Game of Thrones season 5, episode 8 recap Hands down this is Jon Snow's best episode to date. The battle at Castle Black last year was good, but this episode features one of the best battle sequences in the entire series (so far). I'd put the White Walkers’ attack on Hardhome right next to the Battle of the Blackwater. Full Story
Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 7 recap Last week Sansa suffered marital rape and it set off a big controversy, as rape scenes on this show always do. A lot of that is because in the past this show has not done well by these storylines, too often reducing rape to a plot point, or worse, mere background action. Full Story
Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 6 Recap Weddings in Westeros give me such a bad feeling. Has anyone’s marriage ended well on this show? Ever? This week it’s Sansa’s turn, and boy, does her wedding night not go well. There is simply no escaping that Sansa is going to suffer as the wife of Ramsay Bolton. Full Story
Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 5 recap This week we get to see the one thing I’ve been wanting to see since Daenerys’s dragons started eating people, which is Daenerys’s dragons eating people. In retaliation for the ambush by the Sons of the Harpy that killed Barristan Selmy and seriously wounded Grey Worm, Daenerys rounds up the heads of the rich families in Meereen and then she feeds one of them to Viserion and Rhaegal. Full Story
Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 4 Recap Slightly boring episode this week since there isn’t a strong theme uniting the different narrative threads. We do get to catch up with the agenda down in Dorne—chiefly that Ellaria Sand and the super awesome kickass Sand Snakes are going to f*ck some Lannister sh*t up—but mostly it’s just table-setting for future episodes.

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 3 recap At the beginning of Game of Thrones there were a lot of characters spread across a vast land, all with different motivations. Now, five seasons into the story, there are still a lot of characters and the land is even vaster, but the motivations have narrowed down to one thing: Vengeance. Full Story

Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 2 recap I try really hard not to get invested in anyone on this show because they inevitably die in horrible ways, but Arya Stark is my tomboy spirit animal. This episode has less of a place-setting feel than last week, but we still have to establish where Arya is (as well as what’s going on in Dorne). Full Story
Game of Thrones Season 5, Episode 1 recap Well it’s nice to know that Cersei was always a brat. Season five opens with a flashback to Cersei’s childhood when she visited a witch in the woods and made the witch tell her the future. Surprisingly, the witch didn’t say, “You spend all your free time f*cking your relatives and your father will never love you. Full Story
The MTV Movie Awards are on Sunday.
Um. Game Of Thrones premieres on Sunday on both HBO and HBO Canada. FINALLY.
FINALLY! You wait 10 months to watch for only 10 weeks.
So this isn’t a conversation. Watch GOT and Mad Men first. And then hit the internet or Twitter the next morning to catch up on the Movie Awards. That’s the game plan. Because there is nothing that will happen at MTV that you can’t watch on PVR later. You don’t have to see Shailene Woodley accept her Trailblazer Award live. But you DO want to see those dragons as soon as possible.
Have a great weekend!

So I’m taking over recapping duties for Games of Thrones this season as Duana is focusing on Mad Men’s final season. I came a little late to the Thrones party but my positions are the following: I don’t have a favorite house because I’m convinced everyone is going to die; Jon Snow is The Worst; I’m here for the Tyrion and Varys Travelling Road Show; I want to be Brienne of Tarth when I grow up; Arya Stark is my spirit animal; direwolves make the best pets; R + L = J; SANSA FINALLY; f*ck the Lannisters, except for Tyrion, he’s cool; The North remembers; I wish the Khaleesi would DO SOMETHING but I appreciate that she is learning about governance from the ground up; I haven’t read the books but it doesn’t matter because this is a TV show and it should work on its own; I have read the Wiki Full Story
A new Game Of Thrones trailer was released this week ahead of the season 5 premiere in April. The star of the preview: Dragons. BIG DRAGONS. Those teenagers are, like, fully challenging adulthood now. Do dragons have sex? I just googled this question and spent more time than I ever imagined I would reading about dragon porn. Full Story
