Emilia Clarke and Kit Harrington may occupy different parts of Westeros on HBO's Game of Thrones, but according to sources on set, the two young actors are spending plenty of time together.

"Emilia has been telling friends that they would make a cute couple," an insider tells Star magazine. The friend claims Emilia has "fallen hard" for Kit and Harrington recently told her that the the feeling is mutual.

Unlike most shows, GoT films all over the world, so Kit and Emilia reportedly have difficulty squeezing in time with one another.

"He's usually in Iceland or Ireland while she films in Morocco or Croatia," says Emilia's friend. "But you can see those two are on a collision course with romance."

Weddings in the land of Westeros tend to end badly, so dress designers were probably a bit surprised when brides-to-be across the globe began requesting Game of Thrones-inspired bridal gowns.

Don't be confused: the gown isn't purple. That's just the name GoT fans have given to Dormer's infamous wedding on the show.

Natalie Dormer's topless photos may have caught the attention of male GoT fans, but it was it the rose-and-thorn adorned wedding dress that Natalie wore during Margaery Tyrell's wedding to Prince Joffrey that's caught the attention of female viewers.

Yes, despite its unique cut and color, the dress Dormer wore during the so-called "Purple Wedding" has become a fan favorite and is expected to appear in several GoT-themed ceremonies this upcoming wedding season.

The dress has made a star of the HBO series' costume designer Michele Clapton, who says the dress was inspired by the Tyrell family's rose sigil and the form-fitting cut of the grown represents Margaery's desire to break with tradition (and piss off Joffrey's mother, Cersei).

Readers of George R.R. Martin's epic-length A Song of Ice and Fire series knew that King Joffrey wasn't long for this world once he got engaged to Margaery Tyrell, but for millions of Game of Thrones fans, last night's "Purple Wedding" was something of a pleasant shock.

It's rough to watch anyone go out in such an agonizing fashion but when the victim is an uber-douche like Joffrey Baratheon, you can't be help but wish he suffered more.

For those who missed it: King Joff was poisoned at his own wedding.

Moments earlier he'd dumped a goblet of wine on his Uncle Tyrion's head and further humiliated the fan favorite by appointing him the royal cup-bearer.

Winter is coming.

So Game of Thrones has been warning fans for years.

But, really, the HBO drama should have come with a slightly different tagline: Wedding are coming

Joffrey on His Wedding Day

With viewers still recovering from last year's shocking attacks on Robb Stark, his pregnant wife and his mother last year, we were treated to another wedding ceremony this week on Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 2.

With more deadly consequences:

The fourth season premiere of Game of Thrones drew record ratings, and the wildly popular series has already been renewed for seasons 5 and 6, so the new actors to join the cast of GOT are a lucky lot of virtual unknowns, even if most of their characters will probably end up being slaughtered in horrific fashion.

The most buzzed-about new star in the land of Weteros is Pedro Pascal who assumes the role of Oberyn Martell - a nobleman with a score to settle.

Also known as the Red Viper, Martell proves to be a game-changing character in upcoming storylines. Pascal has stated that he's perfectly comfortable with the show's graphic depictions of Martell's dalliances with both sexes. 

Indira Varma plays Martell's sultry traveling companion, Ellaria Sand. Judging by her previous stint on HBO's Rome, we're guessing Varma is also okay with showing her seductive side on camera. 

In a surprise casting change, Michiel Huisman replaced Ed Skrein as Daario Naharis - love interest to Emilia Clarkes' Daenerys. Skrein was a fan favorite, but left to take on the role previously played by Jason Statham in a reboot of the popular Transporter franchise.

As it turns out, Kim Kardashian and Gwyneth Paltrow didn't come up with such bizarre baby names after all.

According to data from the Social Security Administration in 2012, there were 146 female babies born in the United States that year named Khaleesi.

This, of course, is the moniker given to Emilia Clarke’s character on Game of Thrones after she marries a Dothraki leader on Season 1 of the HBO epic.

The unusual name (which makes North and Apple seem downright normal) is more popular than some more typical female names, such as Brandy (130) and Alex (128).

Since its 2011 debut, GoT has met or exceeded the high expectations set by HBO, setting a new high water mark this spring, with no apparent end in sight.

A series-record 6.6 million viewers saw the Season 4 premiere, breaking online piracy records and briefly crashing HBO Go, the network's streaming service.

The first episode of 2014, "Two Swords," became the network’s most watched episode of any show since The Sopranos' 2007 finale (11.9 million viewers).

Suffice it to say, the series is only becoming more popular with time.

In an effort to continue that upward trajectory, showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have also been signed to a new contract through Season 6.

Excited for the renewal? What did you think of Sunday's premiere? Where do you see the show going in the next three seasons? Comment below!

Christina Hendricks already stars on one critically-acclaimed series but it seems the busty redheaded star of Mad Men may have her sights set on another popular franchise.

Christina appeared on Conan last night where she discussed a comment she'd earlier made to reporters about her desire to appear on Game of Thrones.

Christina admitted that she's "never seen" the show and was "confused" when she tried to watch an episode from Season 2, but still gives the wildly popular series as her number one answer when asked what sort of show she'd like to try next.

Explaining her off-the-cuff remark about a show she's never watched, Christina said, "I was just thinking of all those pelts and horns and wolves and horses or whatever they have," likely causing fanboy heads to explode across the country.

With Mad Men entering its final season, it's no wonder Christina wants to get on board with a show so popular its premiere crashed HBO Go and of course her famously curvaceous figure would fit right in with GOT's sexually-charged atmosphere.

Turns out, there were two major deaths on the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere.

Not only did Arya recover her beloved sword after plunging it into the neck of Polliver, but the episode itself totally killed HBO Go.

Much to the extreme chagrin of fan around the nation, the return episode of this epic drama crashed the network's online service.

Arya on the Attack

In response to many users receiving a “fatal error” message at a most inopportune time, HBO released the following statement:

"HBO Go did experience issues due to overwhelming demand around the premiere of Game of Thrones. The service has returned to several platforms and we are working hard towards full recovery, which we expect soon."

The Red Wedding may have removed a threat from King Joffrey and the Lannisters last year, but the Game of Thrones Season 4 premiere made one thing clear tonight:

New enemies are always around the corner.

Or, in the case of Prince Oberyn Martell, partying it up on the grounds of your very own castle.

Pedro Pascal as the Prince

Viewers met this dangerous character on Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 1, as he pretty much invited himself to Joffrey's wedding and made his intentions clear to Tyrion.
