Compared to last week’s bloodbath of an episode, the season finale of “Game of Thrones” was rather subdued. Yes, it certainly set things up for next season, but the ep was minimal on climactic moments, save for Khaleesi gathering even more loyal troops for her army, Theon’s sister vowing to avenge her brother’s lost penis, and Arya proving she’s hardly a little girl anymore. [Update: I totally forgot to mention that I got weirdly teary when a certain couple was reunited at the end of the episode.) The only moment that really had me leaping out of my chair and screaming at the TV screen was when Ygritte tracked down her deadbeat boyfriend Jon Snow. While I was seriously worried we would never ever see them on screen together again — George R. R. Martin is, after all, a cruel mistress — I was also terrified Ygritte was going to kill Jon for betraying her. I mean, he’s the worst boyfriend EVER, but I don’t want him to die. Watch what happened above!
God, Conan O’Brien must have some serious dirt on “Game of Thrones” creator George R.R. Martin, because his crew at Team Coco managed to get the author to spill a boatload of spoilers about the series. Seriously, do not click play unless you want to know what kind of pet Joffrey is going to adopt, who’s going to play Daenarys when the character is rebooted after season four, and what hobby sexy Jaime Lannister takes up now that he has some free time.

God I love George R. R. Martin, creator of the “Game Of Thrones” book series A Song of Ice and Fire. The bearded longshoreman-esque super nerd appeared on “Conan” last night to discuss the most recent episode of “Game of Thrones,” in which three major characters were slaughtered in a scene best described as totally fucking gruesome. Martin can’t help but giggle as he watches the various fan reactions posted on YouTube. Such an adorable sadist he is!
After the jump, Martin talks about why he likes to kill off beloved characters, though he admits it’s gotten harder since he’s gotten to know the actors who play them on the TV show. Keep reading »
Are you sick of us talking about “Game of Thrones” yet? Too bad! Because the Red Wedding was totally cray and we are gonna be talking about that shit for days, not counting the time spent crying about it to our therapist. Our favorite fellow straight iron enthusiast Jonathan is right there with us in the obsession. The guy behind the incredible “Gay of Thrones“ recaps is back with another one, this time in mourning shawl. [Funny Or Die]
Maisie Williams plays kickass Arya Stark on “Game of Thrones,” but she also happens to have a little addiction to six-second video-making program Vine, too. In her latest, she reacts to the most recent episode of “GoT” — you know, the one where, like, SPOILER ALERT, a whole bunch of important characters died. Kind of a rough time, eh? [Vine]
“Game of Thrones” last night, holy crap, right? That shit was cray. Amelia already talked about some of the episode’s main events, but on another note, I don’t think it’s any surprise that Jon Snow is the worst boyfriend. Yes, good ol’ Ladyface crapped out pretty bad on last night’s episode when he (SPOILER ALERT!) took off without Ygritte. Total dick move. I haven’t read the books yet (What? They’re so dense!), but based on the happenings so far on the TV show, Jon Snow makes a rather crappy mate. After the jump, all the ways Jon Snow––as Ygritte might say––knows nothing about being a good boyfriend (in GIFS!). Keep reading »
