‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 2
March 28, 2012 by staff
‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 2, If you thought the world of “Game of Thrones” was incredibly vast and complex and festooned with a crazy multitude of characters, brace yourself for Season 2 of HBO’s awesome fantasy epic.
Following the road map forged by mastermind (mad king?) George R.R. Martin, the series now takes on even more layers and more treachery, and follows so many diverse personalities over so much rugged Westeros terrain that you might find yourself wishing that HBO had provided fans with a GPS tracking device.
Of course, some characters always stand out amid the landscape, and in the four new episodes we’ve seen, our hands-down favorite is snark-spewing dwarf Tyrion Lannister, played by the marvelous Peter Dinklage. Tyrion, who skewers his rivals with a superior intellect and wit, always gets off the snappiest lines and brings a lighthearted touch to a series that tends to be oh so dark. Dinklage is proving that his Emmy award in Season 1 was richly deserved.
Then again, it’s probably not a good idea to get too attached to anyone on this blasted show. Not after what happened last year to beloved warrior Lord Eddard (Ned) Stark (Sean Bean), who was beheaded by newly crowned teen King Joffrey Baratheon (Jack Gleeson).
The gruesome death of what seemed to be the saga’s main character blindsided many viewers and defied TV convention. But it also honored Martin’s no-one-is-safe credo. This is an author, after all, who does brutal things to his characters.
And expect more brutality in Season 2 as war breaks out all over Westeros with various factions driven by their own bloody agendas. Among them are rival brothers of the late King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) – Renly (Gethin Anthony) and Stannis (Stephen Dillane), who both stake a claim to Joffrey’s Iron Throne. Though Renly is backed by the larger army, Stannis has the support of a mysterious “red priestess” named Melisandre (Carice van Houten), who apparently has some magical mojo working in her favor.
