See Lena Headey and Jimmy Kimmel Insult Each Other Game of Thrones Style

Originally posted 06/18/2014 01:45PM

Playing Cersei Lannister on Game of Thrones, Lena Headey spends much of her time onscreen doing three things: drinking wine, insulting people and seducing her brother.

On Monday night, Headey went on Jimmy Kimmel Live to do the first two of those things.

Sipping wine out of large medieval goblets, the actress and the TV host competed in a battle of the barbs to see who could deliver the pithiest, most passive-aggressive insults.

Game of Thrones Recap: How to Chain Your Dragons

Game of Thrones Recap: How to Chain Your Dragons

They don't celebrate Father's Day in Westeros – though you could argue, given the focus on dynastic ties and lines of succession, that every day is Father's Day in the Seven Kingdoms – but Sunday night's fourth-season finale of Game of Thrones, fittingly titled "The Children," did the holiday justice anyway.

From the dungeons of the Red Keep to the wilderness beyond the Wall, all of Westeros was taking stock of their father figures. Some exchanged old mentors for new, while others finally realized how crappy their daddies really were. One thing's for sure – after the events of this episode, most of our characters are going to need a lot of therapy.

Major spoilers below! Proceed at your own risk!

The master of literary misery, the killer of your favorite characters, George R.R. Martin has offered up his services as a hired hit man.

As part of a campaign to raise money for Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary and The Food Depot of Santa Fe, the Game of Thrones author has come up with an interesting incentive. The first two donors to give $20,000 were guaranteed to have a character, who meets a grisly death, named after them in an upcoming Song of Fire and Ice novel.

In a recent essay on the Marvel series of superhero films, Grantland's Mark Harris zeroes in on the frustrating way the billion-dollar blockbusters have borrowed the worst traits of their predecessors. "Comic books exist in a permanent state of implication," Harris writes. "Something really big is always about to happen, apocalypse is just around the corner, staggering ramifications are always impending, never quite here ... In the Marvel movies, anticipation is the orgasm."

I couldn't help thinking of Harris's words towards the end of "The Watchers on the Wall," and not just because of the Avengers-style tracking shot that formed the high-water mark of the wildling assault on Castle Black. Game of Thrones has spent two seasons hyping up Mance Rayder's attack on the Night's Watch, and as the episode's running time ran down and it became clear the battle would stretch into next Sunday's season finale, it was hard not to feel like a comic book fan flipping through the final pages of an issue, only to find that the real climax was going to come next week.
