The game of thrones may be dizzyingly complex, but there's one simple rule that still holds true: Like any competition, it requires people to root against. That's where the characters on our list of the HBO show's greatest villains come in. Sure, the story prefers to color its conflicts in shades of gray rather than black and white, but that doesn't stop it from boasting some of the best worst people the small screen has ever seen.
Some are complicated characters who've revealed both good and bad sides of themselves over time. »
To no surprise, HBO has already renewed Game of Thrones for a seventh season (not that there was any danger of the show being cancelled). Will the channel's very popular series grow in the ratings this time around or, will the numbers decline? Stay tuned.
Based on the best-selling fantasy book series by George R.R. Martin, Game of Thrones is an epic story of treachery and nobility in a savage world -- a place where summers and winters can last for years and the lust for power is eternal.
The large cast includes Aidan Gillen, Dean-Charles Chapman, Michael McElhatton, Gwendoline Christie, Jerome Flynn, Hannah Murray, Alfie Allen, Tom Wlaschiha, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Carice van Houten, Nathalie Emmanuel, Iain Glen, Michiel Huisman, Indira Varma, Jessica Henwick, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Rosabell Laurenti Sellers, Liam Cunningham, Kit Harington, Iwan Rheon, Maisie Williams, Isaac Hempstead-Wright, Sophie Turner, »

Finally showing back up after a year’s mini break on the other side of the Wall (chilly weather, sparse accommodation, but reasonable rates), Brandon Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) pops seamlessly back into the narrative as he continues his padawan learner training with Game of Thrones‘ Obi-Wan, Three-Eyed Raven, now in the legendary form of Max von Sydow (who hopefully will stick around longer here than he did in Star Wars: The Force Awakens). Last we saw Bran, at the very end of Season Four, he was told “you will never walk again, but you will fly,” which if you’re thinking sounds like quite a backhanded reassurance given Bran quite liked the idea of, y’know, walking, then don’t worry – now he can travel in time. How cool is that?! More accurately he can see through time, projecting he »

Season 6 of Game of Thrones continued tonight with "Home", which may go down in the show's history as one of the most memorable episodes. Following this epic episode, HBO has released a new preview for Episode 3, "Oathbreaker", which teases a number of intriguing developments for next week's episode. We also have a number of behind-the-scenes previews which shed more light on "Home". If you haven't seen this episode yet, there will be Massive Spoilers below, so read on at your own risk.
The Season 5 finale, "Mother's Mercy", ended with the brutal killing of Jon Snow (Kit Harington), who was murdered in cold blood by Aliser Thorne (Owen Teale) and several other brothers of the Night's Watch. Many fans had speculated that the priestess Melisandre (Carice Van Houten) may be able to use her magical powers to bring Snow back from the dead, since another high priest, Thoros of Myr (Paul Kaye »
Game of Thrones kicks back into high gear after a somewhat lackluster season premiere. "Home" is a hurricane of plot development for season 6, so stop reading this instant if you want to avoid spoilers. Fans everywhere can breathe a sigh of relief. The Great Stark Hope has not shed his mortal coil. Jon Snow is alive and back from the dead as he is resurrected by Melisandre (Carice van Houten) in the closing seconds of the episode. This was widely expected, but producers at HBO dragged it out as long as possible. I'm sure they took some pleasure twisting the knife in the fan base. Home also marks several shifts in leadership amongst the warring families, and the return of a Stark not seen since season four.
The episode begins in the far north beyond the wall. A much grown Bran Stark (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) is in a trance with the »
The following post contains a major spoiler from Sunday’s Game of Thrones.
Ramsay Bolton sends his regards.
No, the Game of Thrones sadist didn’t actually utter those words in Sunday’s episode, but he might as well have: The bastard’s attack on his father, Roose Bolton, was as surprising — and fatal — as the blow Roose struck Robb Stark at Season 3’s infamous Red Wedding.
Roose’s death, an event that has not yet occurred in George R. R. Martin’s novels, happened just after »

Okay so this is a cheat because Jon Snow Is Dead, people. Say it with me. Dead. As a doornail. And all of you who expected him to rise from the flames by the end of this episode? Think again. That’s me included, by the way. Jon (Kit Harington) is the first person we see thanks to a lovely crane shot past the Wall (foreshadowing the fact it’s coming down soon, maybe?) into Castle Black, before the Greatest Man in Westeros (*citation needed) aka Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) pops up to do what he always does – protect and serve. Only this time he’s protecting the right man, not a false king like Stannis the (dead) Mannis, and facing the corruption of the dastardly Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale) as he begins »

Sure, Jon Snow's death (or "death," depending on where you fall on the "Is he dead?" spectrum) on "Game of Thrones" spun fans into varying levels of horror, shock and awe when it landed last season, but what about the people who make the actual series? Turns out, they're dealing with as many (if not more) emotions than the average "Got" fan.

Their reactions ran the gamut, from the disbelief of Michael McElhatton (who plays the nefarious Roose Bolton on the series), who told the outlet, "I can't believe they didn't bring »

“Game of Thrones” has never been afraid of spilling blood, and the Season 6 premiere is no exception — even as Jon Snow lies dead in the courtyard of Castle Black, at the other end of Westeros the Sand Snakes are living up to their deadly legacy, with Ellaria Sand and the daughters of Prince Oberyn quickly dispatching the last of the Martells, murdering Prince Doran and his heir Trystane to assume power in Dorne for themselves.
The Dorne storyline often felt like an excuse for narrative wheel-spinning last season, with Jaime and Bronn’s expedition to retrieve Myrcella proving to be one of the rare deviations from George R. R. Martin’s books that didn’t quite land, so choosing to trim the fat from that plot »

At Game of Thrones‘ Hollywood premiere earlier this month, a hush fell over the packed crowd inside the Tcl Chinese Theater when, in the episode’s closing minutes, Melisandre (Carice van Houten) removed her ruby choker and was revealed to be Sophia Petrillo a wizened old woman.

Game of Thrones stars Iwan Rheon, Michael McElhatton, and Alfie Allen were guests last night on Jimmy Kimmel Live, and they previewed the upcoming sixth season of the HBO fantasy drama. However, the three actors didn’t just talk about what’s next on the series; they also debuted an exclusive clip from Game of Thrones Season 6, centering on Allen’s character, Theon Greyjoy, and Sophie Turner’s Sansa Stark. In the clip, which you can watch below, Theon does his best to convince Sansa to head into the freezing cold river with him in an attempt to escape Ramsay Bolton and his hounds. Sansa

Is anyone else impatient for Sansa Stark to start saving herself on "Game of Thrones"?
Even if she were the one to save Theon/Reek, despite their difficult history, that would be a change. When the photo above was shared to tease Season 6 (which premieres this Sunday, April 24 on HBO), it looked like Sansa was helping Theon out of the water, as part of their escape from Winterfell, where we left them at the end of Season 5. But Alfie Allen was on "Jimmy Kimmel Live" last night with Iwan Rheon (Ramsay Bolton) and Michael McElhatton (Roose Bolton), and Allen explained that Sansa isn't helping Theon out of the water, he is helping her Into the water.
As you can see in the new Season 6 clip below, one of three Jkl videos with the actors, Theon is trying to rush Sansa in an escape from Ramsay's dogs, who are on the »

We're sure that somewhere out there on the internet, some twisted Game of Thrones fan fiction featuring a love story between Ramsay Bolton and Reek exists. Well, any potential shippers out there got one step closer to their fantasy when the actors who play Ramsay and Reek - Iwan Rheon and Alfie Allen, respectively - stopped by Jimmy Kimmel Live on Tuesday night. The pair, who were accompanied by Michael McElhatton (aka Roose Bolton), sat down with Kimmel to discuss the upcoming sixth season of Got and share a clip of what happened to Reek and Sansa after they escaped the Boltons' castle. They also happened to share a hug and a kiss, at the prodding of Kimmel, shattering our psyches and reminding us that, Ok, yes, Game of Thrones is just a TV show. Watch it above, and see all the characters who are returning to Got when it »

Finally, there's peace in Westeros. Sort of. Game of Thrones actors Iwan Rheon, Michael McElhatton and Alfie Allen appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! and kissed and made up. Seriously, there was a kiss and a group hug. "You know what would be a really nice thing and sell this whole idea that this is actually acting: We've seen so much unpleasantness between the two of you, if you were just to hug between the two of you, I think it would be really sweet…" Jimmy Kimmel said before Allen and Rheon embraced and kissed. "I couldn't resist," Rheon said. Awww! Are you shipping Ramsay Bolton and Theon Greyjoy? Even Papa Bolton got in on the hugs. The Game of Thrones stars also »
Michael McElhatton, Alfie Allen and Iwan Rheon appeared on the late-night program Tuesday to introduce an exclusive clip from Season 6. As it turned out, however, the greatest gift for fans came when Kimmel gave Allen and Rheon a chance to show that the feud between their characters doesn’t extend off screen.
