Tyrion Stands Trial for Being Awesome on Game of Thrones

For All My Game of Thrones Fans . . .

Deepak verma

Although the pieces move forward slightly for Daenerys, Stannis and Theon this week, the episode is really about one thing, and one thing only: Peter Dinklage absolutely killing it as Tyrion Lannister. Seriously, how many Emmys does this guy have? Just one? In my perfect world he’d have as many stat

Game of Thrones Spoilers: 6 Questions We Want Answered from the Breaker of Chains

Metro

WARNING: This article contains Game of Thrones spoilers for season 4, episode 3.

Game of Thrones episode 3 landed last night with perhaps the most inappropriate sex scene in all of TV history.

We got to meet the new king, we got an idea of who was involved in the death of the last one, and we got the answer to the age old riddle ‘how many naked people can you fit in a Dornishman’s bed?’ But as always, some questions remained unanswered:

Could Jamie and Cersei be any grosser?

It’s already pretty sick that brother and sister have sex and have children together… but do they really have to have sex up against the recently deceased body of their eldest son? Cersei sort of resists, so it is essentially the attempted rape of your sister up against your dead child…

Game of Thrones - The Red Viper Pedro Pascal The Red Viper and his paramore Ellaria Sand are already making waves in King’s Landing (Picture: HBO)

Game Of Thrones star Pedro Pascal has admitted he was ‘really excited and a little intimidated’ having landed the part of Oberyn Martell, the sexiest man in Westeros since Robb Stark. 

Explaing the exciting aspects to his character – also known as The Red Viper – he said: ‘You get to have swag, you get to enter a room with confidence, sort of like own every space that you’re a part and to play somebody who enjoys life to that degree.

‘I think his sexiness is just attached to the fact that he plays by his own rules, so if in the middle of a work day somebody sexy comes along and he wants to do something about it, he will do something about it.’

Game of Thrones season four, episode one – Two Swords: The best bits you might have missed

Spoiler Alert for “Game of Thrones” fans who missed last night’s episode!

Metro

All men must die, but hopefully not today, now that Game of Thrones is back.

Whether you risked a tired morning by staying up to watch the 2am simulcast, or more sensibly tuned into Sky Atlantic tonight, the season 4 opener was probably the best series premiere since the pilot.

Aside from the foreboding ‘cold open’ as Tywin Lannister had blades forged from Valyrian steel, here’s our favourite moments from Two Swords.

1. Oberyn’s entrance

The prince of Dorne hasn’t travelled to King’s Landing to pay respects at Joffrey’s wedding – he came to play.

Oberyn, or The Red Viper, presides over the first slice of ‘sexposition’ of the series, ruthlessly deals with some insolent Lannisters and then fairly explicitly lets Tyrion know that his family have got some pay back on the way.

Full credit to Pedro Pascal for bringing the character to life with so much swagger.

2. Can’t…
