Articles for Game of Thrones Season 3

Game of Thrones returned for season 3 with an episode that checked in with many of the major characters as they prepare for new lives. If there‘s a common theme throughout all the stories, it‘s about people doing what they can to get what they want. Tyrion Lannister wants respect, Daenerys Targaryen wants an army, Margaery Tyrell wants power and Sansa Stark finally wants to get the hell out of King‘s Landing.  Read more »

Game of Thrones is back and season 3 is already showing that it‘s going to be bigger and better than ever before!

In the second episode of Game of Thrones season 3, all of the Stark children show up and make some new acquaintances. Some are archers, some are wargs and others are sassy old ladies.

Game of Thrones is getting a little out of control in season 3 with about a thousand different locations and new characters. This week we travel to nine different places where Catelyn‘s dad‘s funeral, Theon‘s escape attempt, a Small Council meeting, a farewell to Hot Pie, a deal for dragons and some rather serious consequences for Jaime Lannister. There are also two different threats of rape, which isn‘t very pleasant.  Read more »
Daenerys Targaryen is a bad-ass. Actually, no. After this week‘s episode of Game of Thrones, "bad-ass" doesn‘t accurately describe how amazing this woman is. Not only does the Mother of Dragons get her army, but she commits an awesome double cross and comes out stronger than ever. If Game of Thrones ends with anything other than Daenerys Targaryen sitting on the Iron Throne (preferably with Jon Snow as her husband or Hand), I will be disappointed.  Read more »

This week Game of Thrones turned into a bit of a romantic soap opera. Jaime Lannister proved that he would do anything for love, even fight a bear. Robb Stark got some joyous news after some naked, sexy time with his wife. Tyrion and Sansa both came to grips with their impending marriage. And Jon Snow and Ygritte bantered like lovestruck teenagers.  Read more »
