The story takes place in a fictional world, primarily upon a continent called Westeros, with one storyline occurring on another continent to the east known as Essos. Like the novel, the season like the previous seasons mainly centres around the war of the five kings; after the death of Robb Stark at The Red Wedding, all three remaining kings in Westeros believe to have a claim to the Iron Throne. Meanwhile, at the wall, Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch get ready for the battle against the free folk.
