Game of Thrones Bleeding Joffrey Candle

We’re two episodes into the final season of Game of Thrones, and the battle for Winterfell is nearly upon us. After this weekend, we’ll be halfway through the end of HBO’s fantasy series, so there’s no better time to light a candle in the show’s honor. Of course, it wouldn’t be a celebration of Game of Thrones if it didn’t come in the form of something truly cruel and twisted.

Remember when the bratty King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) was killed after being poisoned all the way back in the fourth season? He died a gruesome death with blood pouring from his eyes, nose and mouth. And now you can get your hands on the perfect candle holder that will make the wax look like it’s dripping out of Joffrey’s face. Find out where you can get it below. Read More »

Though I was excited by the earlier teaser for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones, at the risk of sounding like a swooning fangirl, I have to say that even that pales in comparison to this new trailer. This time around, it’s Lord Varys (Conleth Hill) who takes over narrating duties, explaining exactly who everyone is and what they’re doing — without actually revealing anything at all, of course. Tricky eunuch bastard. Naturally, Golden Globe and Emmy winner Peter Dinklage gets some good face time as well. Watch the video after the jump. (Warning: Spoilers for Season 1 follow.)

Now this is more like it. The first teaser we got for Season 2 of HBO’s Game of Thrones revealed absolutely nothing about the upcoming season, and though we’ve gotten some better looks since then — thanks to some behind-the-scenes production videos and a handful of set photos — it’s great to finally have a proper teaser with dramatic shots of the characters and landscapes to go with the requisite ominous voiceover.

Given that Season 2 will be based on A Clash of Kings, Book 2 of George R.R. Martin‘s A Song of Ice and Fire series, it seems entirely appropriate that the narration in this teaser comes from one of the men determined to win the Iron Throne for himself: the brittle, humorless Stannis Baratheon, played by Stephen Dillane. Watch the trailer after the jump. (Warning: Major spoilers for Season 1/Book 1 ahead.)
