Preview the exciting new developments and shocking twists of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 inside!
Did ‘Game of Thrones’ leave you hungry for more after this past Sunday’s game-changer? Can you wait to find out what happens in the second half of the season? You don’t have to! Following next Sunday’s “Kissed By Fire,” HBO has revealed the full synopsis for its May episodes, taking us all the way to the final two episodes of the season, consistently regarded as the most intense of the season. Beware of spoilers!
“The Climb” – SUNDAY, MAY 5
Tywin (Charles Dance) plans strategic unions for the Lannisters. Melisandre (Carice van Houten) visits the Riverlands. Robb (Richard Madden) weighs a compromise to repair his alliance with House Frey. Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton) decides what to do with Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau). Jon (Kit Harington), Ygritte (Rose Leslie) and the Wildlings face a daunting climb.
“The Bear and the Maiden Fair” – SUNDAY, MAY 12
Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) exchanges gifts with a slave lord outside Yunkai. As Sansa (Sophie Turner) frets about her prospects, Shae (Sibel Kekilli) chafes at Tyrion’s (Peter Dinklage) new situation. Tywin counsels the king, and Melisandre reveals a secret to Gendry (Joe Dempsie). Brienne (Gwendoline Christie) faces a formidable foe in Harrenhal.
“Second Sons” – SUNDAY, MAY 19
King’s Landing hosts a wedding, and Tyrion and Sansa spend the night together. Daenerys meets the Titan’s Bastard. Davos (Liam Cunningham) demands proof from Melisandre. Sam (John Bradley) and Gilly (Hannah Murray) meet an older gentleman.
Weddings rarely go well in the ‘Game of Thrones’ universe, though we’re most excited to see the George R.R. Martin-scripted “The Bear and the Maiden Fair.” It should also prove interesting to unite Gendry and Melisandre, two characters not known to meet within the books, but rather out of consolidation of several other characters. Not to mention, Tyrion and Sansa? What what what?
Well, what say you? Are you excited to see what the second half of ‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 brings? Check out a preview of Sunday’s “Kissed By Fire” below, and give us your predictions in the comments!
