Game of Thrones Recap: It's a Nice Day for a Purple Wedding

Originally posted 04/13/2014 10:05PM

What do they call the movie Four Weddings and a Funeral in Westeros?

Five Funerals!

That may be an exaggeration, but you know the concept of matrimony is in trouble in the seven kingdoms when an adult dwarf marrying a teenage girl who hates him is the least-depressing of all the nuptials we've seen on Game of Thrones. Sunday night's much-anticipated royal wedding episode continued the trend, with one high-profile member of the wedding party biting the dust in memorable fashion.

But like a good wedding, "The Lion and the Rose" made sure we were entertained even before the closing-act fireworks. Here's everything that happened in the fourth season's second episode.

Major spoilers below. Proceed at your own risk!

Funny Video: Hear the Game of Thrones Theme Sung by Goats

Originally posted 04/10/2014 05:50PM

In HBO's Game of Thrones, each major family takes the character of its house sigil. The proud Lannisters are lions, the hardy Starks are wolves and the squirmy Greyjoys are squids. And yet, no house in Westeros has yet claimed the noble goat as its symbol – and as the above video proves – that's a major oversight.

So let's rectify this by imagining what every major house's words would be were they to do the right thing and change their sigil to a goat:

Game of Thrones's Red Wedding & More TV Nuptials Gone Bad

Originally posted 04/11/2014 05:15PM

Ready yourself, Game of Thrones fans. It's wedding season again in Westeros. Soon Margaery Tyrell will walk down the aisle to join GoT's top twerp, King Joffrey, in holy matrimony.

The HBO show's last set of nuptials, better known as the Red Wedding, cut through the heart like a hot blade of Valyrian steel, leaving many wary about what will happen when Joffrey gets hitched. (No spoilers, book readers!)

Weddings are said to be joyous occasions, but TV doesn't always follow the rules. In preparation for Game of Thrones' next "celebration," here are the TV weddings that went horribly wrong.

Until now.

See These Disney Princesses Become the Women of Game of Thrones

Originally posted 04/07/2014 11:00AM

The Disney universe wouldn't seem to have much in common with the violent, depraved world of Game of Thrones. Sure, both have princes, castles and (occasionally) dragons, but in the seven kingdoms of Westeros, a knight in shining armor is more likely to push a kid out a window than rescue a fair maiden.

But DeviantART user DjeDjehuti noticed another core similarity: Both Disney and Game of Thrones offer a wide range of unique female characters. The prospect of a mashup was just too tempting to pass up.

PEOPLE TV Critic: Game of Thrones's Season 4 Kicks Off with Exciting Start

Game of Thrones's Season 4 Is 'Better Than Ever,' Says PEOPLE's TV Critic

It might seem to stretch credibility to say Game of Thrones is back, bigger and better than ever – as Breaking Bad taught us, even giant Ozymandias at some point peaks and shrinks down to the size of two lobby pillars – but it's true.

The first three episodes of season 4, premiering on HBO Sunday (9 p.m. ET/PT), grab the wide-flung stories of this epic and assemble them into a crackling narrative.

And that's new: Game has sometimes had a cobblestone bumpiness that throws this or that character into the bushes. You just had to go with the flow – why was Theon Greyjoy being so relentlessly, even enthusiastically tortured? At what point was the fascinating Melisandre, sort of a magical, female Rasputin, going to stop the show again? (I'm referring to the moment when she gave birth to a smoke creature in an island cave.)
