GAMES OF THRONES set ratings records in its return last week. The second season continues on Sunday, April 8 with "The Night Lands" at 9 p.m. ET.
On a mission for Robb Stark, Theon returns home for the first time in nine years, but time has not dulled his father's bitterness at losing his only surviving son to Winterfell.
Meanwhile, Tyrion makes his presence felt as the Hand of the King, though not necessarily to the satisfaction of others in the royal court; Gendry is shocked by Arya's revelation on the road north; and Davos seeks naval power from an old acquaintance, the pirate Salladhor Saan.
Watch a video preview below.
Created and executive produced by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the ten-episode second season of GAME OF THRONES plays out against the backdrop of a fast-approaching winter 0 the season of the white raven. In King's Landing, the coveted Iron Throne is occupied by cruel young Joffrey, counseled by his conniving mother Cersei and his uncle Tyrion, who has been appointed Hand of the King.
