SAN DIEGO, May 5, 2013 – HBO’s “Game of Thrones” is based on the series of novels “A Song of Ice and Fire” by George R.R. Martin. Last week’s episode was all about fire. This week, it’s all about ice.

The title refers to what lies ahead for Jon Snow, his now lover Ygritte, Orell, Tormund Giantsbane and the Wildlings. He’s proving his loyalty to Mance Rayder. Now can he lead the Wildings on their dangerous mission to climb The Wall? Will they be able to meet the challenge?

The actors playing in this storyline had to meet their own challenge. They trained in wall climbing so they could perform the scene on a 50-foot tall mockup set while snow and wind machines simulated the bitter cold environment. It took a week of filming to make these scenes happen.


Another type of ice runs through the veins of Tywin Lannister. As we saw at the end of the last episode, he is busy planniing weddings for his children Cersei and Tyrion as well as Sansa Stark to create strategic alliances that will benefit his house. What’s love got to do with it? Absolutely nothing.   

Robb Stark followed his heart by marrying Talisa. Now he’s got to pay the price and figure out a way to make amends with House Frey so he can repair their own critically important alliance if he’s going to take on the Lannisters.

The sinister priestess Melisandre pays a visit to the Riverlands, and seeks out someone to discuss a plan of mutual benefit. 

Lord Roose Bolten must now decide what to do with The Kingslayer, Jaime Lannister.

This episode was written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss, and directed by Alik Sakharov.
