Game of Thrones Season 3 Preview Thread (No Book Spoilers Please)



At the request of some of the Crackpot folks and Screamer, I'm starting up the Season 3 preview thread. Click here for the Season 2 preview thread.

Also, as before, I ask that we try to stay away from book spoilers so that non-ASOIAF readers can participate in this thread. Please and thank you.

Game of Thrones Season 3 Premiere is on March 31st at 9:00 pm EST on HBO.

Official Season 3 Trailer (from Jimmy Kimmel Live) (1:00)

Premiere Synopsis (Episode Name TBA):

quote:

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, and Cersei hosts a dinner for the royal family. Arya runs into the Brotherhood Without Banners. Dany sails into Slaver’s Bay

Plot for Season 3 from Game of Thrones Season 3 Wiki (Where we left off in Season 2):


quote:

Season 3 spans several months on a world where the seasons can last for years at a time. Autumn has fallen across the world, with winter not far behind. The people should be preparing for years of snow and ice, but the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros instead remain gripped by civil war. Would-be king Renly Baratheon has been assassinated, altering the alliances in the war. The cruel boy-king Joffrey Baratheon has won a great victory by securing an alliance with House Tyrell, with his supporters defeating his uncle Stannis in an epic battle. Joffrey now commands the largest armies in the realm and his triumph appears inevitable.

King Robb Stark remains in the field, however his homeland, the North, is partially under ironborn occupation. Robb needs to decide on a course of action to win an overall victory. He must also win back the allegiance of House Frey, whom he has offended by breaking his marriage pact to them. King Robb has won every battle he has fought, but as with old King Robert, the Starks will have to see if good soldiers make good kings.

Stannis Baratheon may be defeated and most of his army destroyed or scattered, but he is not out of the fight yet. Having retreated to his headquarters on Dragonstone island with his handful of surviving soldiers, Stannis' status as the last legitimate heir to his older brother Robert still casts a shadow over Joffrey's claim to the throne. With the priestess Melisandre at his side, Stannis can still influence the course of the war by striking where least expected.

The lives of many others still hang in the balance. Bran Stark and his protectors must cross the frozen wastelands of the North to reach the Wall, whilst Arya must brave the war-torn Riverlands in search of her mother and brother. Brienne also has the thankless task of taking the captive Jaime Lannister home across hundreds of miles of battlefields and carnage. Theon Greyjoy must face the consequences of his actions at Winterfell. And in King's Landing both Tyrion Lannister and Sansa Stark must brave the currents of a much more dangerous court in order to survive.

On the eastern continent, Daenerys Targaryen has fled the political viper-pit of Qarth. Her dragons are growing and her fame is spreading, but to take the Iron Throne she will need supporters and an army. Both may be found in the corrupt cities of Slaver's Bay... for a price.

Beyond the Wall, the White Walkers are on the move, threatening both the Seven Kingdoms and the lands of the Free Folk. While the Night's Watch faces the threat of the White Walkers in the field, Jon Snow must infiltrate the wildling army of Mance Rayder and discover the King-Beyond-the-Wall's plans.

Why do you need 3?


To split it up where it's easier to follow and edit as new info is put out by HBO and etc. If you look at the Season 2 thread, I'm just going by what I did before.

Thanks Belle.I'm already burrowing in to the details. The references in the wiki are very interesting but contain spoilers so those delving into them need to beware. I don't know about the others but I can only absorb so much at one time.I foresee many visits to this thread and its contents. Is this thread "sticky worthy" to keep it at the top?

Yeah, he's listed as such in his imdb credits, and is listed in the first episode of the season as such.
