Game of Thrones season 3 is scheduled to premiere on March 31, 2013, and if you ask me, that's way too long to wait. They're currently in the process of filming, and everyone's being rather tight-lipped (obviously) about what's going to go down this season.
If you've read A Storm of Swords (which, if you haven't, do it, it's amazing), you're probably well aware of the sheer amount of plot they're going to have to get through. But they've kept production such a secret that I don't even know if they're splitting the book into two seasons. Not sure why they're not asking me about it -- they definitely should split it into two!
But to get you even more excited, Emilia Clarke, who plays Daenerys Targaryen (and who's dating Seth MacFarlane??), spoke with WetPaint about what's to come in season 3. Just a warning: There are some MAJOR spoilers ahead! Go do something else before reading on! Over there! Go! Away!
Of course, she wasn't able to give too much away. One of her biggest "teases"? "There are just some epic scenes basically, for Daenerys especially. It gets much bigger in Season 3."
Well, thanks for that vague hype, Queen of Dragons, but if you've read the books, you know what she's talking about! I'm about to spoil what happened in book 3, so please just stop reading now or gouge out your eyeballs if you don't want to know what we'll most likely see from her in season 3.
Daenerys goes through a lot of self-discovery through the third book, but not before she gathers up an army to take on Westeros. This is probably what she means by "epic scenes"! She agrees to give up one of her beloved dragons to get an entire army of the Unsullied, who feel no pain and are programmed to obey their leaders no matter the order.
One of the scenes I'm looking forward to most is when she orders the newly acquired slave army to turn on their own masters. Of course the dragons get involved in the action as well, and she doesn't have to give any of them up. (No wonder she admitted earlier that we're going to see more of the dragons!) She then goes on to try to free more slave cities, but things get very complicated with her and always-loyal Ser Jorah Mormont, who's desperately in love with her. I can't wait to see the scene when she finds out about his "betrayal" and how he carries out her punishment.
Talk about an epic storyline just for Daenerys alone. She'll finally get an army and sack a couple of cities, and she figures out that she can't trust anyone in the process. Can't you see why book 3 is so amazing -- and why it should be broken up into two seasons?
If you need a refresher on how awesome her character is, take a look at this video. You're welcome!
What do you think of Emilia Clarke's teasers? Which scene involving her are you most looking forward to seeing?
