When Game of Thrones returns for its fourth season Sunday night, fans will get to enjoy the latest adventures in the reign of King Joffrey Baratheon, a blond tyrant who rules Westeros with an ironfisted combination of petulance and sadism. To celebrate Joffrey's impending nuptials, we've given him a wedding gift: a list of the horrible TV children just as bad as himself.

His character Hodor on HBO's Game of Thrones is a gentle giant who lives and serves in the shadows. But after revealing that he's gay, actor Kristian Nairn has been catapulted into the spotlight.
"It's been everywhere, PEOPLE, CNN, all the way down to the little local paper in Belfast," the Irish actor, 38, told PEOPLE on March 18 at the Season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones at New York's Lincoln Theater. "I don't want to be a figurehead or anything, but if I can help one person, I'll be happy."

If Game of Thrones' Red Wedding episode is any indication of what's to come on Sunday's season 3 finale, a drink may be in order.

"As a fan of the show, I was inspired by the strength and beauty of Emilia Clarke's character Daenerys Targaryen and her striking white hair," Grey Goose brand ambassador, Guillaume Jubien, tells PEOPLE. "The cocktail needed to contain delicate flavors yet maintain character. A cocktail like this really takes your party to the next level."
Plus, who doesn't love her dragons?

Listen up, ladies – to get Game of Thrones heartthrob Kit Harington's attention or maybe even his phone number, you'll need to have a joke or two handy.
"The main thing that I look for in a woman is humor," Harington, 26, told PEOPLE at the opening of the Game of Thrones exhibition in New York.
"She could be the most good looking, famous, wealthy and intelligent person, but if she can't laugh and doesn't have a sense of humor, I'm afraid she's not the one for me."
