Re: Game of Thrones 3.9 - "The Rains of Castamere" - Rate and discuss
A Song of Ice and Fire is not about which king will sit on the Iron Throne. It was never really about Starks versus Lannisters. The main plot of the saga is introduced right at the beginning, the prologue in both books and TV show: Winter is coming. The Others, the White Walkers, the mythological creatures of the far north, have returned after millennia. All the fighting within the Seven Kingdoms is just a sideshow to what is really coming. Will the lords of Westeros wake from the bloodbath in time to unite against the true threat?
That is what i thought when i saw the promotion for the Season 1, but it has been 17 years since the first book was written, and the Winter is still comming
