The second story arc centers on the last descendant of the realm’s deposed ruling dynasty, who has been exiled to Essos and is plotting to return and reclaim the throne. The third story arc follows the military order called the Night’s Watch as they brace themselves for the coming winter and defend the realm against threats from beyond Westeros’ northern border.
