Last week's Game of Thrones unleashed plenty of frozen horrors at "Hardhome," but the pendulum swung from ice to fire for "The Dance of Dragons." Not only did fire reign at Daenerys' predictably disastrous and tournament, but so too did flames bring us the series most gruesome, difficult scene to date. Our full review!

In only two weeks the world of True Detective will expand beyond flat circles to bring us a Season 2 set in modern-day California, but will the combined talents of Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams and Taylor Kitsch live up to the legend of McConaughey and Harrelson? Two new trailers firmly invite your judgement.
HBO Sports is best known for its documentaries and boxing match offerings, but the company is doing something a little different with 7 Days in Hell: it's a mockumentary about an epic tennis match between two intense rivals, played by Andy Samberg and Game of Thrones star Kit Harington. And like a good mockumentary, this one seems to mine some great comedy from its authenticity.
As has increasingly become the case with each Game of Thrones season, the HBO series’ frequent reliance on sexual violence against women dominates the conversation. This year added Sansa Stark’s plight to last year’s muddled take on Jaime and Cersei, and series creator George R.R. Martin has again come to defend the show’s inherent brutality, suggesting an egalitarian utopia would make for “a boring book.”
Pop culture’s cruel wheel of fortune will roll over the world to bring us an Entourage film in the next few days, but before that bitter end, the folks at ScreenJunkies have again plumbed the depths of TV for their latest Honest Trailer. Somehow, we imagine HBO will want to keep this one from Peter Dinklage.
Casting details of Game of Thrones Season 6 have already made their way online before the July production start, and with it locations have begun to eke out as well. First on the map, Game of Thrones will return to shoot in several Spain locations, but will the country again double for the Kingdom of Dorne?
If last night’s Game of Thrones trip to “Hardhome” proved anything, major deviations from creator George R.R. Martin’s books still carry huge payoffs. That said, Martin still misses a few characters cut from the HBO adaptation, among them a fan-favorite resurrection fans had expected in Season 4.
Game of Thrones has never lacked complaints of characters teasing the imminent White Walker invasion without ever following through, but good grief if Sunday’s installment didn’t go full zombie apocalypse on Jon Snow and the Wildlings at “Hardhome.” Our full review of the epic battle, plus Tyrion and Daenerys’ budding friendship!
Game of Thrones may have started gearing up for Season 6, but three hours still remain in Westeros yet for 2015. Get an early look at Sunday’s big meeting between Tyrion and Daenerys, as well as the final two episodes of Game of Thrones Season 5 by their full synopsis!
Game of Thrones Season 5 has only just reached the most exciting climax of its run, but given the lengthy production cycle, Season 6 has already begun casting for new roles. Check out a breakdown of who HBO is eying for Game of Thrones Season 6, and which of George R.R. Martin‘s characters they might represent!
