Game of Thrones Takes Memorial Day Hiatus

Wait wait wait! You mean, I don’t get to find out what happens to Tyrion and the gang until 2 weeks from now?!  But Dany! And Robb! And Sansa! And Arya and the Hound! And and and!… With so much about to happen and only two – 2! – episodes left, I just don’t know what I’m going to do with myself.  I guess I could start weeding my garden… break out the lawnmower… clean the swimming pool… actually participate in the world…

So what a cliffhanger. Poor Gendry, at the mercy of Melisandre and Stannis. And just what can or will Davos do? Those leeches popping in flame did not make for a pleasant scene. Tyrion and Sansa: are they doomed? Or can there be happiness there?  He probably is the Lannister least likely to kill her and make her life 100% miserable and horrid. Arya is stuck with the Hound, but can they get to the Twins on time? Will she ever see her mother and brother again? Or even Sansa? And Sam and Gilly! Just what happened there? Did he kill an Other, a real true Other? AHHH!!!!! HBO, what a fickle mistress you are, teasing throughout “Second Sons” and trailing us along like this for two whole weeks!

If you are like me and will be jonesing for some HBO goodness this Sunday, May 26th, set your DVRs (or channel) up for HBO’s new movie “Behind the Candelabra,” the behind-the-scenes story of the amazingly gifted Liberace (played by Michael Douglas) and his five-year romantic relationship with Scott Thorson (Matt Damon). From the clips I’ve seen and buzz I’ve heard, man, this movie will be fantastic! If you do happen to miss it, check us out on Monday morning for the best recap of “Behind the Candelabra” on the Internet. And even if you do see, come check us out anyway!  Here’s the trailer for the Liberace flick:
