First, the bad news: The boy-king Joffrey is still alive.  Now, the good news: That was one amazing episode of television.   Written by George R.R. Martin himself (hallowed be his name) and directed by Neill Marshall, "Blackwater" used the lion's share of "Game of Thrones'" Season 2 budget on a large-scale, epic, fiery battle that showed off special effects and   action   sequences rarely seen on TV. This was television not as mere television, but as a big, blockbuster action movie.

It's just not safe to get married in Westeros these days. Ever since he ordered the beheading of the heroic Ned Stark in the first season of “Game of Thrones,” viewers have been patiently waiting for the insufferable boy-king Joffrey to die. (Preferably in as painful a manner as possible.)  Sunday night, they got their wish. Episode two of Season 4,“The Lion and the Rose,” written by George R.R. Martin himself (hallowed be his name), ends with the despicable teenage tyrant's poisoned face turning blue as blood drips from his mouth.

Sixteen-year-old Eleanor Weir held her right leg out in front of her, arched that foot and brought her toes delicately down to the floor, then back up again. She was pretending that the floor was a cat, and she was trying to pet it with her foot. "Yup, bup, bup, bup" guest teacher Gerard Charles said, counting out the beat at Towson's Carver Center for Arts & Technology. Eleanor and 27 other cat petters in training were taking an intermediate-level ballet class with Charles, the ballet master for the Joffrey Ballet.

In a way, the Joffrey Ballet's coming run at the Kennedy Center shows the popular company, now based in Chicago, doing what it does best. It offers historic repertory rejuvenated and polished, spaced out with several of the pretty, unmemorable ballets known among dance critics as Arpini -- so called because artistic director Gerald Arpino used to turn out two or three of them a season, dependable, delightful, interchangeable.So there you have the Joffrey's mixed rep program next week: "Parade" (1917)

One of Santa's helpers, a man who tilts at windmills, and Toto, too, will be part of the 2013-2014 season of the Modell Performing Arts Center at The Lyric. One of the country's most distinguished dance companies, the Joffrey Ballet, is also scheduled. Based on the hit film of the same name, "Elf" is a musical with a score by Matthew Sklar and Chad Beguelin, a book by Thomas Meehan (his credits include "Hairspray") and Bob Martin. The family show, which has been a presence at holiday time on Broadway, will play the Lyric Nov. 22 to Nov. 24. The plot follows the adventures of an orphan who winds up working with the other elves at the North Pole, figures out he's human, and heads to New York to find his father and, of course, what is invariably called the true spirit of Christmas.

Severna Park High School has let out for the day, and about 10 girls are in the school's dance studio, kicking and twirling in unison as "Santa Baby" booms through the small room. They are rehearsing for a school concert scheduled for Thursday. Senior Lindsay Moore is among them. She has been dancing since she was in preschool, and she hopes to be a Rockette some day. Recently, her ambitions took a step forward (or should that be a jete?) when she won a four-week summer scholarship to the Joffrey Ballet School in New York.

What's great about The Company is that it really is about a company. It presents the Joffrey Ballet of Chicago as a vital organism fascinating at rest, gripping in its struggles to survive and thrilling when it springs to full life on stage. Director Robert Altman (now 79), the past master of movie ensemble pieces, fictionalizes a year in the life of the Joffrey with inspirational freshness. He provides a welcome shock to a jaded moviegoer's system - a full blast of artistic oxygen. Ry (Neve Campbell)

There's a wonderful symmetry to Christmas and the arts in that each of the genres has been ceded proprietary control of at least one Yuletide blockbuster. In the literary realm, Charles Dickens comes by each and every December to tell us of Mr. Scrooge's annual rendezvous with the three spirits who transform terminal humbuggery into a life of fulfillment in just a few incandescent chapters. Musically, there is George Frederick Handel's oratorio Messiah, which imparts vintage pomp and pageantry to the Christmas season with sterling choruses such as the mighty "Hallelujah."
