Game of Thrones Season 2: The Men (and One Woman) Who Would Be King

Jack Gleeson, Emilia Clarke, Richard Madden

The Iron Throne may be made of swords, but that isn't a deterrent for the many people who want to sit upon it.

Following the death of King Robert Baratheon, Westeros has been thrown into turmoil. As the second season of Game of Thrones kicks off Sunday (9/8c, HBO), Robert's son Joffrey holds dominion in King's Landing, but not without rumblings from the surrounding Seven Kingdoms. Civil war has broken out, and while some men feel they have a better claim to the throne, others want supremacy over their own carved-out piece of turf.

Andrew Lincoln

Producers of serialized dramas hate spoilers and famously put cast and crew on lockdown to keep juicy plot points under wraps. But how do you avoid spoilers when your hit show — like Pretty Little Liars, Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead, The Vampire Diaries, Dexter, True Blood and The Secret Circle, all known for shocking twists — is based on a series of books? Your options: either mislead viewers, change up the story just a bit or take... read more

On the Set: Game of Thrones Roars Back for a Bloody Season 2

Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage and Kit Harington

It's late October and rain is pelting the windows of a small Belfast bar. Peter Dinklage is sharing a drink with his Game of Thrones costars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and Kit Harington. Dinklage could use the drink. He's just come from shooting an emotional scene for Episode 8 in which his character, clever imp Tyrion Lannister, bursts into his chamber calling out for the sequestered prostitute and love-of-his-life, Shae. He doesn't see her and the thought of her possible fate shakes him to the core. His eyes search the room. His voice quavers.

It's easy to see why Dinklage won an Emmy — one of many awards snagged by the HBO drama during its freshman year...

Ask Matt: Justified, The Killing, Hunger Games (on TV?), Smash, and More

Send questions to askmatt@tvguidemagazine.com and follow me on Twitter!

Question: I'm really surprised by the lack of comment (here and elsewhere) on this season of Justified. It had a lot to live up to after that near-perfect second season and (in my opinion) has been maintaining the standard extremely well. I haven't enjoyed TV-show dialogue this much since The West Wing went off the air. read more

Ask Matt: Once Upon a Time, Pilot Season, Luck and HBO, Revenge and More

Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin

Question: I've been watching Once Upon A Time from the beginning, and I thought by now, we'd start to see some real movement towards the present-day fairy-tale folks realizing that something was amiss. But it seems to be dragging and dragging, and while the "fairy tale" portions are fun to watch, there's nothing there that gives one hope that finally, someone other than Henry knows something's amiss. It's getting boring. Any tidbits as to when that ...
