So, are you guys ready to say the words?

“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the fire that burns against the cold, the light that brings the dawn, the horn that wakes the sleepers, the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all nights to come.”

Winter will be coming again to DVD and Blu-ray on February 19 with the release of Game of Thrones Season 2, while Season 3 will air on HBO on March 31.
