Media Alert - Say it ain't so! Game changing second season of HBO's epic Game of Thrones draws to a close Sunday, June 3 on HBO Canada

  • Second season of Game of Thrones establishes series as the most-watched series on HBO Canada, The Movie Network and Movie Central

TORONTO, June 1, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Will Jon Snow escape the clutches of the wildings? Will Daenerys be reunited with her dragons? Can Theon maintain his unholy grip on Winterfell? These are among the many questions going into the highly anticipated second-season finale of Game of Thrones on Sunday, June 3 at 9 p.m. ET/MT on HBO Canada, a multiplex of Corus Entertainment's Movie Central (Western Canada) and Astral's The Movie Network (Eastern Canada).

The second season of Game of Thrones is the most-watched series to date on HBO Canada. Game of Thrones has also broken all series viewership records on Movie Central and The Movie Network, which carried HBO programming until the launch of the dedicated HBO Canada channel in 2008. The Emmy® and Golden Globe® winning series has been renewed by HBO for a third season.

Last Sunday's stunning Battle of Blackwater, penned by author George R.R. Martin, pitted Baratheon against Lannister in a long-awaited clash for the Iron Throne that exploded in a blaze of wildfire. With one family claiming victory, much uncertainty remains. In the finale episode: King Joffrey doles out rewards to his subjects; Theon stirs his men to action; Luwin offers some final advice; Brienne silences Jaime; Arya receives a gift from Jaqen; Dany goes to a strange place; and Jon proves himself to Qhorin.
