Game of Thrones: Who Should Sit on the Iron Throne? Vote!

Emilia Clarke

After Game of Thrones' recent Red Wedding massacre, competition for the Iron Throne just got fiercer.

Martin, who wrote the books on which the HBO series is based, truly knows which of his characters, if any, will indeed sit upon that bloody, uncomfortable throne when his seven-book series is completed. But until then, we can catch the season finale Sunday (9/8c, HBO) and debate the leadership potential of who's left alive (RIP, Robb Stark!).

Game of Thrones Power Shift: Brienne Bears with Jaime; Theon Gets Cuts Cut Off

Gwendoline Christie

Game of Thrones is usually all about the lions (Lannisters) annoying the wolves (Starks), but this time, a different furry animal joined the fray.

Game of Thrones' Gwendoline Christie: Brienne Thinks Jaime Is Scum

Gwendoline Christie

What if the genders in Beauty and the Beast were reversed?

That's the spin author George R.R. Martin put on handsome Jaime "The Kingslayer" Lannister (Nicolaj Coster-Waldau) and lumbering female knight Brienne of Tarth (Gwendoline Christie) in the books that inspired HBO's hit fantasy series Game of Thrones (airing Sundays at 9/8c).
