When we were last in Westeros, the realm had already begun spiralling into turmoil after cruel King Joffrey ordered the execution of Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell and the Warden of the North. Eddard's eldest son, Robb Stark marched south with his bannermen and won three crucial victories against the Lannisters of Casterly Rock. After capturing Jaime Lannister, the northmen declared Robb the King in the North.

In King's Landing, Arya witnessed her father's execution and was whisked away by Yoren, a man of the Night's Watch. Sansa remained a prisoner in the Red Keep, betrothed to her father's killer.

Everyone's favorite dwarf, Tyrion Lannister was named Hand of the King by his father, Tywin and set out for King's Landing with orders to control both his sister and nephew.

This young teenage singer was shocked when Keith Urban invited her on stage at his concert. A few moments later, he made her wildest dreams come true:

Beyond the wall, Jon Snow set out with an army of rangers to investigate missing men of the Night's Watch and rumors of wildling's hosting on the Fist of the First Men.

And across the narrow sea, Daenerys Targaryen rises from Khal Drogo's funeral pyre with three live dragons and a wounded Khalasar that she must lead to salvation across the Red Wastes.

That's where we left off, and here's a glimpse of where we're going (spoiler alert!):

  • Sansa Stark will come face-to-face with the cruelty of King Joffrey and begin an interesting relationship with Joffrey's Hound, Sandor Clegane.
  • Arya Stark will journey north, towards the wall, hoping to be reuinited with her half-brother Jon Snow. Along the way she will get sidetracked at the haunted Harrenhall. There she will collude with a Braavosi assassin named Jaqen H'ghar.
  • Tyrion Lannister will struggle with his new responsibilities as Hand of King Joffrey. The season's climactic scene will see him donning a suit of (tiny) armor to defend King's Landing against an invading host from Dragonstone.
  • Daenerys will cross the Red Wastes with her wounded Khalasar. She will meet all manner of exotic easterners with one thing on their minds: dragons.
  • Jon Snow will march deep into the frozen north to confront foes both human and...Other...
