The Lion and the Rose
To celebrate the arrival of Game of Thrones Season 1 on 4K Ultra HD, we're offering our readers the chance to win a copy!
The power of “The Watchers On The Wall” is that, after 38 episodes of being told again and again that good people are weak because of their codes, we are finally shown hope in the most unlikely of places.
“Mockingbird” is all about unfunny jokes: lies that are told to make sense of chaos and control the actions of others. Game of Thrones is not a funny show, but this episode illustrates that it still has a use for humour.
Game of Thrones: The Exhibition returns to the Bell Lightbox for the show’s fourth season. A virtual tour of The Wall, props from the Purple Wedding, and the hidden contents of a box make Westeros feel more real than ever.
“The Laws of Gods and Men” sticks with the season’s contemplative pacing, taking inventory of its characters past deeds while demonstrating how much catharsis a well written and performed monologue can evoke.
Dork Shelf and HBO Canada want to send one lucky fan and their guest to the opening of Game of Thrones: The Exhibition on Wednesday, May 14 at the TIFF Bell Lightbox.
Tween King Tommen Baratheon may be the "First of His Name" this week, but several characters show new sides of their personalities for the first time, and multiple throwbacks to Game of Thrones’ first season rear their heads with major implications for the future.
This week’s Game of Thrones has a lot to say about the promises we make (and break) in order to assert our identities. It also has a lot to show off in terms of how babies get made.
The web of alliances at King's Landing are becoming ever more complicated; Daenerys approaches her next challenge as the eastern continent's liberator; and the viewers' ideas of who is villain and who is hero are further muddied in the most unsettling manner possible.

“The Lion and the Rose” makes it through the treacherous woods of first act exposition - in the first half, no less - and then celebrates by throwing viewers a party that no one is going to forget anytime soon.
