Review

We’re still getting to grips with new faces, but the characters are so well drawn, there’s little lost if you forget how this sprawling political fantasy slots together. It’s certainly as bloody as ever as malevolent boy king Joffrey reacts to rumours regarding his heritage. Meanwhile, the crimson comet arcing overhead is seen as an omen. Does it mark Ned Stark’s death, predict further victories for Robb or prophesy the return of the dragons?
