ADULTS ONLY MATURE THEMEGame of Thrones is an American medieval fantasy television series created for HBO by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss. The series is based on author George R. R. Martin’s best-selling A Song of Ice and Fire series of seven planned fantasy novels, the first of which is called A Game of Thrones. The series debuted in the U.S. on April 17, 2011. Game of Thrones has been well received, and garnered a loyal fan-base. The series was picked up for a fourth season on April 2, 2013, three days after its third season premiere on March 31, 2013.
The last Episode ended in the Red Wedding the brutal massacre of the Stark family and remaining army. Just as the first season showed the death of Eddard (Ned) Stark while his daughters watched his beheading we are thrust into the horror of War and the brutality of the world of George R. R. Martin’s world of The Game Of Thrones. The readers of the novels knew it was coming and it was still hard to watch. Are better days ahead for the Stark family? Perhaps the 2 young boys Bran and Rickon Stark are still alive and so are their sisters Sansa and Arya Stark. Plus we still have Jon Snow their half brother, member of the Knights Watch, born in an illicit affair to Ned Stark at war time. Also Ned’s brother is not accounted for Benjen Stark called the first Ranger and part of the Knights Watch which guards the Great wall of the North to keep the nastys that lurk in the frozen north beyond the wall.
We have the final episode ahead this Sunday which will leave us wondering who will finally capture the Iron Throne and win the Game Of Thrones for leadership of all the kingdoms. It is hard to keep the players and participants straight because the world of the Game Of Thrones is diverse and George R. R. Martin has created a reality the is hard to follow. To understand it better IGN has created a website Game of Thrones Wiki Guide that is very helpful. Also I have included some diagrams of families and houses to help you make sense of the story. Below is the Final episode trailer to wet you whistle for more of the Game of Throne. Stay tuned comic and TV faithful for more. 🙂 Walt
