    Last week's Game of Thrones season 4 episode, "Breaker of Chains," was very controversial due to one, er, shall we say very naughty scene. A fan favorite, Jaime Lannister, may have tainted his image for a long time to come, though he may try to redeem himself even more in this Sunday's episode called "Oathkeeper."

    After what's been a heart-pumping three episodes in season 4, hopefully the momentum won't let up as we get into the middle of the show's 2014 run. Tyrion Lannister is on trial for what happened at the Purple Wedding, Daenerys Targaryen is making a stand at Meereen, Bran Stark is trying to figure out how to "see," there's a looming threat beyond the North, Sansa Stark has finally escaped, Arya Stark is stuck with The Hound ... there is just so much going on!

    SPOILERS are likely ahead. If you haven't seen anything, stop reading! And if you're not watching, more's the pity, as this amazing show is really the only thing giving my life meaning right about now.

    Now that the dust has settled after the premiere of "Breaker of Chains" -- everyone wants to talk about that scene. Game of Thrones has been known for, shall we say, upping the ante on scenes from the original source material that were already insanely bloody or mind-blowing or disturbing, and last week was no exception. It seems HBO at times approaches the books' most anticipated scenes with a "What the hell! Let's make it crazy!" attitude.

    Case in point: The Red Wedding, Theon's torture, and the scene last week between Jaime and Cersei. In order not to give too much away, I'll put in a SPOILERS WARNING right here. If you haven't watched the show (really?) and don't want to know anything about these aforementioned scenes, please move on to something else and let the nerds take over, thanks.

    After the insane climax of "The Lion and the Rose," in which a main character met an untimely yet awesome end, it has seemed impossible that Game of Thrones season 4 could possibly keep up the momentum with "Breaker of Chains." We're only three episodes in and it already seems like so damn much has happened.

    A poor young girl's already gotten eaten by dogs for Pete's sake.

    Of course, after such an incredible finale to the Purple Wedding, all of the characters who attended -- and there were a lot of them -- had to deal with the fallout. Will whoever actually did it pay for their crime? Who is left to fight for the Iron Throne in this always increasingly deadly game? Has anyone learned to stop playing "The Rains of Castamere" at weddings yet?

    SPOILERS AHEAD for "Breaker of Chains." Please watch first, have a Tyrion-sized glass of wine, grab your closest wench, then come back!

    Is it really possible that we're only on episode 3 of season 4 of Game of Thrones? From the very beginning of season 4, the show has grabbed our attention in a way that it never has before. Who would have thought they'd kill off such an important main character in just the second episode?! That's right, the Purple Wedding took place on "The Lion and the Rose" last week, and it's hard to believe we still have eight episodes left to finish off what should be a truly incredible season.

    With "The Breaker of Chains," fans should expect to see the fallout of the MAJOR DEATH happened at the end of the Purple Wedding. And the episode should likely answer the all-important question of WHODUNNIT?

    I can't keep writing vaguely about this anymore. SPOILERS AHEAD, blah blah blah, spoilers ahead. Please stop reading if you want no spoilers. You should know this by now.

    Now that the dust has (sort of) settled after that INSANE, CRAZY, RIDICULOUS ending of the second episode of Game of Thrones season 4, "The Lion and the Lamb," it's time to talk spoilers. Fans who have read A Storm of Swords knew that the iconic moment was coming, but still, it was supremely satisfying and cheer-worthy to watch it go down nonetheless. It's hard to believe that something as series-changing as the Purple Wedding took place in only the second episode, but hopefully that means the rest of season 4 will be equally adrenaline-inducing.

    But the finale of the Purple Wedding left many TV viewers with one question: Who did it?! And it is a question that can be answered (thank goodness author George R. R. Martin didn't leave his fans hanging with that one).

    There are MAJOR GAME OF THRONES SPOILERS ahead. Seriously! Do NOT proceed if you want to know nothing about the Purple Wedding!

    The wedding of the season finally premiered tonight on Game of Thrones season 4 during episode 2, "The Lion and the Rose." Clearly the momentum from "Two Swords" isn't slowing down any time soon. Dubbed the "Purple Wedding" by fans, the universally despised King Joffrey gets hitched to the lovely Margaery Tyrell to form an alliance between the two powerful families.

    And it's obvious that everyone behind Game of Thrones pulled out all the stops to host the most extravagant, beautiful, colorful wedding in Westeros. Of course, the show touches on a lot of the other plot points throughout the hour, but the wedding took up a majority of it. And the ending was something fans have been waiting for years to see! So discuss it we must.

    There are MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD for "The Lion and the Rose." This isn't something you want to spoil for yourself thanks to an Internet recap. Watch it for yourself first!

    It's back, it's back, it's really, really back! Game of Thrones season 4 debuted to much fanfare and ridiculously high ratings last Sunday. "Two Swords," the season 4 premiere episode, was not to be missed, as it had everything fans had been clamoring for. And it seems like the momentum may not stop until the season finale. If we needed any more proof, it lies in the fact that the highly anticipated Purple Wedding, in an episode called "The Lion and the Rose," will be shown in episode 2! That's this Sunday, people!

    GoT fans have been geeking out about this wedding just as much as season 3's Red Wedding, and from everything we've gleaned from the insiders behind the scenes, this will be the episode to watch. And it's only the second one of the season! How crazy is that! I would say I desperately need a life but this really is all just damn too exciting.

    Arya Stark had a character-defining moment during the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones. (There are some spoilers ahead for those of you who haven't seen "Two Swords," by the way.) She slaughtered a man on her kill list, which she recites before going to sleep every night, and was able to reclaim her sword, Needle, that her brother Jon Snow lovingly gave to her before the Stark family was torn apart. Polliver had murdered her friend Lommy back in season 2, and Arya was true to her word when she promised herself to kill him. Sticking "the pointy end" through Polliver's neck made every Game of Thrones fan stand up and cheer.

    So who should be next on her "kill list"? Although those of you who have read the books know what's next for Arya, it's fun for non-spoiled people to imagine that this is just the start of a murderous spree for Arya to avenge everyone who has wronged her family.

    In light of the pomp and circumstance surrounding the premiere of season 4 of Game of Thrones, fans have even more reason to rejoice this week: HBO has renewed the show for seasons 5 and 6!

    Let the shit throwing begin!

    It's not really all that shocking. The premiere, "Two Swords," debuted to massive ratings, equaling 6.6 million viewers, which reportedly is HBO's most-watched program since The Sopranos’ series finale. Pretty crazy, right? It's tremendously fantastic news, especially since all the hard work the folks behind the show put into it is really, truly paying off.

    But you know what we have to ask, right? Can George R. R. Martin keep up and finish writing the series, or will the TV show catch up too quickly to the books?

    After what seems like an eternity, as well as the longest winter ever, the season 4 premiere of Game of Thrones, "Two Swords," is finally here! Seriously, it's finally time!! After what can only be described as an incredible season 3, featuring the highly anticipated Red Wedding, there is so much to look forward to this season as well, which many fans have spoiled for themselves by reading the books in A Song of Ice and Fire series.

    Still, the premiere does not disappoint. Not only do we get to see some of the fallout from the tragic events that took place last season, a couple of our favorite characters are actually getting a moment to shine. So let's delve back into the world of Westeros and go on a fantasy-filled journey like no other show has been able to do before.

    There are obviously major SPOILERS ahead for "Two Swords." Go watch it now and then come back!
