Welcome to the 100% spoiler-free, episode-by-episode guide to the HBO show “Game of Thrones.” The purpose of this blog is to provide recaps of each episode that will explain each location and character, battle and power struggle, family, sigil and religion, all the details and themes that will enhance your viewing experience without ruining it by giving away too much, too soon.
As someone who watched the first two seasons in rapid succession and caught up to the show just in time for the end of Season 3, I recognize how hard it is for those unfamiliar with the books to follow the multi-plot, multi-character, multi-location and multi-theme show – especially without accidentally discovering a spoiler from someone who has read the books.
So this is your resource. This blog has only scene-by-scene recaps of each episode, in order, along with some favorite quotes and occasional reflections on where we are. But nothing from the books, this is just for the HBO series. I hope you enjoy it!
