Nothing gives me greater joy as of the moment than typing that phrase – Winter has arrived! And by that, I mean Game of Thrones – the epic medieval fantasy series filled with backstabbing (both literal and figurative), boobs, wildfire, dragons, and ice zombies – has returned to TV-land. It is particularly cathartic to say it considering the long wait I had to endure before its big comeback; I felt like Khaleesi stranded in the midst of the Red Waste. But it’s here, and my fangirl heart is now bursting at the seams. With HBO announcing that there will only be 13 episodes left (spread out over two seasons), I’m curious and excited as to how D&D (David Benioff & D.B. Weiss) will steer the show towards a satisfying (and hopefully, George R.R. Martin-approved) conclusion.
Episode 2 will air in a few hours but, for the meantime, let me go back and relive the Season Premiere with this recap~
