Winter is coming! Season 3 of Game of Thrones is nearly upon us. Easter celebrations will mark the morning for some but come the evening of March 31st, everyone will be well prepared with popcorn and snacks sitting in their own iron thrones eagerly awaiting the return of favorites like Arya, Jon, Robb, and Tyrion and villains who make your stomach churn (the Lannister clan anyone?). So for anyone not caught up, you will find the recaps of seasons 1 and 2 here at Spoiler Alert. We will also be recapping season 3 as it airs live. For those of you that haven’t read the books I’ll keep the comparisons to a minimum during the recaps and summaries. For those of you that have read the books, I’ll compare and contrast at the end of each season. Enjoy!
