Game of Thrones - Kit Harington as Jon Snow

Early in the first season of Game of Thrones, Ned Stark promises to tell his illegitimate son Jon Snow about his mother the next time they meet. Unfortunately, foolish honorable Ned gets his head chopped off before he ever meets Jon again. Four seasons later, Jon (and the entire GOT fandom) is still waiting to find out the true identity of his mother.

But last night’s episode may finally have offered the key to the mystery. While “Sons of the Harpy” doesn’t confirm the mystery woman’s identity outright, it’s full of clues pointing toward the validity of one very popular fan theory. Let’s discuss what the episode suggested about the Jon Snow mother mystery after the jump. (Note: Game of Thrones spoilers follow.) Read More »

Game of Thrones Season 5 header

We helped you brush up on your recent Westerosi history with our general recap of Season 4. Now it’s time to consider where Game of Thrones is headed in Season 5. Season 4 ended with some major shakeups to the status quo, and knowing this show things will only continue to spin out of control for the next ten episodes.

Which means, really, that trying to predict this show is a fool’s errand. Author George R.R. Martin and showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss delight in pulling the rug out from under our feet, and we love them for it. But we are masochists, and so we’ve pieced together a few ideas about where we might be going next — including a power ranking of the major players going into the next season.

Game of Thrones Season 4 - Arya (Maisie Williams)

Even by the standards of serialized prestige drama, Game of Thrones can be damn hard to keep track of. There are literally dozens of characters, spread over an entire continent’s worth of locations, and in any given episode you’ll find them setting up plans and falling into traps, forming new bonds and breaking old ones.

Nor does it help matters that there are about ten months between seasons, giving fans plenty of time to forget the finer details of this sick, sad world. Sure, you could brush up on your Westerosi history by revisiting the entire fourth season on Blu-ray — but at around 10 hours, that’s a pretty daunting proposition.

That’s where we come in. We’ve got everything you need to remember about where all your favorite characters left off in Season 4, whether it’s Bran Stark in the chilly North or Daenerys Targaryen in the temperate South. Hit the jump for your Game of Thrones Season 4 catchup. Read More »

Jon Snow dinner party

Game of ThronesJon Snow has plenty of good qualities. He’s clever and strong, loyal and courageous to a fault. And even his less pleasant traits make sense in context. You’d be a wet blanket, too, if all of your loved ones were dead and ice zombies were coming for everyone else.

All in all, his intense personality makes him pretty well suited for his current job as a brother of the Night’s Watch. But as Seth Meyers learns to his chagrin in this hilarious clip from Late Night, it also makes Jon a pretty terrible dinner party guest. Watch the Jon Snow dinner party sketch after the jump.
