If you are one of the loyal and hardcore fans of Game of Thrones TV series, you certainly know that the new season is drawing near. The Game of Thrones Season 4 premiered around the 6th of April 2014.
You also know that the main plot of the series is about the intrigues and drama between the characters to get themselves in the top spot of the kingdom hierarchy. Set in fictional lands of Essos and Westeros, some of the plot stories are intertwined and connected to each other. The drama still continues to the Season 4, and the plots are getting darker and more complicated – well, at least that’s what D.B Weiss and David Benioff promise.
Game of Thrones Season 4 start slowly and anticipation will start building – while at the same time introducing new characters. As we all know, the third season ends with the Red Wedding, the end of war, and how the Lannister clan is celebrating the victory. But celebration seems to be early as the Five Kings war is actually getting nearer. After Robb Stark – the North King – is betrayed and dead by his bannermen Freys and Boltons, Lannister clan feels like celebrating. They are triumphant as they feel getting full support from many Houses. Lod Tywin Lannister and his grandson, Joffrey Baratheon, granted Freys with Riverrun ruling and Boltons the area in North for their help.
Lannister clan knows that they could win the war because House Tyrell has helped them. So a marriage alliance of Margaery – Tyrell’s daughter – and King Joffrey has been set. But it seems that two Houses are getting dependant of one another, something that Queen Cersei fears of. Meanwhile, two kingdoms of Dorne and Vale of Arryn don’t seem to really care about the war. Lysa Arryn – Vale Lady Regent – remains neutral, but House Martell of Dorne hates Lannister so much, especially since Ser Gregor Clegane has raped and then killed Elia Martell, Doran Martell’s sister. There is another plot stirred within these Houses, and each ruler has their own plan in mind.
At the same time, power is growing in Slayer’s Bay, in the Narrow Sea. Daenerys Targayen is now becoming a real threat for the Lannister ruling. She manages to build her own army and commands dragons. She has three living dragons – really powerful and threatening weapon – as well as commanding 8,000 Unsullied warrior. She also sets off path of liberation along her way. As a former slave, she determined to set free all he slaves. She manages to free Astapor and Yunkai, and the slaves are turning to her banner. Daenerys manages to get stronger each time. Her biggest challenge is the city of Meeren, the slaver city. The task is tougher because Meeren is preparing themselves upon her coming.
Another problem arises in far away area to the North. The Night’s Watch has guarded the Wall since they’re the only barrier between the great Seven Kingdoms and the land of the undead. However, the number of Night’s Watch is decreasing drastically. Not to mention that their existing leadership is wobbly because of their current condition.
From all that happens in the Seven Kingdoms, House Stark is having darkening moment as extinction is drawing near. However, survivors of the House determine that they should stay afloat. Sansa Stark is having forced marriage with Tyrion Lannister and remaining the Iron Throne hostage. Rickon Stark finds safety and become loyal member of House Umber. Bran Stark has his own vision, so he crosses the Wall with his faithful companions. Arya Stark seeks revenge while getting protection from the man she loathes.
It seems all elements are being gathered up together, doesn’t it? If you don’t want to miss the thrill, don’t miss the premiere and watch Game of Thrones Season 4 with another mind blowing full ten episodes.
