In the cutthroat world of HBO’s Game of Thrones, life is hard and even the most innocent people find themselves victimized by the powers that be.

Game of Thrones season five arrives this weekend and fans couldn’t be more excited and nervous and prematurely frustrated. This is the season that promises to go beyond George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire books, spoiling future events and inventing storylines that don’t exist in the novels.

How about a sketch where Jon Snow goes to a pleasant dinner party and ruins it with his Jon Snow-ness?
With Game of Thrones returning for a fifth season of murder, sex, betrayal, and sex, we decided that we must take on a task that would make even the most powerful nobles in Westeros recall their banners. We have ranked every single remotely noteworthy character on the show from worst to best.
Because there is nothing small children still learning to read love more than ultra-violent fantasy epics, Sesame Street has created a Game of Thrones parody. And we’re not talking about a simple excuse to dress up some Muppets in medieval garb. There are some serious George R.R. Martin deep cuts in this strange little sketch, which marks the first and probably last time that Sesame Street will obliquely reference brutal massacres, beheadings, and regicide.
The imminent arrival of Game of Thrones Season 5 has literary creator George R.R. Martin racing to finish sixth novel The Winds of Winter, but TV may have placed yet another obstacle in his path.
