Chapter two, a short chapter that introduces Catelyn, Eddard Stark’s wife. A woman of faith, we see a brief insight into the relationship between herself and Eddard (Ned). To summarise this chapter, Catelyn receives news from King Robert Baratheon that Lord Jon Arryn, her brother-in-law, has died. Ned is clearly saddened by the loss. We discover that John Arryn was a second father to him and his friend, Robert Baratheon. Upon receiving the news from Robert Baratheon, we learn that Robert and the queen’s family, The Lannisters, are making their way to Winterfell; displeasing Ned greatly.
Summer span decades. Winter can last a lifetime. And the struggle for the Iron Throne has begun.

The Game of Thrones. You win, or you die.
Sherlock Holmes and Dr. Watson are called on to investigate the bizarre proceedings of The Red-Headed League, a philanthropic society which promotes the interests of men with red hair by paying them handsomely to perform small tasks.
