'Game of Thrones': When you play, you win or ...

[This post contains spoilers for the April 29 episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones," as well as the George R.R. Martin "Song of Ice and Fire" novels upon which the series is based.]

You saw the note about spoilers, right? If you haven't seen Sunday's "Game of Thrones" and don't want a big plot point given away, flee to the hills now.

OK ... now that it's just us ...

One of the catchphrases of the series is simple and direct: "When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die." Ned Stark learned it last season, and with Sunday's episode we learned (as readers of the novels know) that main characters biting the dust is sometimes the rule, not the exception.

'Game of Thrones': Melisandre 'delivers' as things get creepy

'Game of Thrones': Melisandre 'delivers' as things get creepy

[Note: This post contains spoilers for the April 22 episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones," and the George R.R. Martin "Song of Ice and Fire" novels upon which the series is based.]

Forget for a moment that on Sunday's "Game of Thrones," Peter Dinklage provided more Emmy-worthy moments as Tyrion, the black-sheep “imp” coming into his own as a power player in the cutthroat titular game.

Let's also momentarily put aside that poor Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) finally got her rag-tag band of followers out of the desert – albeit landing in the city of Qarth, where the two-legged variety of vipers appeared to be as common as the sort slithering through the sand outside.

No, the scene from Sunday's episode that’s sure to have folks talking is its final one – in which the shadowy (hooray for double entendre!) fire priestess Melisandre gets involved in the game in a big, and creepy, way.

A nasty boy king brings back 'Game of Thrones'

A nasty boy king brings back 'Game of Thrones'

Editor's Note: This post contains spoilers for the April 1 episode of HBO's "Game of Thrones," as well as season 1 of the show and the George R.R. Martin novel of the same name.

A little incest, a little bloodshed and a whole bunch of folks scheming to sit on an uncomfortable steel chair - welcome back, "Game of Thrones."

The season 2 premiere, "The North Remembers," starts and finishes by driving home a point most viewers probably were already well aware of: new King Joffrey is a rotten little bastard (literally).

The episode begins with Joffrey celebrating his "name day" (think "birthday in a place where they're not sure babies are going to live") by making his loyal subjects fight to the death for his amusement. After his servant, The Hound, tosses an opponent to his death, Joffrey decides aging, drunken Ser Dontos would be more amusing with a funnel stuffed down his throat, literally drowning in wine.
