SAN DIEGO, April 20, 2014 – “Game of Thrones” has featured upsetting deaths of major characters. Fans were finally treated to a death they all cheered as the sadistic King Joffrey ate it (literally) in Episode 3.
In the chaotic aftermath, Joffrey’s uncle Tyrion has been arrested and is being held for the crime. It is obvious to viewers that Tyrion did not do it. So who did? The quest to solve the mystery begins in Episode 4, “Breaker of Chains,” on Sunday, April 20 on HBO at 9 p.m. ET.

The series should give its viewers the answer before the current season concludes (although no one outside the show knows for sure). In the meantime, Tyrion must try and convince his accusers he’s not responsible before his sister settles the matter permanently. He will find allies in unusual places. Recall the saying, “the enemy of my enemy is my friend.”
Meanwhile, the kingdom is spinning. Who will now sit upon the Iron Throne? Who will try to take advantage of the confusion and potential for shifting allegiances? What happens to Margaery, Cersei, and Sansa?
This is only one storyline in “Game of Thrones.” Arya and the Hound make their way to Arya’s Aunt Lysa in the Vale of Arryn. The Hound is counting on a handsome ransom to make his trip with the Stark girl worth the trouble.
Fierce heroine Danaerys Targaryen, the Mother of Dragons, arrives outside Meereen in her quest to free the city’s slaves. What price is she prepared to pay? Who will support her efforts? The Mother of Dragons seems to have forgotten the Iron Throne waiting for her across the Narrow Sea.
Jon Snow must prepare to lead what’s left of the Night’s Watch at Castle Black for an attack from the Wildlings and worse north of the Wall.
Bran Stark and his companions are now heading for the Wall where he hopes to find the three-eyed crow of his visions.
