SAN DIEGO, April 7, 2013 – Fans have more catching up to do as Season 3 of HBO’s “Game of Thrones” continues with more walking and more talking this week. We check up on old characters and meet new ones in Episode 2, “Dark Wings, Dark Words.”
Join us on Communities as our entertainment staff hosts a Live Chat with you as we watch the second episode. Who are your favorite characters? Which new characters are you looking forward to meeting? What do you hope to see in Season 3?
We will meet the most highly anticipated new character in Season 3 on Sunday, April 7. British acting icon Dame Diana Rigg plays the grandmother of Margaery Tyrell ’s grandmother, Lady Olenna, also called the Queen of Thorns.
It becomes clear who the ambitious, politically savvy, determined Margaery takes after as we watch her grandmother gathering intelligence and putting Sansa Stark under interrogation.
A character is introduced who will play an important role in Jon Snow’s life. Actor Mackenzie Crook plays Orell. He is a wildling “warg.” A warg has the ability to enter the mind of a creature, see through its eyes and control its actions. It doesn’t control the creature but co-exists with it.
We catch up this episode with the two youngest Stark children, Arya and Bran. Arya meets Thoros of Myr. Keep an eye on this fascinating character. Bran and his companions face a serious challenge in this episode.
Many fans will be glad to see fan favorites Brienne of Tarth and Jamie Lannister, who engage in some verbal swordplay as they make their way to King’s Landing together. There will be a lot more scenes for these two before Season 3 is over.
We look forward to seeing you on Sunday and Game of Thrones fans from around the world as we enjoy all of our favorite characters and the twists, turns, intrigue, plotting, scary creatures and epic scenery.
Game of Thrones returns with Episode 2 of Season 3, “Dark Wings, Dark Words” on Sunday, April 7, at 9 p.m. Eastern Time on HBO East and HBO Latino East (with Spanish subtitles); followed by airings on HBO West and Latino West at 9 p.m. Pacific Time.
