Game of Thrones (2013): S03E02 – Dark Wings, Dark Words


The third season of the fantasy drama television series Game of Thrones premiered in the United States on HBO on 31 March 2013 and concluded on 09 June 2013.

It was broadcast on Sunday at 9:00 pm in the US, consisting of 10 episodes, each running approximately 50-60 minutes.

The season is based roughly on the first half of A Storm of Swords (the third of the A Song of Ice and Fire novels by George R.R. Martin, of which the series is an adaptation). The series is adapted for television by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.

HBO renewed the series for a third season on 10 April 2012, nine days after the second season’s premiere. Production began in July 2012. The show was filmed primarily in Ireland, Northern Ireland, Croatia, Iceland and Morocco.


Brienne continues escorting Jaime Lannister across the Riverlands to King’s Landing. He engages her in a fight, which is interrupted by Bolton soldiers who capture them.

Robb Stark receives news that Winterfell was sacked, and his brothers Bran and Rickon have disappeared. Robb diverts his attention from the war against the Lannisters to attend the funeral in Riverun for Hoster Tully, Catelyn’s father. This angers Rickard Karstark, who seeks vengeance against the Lannisters for killing his sons.

Arya Stark, Gendry and Hot Pie also make for Riverrun, but are waylaid by the rebel “Brotherhood without Banners”. They stop at an inn, where the captured Hound exposes Arya’s identity.

Margaery and her grandmother Olenna, the “Queen of Thorns”, convince Sansa to describe Joffrey’s deviant character.

Theon Greyjoy is tortured by unknown captors.

Bran, Rickon, Osha, and Hodor encounter siblings Jojen and Meera Reed, children of the Stark bannerman, Howland Reed. Jojen, who shares Bran’s strange dreams, tells Bran that he is able to enter animals’ minds.
