The fourth season of HBO’s hit drama series begins tonight, unless you stayed up to watch the simulcast last night. Based on the bestselling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin - and just in case you want to catch up at this late stage in the game - Game of Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility, no less. It’s set on the continent of Westeros, where summers and winters can last years, and only the lust for power is eternal. The drama series stars Charles Dance and our own Aidan Gillen, Liam Cunningham and Jack Gleeson.
