Game of Thrones Season 2 Episodes

10 Episodes 2012 - 2012

With King Robert Baratheon (Mark Addy) dead, the kingdom of Westeros is torn apart as five different men attempt to either claim the Iron Throne or simply establish independence from the rest of the continent. The contenders include Joffrey (Jack Gleeson), supposedly Robert's son but really the product of an incestuous affair; Robert's two younger brothers; Ned Stark's son Robb (Richard Madden), who seeks to make the North an independent state; and Balon Greyjoy (Patrick Malahide), who wants revenge for an earlier, failed rebellion of his people against Westeros. Meanwhile, Jon Snow (Kit Harington) journeys further into the desolate territory of the White Walkers, and Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and her dragons take refuge in a Middle Eastern-flavored city.
