Alfie Allen, Game of Thrones
Game of Thrones, Season 2: The Season of Theon Greyjoy continues with his latest effort to prove that he's willing to pay the iron price.
In Sunday's episode, Theon once again had to resort to murder to show those Northerners who's boss. Even we were shocked by the lengths he went to, and certainly the people of Winterfell were horrified. Who else exerted their influence? Who struggled? TVGuide.com weighs in on the power shifts in "A Man Without Honor":
Game of Thrones's Jaime Lannister may have carried on an incestuous affair with his twin sister Cersei, but it comes from a noble, if misguided, place.

Our top moments of the week:
12. Worst Side-Stepping: Who says that Teri Hatcher is estranged from her Desperate Housewives co-stars? Certainly not Eva Longoria, who, during an appearance on Late Show with David Letterman, semi-convincingly reports, "We all get along." Dave isn't buying it, of course, and presses on. "Didn't one get fired?" he asks. (We think he means Nicollette Sheridan.) "Yes, I forgot about that one," Longoria responds. "She didn't get fired. ... She died on the show!" So that's what that pesky multi-million dollar lawsuit was all about!

Daenerys can't seem to catch a break. The khaleesi (Emilia Clarke) has experienced loss after loss this season, and on Sunday's Game of Thrones, she suffers several devastating setbacks..
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...
Martin Freeman and Benedict Cumberbatch
"Brainy's the new sexy."
Didn't we always know that? But how nice to have it reconfirmed — by none other than Irene Adler (Lara Pulver), the only woman ever known to render the great and arrogant Sherlock Holmes speechless.
Game Of Thrones, Maisie Williams
Arya has acquired a taste for killing.
In the latest episode of Game of Thrones (Sundays, 9/8c, HBO), the youngest Stark daughter realizes that just by uttering a name, she can condemn a person to death at the hands of Jaqen H'ghar, a mysterious man who claims he owes her three deaths to repay her for saving his and two others' lives. And although this proxy murder is shocking, it's not the first time Arya has taken a life. Last season, the pint-sized girl impaled a stable boy with her sword in self-defense. The act serves as a rite of passage and a gateway for kills to come.

Does Castle's finale have a cliff-hanger like last year's? I'm not sure I could handle that! — Jessica
ADAM: Creator Andrew W. Marlowe hints that Beckett will be experiencing a lot of changes in the finale, and the domino effect of said changes leads to this season's climax. And while I'm pretty sure that no one's life will be hanging in the balance, Castle-Beckett fans will likely still be in for a long summer. Why? Marlowe says this finale doesn't lend itself to a large time jump between seasons. "The way we're ending this season, people will want to know what happens in the immediate aftermath," he teases.
Will the rest of the Fringe team regain their memories before the end of the season? — Larry

On Sunday's Game of Thrones, Renly, Brienne and Catelyn encounter an unexpected element that forever changes the rules of the game in the War of Five Kings.

I'll have what he's having. (Well, maybe not the divorce.)
Roger Sterling's exhilarating LSD trip on Sunday's Mad Men set the tone and raised the bar for another wacky week in the world of TV. The disorienting centerpiece of another masterful episode exploring the needs and dashed desires of its central characters, Mad Men's acid trip (played to the tune of The Beach Boys' "I Just Wasn't Made for These Times") was harrowing
