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!
J.J. Abrams stopped by Conan this week to promote his new movie Star Trek Into Darkness. He also wanted to clear the air about a scene from the film that's creating controversy for briefly showing Alice Eve in her underwear. To settle the score, he brought a delete scene from the film that shows villain Benedict Cumberbatch shirtless in the shower. It's a quick look, but still pretty entertaining. Check it out:
New Girl's Jess and Nick share an obvious chemistry during the first two seasons, and fans could finally celebrate when watching the couple define their relationship in the season finale. Even when they're dating other people and insisting they're nothing more than friends, there was still plenty of will-they-won't-they tension — until, well, they did. Now that one of TV's cutest couples is officially together, take a look at the most adorable moments between Nick and Jess!

Nominations are in for the third annual Critics' Choice Television Awards! New Girl is getting a lot of love, with a nod for best comedy series, while stars Zooey Deschanel, Max Greenfield, and Jake Johnson nabbed nominations. Also earning a few nods? Breaking Bad, Parks and Recreation (Chris Pratt!), and Game of Thrones. Mad Men has been mysteriously snubbed, though Elisabeth Moss did get nominated for her role in the miniseries Top of the Lake.
The awards will be passed on June 10, but check out all the nominations after the jump.
Nashville's freshman season comes to an end this week, and if these sneak peek pictures are any indication, it's going to be a very emotional episode. Juliette must attend her mother's funeral, so it's a good thing Rayna comes to stand by her side. It makes me think back to the beginning of the series when these two women were at such odds. On a lighter note, Brad Paisley is guest starring! Check out all the pictures.
It's graduation season! While all this cap-and-gown talk makes me remember my own graduations, it also brings up vivid memories of the commencements I wish I was a part of from my favorite movies and TV shows. Then there are those groups I'd just want to hang with (I'm looking at you, Brat Pack) before its members head off to find jobs or go to college. Check out all the most memorable graduations from the big and small screens.
This week on Mad Men, Don and the cool kids in creative decide to get a little help from a "complex vitamin super dose" before a weekend of work on the Chevy account. Young-at-heart account exec Jim Cutler brings in his doctor, who proceeds to administer the upper drug into the backsides of the eager staff. The good doctor doesn't even blink twice before giving a dose to Roger Sterling, who discloses his heart condition. Although, we don't get to see what effect the drug has on Roger. I hope we find out next week.
While viewers don't explicitly know what the super dose consists of, we do see its impact. An injured Kenny Cosgrove breaks into a manic tap routine. Stan Rizzo races through the office and comes up with hundreds of "ideas." And Don Draper zooms past doors, talks a mile a minute, and becomes obsessed with coming up with something to say to his mistress, rather than focusing on the Chevy account. At least that's what it seems like he's talking about when he shares his pitch with Peggy: "Let's say I get her face to face. How do I capture her imagination?" So what is this drug that turns everyone into momentary geniuses who actually create sober gibberish? Probably amphetamines — aka speed.
If the Sterling Cooper Draper whatever-they're-called-now staff remind you of the kids in college who got hopped up on Adderall before a big deadline, it might be because they are hopped up on Adderall before a big deadline. Or something similar, at least. "Amphetamine salts combo," the technical term for what is known today as Adderall, was approved by the FDA in 1960. It then went under the name Obetrol. It and similar amphetamines, like dextroamphetamine and benzedrine, were popular at the time as diet pills, study aids, or party drugs. So it seems likely the Mad Men team would call on it increase their alertness and motivation. Other side effects include increased sex drive, which could explain Stan's come-on to Peggy and Wendy Gleason. And we saw quite a few of the negative side effects play out on Don, including fever, sweating, and insomnia.
In the 1960s, amphetamines were also used to stimulate American military men during the Vietnam War. However, they were not popular with many hippies and counterculture figures like The Beatles and Allen Ginsberg, who favored the more mellow drugs marijuana and LSD. Maybe Don Draper isn't all that cool after all.
Ben Affleck hosted this week's season finale of Saturday Night Live, but an even bigger reason to tune in was to see Stefon's final visit to "Weekend Update." Since Bill Hader is leaving the show, we had a feeling that Stefon would be spotlighted — and boy, were we right. Not only did Stefon give us one last round of New York's hottest clubs, but his ongoing flirtation with Seth Meyers finally came to fruition in a very big way. Check it out to see which guest star almost gets in the way of Seth and Stefon's love!
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
