It’s early March and my hand jitters have begun. In one month, HBO will unleash the second season of Game of Thrones. Though they are retaining the title of the first book, season two is actually the second book of the series. So when we watch HBO in April, we are actually watching A Clash of Kings.
What will season two have for us? If you liked season one, hold on to your seats. If the writers and producers are true to the story as they were with the first book, season two should be pretty amazing. If you are a fan of the novels, many would proclaim that the second book is the best in the whole series…so far. Where Book one ended with the rising conflict between House Stark and House Lannister – A Clash of Kings sets all of Westeros afire as the multiple factions manuever to claim dominion. Can HBO capture the essence of this conflict without diminishing the strength of Martin’s characters? If season one is any indication, then I believe HBO will have another winning season on their hands.
