Now that 'Game of Thrones' season 4 has calmed down a bit from the Purple Wedding, gears will shift as this Sunday's "Oathkeeper" sees Jaime and Brienne hanging out once more, while Jon Snow gets back to business at Castle Black. The full set of photos from this Sunday's installment have arrived, so what oaths will be kept, and who's Hodor Hodor-ing in the latest 'Game of Thrones'?
Game of Thrones
HBO has long been a thorn in the side of streaming media enthusiasts, only licensing its content to be accessed through HBO GO, unlike the Netflix and Amazon Prime models that have become so commonplace in recent years. Now, the pay-cable network struck a surprising Amazon Prime deal to deliver streams of a variety of shows past and present, but don't expect to start that 'Game of Thrones' marathon just yet.
'Game of Thrones' season 4 has plenty on its plate for the moment with the recent controversy surrounding Sunday's "Breaker of Chains," but things understandably won't get any easier as the HBO fantasy drama heads into May, placing plenty of new dangers onto the characters of George R.R. Martin's literary world. The full set of May episode synopses have arrived, and it looks like Tyrion gets hit hardest of all in the coming season!
HBO's 'Game of Thrones' is no stranger to controversy and questionable content, though the talk surrounding a rape scene between Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey) from Sunday's latest "Breaker of Chains" drew near-unilateral fire. Now, series creator George R.R. Martin stepped in to comment on the controversy of a scene somewhat altered from its presence in the books.
Much discussion has been sparked today following an eyebrow-raising sex scene (to say the least) in last night's episode of 'Game of Thrones'. In "Breaker of Chains," incestuous and morally corrupt siblings Jaime and Cersei Lannister do what incestuous and morally corrupt siblings do best, but there was something very different about the dynamic between the two this time around: namely, it played out as a borderline rape (watch the scene in question here). But, things are much more complex than that in 'Game of Thrones,' particularly between these two characters. Given the world's proclivity for the graphic exploitation of women, the scene is definitely scandalous.
‘Game of Thrones’ season 4 conjures its third episode of the season, “Breaker of Chains,” as Kings' Landing deals with the aftermath of the so-called "Purple Wedding," while Jon Snow comes to a grave realization about the Wildlings, and Daenerys sets her sights on Mereen.
Last week's ‘Game of Thrones’ season premiere “The Lion and the Rose” saw the royal wedding of Joffrey and Margaery Tyrell going predictably awry, while Tyrion made a heartbreaking sacrifice, and Ramsay Bolton got a new mission from his father. So, what does the latest installment of season 4 bring?
Read on for your in-depth recap of everything you need to know about ‘Game of Thrones’ season 4, episode 3, “Breaker of Chains!”
'Game of Thrones' jumped through time a bit in its fourth season premiere "Two Swords" to the point where Daenerys' dragons have grown big enough to pick off sheep, but if George R.R. Martin has anything to say about it, the winged fire-breathers will be half the size of Winterfell by the time the series ends. See for yourself, with Martin-approved artwork of full-grown 'Game of Thrones' dragons!
This past Sunday's 'Game of Thrones' installment, "The Lion and the Rose," gave us yet another wedding to remember, but that doesn't mean season 4 will slow down any by this coming weekend's "Breaker of Chains." Dany and her dragons will take on the slave city of Mereen, while Kings' Landing deals with the aftermath of You Know Who's death, and we've got the first chain-breaking photos!
