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!

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!"

See Cory and Topanga All Grown Up in the First Girl Meets World Trailer

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.

Drew Carey 'Felt All Along' That Monday's DWTS Routine Would Be His 'Breakout'

There's no dancing around it – Drew Carey is an improved ballroom performer.

The comedian, 55, who danced a 33-points-out-of-40 routine with Witney Carson during partner change-ups week on Monday's Dancing with the Stars, had a hunch this would be the one where he'd show how he's improved.

"I felt all along throughout rehearsal that this could be a breakout performance," Carey told PEOPLE backstage after his number, which earned him three points higher than the previous week's dance with regular partner Cheryl Burke. "I think a lot of time comics get a short shift on the show. They don't think comics can dance, and I want to disprove all that."

So, just what was it that made Carey so certain he'd wow the judges this week?

Candace Cameron Bure kicked off her career at age 10, starring on the popular series Full House. Since the show wrapped in '95, the actress got married, had three kids and wrote two books. She's been paired with two-time mirror ball-winning champ Mark Ballas for season 18 of Dancing with the Stars and she'll be sharing her experience with PEOPLE readers.

Tonight we reveal our switch-up partner! Thank you for all your Twitter votes in choosing my new pro. I think you're going to be surprised about who it is. I sure was!

The switch-up is only for one week and we'll go back to our original partners, which I was happy to hear, but I also have to say that I've enjoyed every moment with my new partner. His style and teaching technique is different than Mark's. I can't say one is better than the other, just different and I'm excited to take everything I'm learning from this week's pro and put it into practice with Mark.

See These Disney Princesses Become the Women of Game of Thrones

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.
