Game of ThronesSM, was not only one of the most popular shows of 2013, but the media and social media explosion around its dynamic storytelling and climactic finale made it a genuine pop culture event. George R R Martin, accompanied by actresses Lena Headey and Michelle Fairley, sold out the Opera House in November and the show was the most nominated series at the 2013 Emmy Awards. On February 19th, Game of Thrones: The Complete Third Season will make its debut on Blu-rayTM and DVD.
While the Houses of Lannister, Baratheon and Stark continue to fight for the control of Kings Landing, in the far north, the enigmatic Mance Rayder has united the Wildlings into the largest army that Westeros has ever seen. The only thing that stands between him and the seven kingdoms is the Nights Watch but nobody has heard from their Lord Commander or the force that he led north of the wall. And across the narrow sea, another army and another claimant to the Iron Throne, Daenerys Targaryen, is making preparations to return and with her come dragons. In the words of Ramsey Snow: “If you think this has a happy ending, you haven’t been paying attention”.
