5 Things to Know About 'Game of Thrones' Season 2

Do you even recognize the name of Theon Greyjoy? He was Ned Stark's ward/hostage, and season 1. You probably only gave him a passing glance, if any. Well, Theon steps into center stage in season 2, and is a perfect example of something fans need to know about this show: Everyone has a role to play. Characters that seem minor may turn out to be important; characters who seem major may be killed off at a moment's whim (see: Ned Stark and Khal Drogo).

For season 2, here are a couple of characters you've met, but may not remember well. Also be sure to look at our comprehensive season 2 character guide for further guidance:

  • The Hound & The Mountain - Warriors of House Lannister, Sandor Clegane ("The Hound") is Joffrey's personal bodyguard whose face was burned by his brother Gregor ("The Mountain"), a savage marauder last seen terrorizing Catelyn Stark's home (the Riverlands) by order of Tywin Lannister.
  • Yoren - a Night's Watch Brother who is friend to Benjen and Ned Stark. He was in King's Landing recruiting prisoners when Ned was executed, and saved Arya from capture.
