The Lannisters sure know how to throw a wedding.
Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Sansa's (Sophie Turner) big day included threats of rape, promises of murder and talk of impregnating the poor 14-year-old bride. This all set the stage for Tyrion to risk his life by directing one amazing zinger at Joffrey (Jack Gleeson). But first, the background.
Before being introduced to American audiences as Shae on HBO's Game of Thrones, German actress Sibel Kekilli was already a major star in Germany, having won two Lolas -- the country's highest film award.
The third season of Game of Thrones seems to be defying viewership trends that so often see cable series' ratings dip between premiere and finale. For the fourth week in a row, and the fifth time this season, the HBO drama has nabbed another ratings record.
