GoT S02 Episode 1 The Long Awaited Sequel

After a long wait, the new Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1 offered pretty much everything one could ask for. With a glimpse at Dragonstone in the new title sequence and an anticipation of more supernatural elements to come, Season 2 definitely shows a lot of promise.

Right into the Action………

The storyline kicks off in style, continuing from where the last episodes left off with Joffrey Baratheon unscrupulously exercising his power as king on his name day, nearly executing Ser Dontos for being drunk.

We also see Daenerys and Jorah again, lost in the Red Waste desert, and on the opposite continent, Jon Snow still investigating the mysterious happenings in the Haunted Forest.

The flow of the entire episode is surprisingly smooth despite the changes of scenery, and the complexity of the intrigues make it worthy of being compared to a captivating strategy game with volatile events just waiting to explode on all sides.

One of the key aspects you will likely notice is the way in which facts and events are portrayed in a graphic and enticing manner, keeping the viewer literally glued to the chair in anticipation of the following developments.

The Intrigues of Cersei Lannister

An important part of Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1 focuses on Queen Regent Cersei Lannister’s incestuous relationship with Jaime, her twin brother, and the consequences that the rumors would bring, particularly regarding Cersei’s determination to free her brother who is currently captive and at the mercy of Robb Stark.

To top it all off, Stannis Baratheon, who was merely mentioned in the first season but did not make his appearance, stirs things up by sending a letter to all corners of Westeros, revealing the information about Cersei’s “dark” secret, and making the entire situation more delicate and potentially volatile than ever before.

Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1 – Mysteries and Expectations

There are still many mysteries revolving around the entire plot; however, based on what we can see in this episode, it is clear that season 2 has a lot more to offer than we can anticipate after the first season managed to set the stage regarding the political power games taking place throughout Westeros.

We will definitely be seeing more of Daenerys with her slow transformation in her quest towards becoming the Mother of Dragons, and another favorite, Tyrion, is also likely to appear more often now that he was granted a greater authority.

All in all, it is safe to say that Game of Thrones Season 2 Episode 1 is a fitting start for what can be expected to be an excellent series.
