A Game of Thrones

Chat, chat, stab-stab, chat, chat, stab-stab. This week's episode of Game of Thrones was largely a series of intimate, well-written character-driven discussions between two wounded souls in conflict – then fun stabby action scenes. And one of those fights resulted in the loss of a character who has been with the series since season 1 (AND is still alive in the books, because that's just how Thrones rolls now).

The Great Convergence – and Divergence – has begun! This week's Game of Thrones jammed two sets of characters together for the first time, while taking a shocking turn from George R.R. Martin's novels. Plus, Arya (Maisie Williams) ditched her clothes, Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) ditched his virginity, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) ditched Sansa (Sophie Turner), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) ditched his freedom and Jon (Kit Harington) ditched a man's head. All this plus prostitute cosplay(!) in our worship of the third episode of season 5, "High Sparrow."
BraavosBehold the inside of The House of Black and White! Thrones shows off this fancy new set with several shots so we can appreciate all the production detail. The House has the ambience of a gloomy spa's quiet room, where you would sit in a bathrobe sipping cucumber water waiting for your therapist.
Arya grumpily sweeps the stone floor with what looks like a Nimbus 2000. She's unimpressed with the set and annoyed with her janitorial duties. Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) gives a desperate man a cup of water, then chastises Arya for her impatience: "A girl wants to serve herself."

How did hissing ever stop being a thing? You still hear the expression "boo and hiss," but never really hear a crowd totally hiss in unison, just occasionally boo.

There could be a familiar face on the shores of Westeros soon.
Ed Sheeran has revealed that he's already in talks with the producers of the hit HBO fantasy drama Game of Thrones to discuss a role in the show.

Sunday's eagerly awaited Game of Thrones premiere gave fans plenty to talk about: The fantasy hit's first-ever flashback scene starred Mean Girl Cersei, a game-changing conversation between Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill) demanded a singularly unique recap, Daario's (Michiel Huisman) butt made a return appearance and one recurring character was subject to a brutal burning at the stake (a.k.a. what HBO's lawyers are planning to do to whoever leaked its Thrones screeners online).

Game of Thrones returns to HBO Sunday night, and whether you're more of a fan of the books or the televised series, you've surely got a few choice quotes from the franchise squirreled away for day-to-day use. (Our email signature is "Valor Morghulis.")

Forget that "winter is coming." The end is coming for fans of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones books a lot sooner than they might like.

Take the themes of love, power and revenge – stir in two gruesome murders, a prophecy of death and enough sexual innuendo to burn down the whole of Westeros – and there you have the first episode of Game of Thrones season 5 (spoiler alert).
Everyone's favorite naughty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), is safe after killing his dad and his lover and getting smuggled out of Westeros by Varys (Conleth Hill). Varys tries to persuade Tyrion to follow a new leader: "Westeros needs to be saved from itself," Varys says. He seems to favor the white-haired beauty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as a contender for the throne.
