Game of Thrones Recap: The Five Stages of Grief

Originally posted 05/05/2014 06:00AM

Chaos and loss are facts of life in Game of Thrones – if an ice zombie isn’t stealing your baby, then a mad king is chopping your father’s head off.

Still, three episodes after Joffrey’s death, our characters are starting to figure out their way forward in Tommen’s Westeros. In the somber, subdued "First of His Name," we see what the fifth stage of grief looks like in Westerns; if there’s one mode that pervades throughout Sunday’s episode, it’s a resigned, weary acceptance.

This isn’t to say that the seven kingdoms have been transformed into a caring, sharing society. It remains a (literally) cutthroat world full of violence and deprivation, thanks in part to characters who aren’t quite so far along.

Major spoilers below. Read at your own risk!

Book readers occupy a privileged position in Game of Thrones fandom, looking down at Unsullied fans with the smug knowledge that, no matter how crazy things get, they at least have their literary road map to fall back on.

Not this week.

For most of its runtime, "Oathkeeper" was one of Game of Thrones's catchup episodes, advancing characters and storylines piece by piece to set up more interesting things down the road. Then the ending happened, answering a question that had dogged fans since the '90s, and in typical prestige-drama form, raising whole new questions of its own.

VIDEO: How Well Does Nikolaj Coster-Waldau Know Game of Thrones?

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau on The Other Woman, the Iron Throne and More

Originally posted 04/27/2014 06:15PM

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau might be used to the Iron Throne, but his latest role involves a different kind of throne.

Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime Lannister on Game of Thrones, is pivoting to a more comic role in The Other Woman that involves its fair share of potty humor. But Coster-Waldau is more of a fan of The Other Woman's raunchy humor than you might expect the man behind Jaime Lannister to be.

Everyone in Game of Thrones is trying to get somewhere: home, the Iron Throne, over the Wall, away from the blood-hungry Lannisters. Imagine how much easier these journeys would be with Google Maps.

Sadly, Wi-Fi probably won't be coming to Westeros anytime soon, but a GOT fan has created the next best thing to the Google app, A Song of Fire and Ice Speculative World Map.

'Let It Go(T)': Frozen Meets Game of Thrones in This Amazing Mashup (Video)

Originally posted 04/21/2014 11:25AM

WARNING: This video contains Game of Thrones spoilers.

There's no slowing down Frozen's hit song "Let It Go." Now Idina Menzel's catchy ballad has joined forces with Game of Thrones to create the mashup "Let It Go(T)".

Sorry, Frozen groupies: This is a parody meant for Westeros fanatics. "Let It Go(T)" asks the questions (in rhyme) many viewers have wondered about the HBO show. How are we supposed to keep all these bearded guys straight? Did they just recast Daario in season 4 without saying anything? And seriously, when is winter coming?

Game of Thrones Recap: The Ends Justify the Mean (Spoilers)

Originally posted 04/20/2014 10:00PM

For the second time in four episodes, this week's episode of Game of Thrones finds the world of Westeros reeling from the death of one of its young kings.

Just as the aftermath of last season's Red Wedding had each character in the Seven Kingdom's dealing with their place in the new Lannister hegemony, the murder of Joffrey exploded that burgeoning stasis, and our assorted cripples, bastards and broken things have found themselves adrift in a world where nobody's sure exactly who's on top any more.

How do they deal with this? For most characters in "Breaker of Chains" it's by hunkering down and thinking of the long term, no matter how much pain each decision causes them in the present.

Alas, Scandal's season 3 finale is upon us. Soon there'll be no more Liv and Fitz makeout sessions, heated walk-talks through White House corridors or oddly angled camera shots hoping to hide Kerry Washington's growing baby belly.
