Game Of Thrones
Have we all recovered from the shock of last week’s turn of events? Have you been put off red wine and pie forever? As a fun curio, here's Jack Gleeson lecturing on celebrity culture at Oxford, dropping Baudrillard and Weber like nothing. Turns out Joffrey doesn't hate reading after all. I enjoyed all of the heated speculation in the comments last week, but, like I said, if you’ve read the books, don’t spoil the fun! Tonight we find out what happened to Joffrey... Or do we? I honestly feel more confused than I did last week, but that’s just the game, right? This episode, “Breaker of Chains,” is directed once again by Alex Graves, and it picks up right where the last one left off...

SPOILERS AHEAD. Ding dong, the witch king is dead. Last Sunday's episode of "Game Of Thrones" (recap here) turned everything on its head by killing off Joffrey, one of the most shocking moments the show has seen since, well, The Red Wedding. It was so surprising in fact, that HBO waited until mid-week to drop their usual array of behind-the-scenes material for the episode. They don't disappoint.

If there is one piece of advice in the land of Westeros, it is DO NOT ACCEPT AN INVITATION TO A WEDDING. Also, don’t get married, don’t participate in weddings, just never go anywhere or do anything. I’m starting to wonder if George R.R. Martin is an anti-marriage advocate or something. I do think that “The Lion and The Rose” (directed by Alex Graves) one-ups “The Red Wedding” in terms of sheer shock value, and I will get into that later, but let’s check in with the rest of the gang before we delve into the wedding business.

Game Of Thrones
The fourth season of “Game of Thrones” premiered just two nights ago and it appears that more people are watching the show now than ever before. On Sunday night, 6.6 million people watched the premiere on TV, which is HBO’s highest ratings since the series finale of “The Sopranos” back in 2007. That figure doesn’t even scratch the surface, however, as so many people watched the show via HBO GO that the site wound up crashing.

Welcome back, Gameheads, Throne Bones, Red Wedding Guests, et al. I am back to bring you the most ridiculous (but most entertaining! Hopefully!) recaps of “Game of Thrones,” and I’m sure you’ve all been waiting with bated breath! This is THE destination for Throne Games discussion, tell all your friends! A programming note: I haven’t read the books, so I welcome any and all fact-checking and fact-clarification, but just remember that the show leaves some stuff unclear week-to-week, and a woman only has so much time to delve into the “Game of Thrones” wiki, though I do my darndest. At any rate, I welcome all corrections, omissions, comments, but not complaints, because that’s my prerogative. Let’s dive in, shall we?

What are you doing this Sunday night? If your answer is anything but watching the season premiere of "Game Of Thrones," you're probably doing it wrong. Even if you haven't watch a single frame of the show, HBO2 has you covered: a marathon of every episode to date, back-to-back, twice, kicks off this Friday at 9 AM. But if you're already rarin' to go and need something to hold you over, perhaps this will help.
