‘Game of Thrones’ season 3 conjures its tenth and final episode of the season “Mhysa,” as Kings' Landing greets the aftermath of the Red Wedding, Bran makes his way north with the help of a mutual friend, Davos defies Stannis once again, and Daenerys awaits her reception at the conquered city of Yunkai.
Previous ‘Game of Thrones’ episode “The Rains of Castamere” saw Jon’s true loyalties exposed, Daenerys’ men laying siege to Yunkai, and Robb and Catelyn's fates at Edmure’s wedding to Roslin Frey took a horribly red turn, so what will the finale bring?

Weeks ago we heard the unusual if exciting news that 'Game of Thrones' showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss had penned one of the upcoming episodes for 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia' season 9, inviting a host of comparisons as to how the Paddy's Pub gang might tackle the world of Westeros. Now, series star Charlie Day has gone on record with the episode's plot, but is it the 'Game of Thrones' parody we'd hoped?
At long last, this coming Sunday will see HBO's 'Game of Thrones' season 3 come to an ultimate end, picking up after the bloody carnage of last week's Red Wedding nail-biter "The Rains of Castamere."

'Game of Thrones' creator George R.R. Martin's infamous "Red Wedding" chapter has been available to read in 'A Storm of Swords' for the better part of 13 years now, but only recently have more casual fans of the HBO series adaptation been aware of the bloody massacre from Sunday's "The Rains of Castamere."

After years of supporting performances and failed TV shows, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau is finally breaking out.

In the latest episode of 'Game of Thrones,' Robb Stark's rebellion was put to a sudden and bloody end at the hands of the spiteful Walder Frey, the traitorous Roose Bolton and the crafty Lannister family. "The Red Wedding" saw Robb's pregnant wife stabbed to death and the King in the North shot full of arrows before being stabbed in the heart. However, the real kicker was the death of Robb's mother Catelyn, who had her throat cut after killing Frey's young wife.
It's the kind of scene you never forget, an event that will radically change the make-up of 'Game of Thrones' forever. There won't be a more memorable set of character deaths in 2013. How could someone top that?
While we've attempted no short supply of ice cream and kittens to bring our mood up from 'Game of Thrones' Sunday bloodbath "The Rains of Castamere," our appreciation for the scene's execution (no pun intended) has not abated.
