Game Of Thrones: Season 3 #GoTNOWTV #MarchMarathon

film reviews | movies | features | BRWC Game Of Thrones: Season 2 #GoTNOWTV #MarchMarathon

Red is the colour of love and death and this season 3 of Game of Thrones is awash with red.

Love, Duty and Betrayal are the order of play in season 3 of Game of Thrones. It’s grown just a little lighter but not necessarily brighter in Westeros and the plotting that happened in the darkness of season 2 is now coming to light. What happens when you betray someone close to you as Theon did to Robb Stark in season 2. Karma comes for Theon in a dramatic way in season 3. Maybe he should send a raven to Varys to find out how to manage.

Tywin Lannister played with gleeful malicious magnificence by Charles Dance rules over the Lannister house. The majority of the action of season 3 focuses on the Lannister’s in King’s Landing and now that Stanis Baratheon was defeated at the Battle of Blackwater they must hold onto that power. “Do you think the person who wears the crown holds the real power” he asks Tyrion. It’s certainly not if Tywin is standing behind the crowned one and his withering put down of King Joffrey: “The King is tired” is one of my favourite scenes especially after nobody bothers with Joffrey’s rants of having Tywin locked up.

Young doomed love – Jon Snow and Ygritte couldn’t stay in that cave forever no matter how good his kisses were. Jon must now choose love or duty – in scenes full of pathos and Ygritte doing what any woman in love would do shooting him down in arrows – does he survive or succumb to the hail of arrows – tune in to find out. Betrayal comes to King’s Landing when Shae who feels Tyrion no longer wants her now he is married to Sansa Stark. However, she may be mistaken perhaps Tyrion is trying to protect her from the evil around her but will she understand that.

Then there is love and what better place to celebrate love than at a wedding saying goodbye to an old life and hello to a new one except in true Game of Thrones style. Betrayal comes in many guises and the colour red bleeds profusely all over the wedding but just who survives at the wedding of Lord Walder Frey at which Robb Stark and his mother Catelyn are guests.

Lest we forget that there is still a battle for the Iron Throne and Daenerys wants it but she’ll need an army. As she ponders about buying the army of the Unsullied. It her love for her dragons that reigns supreme in her mind but do they still love her is real the question.

The writers based some of season 3 on A Storm of Swords by George R.R. Martin and they don’t disappoint in taking the base material and ensuring that the series is as engrossing, witty and heart rendering as per the previous two seasons. As previously discussed the writers have no problem killing major characters even if they are still alive in the books after all the books form the basis of the television show and are viewed as an inspiration source – this is fantasy after all.

Ros is as picky about what she watches as what she eats. She watches movies alone and dines solo too (a new trend perhaps?!). As a self confessed scaredy cat, Ros doesn’t watch horror films, even Goosebumps made her jump in parts!
