In the third season of the hit HBO original series based on the bestselling book series A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. This epic drama is set in the grounded fantasy continent of Westeros, where ambitious men and women of both honor and ill-repute live in a land where summers and winters can last years. In Season 3, family and loyalty will be the overarching themes, and many critical plot points from the first two seasons will come to a violent head, with several major characters meeting cruel fates. While a primary focus continues to be on King’s Landing, where the Lannisters barely held onto power after a savage naval onslaught from Stannis Baratheon, stirrings in the North threaten to alter the overall balance of power in Westeros. Robb Stark, King of the North, will face a major calamity in his efforts to build on his victories over the Lannisters in Season 2, while further north, Mance Rayder (new character) and his huge army of wildlings begin an inexorable march south to scale the Wall. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen – reunited with her three deadly, fast-maturing dragons – attempts to raise an army of slaves to sail with her from Essos to Westeros, in hopes of eventually overthrowing the Iron Throne.
From the manufacturer
The Targaryen family hails from the city of Valyria on the eastern continent of Essos. House Targaryen is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, ruling the Seven Kingdoms for three centuries before being overthrown by House Baratheon killing most of the family in the process. Their house words are 'Fire and Blood', a fitting motto for a family with fire-breathing dragons.
House Stark of Winterfell is one of the Great Houses of Westeros, ruling over the vast region, The North. Winterfell, an ancient castle known for its strength, is under their rule. Their family line is one of the oldest of Westerosi nobility, stretching back over 8,000 years. As they are the most influential and notable power in the North, they’ve earned the devotion and respect from the Houses surrounding them. Unlike other House mottos that usually boast or threaten, the Stark’s has one that will always be relevant: ‘winter is coming’.
House Lannister of Casterly Rock is one of the most powerful families and oldest dynasties. As their seat is Casterly Rock, they have access to the most productive gold mine in the Westerlands, making them the wealthiest family in the realm. Their official family motto is 'Hear me Roar!' but what they’re well-known for saying is: 'A Lannister always pays his debts' and usually mean it in a more literal sense.

Definitely the strongest season so far with more twists and turns, betrayals and life changing events. Introducing a few new characters, namely the evil Ramsey Snow of house Bolton (If you thought Joffrey was bad wait until you get a load of this lunatic). As previously quiet and obedient houses and bannermen begin to make a mark for themselves on westeros.
Stannis licks his wounds after his defeat in season two, becoming ever more obsessed with his new God and the Red Woman Melisandre, desperately trying to recuperate and get back in the game as a contender for the throne. Making life hard for his ever suffering but loyal second in command Davos as he attempts to reason with his Zealot obsessed king. Davos is such a likeable character and his loyalty to Stannis is both heart warming and heart breaking as we watch Davos desperately play off and counter the many savage suggestions of the religious Melisandre, with great chemistry between all three characters you can feel the tension in the room with every scene as the two confidants battle for their kings mind which is forever unbalanced and as likely to take either side depending on his mood.
Daenerys begins her liberation of slavers bay quickly gaining momentum and power throughout the series in the way only the dragon born can, quickly becoming the most powerful character in the show, gathering more and more allies to her cause, she becomes seemingly unstoppable, yet remains one of the viewers favourite candidates for the throne as she shows again and again compassion and fairness for the people she comes into contact with, really becoming the light in this dark world. Followed by her loyal and love struck aid Jorah he also has new challenges to face as he finds himself in competition with the new allies flocking to her side, including the humiliated Commander of the Kings Guard from season one Ser Barristen Selmy and the handsome Daario Naharis of the Second Sons mercenaries.
Robb Stark once again faces betrayal as he attends his grandfathers funeral in River Run, introducing us at last to the Tullys including the humorous Blackfish and the Mr Bean of Westeros; Edmure Tully. Watching Robb struggle to handle the political aspect is quite sad as we watch the young wolf, who has never lost a battle decline purely due to his lack of political leadership and his restricting honour, both marching him towards a fate like his fathers. The similarities between Ned and Robb become more apparent as he makes foolish decisions all in vain attempts to do the right thing or make up for mistakes made, all culminating in one of the most memorable and terrible scenes of the entire show.
Theon Greyjoy, probably has the worst time of it in this season, after his betrayal of Robb in season two he finds himself captured by an unknown assailant and very very violently tortured both Physically and psychologically as well as mutilated, forever distorting and changing the character into somebody entirely new. Despite his betrayals and actions in season two you really begin to feel for the character again very early on, even forgiving his actions as he confesses how he really feels about himself and is made the play thing of the sadistic Ramsey Snow. Some fantastic acting done by both actors in all of their scenes really making for a horrible experience for viewers, i fear this may be the last season we ever see Theon Greyjoy...
Tyrion continues to play the game in kings landing, battling with his sister for their fathers approval who has now taken his place as Hand of the King. Tyrion now has a harder time keeping his head above water, struck from all his power by his father, Tyrion is left vulnerable to the cruelty of Joffrey who continues to enjoy torturing his subjects. Watching him keep his composure under such odds and witnessing the cruelty of his father first hand, Tyrion remains a solid favourite of the fans, who after his heroes exploits in season two deserves a lot more than he gets in this season.
Jon Snow follows his new Wildling lifestyle while ever secretly looking for an opportunity to escape back to his fellow men of the nights watch, Jon Snow begins to realise the real threat to Westeros and begins to understand that the only way to win the real war is unity... something nobody else wants. Breaking his nights watch vows and literally skating on real thin ice Jon begins to craft himself as the hero Westeros needs.
Jaime Lannister continues life as captive, with the ever honourable and faithful Brienne charged with transporting him the two run into all sorts of adventures on their way to Kings Landing, including run ins with not so honourable Stark Soliders, farmers and then the sadistic soldiers of house Bolton and their leader Lock. Survival looks bleak for the pair and as Jaime attempts his usual charm and smarmy talk to get out of a situation it backfires changing his life forever, if he survives.
Overall, definitely the best season so far, completely shifting the power around the country and countless heartbreaking revelations and moments, this is the defining season that will make and break lifelong fans, if you though the execution of Ned Stark was the pinnacle of Game of Thrones, that seems like childs play after this season.
As with previous releases, there are bonus features but they're nothing to write home about. However, a series this good doesn't need them!
As opposed to the last series (6), they were still introducing more characters than they were killing...but not by much as you would expect.
There are many classic episodes in this season, not least the infamously shocking and heart breaking episode 9, Rarely does a TV episode carry as much emotional weight as the so-called 'Red Wedding,' and never have I seen such a shocking twist better executed and shot.
As usual, there are loads of intertwining stories and many new and old ones appear and begin as others end.
Another surprise about this season is that it is only 15, it is just as, if not more violent than the previous two and also contains some off screen horrors as well.
The extras are also great and very interesting both for fans of the series and at a distance medieval historians, or at least shows how history has influenced the series.
This is the second time I've watched this series and I think it's definitely better the second time around and may just be the best of them, along with 4 and 6.
