Somehow, mysteriously, it is Thursday again. We hope you've got your towel... argh! What is this? Talk Like a Pirate Day? Where's the rum?


Game of Thrones The-Climb

A running joke on our 'Game of Thrones' after-show, 'Cooking With Thrones' was that no one actually knew the names of any of the characters on the show. Loras was "Gay Knight Guy," Cersei was "Queen Having Creepy Relationship With Her Brother," and Tyrion was "Peter Dinklage." Well worry no more, easily confused Thronies! We've got a clickable infographic for you all that boils down not just who the characters are, but also their houses, their relationships to each other, AND where they are at the end of Season 3.

Spoilers, naturally, but if you're all caught up, then it's time to stop calling Rickon by his real name, and not, "Little Stark Brother I Keep Forgetting About":

Not Literally -- a performing group famous for their "Doctor Who" and "Harry Potter" music and comedy sketches -- just released their brand spankin' new "Game of Thrones" parody, and it is brutal(ly awesome). Based on Gotye's single "Somebody I Used to Know" and the tears of every fangirl EVERYWHERE, performers Ginny and Dana reenact all the major character deaths in "Game of Thrones" Season 1:



Put down your roasted aurochs, 'Game of Thrones' fans, because not only do we finally have a release date for the Third Season of HBO's hit show on Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Download... But also, for the first time, YOU get to decide what the box art should look like!

Okay, so you might have to wait longer to actually snag the set, than vote on its look: Game of Thrones®: The Complete Third Season will hit stores everywhere sporting the above dragon-shadow box on February 18th, 2014. Which is sad, because we really wanted to celebrate Valentine's Day by just watching Theon's arc again, and again, and again. But starting right now, you can head over to Game of Thrones' Facebook page to vote for the Best Buy Exclusive box art.

Oh, you want a sneak peak at what it might look like, you say? Here you go: Read More...

Eddard Stark wonders what he should be doing now that he knows Cersei Lannister's dirty little secret in "Game of Thrones" #14. If Eddard continues to withhold the truth any longer, he risks putting the lives of his two innocent daughters in danger. Eddard is about to learn that when you play the game of thrones, there is no middle ground; you either win or you end up dead.

(Spoilers ahead!)



You'll have to wait until a little later in the week for a Cooking With Thrones style recap of this week's Game of Thrones episode "Kissed By Fire." But while we were out in Chicago for C2E2, we had the chance to sit down with the Old Bear himself, James Cosmo, and chat about his departure from the show - as well as eating Reindeer poop smoked trout for this special report:
