jaime-jumping-topper

Heading into the latest episode of Game of Thrones, we at TNW had hoped for an infusion of bears, an excess of dragon shots and the introduction of really, really ridiculously good-looking babies. And HBO came through in a big way! With the season past its midway point, the plot is really starting to thicken, proving plenty of fodder for the newest edition of our Power Rankings.

Tywin may be the world’s worst father, but damn if he doesn’t have great legs.

Lots of movement in this week’s Power Rankings, fueled by a spike in sexual activity and at least five naked bums. Plot lines are moving quickly and yes, Tywin is still the world’s biggest dickhead father.

Game of Thrones Power Rankings: And Now His Watch Is Ended

Great episode this week, especially since we at The Night’s Watch are officially obsessed with Dany. We’ll get into it below in the rankings, but “And Now His Watch Is Ended” (Episode 4) was the best of the season. We lost a key character or two and had pretty good plot movement on several storylines. Oh, and Tywin is still a huge a dick to his children and the legend of Sex God Pod continues to grow.
