While the rest of the world was fixed on the premiere of Mad Men last night and whistling “Zou Bisou Bisou” this morning, I find myself more excited for the return of Game of Thrones on HBO. So much so, that I figured there would be no better time to post on a few of the characters. Let’s begin with the HBIC of the North, Lady Stark. As we left season 1, she was a recent widow of Eddard Stark, Lord of Winterfell. After making war upon the Lannisters for their attempt on her son’s life, she now stirs with even more anger. A confrontation is most certainly at hand, but Lady Stark has a valuable bargaining chip against the Lannisters, their most prized son, Jaime. War looms in the Seven Kingdoms and Lady Stark will no doubt play an important and badass role.
