Recap: 'Game of Thrones' Season 4 Episode 3 'Breaker of Chains' Delivers More Questions Than It Answers

3 hours ago | Indiewire Television | See recent Indiewire Television news »

Have we all recovered from the shock of last week’s turn of events? Have you been put off red wine and pie forever? As a fun curio, here's Jack Gleeson lecturing on celebrity culture at Oxford, dropping Baudrillard and Weber like nothing. Turns out Joffrey doesn't hate reading after all. I enjoyed all of the heated speculation in the comments last week, but, like I said, if you’ve read the books, don’t spoil the fun! Tonight we find out what happened to Joffrey... Or do we? I honestly feel more confused than I did last week, but that’s just the game, right? This episode, “Breaker of Chains,” is directed once again by Alex Graves, and it picks up right where the last one left off... King’s Landing … on Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) dead face.

[Warning: Spoilers ahead for Sunday's episode of Game of Thrones, "Breaker of Chains"] Game of Thrones director Alex Graves shocked fans last week with Joffrey's (Jack Gleeson) death.

As Cersei (Lena Headey) is mourning her son, Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) comes in to comfort her and pay his respects. Things get hot and heavy between the siblings/lovers, but when Cersei attempts to put a stop to it, Jaime rapes her. To add another layer to the

'Game Of Thrones': Gwendoline Christie On Brienne's Feelings

16 April 2014 6:43 PM, PDT | Access Hollywood | See recent Access Hollywood news »

In addition to The Purple Wedding ending in "Game of Thrones" last Sunday, there were some big dramatic moments for several characters, including one that cut Gwendoline Christie's Brienne of Tarth to her core.

Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) pointed out Brienne's unladylike behavior, suggested she flitted between masters, and then dropped the mic after pointing out that the physically powerful plain Jane is in love with the Kingslayer -- Jaime Lannister.

"When I read the script, part of me died and the actor part of me was thrilled that that poor character could be placed in that awful ...

20 Awesome Moments When Comic Book Movie Villains Totally Owned

15 April 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | Obsessed with Film | See recent Obsessed with Film news »

Warner Bros.

For a lot of people, the best and most exciting part of any comic book movie are the villains. And why not? Unlike the heroes, villains aren’t bound by rules, morals or obligation – they do whatever they want, when then they want to do it. And aside from usually being gifted with awesome abilities like super intelligence or super strength, comic book villains are almost aways of the eccentric kind. Whereas heroes have to play into the light, presenting themselves in a serious or stoic manner, a villain gets to play into the shadows: weird, quirky or just batsh*t crazy.

Since the early 2000s, cinema has gifted us with an elite smörgåsbord of brilliantly-realised villains, all of whom have been played memorably by a variety of talented actors: from Heath Ledger to Ben Kingsley, Kevin Spacey to Michael Shannon, these performers have relished the chance to »

Game of Thrones Season Four – Episode 2 Review

15 April 2014 7:54 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Oliver Davis reviews the second episode of Game of Thrones Season Four….

The Lion and the Rose.

Directed by Alex Graves.

Written by George R. R. Martin.

Nobody major usually dies in these earlier Game of Thrones episodes. The big plot events are often kept until the close of a season, historically episode 9. So don’t worry, you can relax for a moment, just sit back and enjoy th-

Crap.

Theon

Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen), or ‘Reek’ to his friends/masochistic torturers, is having a bad time of it up North. After appearing sporadically in Season 3, and not at all in last week’s series opener, the reminder of how frail and subservient the once-cocksure character has become is rather distressing. You actually feel empathy towards the guy – the same guy who betrayed his adopted Stark family and had the most annoying sneer this »

Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2 Review – ‘The Lion and the Rose’

15 April 2014 1:47 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Weddings in Westeros are dangerous things; the uniting of families – all at war with one another in some manner – means chaos in all shapes and sizes is likely to ensue. With the aftermath of ‘The Red Wedding’ long lingering in the memory, the events which unfold at King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Queen Margaery’s (Natalie Dormer) matrimony is likely to strike a similar chord.

Opening with Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) stalking a young woman with an archer companion and a band of bloodthirsty hounds eagerly awaiting to tear away at human flesh, this is Game of Thrones at its darkest; unrelenting and merciless from the introducing frame. Ramsay has successfully brainwashed Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen) or ‘Reek’ as he now responds to, and presents the genitalia-stripped prisoner as a bargaining trophy to his somewhat unimpressed father Roose Bolton who claims to have required Theon as a valuable hostage and tool »

Joffrey was about to die and everybody was pretty relaxed about it.

There was Tyrion, reading his iPad and occasionally making a joke. Sansa Stark was happily dancing in her chair. Lord Tywin was pacing, having a smoke. Prince Oberyn socialized, thrilled to be there. Lady Margaery took a stroll through the park, running her lines. Jaime Lannister practiced sword moves with his left hand.

On the set of Game of Thrones in Croatia last September, the largest gathering of series regular actors since the show’s pilot assembled in a Dubrovnik park for Joffrey’s wedding celebration. The sequence »

Game Of Thrones: Who Killed King Joffrey Baratheon?

13 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Game of Thrones’ fourth season premiere ended with the death of Joffrey Baratheon, the villainous boy king who ruled from the Iron Throne in King’s Landing for only a short – but bloody – time.

Who Killed Joffrey?

There’s no question that Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) is dead, as he struggled futilely to take in air after washing down a bite of wedding pie with wine. But it’s not known who killed him. While Joffrey appeared to finger his uncle Tyrion before he took his last dying breath, the number of people in King’s Landing for his wedding – The Purple Wedding – to Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) that could have wanted him dead is high.

It seems more than likely that Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) did not poison his nephew. Over the months of Joffrey’s reign, Tyrion repeatedly issued joking threats at his sister Cersie (Lena Headey) that he's end Joffrey, »

'Game Of Thrones' Recap: Joffrey Is Poisoned; Tyrion Implicated In Nephew's Death

13 April 2014 9:00 PM, PDT | Uinterview | See recent Uinterview news »

Game of Thrones celebrated King Joffrey’s nuptials to Magaery Tyrell on Sunday night’s episode – a lavish affair that ended with the silent, bloodless death of Joffrey, the loudest and most wantonly violent ruler in the realm.

Game of Thrones Recap

Before the wedding unfolds in King’s Landing, Game of Thrones visits Ramsay (Iwan Rheon) over at the Dreadfort, where he’s still holding Theon Greyjoy aka Reek (Alfie Allen) prisoner. With Reek in tow, Ramsay searches and hunts down a young woman with the aid of dogs. She’s to be punished for having made one of Ramsay’s conquests jealous.

The fun and games end for Ramsay when his father Roose Bolton (Michael McElhatton), who’s returning from his slaughtering at the Red Wedding, arrives. Proudly, Ramsay shows off the castrated Reek. Instead of winning his father’s praise, Ramsay is admonished for devaluing the Greyjoy boy, »

‘Game of Thrones’ Puts Its Own Spin on Happily Ever After (Spoilers)

13 April 2014 7:02 PM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Game of Thrones” has certainly put its own spin on weddings, one unlikely to leave anyone grumbling about the food or wondering where the happy couple’s registered. And by all means, if anyone invites a child serve as ring bearer or flower girl, it would be best to respectfully decline.

Still, the second episode of the fourth season – coming off regal ratings for the program’s premiere – did mark one of those sure-to-be-buzzed-about moments in a series that has already seen one wedding ceremony go viral, thanks in part to its unusually florid color scheme. At this point, “Game of Thrones” is one of those rarefied commodities that can make the Internet explode.

With that preamble out of the way (and Spoiler Alert for those who haven’t watched, obviously), Sunday’s installment – in a masterpiece of suspense, tension and awkward silences, written by book author George R.R. Martin »

Review: 'Game of Thrones' - 'The Lion and the Rose'

13 April 2014 6:54 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

A review of tonight's "Game of Thrones" coming up just as soon as I taste some grilled seagull... There are times when I feel like a broken record on the subject of "Game of Thrones" and my wish that Benioff and Weiss didn't have quite so much story to deal with, or at least that they could re-structure the show in a way that would allow for longer stints in each destination, if not for periodic single-location episodes like "Blackwater." But then we get an episode like "The Lion and the Rose," in which the first half is structured like your typical "Game of Thrones" episode, while the second half is essentially one long scene at Joffrey and Margaery's wedding, and I'm reminded all over again of the power of concentrated storytelling over the diffuse kind that Benioff, Weiss and company (including George R.R. Martin, who wrote this script) usually have to practice. »

Paramount considering series based on 'The Truman Show'

11 April 2014 1:25 PM, PDT | Hitfix | See recent Hitfix news »

(Cbr) After wishing his audience a “good afternoon, good evening and goodnight,” Truman Burbank is ready to wish you “good morning” again. The Wrap reports that Paramount’s new television division is planning a slew of new shows based on their movie catalogue, including one possible series inspired by "The Truman Show". The Jim Carrey-starring drama focused on a young man who lived in the same town for his entire life — without ever realizing that the whole experience was fabricated and documented as a reality television project. A television show about a movie about a television show — that’s some meta-level development right there. Given the right creative team and talent attached, a "Truman Show" TV series could actually be worth exploring. Beyond "The Truman Show", Paramount is also reportedly looking into making a new series based on the "Terminator" films. If it moves forward, this would mark the »

Not everyone makes the best first impression. And Chelsea Handler certainly didn't shy away from expressing her initial thoughts about her guest Nikolaj Coster-Waldau during Chelsea Lately. "Well, I've never met you, but I saw you on Game of Thrones when you were having sex with your sister (Lena Headey)," she quipped to the Danish actor during Thursday's show. "Made an impression?" the 43-year-old, who plays Jaime Lannister on the HBO hit series, replied with a smile. "Yeah that was a big impression!" the late night host admitted. All jokes about Coster-Waldau's incestuous onscreen relationship aside, the actor opened up about a past unique living »

The History of National Siblings Day

National Siblings Day is celebrated the 10th of April and was founded by Claudia Evart, a paralegal in Manhattan, who began the celebration in honor of her two siblings who died young. The date of April 10 is special to Evart, as it marks her late sister’s birthday.

“Like many, I have these pictures of my brother and sister, who are both gone, but remain with me daily, not just in these pictures, but in my daily thoughts and in my heart. I lost both of them in tragic accidents, making me understand the everlasting bond we have with our siblings,” Evart is quoted as saying on the Siblings Day Foundation website. »
