Game of Thrones: Edmure is allowed to enter Riverrun

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 08 No One

Jaime talks with Edmure, trying to win his cooperation by tempting him with seeing his newborn son; who he has never seen; and offering to send him and his family to Casterly Rock, away from the Freys. Jaime then says he wants to take Riverrun to be back with Cersei, and he is willing to do anything to achieve it, even if it means killing every Tully he finds, including Edmure and his son. Jaime then sends Edmure to parley with the Blackfish. Despite the Blackfish’s protests, the Tully soldiers allow Edmure entry into the castle.

EDMURE: You didn’t come here to talk about our sisters.
JAIME: That’s exactly why I came here. I love Cersei. You can laugh at that if you want. You can sneer. Doesn’t matter. She needs me. And to get back to her, I have to take Riverrun. I’ll send for your baby boy. And I’ll launch him into Riverrun with a catapult. Because you don’t matter to me, Lord Edmure. Your son doesn’t matter to me. The people in the castle don’t matter to me. Only Cersei. And if I have to slaughter every Tully who ever lived to get back to her, that’s what I’ll do.

GUARD: Who goes there?
EDMURE: Edmure Tully, son of Hoster Tully and the rightful Lord of Riverrun. I demand entry.
BLACKFISH: Don’t let him in.
GUARD: He’s the Lord of Riverrun. I have to obey his commands.
BLACKFISH: He’s been their captive ever since they murdered his king at the Red Wedding. Why do you think the people who murdered his king at the Red Wedding would decide to let him come home? Because it’s a trap, you idiot. Don’t let him in.
GUARD: He’s my lord, my lord. I’ve sworn to serve the Lord of Riverrun and obey his commands.
BLACKFISH: You’re not obeying Edmure’s commands. You’re obeying the fucking Kingslayer’s commands.
EDMURE: I demand entry.
GUARD: My lord has given an order.
BLACKFISH: With a knife to his throat. That is not a valid order.
GUARD: Lower the drawbridge and open the gate for Lord Ed–
GUARD: Aye, ser.
BLACKFISH: I’ll have your head before I surrender Riverrun.
GUARD: You are not lord of this castle, my lord. Lower the drawbridge.
GUARD: Aye, ser!
