Which is good, considering there would just be too many big moments happening right at the end.
All but 2 episode titles were released. I'm going to spoiler it because the person who posted it, gave their 2 cents on what the episodes could entail.Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
WinterIsComing.net recently revealed the episode titles for Game of Thrones season 3, including a third name-change for the George R. R. Martin-penned episode 7. Check them out! SPOILERS AHEAD.
• Ep. 301 – Valar Dohaeris
Season 2 ended with the episode “Valar Morghulis” which means “all men must die” in Braavosi, so it seems fitting season 3 should begin with the flipside of that statement, “Valar Dohaeris,” which means “all men must serve/live.”
•Ep. 302 – Dark Wings, Dark Words
Though this is a general Westerosi term for ominous tidings, it would be very cool if it was also referring to the events in Astapor.
• Ep. 303 – Walk of Punishment
This brings to mind a very specific journey made by a Lannister in A Dance With Dragons but probably this refers to Jaime and Brienne being captured. Or it might be about everyone’s walkabout. Jon, Jaime, Brienne, Arya, Robb, Bran, and more have a lot of journeying to do before they reach the climax of their individual stories.
Or... we could see Theon?
• Ep. 304 – And Now His Watch is Ended
Obviously referring to the events at and beyond the Wall.
• Ep. 305 – Kissed by Fire
Sounds like we might see the Sandor Clegane / Beric Dondarrion duel in this episode!
• Ep. 306 – to be determined
• Ep. 307 – The Bear and the Maiden Fair
George R. R. Martin’s episode, obviously containing Brienne’s bear fight and Jaime’s tentative step towards Not Being A Complete Monster. The book contains some ominous clues in this scene towards the events of the Red Wedding, as well.
• Ep. 308 – to be determined
• Ep. 309 – The Rains of Castamere
Oh boy. Tissues at the ready, everyone.
• Ep. 310 – Mhysa
Mhysa is the Ghiscari term for “mother.” Since the final episodes of each season have focused on Daenerys, I imagine this involves her taking Meereen.
Episode 9 will no doubt be The Red Wedding episode, since that's the name of the song that was sung to signal all of the bloodshed. And I think that's pretty much how they'll end part one, with episode 10 dealing with the aftermath (including killing Joffrey at the end would be too much Holy Shit moments for the end of one season). I'm guessing part 2 will begin with Catelyn returning as Lady Stoneheart and end with that little shit Joffrey finally meeting his end.
With this season getting split in two, it's going to amazing.
