‘Game of Thrones’ Episode Descriptions Keep War Raging
Now that ‘Game of Thrones‘ season 2 is already well underway, we’re less privy to the awesome publicity campaigns that brought us things like twenty-two minute recaps, a new trailer every other day, or the increasingly bad-ass item posters. So what’s a hapless fan to do in between episodes? Seek out spoilers for the next, of course!
HBO has unvale-ed (see what I did there?) the full episode descriptions for each of the May episodes of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 2, which take us right through episodes 6 to 9, culminating in the much discussed “Blackwater.” Of course, still absent is any description of episode 10 the show’s second season finale, which to date doesn’t have a publicly released title.
From the official press release:

Arya (Maisie Williams) comes face to face with a surprise visitor; Dany (Emilia Clarke) vows to take what is hers; Robb (Richard Madden) and Catelyn (Michelle Fairley) receive crucial news; Qhorin (Simon Armstrong) gives Jon (Kit Harington) a chance to prove himself.

Those are certainly more descriptive than anything we’ve found before, but it looks like the epic “Blackwater” has such grave ramifications, that HBO won’t even talk about the season finale’s title! Which episode are you most looking forward to?
