'Game of Thrones' Season 3: New Spoilers from Premiere "Valar Doheris!"Kevin Fitzpatrick |
We're less than three weeks from the 'Game of Thrones' season 3 premiere "Valar Doheris," and even the most hardcore of George R.R. Martin fans and "A Song of Ice and Fire" readers are dying for a taste of what HBO has wrought for a third time around. In advance of the premiere, new press descriptions of upcoming episodes have been released, so what can we learn from the March 31 premiere of 'Game of Thrones' season 3? Head inside for the latest intel!
Cant wait until the March 31 premiere of 'Game of Thrones' season 3? Neither can we, so don't feel too bad! We were already drooling over the upcoming episodes adapting George R.R. Martin's book "A Storm of Swords," when HBO blessed us with the press release for season 3 premiere "Valar Doheris!" See for yourself:
As Blackwater Bay cools, the victors consolidate their power and rebuild King’s Landing. But new challengers for the Iron Throne rise from the most unexpected places. Characters old and new must navigate the demands of family, honor, ambition, love and – above all – survival, as the Westeros civil war rages into autumn.
As season three begins, the Lannisters hold absolute dominion over King’s Landing after repelling Stannis Baratheon’s forces. Yet Robb Stark, King in the North, still controls much of the South as well, and has yet to lose a battle. In the Far North, Mance Rayder has united the wildlings into the largest army Westeros has ever seen. Only the Night’s Watch stands between him and the Seven Kingdoms, but nobody knows what happened to its Lord Commander and the force he led beyond the Wall.
Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three growing dragons – ventures into Slaver’s Bay in search of ships to take her home and allies to conquer it.
Even more than that, March 31 premiere "Valar Doheris" will see much development, as "Jon 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."

Are you most excited to meet the "King Beyond the Wall" Mance Rayder, or to see Daenerys' forces (and dragons) grow in strength?
