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!

Apparently certain Mad Men fans are like the show's narrative progress or one of Betty's dinner parties or from-scratch cakes: they take their time and don't rush it.

So before the last season kicks off Sunday on AMC at 10 p.m., here is what you need to know (warning: if you are a binge-watcher and haven't gotten to season six, stop reading now or forever hold your spoiler-griping):

Let's be clear: There's nothing funny about drug addiction, nor is there anything to be gained from glamorizing it.

But there have still been some amazing characters struggling – with varying degrees of silliness – with addiction on television.

As Edie Falco returns to television Sunday in Nurse Jackie, we're looking at other famous addicts from the small screen who have captured our hearts.

Don Draper certainly has a type. To use the comparison brought up by a memorable Sterling-Cooper ad pitch, Mad Men's mysterious protagonist has always gone more for Jackies than Marilyns. (As his marriage to Betty proved, when it comes to blondes, Don prefers the Grace Kelly model.)

To celebrate the premiere of Mad Men's final season, let's look back at the bevy of intellectual brunettes who have loved, lost and even sometimes married the cipher at the heart of the AMC drama.

It's so hard to say goodbye.

And when it comes to a hit show like Mad Men, which premieres the first episode of its seventh and final season on Sunday, that saying goes for the fans and actors alike.

"It's definitely getting sad," Elisabeth Moss told PEOPLE at the show's final season premiere party at Arclight Cinemas in Los Angeles on April 2. "We just started the last seven episodes that will air next year. It feels like it's almost the end. It's very strange."

So after seven seasons on the show, is she ready to move on? "The serious answer is of course, yes, it’s time for everyone to move on at a certain point," said Moss, 31. "The not serious answer is no, and I will be staging a sit-in and not leaving. Ever!"

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.

In case you weren't feeling old enough, the first trailer for the upcoming Boy Meets World spin-off has hit the Web, showing the evolution of Cory Matthews from wisecracking middle-schooler to wisecracking dad.

OK, so that may just be the millennial interpretation of events; for the tweens Girls Meets World is aimed at, the teaser introduces the adventures of Riley Matthews (Rowan Blanchard) and her best friend, Maya, whose troublemaking schemes are foiled by Riley's parents, a couple the camera seems to spend a longer-than-average amount of time lingering over.
