Game of Thrones fans can get their end-of-the-week fantasy fix by tuning in to Late Night With Jimmy Fallon tonight. In behind-the-scenes pictures from Jimmy's "Game of Desks" spoof, the late-night host is wearing his Winterfell best, and everyone from Steve Higgins to The Roots is in character. Get excited with a sneak peek of the skit before the show!
Thanks to bear battles, lost body parts, and some strange wedding arrangements, there's been plenty of shocking, unexpected drama on this season of Game of Thrones. While most of the action at King's Landing involves secrecy and threats, elsewhere we've seen violent punishments, creepy torture techniques, and some seriously impressive slave-army takeovers — and we're not even finished with the season yet. Take a look at the craziest moments of season three — so far!
It's a nice day for a white wedding on this week's episode of Game of Thrones. OK, so the bride doesn't exactly wear white, and it's not really a nice wedding in the end, but you get the idea. Sansa and Tyrion tie the knot in front of enemies, family, and some more enemies. Thankfully, there's a lot of wine to help it all go down easier.
Elsewhere, Gendry gets duped by Melisandre, Dany makes a new friend, and Sam has a moment of courage that saves three lives. I kinda missed Jon, Jaime, and Brienne this week, but with all the wedding drama, there's not time for much else. Let's break down all the biggest moments when you read more
Mindy Kaling showed up on The Office series finale last night and stopped by Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, but there was a different TV show altogether that was on her mind: Game of Thrones. Apparently Mindy is a pret-ty big fan of Jaime Lannister and gushed to Jimmy about her huge crush on the character. The best part is that Jimmy was able to pass on the result to Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, who plays Jaime on the show, and the result is pretty priceless.

Sex is alive and well in this week's episode of Game of Thrones: what kind of trouble it can get you into, what kind of blessings it can bring, and so on. While Sansa starts to have nerves about wedding and bedding Tyrion, one character on the show may be forced to change their ways when it comes to the physical act of love — forever.
It's not all bare butts and naked ladies though. Brienne and Jaime go through a trauma that draws them ever closer, Arya gets caught in another pickle, and Dany is ready to continue her freedom crusade. It's not quite as juicy as the last few episodes, but there are still some surprises. Let's break it down when you read more
With Mother's Day just around the corner, make sure you don't show up to your parents' house this Sunday empty-handed. If your mom gets her geek on, gift her with something suitable for a mother of dragons (or Whovians or Jedi padawans — she did raise you, after all).
We've got some of the geekiest gifts for Star Wars, Star Trek, Game of Thrones, and Doctor Who fanmoms, plus a special trinket for supermom mathletes.
When Zach Galifianakis hit Saturday Night Live this weekend, there were lots of cameos, including Jon Hamm and Bradley Cooper, but my favorite surprise appearance was by Game of Thrones star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, better known as Jaime Lannister. The actor showed up for the "Game of Game of Thrones" skit that featured Galifianakis in a child's dragon costume and in total awe of the star (we feel the same way!). Watch if only to hear Galifianakis call Coster-Waldau a "long-haired angel."

The title of this week's episode of Game of Thrones, "The Climb," has a dual meaning (and neither of them are related to the Miley Cyrus single). Figuratively, some continue to climb the ladder of power, as Varys and Littlefinger come face to face, and Tywin has a tête-à-tête with Lady Olenna. Literally, Jon Snow and the rest of his Wilding camp are faced with the daunting task of scaling the Wall.
The adventure ultimately brings Jon and Ygritte even closer together, but they're the only ones who are getting any action these days. Sansa is filled in on the news that she's not going to wed her top crush, Loras, and I have a feeling Shae's not going to be putting out for Tyrion anytime soon. Let's break down all the big moments we'll be talking about until the next episode when you read more
Sixty minutes every Sunday is not nearly enough to quench our thirst for the glory, gore, and dragons of HBO's Game of Thrones. For fans of the show, based on George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series, there's more House Lannister, Stark, Targaryen, Tyrell, Greyjoy, and Baratheon to be had online, where GoT enthusiasts can tune into podcasts discussing all goings-on in the worlds of Westeros and Essos.
These podcasts are a great way to get your head around all of the complicated plotting, scheming, and Iron Throne-lusting story lines both within and beyond the wall each week. From in-depth analysis of episode plotlines for book readers already familiar with the story to thorough recaps on each of the many characters for newbies, complement your weekly dose of Game of Thrones with these podcasts for every kind of Winterfella and Queen Regent.
Beheading, de-virginization, and Jaime Lannister's butt: it's an exciting episode of Game of Thrones this week! We visit with a lot of characters, most notably Jon Snow, Jaime, Arya, Robb, and Tyrion. Jaime is finally getting a little bit of a reprieve from his torture, and Jon Snow throws his Night's Watch vows to the wind. There are some loose ends from last week's episode that I'm curious about (like the aftermath of the carnage at Craster's), but I'm still satisfied and entertained by this week's events.
This season feels like it's moving along swiftly, and this week has a lot going on, with emotional moments and action scenes, as well as lots of plotting for the future. Ready to go over the things we're still thinking about after the credits? Just keep reading.
