Watching The Thrones is a video series dedicated to in depth analysis and discussion around the second season of the HBO series Game of Thrones, in the context of the A Song of Ice and Fire book series written by George R.R. Martin. Westeros doesn’t play by rules, and its inhabitants are tortured beings pregnant with power. We don’t know when the creators of the HBO show will deviate from the source material; we don’t even know when George R. R. Martin will finish the books. All we can do is observe what happens on this damned continent and hope that the characters don’t live long enough for us to fall in love.
Serious spoils are contained in the material.
In the third episode of Watching the ‘Thrones,’ Blake J. Graham and Eric Harsh analyze the second episode of season two: The Night Lands. The plot picks up with more logistical layout, but takes time to focus on some characters. Tyrion Lannister begins to flex his muscles as hand to the king proving he doesn’t play by the rules like Ned Stark did. We touch on the Theon Greyjoy‘s trip back home, Stannis Baratheon‘s strange relationship with Melisandre and Jon Snow‘s encounters beyond the Wall.
