Remember Season 3 Episode 9 (Rains of Castamere)? Game of Thrones fans who are watching the new Netflix series Medici: Masters of Florence were in for a shock when they saw Richard Madden (Robb Stark) and David Bradley (Walder Frey) together after the former’s character was brutally murdered at the infamous Red Wedding in the hit HBO fantasy show.
And that’s not all! Fans are convinced that Netflix is trolling them with this particular casting because Bradley is playing Cosimo de Medici’s (Madden) father in law- which strangely, he almost was in Game of Thrones. Check out some of the fan tweets below.

Two episodes into Medici and Robb Stark just promised to marry Walder Frey’s daughter. I know how this ends…

So the guy who played Walder Frey is marrying his daughter to guy who played Robb Stark in Medici. This can only go one way.

watching #MediciMastersOfFlorence… does David Bradley has a contract clause requiring him to always play Richard Madden’s father-in-law?

Stop it. Medici: Masters of Florence has Walder Frey playing Cosimo’s (Richard Madden) father-in-law. That is solid Red Wedding trolling
