HBO wants to wish Dad’s everywhere a Happy Father’s Day, and also: don’t forget to tune in for the grand, sweeping season finale of Game of Thrones.
Like we really needed the reminder. As season four of the epic fantasy series wraps up, show creators Dan Weiss and David Benioff have been persistent in letting people know that this finale is the “best finale [they’ve] ever done, bar none.” In fact, the episode in question — chillingly titled “The Children” — has been submitted for two Emmy’s: Outstanding Writing for a Drama Series and Outstanding Prosthetic Makeup. Though every episode of this phenomenal season has set a new viewing record every week, “The Children” is the first ever submitted for Emmy consideration. Clearly, Weiss and Benioff are fairly confident that the cast and crew have truly outdone themselves this time. In a statement, the duo praised the hard work of everyone on set saying, “The performances from our cast, the direction from Alex Graves, the VFX work, the new cues from Ramin Djawadi – all of it came together in perhaps the finest hour we’ve produced.”
All this to say, get your Father’s Day priorities straight and be ready to tune in for the 66 minute finale, this sunday on HBO at 9pm/8c. Happy Father’s Day…Winter is Coming.

“Just days away from the actual airing of the HBO episode, Tyrion is brought to trial in this animated skit for slaying the king, but how will he defend himself when everyone he trusts already fled King’s Landing?”
Game of Thrones, episode 6: “The Laws of Gods and Men” airs this Sunday night on HBO at 9pm/8C.
Sunday night’s episode of “Game of Thrones” featured one particular scene which called into question an entire character arc and left several outraged. In the most recent episode of Game of Thrones, “Breaker of Chains,” viewers watched as, in the midst of a candlelight vigil for her son, King Joffrey Baratheon, Cersei Lannister was raped by her twin brother/lover/father of her children, Jaime Lannister. Several bloggers have taken to the internet to express their opinion about the scene, and how it deviated from the original content. Since…
If this year’s late premier date for Game of Thrones Season 4 means anything, it’s more teaser content shot just right to leave you counting down the weeks until Sunday, April 6th. HBO’s latest sneak peek at the new season for GoT was a thrilling fifteen minutes which, you guessed it, left us begging for more. Masterfully shot, the trailer (aptly titled, “Game of Thrones Season 4: Ice and Fire: A Foreshadowing”) features crew commentary as well as a twitter-fueled Q&A session with cast members.…
