With “Game of Thrones” season five less than two months away and season four now available on DVD and Blu-ray, HBO has released two deleted scenes from last season — and in true “Thrones” fashion, they’re heartbreakers.
In the first, taken from episode 402, “The Lion and the Rose,” we see the aftermath of the painful scene in which Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) ends his relationship with Shae (Sibel Kekilli) to protect her from his murderous family. In the deleted continuation, Bronn (Jerome Flynn) gives the former prostitute some tough love about the whims of the rich — which may explain why Shae felt compelled to betray her former lover at trial after Tyrion was accused of murdering his nephew Joffrey (Jack Gleeson). Thanks for nothing, Bronn!

The TV series "Spooks," also known as "Mi-5," has often been labelled the British equivalent of "24". It was a spy thriller series that ran for ten years and boasted talents that have since made names for themselves in other projects including David Oyelowo, Richard Armitage, Matthew Macfadyen, Iain Glen, Lara Pulver, Sophia Miles, Gugu Mbatha-Raw, Keely Hawes, Rupert Penry-Jones, Anna Chancellor and many more.
It was also distinctive because long before "Game of Thrones" and the like, it was not afraid to randomly kill off its core cast members - including its male leading man with the show going through at least four of those across its 86 episode run. Fitting then that 'Thrones' star Kit Harington is the new leading man in the show's jump to the big screen in the new film "Spooks: The Greater Good".
Today, the first trailer and posters for the film have been released, a »
