Game of Thrones - Season 3

The creators of 'Game of Thrones' could hardly wish for a bigger success for their series than it is now: the fantasy drama draws millions of viewers from all over the world and the number of 'Game of Thrones' addicts keeps increasing. In addition, the sale of the books on which the series is based, A Song of Ice and Fire, is going fast. In America, the finale of the third season already attracted 5,4 million viewers – the viewers from about a hundred other countries have to be added to this number.

Season 3 ends where season 2 ends: seven parties are vying for the throne. The army of Robb Stark, from the North, travels to King's Landing to ascend the throne and to avenge the death of Ned Stark. Robb Stark's sister Sansa is comfortably imprisoned in King's Landing while the other sister, Arya Stark, goes from one kidnapping to another.

At the Lannisters, Lord Tywin claims the victory on Baratheon. Young Joffrey still reigns over the seven kingdoms and is going to marry Lady Margaery Tyrell instead of Sansa Stark, much to her pleasure. On the other side of The Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen is travelling with her dragons and is firmly expanding her army. Under the influence of priestess Melisandre, Stannis Baratheon tries to regroup after his defeat. He blames Davos for the defeat at King's Landing, who in his turn wants to kill the priestess.

This leaves the other members (or bastards) of the Stark and Lannister families who, either voluntarily or not, roam through the kingdom. Jaime Lannister has to be escorted home (King's Landing) after his imprisonment with the Starks, but he experiences several setbacks. Jon Snow has become one of the Wildlings (or hasn't he?), and is wandering with the Wildlings towards The Wall. Half-paralysed Bran Stark is on his way to the North of The Wall, while his visionary dreams keep coming back.

The already quite complicated story is not getting any easier in season 3. On the other hand, the pace of the stories is quite slow. In addition, not every story line is treated in each episode. Nevertheless, 'Game of Thrones' manages to directly capture your attention in the first episode of this third season. When it appears that the series is becoming less exciting, you're surprised by epic images, a gruesome murder or a hopeful event.

The readers of the books will know what is going to happen this season, and are probably relieved to have seen 'it' happen. Without wanting to spoil anything, I'm sure everyone will agree: the most shocking and startling episode till now is part of season 3.

'Game of Thrones' is compelling, moving, awful and a tad complicated. This is the same for season 3. Winter has still not arrived yet, and the big clash between the contending parties has not occurred as yet. It is obvious that the battle, just as the bloodshed, will continue in the coming season. Other than that, 'Game of Thrones' is just as predictable as life itself: not.
