Following the Red Wedding, soldiers from House Bolton and House Whitehill rampage through the Wolfswood in an effort to suppress further rebellion against House Bolton. A group of three, led by a Whitehill soldier named Britt, eventually come across Gared's father's homestead. There, they kill his pigs and his daughter, and mortally wounded him. As the soldiers are trying to slaughter a pig, his son Gared Tuttle arrives back from the Red Wedding. Enraged at the soldiers' actions, Gared overpowers and kills one or both of Britt's underlings, while Britt himself escapes. Gared then rushes his dying father, who informs him of his sister's demise. The old man dies in his son's arms not long after.
