Hopefully by now you've come to terms with what went down this past Sunday on "Game of Thrones," and not to throw salt in your open wounds, but George R. R. Martin, the sadistic man behind your sadness, went on "Conan" to laugh at you.

Ok, so it wasn't that harsh of him, but you can definitely tell that he gets a kick out of this. Can you blame him though? "A Storm of Swords," the book which serves as the basis for the third season of the show, did come out in 2000. Remember that year? It was a while ago.

Ok, so we know there's a lot going on inside you right now. These are called emotions, and they're a result of having watched last night's episode of "Game of Thrones." No, you're not alone, and we completely understand. Things did not go well for some major characters in the latest episode, and as always with "GoT," it's probably best just to talk it out.

Thankfully, the folks over MTV Geek sat down with Felicia Day a little while ago to preempt all of these shocking twists, so that when they did happen, we'd have a friendly face to tell us that we're not alone.

Check out the recap above, and let us know how you're doing. Are you sad? Surprised? Angry? Hungry? Let us know in the comments below and on Twitter, and if it's that last one, you should probably go eat a sandwich or something.

If you're still processing the weekly craziness that went down on "Game of Thrones" last night, may we suggest checking out MTV Geek's weekly dose of deliciousness "Cooking with Thrones."

On this week's episode, host Steven Smith, Chelsea Monroe-Cassel, and Joe Kelly help you digest "And Now His Watch Is Ended" and a little dish called Varys' Tea Eggs.

Plus, if you stick around until the end, you'll hear from Maisie Williams aka Arya Stark, who recalls a time on set when she didn't understand the concept of continuity and had to keep eating biscuits.

Check it all out in the latest episode of "Cooking with Thrones."

Winter has come to Manhattan. Well, actually, it never left, but bear with me here... As I was saying: Winter has come to Manhattan in the form of "Game of Thrones" The Exhibition, a touring collection of Westeros memorabilia (Ned Stark's severed head, anyone?), sponsored by HBO and Time Warner Cable. And in celebration of the exhibit's only U.S. stop, a slew of the realm's famous faces abandoned their firs and corsets to attend a special VIP opening Wednesday night in New York.

Among the dapper stars was Kit Harington, whom fans know as man-in-black Jon Snow. As we chatted about the upcoming season, Harington surprised us by revealing he didn't actually read any portions of the script in which his character didn't appear—meaning he's just as in the dark about Dany's dragons or Arya's whereabouts as we are.

"This year, I didn't read the script. I just read my portion, which may seem like lazy actor stuff, but it wasn't," he explained. "I wanted to watch the TV show fresh as a viewer would."

Game of Thrones

There's a storm of swords brewing in the Seven Kingdoms. It's just a shame that no one seems to realize that the real war lies north of Westeros.

"Game of Thrones" returns for its third season on March 31, 2013, bringing the frosty fury of winter along with it. Based on a portion of the third novel in George R.R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire" series, "A Storm of Swords," the teaser identifies what the real war humanity faces is truly all about — and it's nothing that any of our heroes, save for the men of the Night's Watch, seems to give a hoot about.

Watch the teaser below!

Game of Thrones

You thought what happened to Ned was bad? Trust me, "Game of Thrones" fans, you haven't seen anything yet — but you're about to.

Westeros.org reports that the "Thrones" casting department has put out a call for extras for a night shoot on October 12 and full availability on October 15 through 19. The extras they're seeking are male-only cellists and male and leg-only amputees. The latter group needs to be comfortable with prosthetics that will make their legs look newly severed.

Those details might sound like the par-for-the-course ugliness fans of "Thrones" have come to love and expect over the years. But "A Song of Ice and Fire" readers know better. Those readers know all too well that we're finally here; the moment we've been dreading since "Thrones" went into production.

Vague discussion of major spoilers are ahead.

Game of Thrones

Is there anguish more stinging than the gradual realization that soon you will finish every published word of "A Song of Fire and Ice" and will have to wait like everyone else for George R. R. Martin to finish the sixth book?

Yes, but it still sucks.

Rest assured, reader, that winter will soon end and that you are not alone in your desire for "The Winds of Winter." The kind fellows at Geek and Sundry (via Vulture) have turned their anxiousness into a catchy song, gently urging Martin to write faster.

"Game of Thrones" just wrapped its second season, and the war for Westeros supremacy remains as contentious as it ever was. But even though multiple kings are still vying for the crown, it could be you who sits upon the Iron Throne in the end... assuming you've got five-figures worth of extra coin lying around.

The HBO Shop is selling a life-size replica of the Iron Throne of Westeros. The thrones, which are made to order, clock in at over seven feet tall, 350 pounds, with a whopping price-tag of $30,000, plus $1,800 for shipping. Vhalar Morghulis, that's a lot of money! But what's a few silver stags when absolute power over the Seven Kingdoms can be yours?

More details past the jump!

Game of Thrones

It seems fair to say that the second season of "Game of Thrones" has included some of the best hours of television that we've seen in recent years. Sure, I may be a bit biased, but last week's "Blackwater" was one of the most action-packed episodes of TV I've ever had the pleasure to watch. All that gushing aside, even I had was taken aback by the exclusion of some major characters who, had the series followed the book to a T, should have been introduced already.

But have no fear, Jojen and Meera are here. Entertainment Weekly got their hands on a list of the new characters being introduced in season three, and the majority of the names that were missing from season two have all been added for the upcoming episodes. That means if you, like me, were squawking about the fact that the Reeds haven't met Bran Stark yet, you can rest easy.
