Season 2 of the critically acclaimed HBO series Game of Thrones picks up on the cliff hangers from the first season. Primary characters from the Lannister, Stark, and Baratheon Houses seek to avenge mis-deeds, protect familial interests, and ultimately, claim their presumed rights to the Iron Throne. Influential characters such as Melisandre, Brienne of Tarth, and Jaqen H'ghar bring additional complexity to the storylines, further amping up the drama. Dubrovnik, Croatia replaced Malta as the setting for King's Landing (and also then stood in as the House of the Undying). Various locations in the barren yet beautiful Highlands of Iceland stood in as the land 'north of The Wall.' And Northern Ireland provided ruins, ports, mountains, and shorelines to portray Winterfell and other spots in Westeros.
