Watercooler: Game of Thrones' Crowning Moment

Peter Dinklage

They say nothing gold can stay, but Viserys Targaryen's molten demise is gonna stick in our minds for a long time.

Last night, the gloriously gory Game of Thrones once again proved that we should completely expect major players to perish without warning (for the unspoiled among us who haven't read the books, that is) by dispensing with the whiny white-blonde Beggar King. And not with just some common sword slice or a been-there-done-that beheading. Nope, the incestuous and exiled heir was, well, gold-plated to death.

Matt's TV Week in Review

Julianna Margulies, Josh Charles

Welcome to the season finale/Upfront edition of our Week in Review, recapping one of the busiest weeks of any TV year. Every day a different splashy song and dance (in some cases, literally) heralding the new shows that are going to save network TV, while at night the season-ending sweeps frenzy means potentially game-changing moments on show after show. The irony is that Upfront week is also a social week, with parties and other commitments keeping a loyal viewer away from the TV for too many precious hours. Still, I managed to get through much of my playlist, so here goes.

Game of Thrones Postmortem: Harry Lloyd on Viserys' Golden Crown

Harry Lloyd

Game of Thrones has faithfully added to its body count ever since premiering in April with several beheadings, but Sunday's episode featured what Harry Lloyd calls the "best death ever."

Spoiler alert! If you haven't watched Episode 6, "A Golden Crown," yet, you're really doing yourself a disservice if you continue reading.

Game of Thrones: How to Speak (and Curse!) Like the Dothraki

Jason Momoa and Emilia Clarke

Athchomar chomakaan, khal vezhven! (Welcome, great khal!)

After last week's Game of Thrones stayed firmly in Westeros, Sunday's episode (airing at 9/8c on HBO) returns to the land of the Dothraki, those nomadic warriors across the Narrow Sea who value a good piece of horseflesh for both riding and eating.

But we're not here to discuss Dothraki livestock recipes, as delicious as they may be. Instead, we shall delve into their language, a liquid-sounding tongue inspired by the limited Dothraki vocabulary, as seen in George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels on which Thrones is based. Executive producers D.B. Weiss and David Benioff, with the help of the Language Creation Society's mononymous Sai, selected David J. Peterson to create and expand the Dothraki language, which now stands at 2,763 words at the last count, for the HBO series.

Simon Baker, Justin Chambers, Natan Fillion

Every week, editors Adam Bryant and Natalie Abrams satisfy your need for TV scoop. Please send all questions to mega_scoop@tvguide.com.

Are The Mentalist writers just messing with us or are we really going to see Red John? — Evan
ADAM:
You are definitely going to see him — and you're not going to believe who they got to play him! This heavyweight actor is someone incredibly familiar to TV audiences. The real mystery, however, is how Jane will react when confronted with his nemesis. "This show does ask the question: Can this funny, Cary Grant-like character kill someone like he's always sworn to do?" executive producer Ashley Gable says. "I think fans will be pleased with the way it plays out."

What can you tell us about the season finale of Grey's Anatomy? — Katie
NATALIE:
Alex's decision to reveal that Meredith tampered with the Alzheimer's clinical trial is going to... read more

Houses Collide: Game of Thrones Discussion — Tyrion's Brutality and Wait, Renly Is Gay?

Peter Dinklage

Now that we're halfway into the Game of Thrones season, the action has really become meaty (much like the roast venison that graces King Robert's table). In Sunday's episode, everyone gets in on the killing (even The Imp!) and there's so much intrigue to be had, the action actually stayed in Westeros the entire time. To balance out the multiple deaths and brutality, we got a whimsical helping of grotesquery thanks to original scenes written specifically for the HBO series. Shall we delve into "The Wolf and the Lion"?

Houses Collide: A Weekly Game of Thrones Discussion — Who Is Theon Greyjoy?

Alfie Allen

Wouldn't it be nice if these Game of Thrones characters had "Hello, My Name Is" badges? It would certainly cut down on the confusion of who's who so we could focus on the confusion of what the hell is going on. In this week's discussion, we try to puzzle out some of the supporting characters like Theon Greyjoy, Old Nan, The Hound and the yet unseen redheaded Roz.

Game of Thrones' Harry Lloyd: Viserys' Wig Is the Secret to Waking the Dragon

Harry Lloyd

Like any self-respecting narcissist, Game of Thrones' Viserys Targaryen has a colorful and overinflated way of speaking about himself, uttering lines like, "You don't want to wake the dragon!"

On Sunday's episode (9/8c on HBO), Viserys once again seizes every opportunity to promote himself -- or better yet -- slap someone down as he does to one "pretty little idiot." It's dialogue like this that had Robin Hood actor Harry Lloyd relishing each script and wondering what his megalomaniacal character would say next. "It's brilliant," he tells TVGuide.com. "I get this slow, goofy smile as I turn the pages."
