Season 3: Episode 9, The Rains of Castamere

This is it, the episode that makes up for this whole season being a little dull and less exciting than the others. Believe me if you haven't read the books or someone hasn't spoiled it for you yet, you are going to be shocked!! There will be wedding bells, and battles, betrayal's and deaths! Believe me this is not an episode to be missing!

In episode 9, The Rains of Castamere, Robb presents himself to Walder Frey for the first time after breaking his marriage promise. Edmure meets his bride-to-be. Daario and Jorah devise a plan on how to take Yunkai and House Frey join with House Tully at the ''Red Wedding''.
Between episode 9 and some part of Season 4 a lot of pretty big cast members are going to be killed off!

The second last episode never ceases to disappoint and sets us up for an epic season finale! In season 1 we saw the murder/beheading of Eddard Stark, in Season 2 we had the Battle of the Blackwater where Stannis tried to take Kings Landing and failed miserably.

This season will be no different, I really can't wait! DO NOT MISS IT!!

A little history on why this episode is named after the song ''The Rains of Castamere''. The Rains of Castamere is the unofficial war song that refers to Lord Tywin Lannister's brutal victory over House Reyne of Castamere when they rebelled against him. Usually it is sung as a reminder for those who dare cross Tywin Lannister. . . . or any Lannister for that matter. So I think it's safe to say we can expect impending battle for this episode.

I've read other previews for this episode and they all ruin the the episode for people who don't know what's coming. I'd prefer not to do that, I didn't expect what was coming when I read the books and I hope others don't either!

Let me know below what you thought of the episode, after you've seen it. . . .I hope I didn't hype it up too much! :P

Season 3: Episode 8, Second Sons

Back again after being MIA for a few weeks. The past few weeks have been a bit hectic with work and things, so back in time for episode 8 of Season 3 of Game of Thrones. Only 3 episodes left in this season, it's gone by so fast.

A quick recap on where I left off;

Sansa Stark is to marry Tyrion Lannister. Arya Stark was with Beric Dondarion and the Brotherhood without Banners in the Riverlands however in the last episode we saw the Hound capturing her. Robb and his bannermen along with his mother and her uncle and brother are travelling through the riverlands to The Twins for the wedding of Edmure and one of Frey's daughters. Danny is reaking havoc across the narrow sea. Freeing slaves and sacking cities. Jon Snow and the Wildlings climbed the wall and are making there way to castle black.

After that very quick recap here's what to expect in episode 8, Second Sons;
Apart from killing a whore here and there (poor aul Ros) Joffrey's been pretty quiet this season! He hasn't started any wars and his grandfather seems to have a hold over him for the most part, that is until this episode, Joffrey doesn't seem to impressed with something Tywin has said, looks like the old psychotic Joffrey we all love to hate is about to return.

Across the narrow sea Danaery's is hell bent on sacking Yunkai after her little episode in Astaphor. It's unclear if this guy is going to be friend or foe yet but if he is who I think he is, he'll have something else she's been looking for since Khal Drogo, besides the army ;). Danny want's to free all those who are being treated unjustly, it seems the fuel for this is from being her brother's object when she was younger.

Arya isn't going quietly either, but just what does The Hound plan on doing with her?

Getting closer to episode 9. . . . believe me you will not want to miss that episode!!
