GAME OF THRONES
Game of Thrones Season 1
Enter the mythical beast woman
North of the Wall, a watch of the sheltered Night’s Watch arrange is trapped by undead White Walkers. One of the men escapes south where, for his inconveniences, he is executed by the Lord of Winterfell Eddard Stark (Sean Bean).
Respectable Ned expels the babblings about vivified bodies and demands it is grave obligation to execute the miscreant face to face. In any case, traitorous troopers are soon the slightest of his stresses. Several miles toward the south in King’s Landing, “Hand of the King” Jon Arryn bites the dust in baffling conditions. This is clearly awful news for Jon Arryn however opens another vocation open door for Ned, as his old companion, King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy), goes to Winterfell and offers to make the Warden of the North the new Hand of the King.
There are a couple of staying focuses. For a certain something, Ned has no enthusiasm for getting to be plainly trapped in elegant interest at the capital. Also, Robert has carried with him his terrible more distant family. These incorporate coldblooded Queen Cersei of the effective House Lannister, her dashing however self-in regards to twin Ser Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and their whore hobnobbing kin Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) .
Most obnoxious of all is Robert’s appalling child and beneficiary Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) – actually a ruined sovereign whose brattish disposition couldn’t be more not quite the same as that of the talkative, debase Robert (it’s practically as though they are not related… ).
In any case, if things are terrible for Ned – who opposes Robert’s offer however is made to comprehend he truly doesn’t have a decision – they are more terrible for his child Bran (Isaac Hempstead Wright). Climbing a pinnacle, the lovable poppet stumbles over Cersei canoodling with Jaime – yes, her twin!. “The things I improve the situation adore,” moans Jaime, pushing Bran out the window to his assumed passing.
By one means or another the kid survives – though disabled forever and in a brief trance like state. While mother Catelyn sits by his bed, Ned, Robert and their entourages leave for King’s Landing. With Ned are his girls Sansa (unpredictable, form cognizant, bafflingly besotted with Joffrey) and feisty little Arya (Maisie Williams). Likewise saying goodbye to the family home is Jon Snow, Ned’s “jerk” child, transparently despised by Catelyn. He is to make a trip north to the Wall and join the semi-religious Night’s Watch, whose serious is to protect the antiquated bulwark. Jon remains unaware of his mom and Ned promises to finally share reality when next they meet (yes, one of them bites the dust).
Over the Narrow Sea and a long way from the cultured conspiring of Westeros, Princess Daenerys Targaryen is going to be offered to savage warlord Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa). A union between the wide-looked at, mostly dressed Daenerys and the brutish Drogo has been orchestrated by the Princess’ upsetting (even by Prince Joffrey guidelines) sibling Viserys (Harry Lloyd).
As the sole surviving offspring of the Mad King who once managed Westeros – and was fiercely removed by the Baratheons and Starks in “Robert’s Rebellion” – Viserys trusts the Iron Throne his to recover. Unadroitly he’s weak, vain and does not have an armed force. Very little to be done about the initial two – be that as it may, hitching Daenerys to Drogo will put available to him the Khal’s Dothraki swarms and, all going to plan, release the Targaryen “winged serpent”.
Back in Westeros, new Hand of the King Ned is shocked when his significant other Catelyn touches base at King’s Landing. She has gotten a letter from her sister ( likewise Jon Arryn’s dowager) – asserting the Lannisters murdered Ned’s antecedent (Catelyn trusts they later dispatched the professional killer who unsuccessfully endeavor to complete off stricken Bran).
Tsk-tsk, the Starks are going to lose a significant partner. Robert, a serial philander in a sham marriage with Cersei, passes on amid a pig chase, with his better half having obviously sedated his wine.
This is deplorable planning as Ned has found that Joffrey isn’t Robert’s organic child. Gone up against, Cersei concedes Jaime is the father of every one of her youngsters. In any case, innocent Ned has thought little of his foes. With Joffrey to be King, Eddard is captured for bad form and executed – in perspective of girls Sansa (in a be-cautious what-you-wish-for bend she is currently pledged to accursed Joffrey) and Arya, watching in mask before escaping for her life.
In Essos, Daenerys shocks herself by taking to the life of a Khal’s significant other. Likewise astounded is Viserys. Never again in charge his sister he is executed by the Dothraki (huge fanatics of emotional incongruity, the horsemen pour a “crown” of liquid gold over on his head).
However the part of a murderous warlord can test and Khal maintains lethal injuries in fight. Into his burial service campfire steps Daenerys with the three monster eggs she got as a wedding blessing. She rises unharmed – this being Game of Thrones her garments clearly aren’t so fortunate – while the eggs have brought forth into child winged serpents.
Game of Thrones Season 2
The demon ventures up
With Joffrey ruler and headless Ned particularly dead, Westeros is grasped by defiance. In the North Ned’s eldest child Robb (Richard Madden) has pronounced war, taking prisoner Jaime Lannister in an early engagement. Similarly purpose on unseating Joffrey is Robert Baratheon’s sibling Stannis (Stephen Dillane). He is more devoted and prudent than Robert (great), yet additionally persuaded he is set apart for significance by the “Ruler of Light” – an agnostic divinity requesting human give up (not great).
Exactly how not great this rapidly winds up noticeably self-evident. His otherworldly advocate Melisandre (Carice van Houten) sends a “smoke creature” to murder Renly Baratheon (Gethin Anthony), Stannis’ cherished sibling and adversary for the honored position. In the interim, anybody brave talk against the Lord of Light is probably going to wind up tied to a fire and subjected to off the cuff grilling.
Robb moreover exhibits faulty judgment as he sends adolescence pal Theon (Alfie Allen) – a sovereign of the Iron Isles brought up in Winterfell – back to his oceanic home to pick up the help of father Balon. As opposed to arousing to the Stark pennant, Balon remorseful fits Theon , who astutely seizes Winterfell for the Greyjoys. Grain is compelled to escape north with his moronic minder Hodor (Theon hangs two agriculturist young men in the place of Bran and sibling Rickon).
Likewise on the run is Arya Stark who brings up at the fortification of Harrenhal where Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance), patriarch of the most Evil Family in Westeros, unwittingly delegates the hidden princess his glass carrier. She later escapes, with the help of the secretive Jaqen H’ghar (Thomas Wlaschiha) of the Faceless Men of Essos.
Over on the eastern mainland, it’s demonstrating a long and careless street of Daenerys, her child mythical beasts and contracting Dothraki armed force. In the long run they advance toward the abandon City of Qarth where they are become friends with by understandable dealer Xaro Daxos. Be that as it may, they are eventually deceived by Daxos, in cahoots with the warlock Pyat Pree. With her monsters Cersei massacres the magician and seals Daxos (alongside her traitorous hireling Doreah) in a tomb. Try not to filth about with the Mother of Dragons.
Somewhere else, what will end up noticeably known as the War of the Five Kings rolls on. As Robb plots his best course of action against the Lannisters, Catelyn sets Jamie free. He is to be escorted to King’s Landing by Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) – Renly’s faithful previous protector – in the expectation of securing the arrival of Sansa and Arya.
On an exploring mission north of the Wall Jon is captured by the Wildling Ygritte (Rose Leslie) – a meet-adorable that sets in prepare a shocking relationship. No such fervor anticipates alternate Rangers of the Watch, as they are assaulted by the White Walkers and their worker wights.
In King’s Landing, Stannis’ intrusion armada has hoved into see. With futile Joffrey in control, everybody expects the most exceedingly awful (particularly Cersei, who paints for Sansa a somber photo of the treatment they can anticipate). Hand of the King Tyrion has a finesse design, in any case. As Joffrey sobs like the weakling he may be, his uncle repulses Stannis’ powers with touchy fierce blaze, loads of which the Mad King disguised underneath the city. It’s sufficient to keep the adversaries under control until Tywin Lannister dashes to the save.
Game of Thrones Season 3
“The Lannisters send their respects”
Having spared King’s Landing from Stannis, Tyrion is expeditiously downgraded by his disliking father (who has never pardoned his child for guaranteeing this mother in labor and for having a working good compass). Or maybe more famous in the capital is the aspiring Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer). Renly’s dowager has dislodged Sansa and is currently pledged to Joffrey. Sansa, Tywin has declared, will be offered to the hesitant Tyrion (with unprecedented goodness he decays to perfect the pre-marriage ceremony).
Far toward the north, Jon Snow at last meets the Wildling’s semi-mythic King past the Wall Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds) and concurs they have a typical adversary in the Walkers.
Things are going less well for Theon Greyjoy, whose messed up triumph of Winterfell has seen him fallen into the grip of a baffling torturer. Be that as it may, the genuine washouts this season are Robb and Catelyn Stark (Michelle Farley). Subsequent to beginning to look all starry eyed at healer Talisa (Oona Chaplin), Robb retreats from an orchestrated marriage to Roslin, girl of his partner Lord Walder Frey. She will rather be hitched to Edmure Tully – and the Starks are welcomed!
Consequently is the table set for the famous Red Wedding. The Freys and Boltons, striking a mystery bargain on Tywin Lannister, turn on the Starks, chopping down Catelyn, Robb and Robb’s pregnant planned. “The Lannisters send their respects,” growls Roose Bolton as he wounds Talisa in the womb.
Touching base in time for the butchery is Arya Stark, reluctantly taken under the wing of the “Dog” Sandor Clegane (Rory McCann), in the past Joffrey’s own butcher. With whatever remains of the family dead or in danger, in the interim Bran proceeds with north. Frequented by dreams he sets out to go past the Wall and locate the “Three-Eyed Raven”, who holds the key to his prospering capacity to extend his psyche into the body of a critical wolf. He is joined by Hodor and two new allies, Meera and Jojen Reed.
Somewhere else, Daenerys’ wants to vanquish Westeros assemble force. On her wanderings crosswise over Essos, she accumulates a multitude of “Unsullied” warriors and gets advise from two frustrated displaced people from the Seven Kingdoms. Ser Barriston Selmy and Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen). With the urban communities of Slavers Bay tumbling to her one by one, another power is ascending in the East. To what extent before it turns its consideration West?
Game of Thrones Season 4
Joffrey tries to back-peddle
Another season respects a crisp face to King’s Landing. Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), dashing ruler of Dorne, touches base at the capital for the marriage of Joffrey and Margaery (and furthermore to get revenge against the Lannisters, whom he considers in charge of the passing of his sister).
In any case, Joffrey’s wedding doesn’t go very as arranged. He is harmed and topples over before he has had an opportunity to toast his new lady of the hour. Likewise leaving King’s Landing, but by less ridiculous means, is Sansa, carried to flexibility by tricky Lord Petyr “Littlefinger” Baelish (Aidan Turner) and Margaery’s wily grandma Lady Olenna Tyrell (Diana Rigg). We will later find they planned to execute Joffrey, so saving Margaery being hitched to a beast.
At the Eyrie Sansa falls foul of distraught Aunt Lysa who endeavors to push her niece through a Moon Door. She is saved by Littlefinger, with Lord Baelish rather sending Lady Arryn, with whom he has entered an orchestrated marriage, to her gravity-helped end.
Up north Jon Snow cautions the Night’s Watch that Mance Rayder expects to assault. An epic fight results and Jon and Ygritte’s relationship hits an unbalanced fix as she tries to chop him down with a bolt. With the Wildlings incidentally repelled, Jon sneaks off to execute Rayder – just for Stannis Baratheon and his powers to ride to the save of the Night’s Watch.
Back at King’s Landing, the honest Tyrion is blamed for killing Joffrey. The case is to be chosen with trial by battle. In any case, his champion Oberyn is chopped around the “Mountain” Gregor Clegane (Sandor’s bulky sibling). Afterward, Jaime discharges his sibling who sneaks back to his chambers to discover his sweetheart Shae has been canoodling with Tyrion’s dad Tywin. Tyrion shoots his father on the restroom and, supported by Master of Whispers Varys, escapes Westeros.
Additionally stopping the Western mainland is Arya. She witnesses a clear battle to the passing amongst Sandor and Brienne (who, having fizzled Catelyn, has pledged to ensure any Stark intersection her way). Showing unique savagery, Arya leaves Sandor to his destiny and crosses the Narrow Sea to think about with Jaqan H’ghar’s Faceless Men.
Game of Thrones Season 5
The Night’s King shows his hand
With Joffrey dead, Margaery marries his younger brother Tommen – to the disgust of Cersei , who has developed an enthusiastic loathing for her daughter-in-law.
Never one to tread softly, Stannis burns the King Beyond the Wall at the stake – punishment for refusing to swear fealty. Meanwhile Jon Snow is elected leader of the Night’s Watch – to the visible disapproval of the senior members of the order. Sansa and Littlefinger leave The Vale – but where are they bound? That would be a surprise, intimates Littlefinger. Actually it is a surprise. He intends marrying Sansa off to horrible Ramsay Bolton ( Iwan Rheon), thus restoring a Stark to Winterfell (albeit by the back door).
In her former family home, Sansa is horrified to find Theon – now the broken and half insane plaything of Ramsay (his mystery torturer). She is brutally abused on her wedding night by the sadistic younger Bolton – with Theon (re-named Reek by Ramsay) forced to watch.
Stannis marches south towards Winterfell. With Winter coming, heavy snow threatens his war against Ramsay. He is urged by Melisandre to sacrifice daughter Shireen to the Lord of Light. Stannis reluctantly complies and the weather indeed turns. Alas his troops, not wishing to fight for a religious maniac, desert and he is easily defeated by the Boltons. In the aftermath of the battle he is discovered by Brienne – who fulfils her vow to avenge Renly’s death by cutting down the man instrumental in his killing.
In Essos, Arya is accepted into the mysterious House of Black and White– though proves slow to subsume her identity into the collective of the Faceless Men. That she has much to learn before becoming “no one” is confirmed as she catches sight of Ser Meryn Trant, the sadistic knight of the Kingsguard and, assuming the likeness of a child prostitute, strikes him down. As punishment for betraying her vows she is struck blind.
At King’s Landing, Cersei neutralises Margaery – who has her wily claws in the naive Tommen – by striking an alliance with the leader of the Sparrows, an evangelical cult growing in popularity. Everything appears to be going as planned as Margaery’s beloved brother Loras is thrown into a deep dark room for sleeping with men and his sister is imprisoned for lying on his behalf.
Alas, Cersei’s clever scheme is revealed to be rather dimwitted as whisperings of her relationship with Jaime reach the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce). She too is dragged away by the religious police and later required to undertake a naked Walk of Shame.
In the desert kingdom of Dorne, Jaime and his sidekick Bronn are on a mission to save his daughter, Princess Myrcella. With Oberon Martyll slain by Cersei’s champion, they fear Myrcella is in imminent danger from the Martell family. She is safely retrieved – but poisoned as they set off for home.
Up north, the terrifying extent of the threat posed by the Walkers is revealed as the Night’s King attacks Jon Snow and his men at a Wildling encampment. Alas, his warnings are not heeded back at the Wall where senior members of the Watch kill Snow as revenge for his traitorous alliance with the Free Folk.
In Essos Daenerys’s hold on the city of Meereen slips when the Sons of the Harpy stage an ambush at a grand gladiatorial bout. She is rescued by her dragon Drogon and swept away to destination unknown. Her new adviser Tyrion – smuggled across the narrow sea to Essos by Varys – will rule in her stead as Ser Jorah and her lover Daario set off on her trail ( Ser Jorah is utterly smitten with Daenerys, of course).
Game of Thrones Season 6
The bastards battle
Jon Snow is dead! But only until Melisandre, calling on the Lord of Light, brings him back (to the surprise of all, Melisandre included). Thus begins the war of the Bastards, with Jon intent on wresting Winterfell back from Ramsay and Roose Bolton. Actually make that just Ramsay – who eliminates his dad, his stepmother, and newborn half-brother (a true blood heir who jeopardises Ramsay’s position).
As a final conflict between the two approaches, Sansa and Theon continue to flee Ramsay’s forces. Sansa travels to the Wall where she is reunited with her brother (“half brother,” Lord Baelish might say, with a significant pause between “half” and “brother”). Theon, meanwhile, journeys to the Iron Islands, just in time for his hateful father to be deposed by Theon’s even more unpleasant uncle Euron.
In King’s Landing ,a post-Shame Walk Cersei isn’t quite off the hook. She’s been humiliated – but must nonetheless stand trial for her crimes. The fundamentalist High Sparrow is not for turning and guileless King Tommen has agreed a formal alliance between church and state.
Bearing further bad news is Jamie, who reveals that Myrcella is dead. Now all but one of Cersei’s children is gone, bringing closer a witch’s prediction that her offspring would wear funeral shrouds (good luck surviving the prophecy Tommen).
Daenerys is having a testing time, too, as prisoner of the Dothraki. As the surviving wife of a slain Khal it is her fate to live in cloistered servitude with the other widows. This doesn’t chime with her plans to rule the entire known world. So she scorches her opponents alive and, walking unharmed through the flames, and becomes leader of the Dothraki (her pledge to burn first, ask question later finding favour with the barbarian masses).
She returns with Drogon to Meereen, where wise and wily Tyrion has brought an uneasy peace. Meanwhile Theon and Yara Greyjoy (Gemma Whelan) have stolen the Iron Islands, battlefleet from beneath the exceedingly wicked nose of usurper Euron Greyjoy. Fleeing to Essos. There, they strike an alliance with Daenerys. Boats, dragons, Dothraki – look out Westeros, the Targaryens are coming!
In the North, the Battle of the Bastards is joined as Ramsay clashes with Jon (but not before Ramsay shoots dead the youngest Stark sibling, Rickon, strictly for the chuckles).
There follows lots of top level hacking, slashing and rucking in the muck. Just as the tide appears to have turned in favour of Ramsay, however, in rushes Petyr Baelish and the Knights of the Vale who carry the day. Hurrah! Or, as Ramsay might put it, “aargh!” as he is fed to his own dogs by a very vengeful Sansa (it’s sadistic and disgusting but still… yay for Sansa).
In Essos, Arya regains her sight and recommences her training at the House of Black and White. However, the going remains bumpy as she clashes with her nemesis the Waif after refusing to assassinate a kindly actress. Upon overcoming her implacable foe, Arya is shown the door by Jaqen – who intimates her training may be complete and that she is indeed “no one”. We next see her, in shape-shifting form, cutting the throat of Red Wedding planner Walder Frey.
In a mystical cave, Bran studies with the “Three-Eyed Raven” – in reality a wizened human psychically connected to a tree (Max Von Sydow), and experiences time-traveling visions. We discover how Hodor became Hodor – a complicated temporal loop – and learn the truth of Jon Snow’s true parentage. He is the child of Ned’s tragic sister Lyanna. The identity of his father is not revealed. However GoT fans are confident it is Daenerys’s slain brother Rhaegar Targaryen, who fell in love with Lyanna and absconded with her.
Unfortunately, Bran’s training is interrupted by the Night King who kills the Three-Eyed Raven and sends the Stark boy and companion Meera fleeing. Hodor – who indeed “holds the door” against the zombies – sacrifices himself so that they may escape.
An unpleasant fate similarly beckons for Cersei. She has sent Jamie off to the Riverlands to put manners on old Stark ally “Blackfish” Tully. Alone except for the resurrected Mountain and her loyal mad scientist Qyburn, what’s an incestuous Queen Mother to do?
The answer, Cersei concludes, is to blow up the Great Sept with some of that leftover wildfire, thus eliminating every rival power player – including Margaery, the High Sparrow and her uncle Kevan (appalled, Tommen jumps from a window). With the Iron Crown upon her head, does the Game of Thrones at last have a winner?
