Season 3: Episode 5, Kissed by Fire

What did we learn from the last episode?. . . . . Do not mess with Daenerys! Now she's got her army and all 3 dragons, what's does she have planned?

In episode 5, ''Kissed by Fire'', The time comes for The Hound to be Judged by the gods, Jaime is brought before Roose Bolton, Jon must prove himself further to the Wildlings, Robb is betrayed and Tyrion learns the cost of weddings.

In the synopsis for this episode we are told that Robb get's betrayed by someone! But who? Is it Roose Bolton? The Karstarks? His mother, again? Robb has won all of his battles thus far, however since Catelyn let The Kingslayer go, things have started to go a bit belly up for him,and it seems they aren't going to improve anytime soon.

The Lannisters feel someone is plotting against them, but who? It may be the Tyrells decision to marry Loras and Sansa. What will there solution be? Whatever it is Tyrion doesn't seem happy about it! (I know what they want him to do, but I don't want to spoil things for those who haven't read the books!)

To me, Thoros of Myr seems a lot more legitimate and sane, than that crazy bitch with Stannis. He doesn't seem to want to sacrifice any humans to the Red God for no reason. Plus Dondarrion's flaming sword isn't stuck in the fire to ignite in flames!

Jon must climb the Wall with the Wildlings! He also get's down and dirty with Ygritte!!! Will there be a naked Jon Snow? I certainly hope so!!

Possible Spoiler Alert!!
After the last episode I'm 95% sure that the people who have Theon Greyjoy are Ramsay Snow and his men!

Season 3: Episode 4: And Now His Watch is Ended

I am finding it very difficult to predict what's going to happen in each episode this season as they have made so many changes to all the storylines. However I don't doubt it will still be an epic series and when the episode with the ''Red Wedding'' airs I know everyone will both love it and hate it at the same time. It's one of my favourite and most hated events in the books.

So what and who can we expect to see in episode 4 (And Now His Watch Is Ended) of Game of Thrones?

The Nights Watch have reached Crasters Keep after they were attacked by the White Walkers, they must now take stock and try to get back to the Wall to warn everyone. However are they safe there? As we all know Craster gives his new born son's to the walkers, can he be trusted? Trouble seem's to be brewing Sam seem's very eager to leave!

Daenery's hands over one of her dragons for an army, but Kraznys mo Nakloz seems unsure and wary, as he holds the dragon! If he will be able to control the dragon remains to be seen!

Theon reaches the castle where is sister resides. However who the boy is helping him is still unclear to us all. It was speculated that he was to be the bastard son of Ramsay Snow, and if he is then Theon is in big trouble!!

Cersei does not trust the Tyrell's and wants them out of the castle. She doesn't like being cast aside, what will she do to gain back some power? And will she ever be able to control Joffrey again?!

Arya is brought to the leader of the brotherhood without banners! We finally get to meet Beric Dondarrion after he was sent out to hunt down the Mountain in the first season (the character has been recast for this season!) 

To finish up, here's my favourite version of the Intro to Game of Thrones

Season 3: Episode 3: Walk of Punishment

We are on episode 3 of Season 3 already. This season is going by too fast! What did you all think of episode 2? If you've read the books, what do you think of the changes they've made to adapt the story for the series?

Here's what we can expect in episode 3 ''Walk of Punishment"

The synopsis for the episode tell's us that ''Tyrion gains new responsibilities; Jon is taken to the Fist of the First Men; Daenerys meets with the slavers and Jaime stirkes a deal with his captors."

From both the video clip and the synopsis we can expect too see more of Daenerys and Jon than we did in episode 2 (Danny having been completely absent in episode 2). We see that Danny makes a bid to buy her army, Jaime and Brienne have been captured, but what will there captures do with them? 

To be honest they really haven't given much away for this episode, but the biggest mystery so far this season is Theon Greyjoy. Where is he? Who are the people that have captured and tortured him and who is the ''boy'' that tell's him he is going to help him? 

We also get a closer look at the Brotherhood without Banners, who it seems many people have forgotten about. Quick recap, they are a band of outlaws formed by Beric Dondarrion after he was sent out by Eddard Stark to hunt down the Mountain. What will they do with the Hound? And what does it mean for Arya now that they know she is a Stark?

We won't be seeing any of the storylines from Sansa, Joffrey, Margaery, or Bran and Rickon in this episode.

Has everyone noticed the changes in the intro to season 3?

Season 3: Episode 2: Dark Wings, Dark Words

Firstly when I saw the views of this blog today I was shocked! Thanks so much too all who read these posts. I never expected so many people to read these.

Here's a sneak peak of what we can expect in Episode 2 of Season 3!

What to expect in Dark Wings, Dark Words:

As a result of having so many new faces to introduce, it seems that episode 2 will be much like episode 1, in that we see a little bit of some of the new characters and a little bit of some of the old but not a whole lot of anyone. Once everyone has been introduced and the old characters caught up with hopefully we'll see a bit more of everyone.

The beginning of the preview shows Sansa being interrogated by Margaery's grandmother. She has put Sansa on the spot and want's to know what Joffrey is truely like. The question remains though can Sansa trust the Tyrell's and tell them the truth?!

Another new character we will be introduced too is Orell. He is a wildling skin-changer, which means he is capable of entering other creatures and controlling them. This is bad news for Jon Snow though. as the bird Orell becomes brings nothing but bad news for him.

For the first time this season we will see Bran and Arya Stark! Bran was last seen leaving the ruins of Winterfell with Hodor, Osha and Rickon. But who is the large figure we see him looking up at in the preview? When we see Arya in the clip she has come face to face with Thoros of Myr a member of the Brotherhood without banners. These guys were created when Beric Dondarrion was sent out to find and bring back the Mountain. The brotherhood were made outlaws when Joffrey took over and Eddard was beheaded.

Finally we see more of Robb Stark. It is clear that dissension is growing in his ranks and people are becoming unhappy with his choices. We also see Brienne and Jaimie having a little spar.

There is still a lot going on in Westeros and things are only going to get more interesting. Remember Game of Thrones airs on Sunday nights on HBO and Monday nights on Sky Atlantic.
