Maisie Williams, Game of Thrones
The Game of Thrones players better not underestimate Arya.
On Sunday's episode, the youngest Stark daughter proved that even a war prisoner turned cupbearer could make moves in the games. Her quick thinking definitely got her ahead. Who else triumphed? Who crashed and burned? TVGuide.com broke down the power shifts in "The Prince of Winterfell"...

Lady Catelyn is just as noble and upstanding as her late husband Ned Stark. And we all know how that ended.
On Sunday's Game of Thrones, Catelyn continues to be torn between her wartime duties to the King in the North, her son Robb (Richard Madden), and being separated from her four younger children. "Robb is the only one that she has any sort of communication with at this time, and she doesn't know where the others are," Michelle Fairley, who plays Catelyn, tells TVGuide.com. "Her whole drive for the second season is to...
"You know nothing, Jon Snow," the wilding Ygritte tells the bastard son of Ned Stark on Game of Thrones.
She's right. The young man has led a relatively sheltered life up to now, but on Sunday's episode (9/8c, HBO), he'll get some hard lessons knocked into his naturally curly head by Ygritte's wilding friends. "Now the tables are turned, you see. She's no longer his prisoner," Rose Leslie, who plays Ygritte, tells TVGuide.com. "I'm very, very happy that the power has shifted back to me.
Emilia Clarke, Game of Thrones
Poor khaleesi. Will she ever get back to Westeros to rule the seven kingdoms?
On Sunday's Game of Thrones, Daenerys suffered a major setback that could hurt her bid to win back the Iron Throne. But is she the only one who faltered? Who prevailed? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "The Old Gods and the New":
Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams: Arya becomes a bit psychotic
Theon Greyjoy (Alfie Allen): In order to...
Joe Dempsie says he was destined to play a bastard on Game of Thrones.
The British actor had initially auditioned for the part of Ned Stark's illegitimate son Jon Snow (a part that eventually went to Kit Harington) and then even tried out to play one of Jon's pals at The Wall, but didn't score either role. Thrones producers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss were determined to work with Dempsie, however, and eventually cast him as Gendry the blacksmith's apprentice, the only one of King Robert's byblows to survive Joffrey's bastard massacre in the Season 2 premiere of Game of Thrones, which airs its third episode Sunday (9/8c, HBO).
Game of Thrones has been renewed for a third season, HBO announced Tuesday.
"Series creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss raised our expectations for the second season — and then surpassed them," Michael Lombardo, HBO's programming president, said in a statement. "We are thrilled by all the viewer and media support we've received for the series, and can't wait to see what Dan and David have in store for next season."
On Sunday's Game of Thrones, poor Theon Greyjoy found himself not only humbled, but also humiliated in a really icky way.
The prodigal son returned to the Iron Islands but found that even though the Greyjoys' sigil is a kraken, he was not greeted with open arms, tentacled or otherwise. In fact, Theon's every misstep cost him some influence in the War of Five Kings. Who else faltered? Who prevailed? Who should just give up and join Ser Dontos as a jester?

Jon Snow may have given up many things -- contact with his family, the love of a good woman, a tan -- but at least he has his long, wavy hair to keep him warm.
With one season of HBO's Game of Thrones under his Night's Watch belt, Kit Harington has settled into playing the heroic bastard who's taken strict vows to defend The Wall from various northern threats for Season 2. And although he's pondered what's going on inside his character's head, the British actor doesn't quite understand what the interest is with what's growing on his head.

"Power is power," the Queen Regent Cersei told a chastened Littlefinger in the long-awaited Game of Thrones Season 2 premiere.
It's a lesson that the Lannister lady has passed down to her son. In Sunday's episode, both Cersei and Joffrey flex their monarchy muscles among their courtiers, but now that Westeros is embroiled in a civil war among more than one self-styled king, it remains to be seen who actually wields the most influence. Who made a play for power? Who succeeded? Who failed? Who just embarrassed him/herself? TVGuide.com breaks down the power shifts in "The North Remembers":
