As the regent queen would say: “The game of thrones is a game where you win, or you die”.

Winter is coming… back to India. This May.

HBO original series reaches a turning point thanks to the second season of the fantasy saga that promises to be the best TV show of the year: back in Westeros, a whole new scenario is setting down after Lord Eddard Stark of Winterfell has been executed by the new king and heir to the Iron Throne Joffrey Baratheon. But is he the righteous one who can claim to seat in King’s Landing?

Five kings and four Houses are going to meet on the battlefields of Westeros for the crown and for the survival of their same fate: Lannisters, Baratheons, the Young Wolf Robb Stark and Daenerys Stormborn Targaryen second of her name will set new guidelines for the control of the Seven Kingdoms, no means or sacrifice will be put aside to gain what is due, and every past bond will be challenged.

After scoring on April 1 as much as 3.9 million viewers for the US premiere, Game of Thrones – Season 2, 1st Episode scheduled to be aired on May 28 in India, where the first season of this adaptation from G.R.R. Martin’s books got a huge number of followers, especially after the show won two Emmy awards and one Golden Globe for the outstanding performance of Peter Dinklage, who plays Tyrion Lannister.

In the first episode, Robb Stark is gathering his troops and strengthening his alliances with the Lords of the North, to march to South to King’s Landing, seeking vengeance for his father’s infamous death and stating the definitive independence of Winterfell and the North from the domination of the Seven Kingdoms.

At the same time Stannis and Renly Baratheon, the two younger brothers of the late King, are setting their armies to move war against the Lannisters, but not as allies: both of them claim their right to seat on the Iron Throne, but won’t allow a future reign ruled by two kings.

Far from Westeros, beyond the Narrow Sea, in the Red Waste, Khaleesi Daenerys Targaryen is trying to rescue her people, or what still remains of her khalasar after the Mighty Khal Drogo died, from a desperate death in the red desert. At this juncture she will reach the wealthy city of Qarth: will it be her new safe home or the start of a new exodus for the Unburnt Mother of Dragons?

Another key character that will find himself far from the big action in Westeros will be Jon Snow of Winterfell, now a man of the Night Watch, busy to keep the Western Lands safe from what hides beyond the Wall, in the deep North, and from the raids of the Wildlings.

This is just a hint for Game of Thrones- Season 2, 1st Episode, but surely will awake the Indian viewers’ curiosity.

Much more will be revealed during this season, as well as new landscapes will widen the boundaries of Westeros. Cast and crew took several shooting stages across Europe, Island for the lands beyond the Wall, Dubrovnik in Croatia lent its views for King’s Landing, while Belfast and other European regions set the scene for Westeros.

This new installment for the Game of Thrones saga will not disappoint the Indian audience, more magic, more battles; more blood will be spilled for the never ending game of power.
