son & wife, but why did he care about them this much? I'm not a heartless fellow, but given this context:
- He said he never met this child and never saw his wife again after the wedding night;
- He was a prisoner of the Freys since the Red Wedding, so he was probably very mad with them;
- The existence of said son could easily be a lie;
- His marriage was arranged, it was purely political, he did not love his wife. In fact, as I remember, he just met her right before the wedding (on the same day, or just a few days prior);
Why would he choose the
lives of his son and wife over his uncle's and his family sovereignty?
