So now season 3 ends. Game of Thrones has thrown more information at us then I ever thought possible. Of course, the biggest story happened late in the season. The deaths of Robb and Catelyn were not something I could have ever guessed as a non-book reader. Sure within the episode there were clues. But not enough for me to catch it until the very end. I do not think I have ever seen something as brutal as The Red Wedding on television. HBO definitely did not pull their punches.
Of course many other things happened! Dany has put together quite the army and at this point, if anyone could take the Iron Throne it would be her. Dany has become such a strong character to the point where I really like her now. I am glad she ended the season. It seems as though it is tradition.
Arya Stark, though still relying on the Hound to pull her out of the fire, so to speak, is becoming quite the character. I have really enjoyed her since season 2 but this season she shows off how reckless, yet calculating she can be. Odd choice of words I know but how else would you describe her first kill? If she lives, I can picture her becoming quite the assassin.
Besides The Red Wedding, we had an actual wedding as well! Though not as exciting, for anyone involved. Tyrion and Sansa make the most unusual couple of the show which I find funny because that list includes a brother and sister. As horrible as it sounds, when Joffrey pulled away the stool, it got a chuckle out of me. I felt terrible after because I am a HUGE Tyrion fan, but still very funny. I actually felt that there was not enough Tyrion in this season.
Of course many other things happened such as Theon being broken down completely and all of the events surrounding Jamie. This is one of the richest television shows I have ever watched. There is so much lore behind everything and I really need to start reading the books until I get to where the show finishes. Even with the amazing visuals and the fantastic story, the real winner is the acting. Everyone was cast perfectly and the part of the first book I have read, each actor and actress works well as their book double. I cannot wait for the new season. Game of Thrones season 3 gets an A-. Winter is here.
