Good news for the fans of the “One True King”–Stannis Baratheon lives! After watching the finale of Season Five of Game of Thrones, many viewers were confused by the ambiguous ending of Stannis’ storyline. We see everything but the claimant king’s death itself–Melisandre’s sudden loss of faith, the utter destruction of his troops by an overwhelming Bolton force, and finally, Brienne’s avenging blade coming down in a killing blow–before the camera cuts away to another scene. Technically, we never see Stannis die, and many were left debating whether there was any chance that he had...

HBO has never shied away from sex in its programming.  Real Sex, Cathouse, and Sex and the City are just a few examples of how much HBO doesn’t hesitate to use sex as a plot device.  Plenty of other shows include sex, however, it isn’t the main topic.  Game of Thrones is one such program. Affairs, rape, prostitution, and casual sex appear quite frequently.  And that is only the heterosexual side of the coin!  Bisexuality and homosexuality also make appearances.  Let’s not forget about the twincest either! But why is it so important?  In the grand context of George R.R. Martin’s stories, sex is rarely the important piece of...
