It's said that every man wants to be a hero. Jon Snow got his chance last night. With Ygritte, Tormund, Orell and other wildlings, Snow takes on a seemingly impossible feat: Scaling the 700-foot wall that separates the so-called free people from their warmer foes in the south. They're fleeing from The Others (Whitewalkers) and they're likely to  war against the men of the Night's Watch. But first, they've got to get up that huge, icy monstrosity. As expected, this is no easy task.

With a thrust of Longclaw, Jon Snow ran his giant sword through the head of a mutineer at Craster's Keep Sunday - giving a gory victory to the Night's Watch and unwittingly saving his little brother Bran Stark and the Reeds. But Jon (Kit Harrington) did more than just save his kid brother and burn down a house of horrors. His closing scene saved what was otherwise the weakest episode of the fourth season of HBO's "Game of Thrones. " Most of “First of His Name” meandered through various plotlines with little action or storyline advancement.

Irish actor Aidan Gillen plays Petyr Baelish, a sometimes villainous schemer nicknamed Littlefinger, on HBO's "Game of Thrones. " Once humiliated in a duel with Lord Brandon Stark for the hand of Lady Catelyn Tully, Baelish now seeks out Catelyn's naive daughter Sansa and nephew, Robin Arryn. Rising from obscurity to become the master of coin on the king's Small Council, he has since been given a castle and named Lord of Harrenhal. Baltimoreans might best remember Gillen, 45, from his role as Mayor Tommy Carcetti on "The Wire.

First off, let's just get this out of the way: This has been the most consistently excellent season of "Game of Thrones" yet. Every episode has been strong, and the season has - somewhat amazingly - avoided the obvious issues with transforming a tremendously complex set of fantasy novels into a television show. (Earlier seasons, while also quite good, have at times gotten lost in the show's endless maze of characters and incremental plot advancements.)  Second: Damn, that was a gruesome way to die. "The Mountain and the Viper" ended with the Red Viper's head smashed, the Mountain stabbed multiple times, and Tyrion Lannister sentenced to death.

Remember when Daenerys Targaryen was just a little girl afraid of her older (loser) brother?  My, how times have changed.  In  “Valar Dohaeris,” the Season 3 premiere of HBO's “Game of Thrones,” Daenerys is looking more and more like the queen ascendant. I view this as a very good development, because (aside from Arya Stark and possibly Tyrion Lannister) the fair-haired Targaryen girl is my favorite character in “A Song of Ice and Fire,” the George R.R. Martin books on which the TV show is based.

English actor Christopher “Kit” Harington, 25, has gone from a virtual unknown to international heartthrob in the course of a year, due to his role as Jon Snow on the HBO hit show “Game of Thrones.” In this Q&A, he talks about power, the rain in Northern Ireland, and how he dislikes the show being called “The Sopranos of Middle Earth.” Had you read the books before you were cast in the show? I hadn't read the books. I got this pilot, though, and I read it. I knew it was HBO, so I knew it would be of a certain quality.

"It is better to be cruel than weak. " - Theon Greyjoy Whoa. Did Theon Greyjoy really just kill Bran and Rickon Stark?! Moreover: Why is this show so insanely cruel to its only honorable family? The seventh episode in the second season of"Game of Thrones"ended with Greyjoy's soliders hanging the tarred bodies of two young boys, leading the people of Winterfell (and viewers) to presume that he had killed Bran and Rickon (who I believe are only 9 and 4 years old, respectively)
