Tonight on HBO GAME OF THRONES returns with the premiere of it’s third season. If you’re like us then you’re just waiting for the new season and all the usual amazingness. Season 1 and 2 of GoT were wonderful and HBO better not let us down.
Before tonight’s show here is where some of our favorite character were at the end of season 2. Ned Stark’s daughter Arya and her friends Gendry and Hot Pie escaped Harrenhal and began walking towards her brother Robb’s forces in the Riverlands. Bran was headed for the Wall. Brienne of Tarth has Jamie Lannister and she is headed to King’s Landing to trade for Sansa and Arya. Daenerys Targaryen (Danys) is looking for a boat to sail to the Westeros. Joffrey Baratheon has gotten rid of Sansa and is now looking to marry Margaery Tyrel. Jon Snow is pretending to be a traitor so he can get close to the King Beyond the Wall, Mance Rayder. Stannis lost at Blackwater and has gone to Dragonstone. Theon Greyjoy was in a spot of trouble. Tyrion Lannister was hurt in the battle and is scarred and put aside by his family again. Tywin Lannister is the hero of Blackwater and removes his son Tyrion as the Hand of The King. If you missed last season’s season 2 finale, we have a full and detailed recap here for you!
In the new season the Lannisters hold total power over King’s Landing after defeating Stannis Baratheon’s forces. Stannis has retreated to Dragonstone. Robb Stark, King in the North, still controls much of the South as well, and has yet to lose a battle. Meanwhile Daenerys Targaryen is reunited with her three dragons and is searching for ships and allies to take her home and allies to conquer it.
On tonight’s show Jon Snow is brought before Mance Rayder, the King Beyond the Wall, while the Night’s Watch survivors retreat south. In King’s Landing, Tyrion asks for his reward. Littlefinger offers Sansa a way out. Cersei hosts a dinner for the royal family. Daenerys sails into Slaver’s Bay.
It looks like Joffrey Baratheon is going to be as evil as ever this season. Jack Gleeson who plays the character said, “I think he’s as evil as he ever was but he’s channeling it through a different means. There’s a different dynamic – he’s trying to impress Margaery with his evil deeds and he’s still rebelling against his mother.”
We will be live blogging the episode at 9PM EST . . . so make sure to come back to this spot and watch the show with us. Make sure to refresh often so you get the most current info!
