The Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere, rightly titled “Two Swords” continues the story of George R.R. Martin’s third novel in the Song of Ice and Fire Series, “A Storm of Swords.” Word around the water cooler is this episode began on a strange note with a very obvious “previously seen of Game of Thrones” series of clips that would remind the viewing audience of who everyone was and whose sword appears in the opening scene.
The episode is framed by swords, both of which belong to Starks. In the very first scene we see Tywin Lannister re-forging Ned Stark’s sword “Ice” made of Valyrian steel into two smaller swords. There’s no dialogue in this scene, and yet it speaks to everything Tywin Lannister is about: the glory of his house. He believes he has conquered the Starks. I mean look at what the Targaryens made when they conquered the seven kingdoms and made them one: The Iron Throne. Burning the pelt of the Dire Wolf was just to rub it in, even if in his own mind. But it is the symbolism of destroying Eddard Stark's famous sword and re-forging the Valyrian steel with Lannistet gold that is meant to set the tone for the season. Tywin Lannister believes he has it all.

In a recent interview with the UK's Sunday times Harry Potter series author, JK Rowling, admitted that Hermione should have wed Harry and not Ron. Not So Daily writer, Amanda, gives us her thoughts on Jo's regret.
The onslaught of automobile ads during Sunday's "Big Game" was nauseating, and if you blinked (or rolled your eyes for a moment) you may have missed a tease for a brand new Captain America: The Winter Soldier. See the full trailer, after the jump.
