True Blood, Anna Paquin
True Blood's back — and creepier than ever!
After last week's debut of the first three minutes, which saw Sookie (Anna Paquin) arrive in the mysterious world of fairies, the former Merlotte's waitress is becoming aware that this magical land isn't all perfection and glowing fruit. There's evil afoot — but that's just another day for Sookie Stackhouse, right?
HBO releases True Blood Season 4 posters
Check out the first six minutes of the new season, premiering June 26 at 9/8c on HBO:
With only two episodes of Game of Thrones to go, the action really came to a head with the absence of The Hand (see what we did there?) on Sunday's episode. Yes, winter is coming, but the battle has already begun at King's Landing. Who will survive? Let's take a look at "The Pointy End" for clues.
TVGuide.com's Hanh Nguyen is an avid scripted-TV watcher, a horror-avoider and someone who's read George R. R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire book series, on which HBO's Game of Thrones is based. Colleague Rich Juzwiak rarely watches scripted TV, is a gorehound and became alerted to Martin's existence just recently, as he started researching this new swords-and-sandals (well, boots) series. He knows nothing of these sorcerers (if that is indeed what they are), while Hanh is something of an expert (read: fantasy/sci-fi nerd). Each week, he'll try to make sense of this crazy new show by enlisting Hanh's expertise. It may turn out to be a test of tolerance: in this case, the Games begin after the TV is off.
Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams
The child characters on Game of Thrones have had their share of troubles and heartache, but on Sunday's episode, titled "The Pointy End," Arya is the first of Ned Stark's children to show how to survive the deadly game the adults are playing.
Spoilers! If you haven't watched Episode 8, "The Pointy End," yet, it's best not to read further.
At only 11 years old, Arya (Maisie Williams) is forced to kill a stable boy when she discovers that the Red Keep is now swarming with enemies following her father's capture. "It was really stressful," Williams tells TVGuide.com. "But it was a big scene to shoot because it was Arya's first kill, the first of many [to come]."
Game of Thrones, Maisie Williams
Living in the fantasy world of HBO's Game of Thrones can be brutal, especially on the children.
Just ask newcomer Maisie Williams who plays 11-year-old Arya Stark. It's not easy being a Stark family member these days. In the season premiere, Arya's younger brother Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) witnessed his first beheading and later took a crippling tumble out of a tower window.
Entourage star Kevin Connolly will step behind the camera to direct the HBO series' penultimate episode, the network confirms.
The 37-year-old actor, who plays Vince's best friend and manager, Eric, will direct the seventh episode of Entourage's eighth and final season. The episode is set to air on...
The Game becomes one of choosing between effective foreshadowing.
Spoiler alert: If you haven't watched the seventh episode, "You Win or You Die," yet, it's best that you turn back now.
Jason Momoa can't wait for fans to hear what Khal Drogo will say next, especially following last week's shocking Game of Thrones conclusion, in which he gave his brother-in-law Viserys a "golden crown" of molten death.
In Sunday's episode, "You Win or You Die" (airing 9/8c on HBO), an enraged Drogo delivers a lengthy speech after his wife Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) is threatened. It not only reveals his martial side, but also shows that the previously quiet leader of the nomadic Dothraki can string together more than a couple words.
HBO has released a trio of differently hued posters for the upcoming season of True Blood, premiering Sunday, June 26 at 9/8c. The season's tagline: "Show your true colors"...
