How did Game of Thrones follow up on one of its most shocking deaths in series history?

By making it look like Joffrey may have been lucky to get killed off.

On Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 3, aptly titled "Breaker of Chains," we witnessed one scene after that proved those still alive are merely prisoners in their own, unhappy way.

There's SANSA, who thought she had escaped the pain of King's Landing, only to end up on Littlefinger's boat and be exposed to the truth that the one man she thought truly wanted to help her... didn't really care about helping her at all.

If she better off with Baelish than she had been at King's Landing? Maybe? Possibly?

At one point on The Vampire Diaries Season 5 Episode 18, Damon took a giant yawn because he was bored by the yarn Markos was spinning about very ancient history.

And we couldn't help but think: We feel your pain, buddy.

One of the more boring, uneventful hours in show history, the latest installment of this floundering CW drama officially introduced viewers and characters to the leader of The Travelers.

He quickly dispensed with the whole Doppleganger Prophecy business by saying he created a curse 1,500 years ago that was meant for his kind to gather the blood of the final Dopplegangers because only that could break the curse placed upon the Travelers by the Witches. 

They are unable to chill and gather in one place at the moment, hence the use of Passengers.

Following an American Idol performance show that displayed two of this season's best covers to date, another contestant was sent home this week.

We knew it wouldn't be Jena Irene or Alex Preston, not after their vocals on Wednesday, and at least Ryan Seacrest didn't drag out the drama.

These were the first two to move on to the final six.

Caleb Johnson then got the green light, with C.J. Harris next and then Sam Woolf moving on.

And we finally have a clear-cut favorite on American Idol!

The Top 7 put on the best performance night of Season 13 Wednesday, as producers came up with a first-ever twist for the long-running competition:

The finalists selected tracks for one another, proving how tight-knit they actually are by refusing to sabotage anyone's performance with a difficult or eccentric song.

That's no fun, as know, but it was loads of fun to watch Jene Irene close the show with a cover of "Creep." It earned a standing ovation (from everyone except a focused Harry Connick Jr.) and it propeled her to the front of this mostly mundane pack.

Watch all seven solo performances now:

Jena Irene - "Creep"

Do you agree? Was Irene the best? Or were you taken by Alex Preston instead?

Well, so much for that treaty. It lasted a solid day or two.

On The Originals Season 1 Episode 18, the peace that Elijah had arranged between humans, vampires, werewolves and witches went out in a blaze of smoke.

Sorry, correction: it went out in a bloodbath, as Marcel compelled some humans to slit their own wrists at a party in honor of the new witches, the vampires there couldn't control themselves and dead bodies were left in a chaotic wake.

No wonder this installment was titled "The Big Uneasy."

In response to Marcel intervening in the city's calm, Elijah killed Thierry. He tore the guy's heart out of his chest right in front of his best friend.

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:

Scandal season 3 might have gotten a shortened order because of Kerry Washington's pregnancy, but as it turns out, that's been a very, very good thing. It's forced the show to step up its game in the storytelling department and things are getting absolutely insane over there in the fake D.C.

Last night's episode, Scandal Season 3 Episode 17, saw Oliva Pope and her team racing against the clock to find a group of terrorists before they detonate a bomb which will blow up the President. To find the terrorists, they need to find Maya Pope.

But Maya Pope, because she's the wiliest villain in primetime right now, got to them first. The results were potentially deadly.

The night began with Jake confronting Olivia about the dismantling of B613. President Grant appeared and wanted to know what the plan was to fix things, telling Olivia she'd made a huge mistake. Despite the fact that Fitz sided with Jake in the Olivia-screwed-up argument, Jake decided to go ahead and reveal to the President just how she managed to take down the super secret super spy society.

By sleeping with Jake, of course.

American Idol went back in time this week, as the contestants performed songs from the 1980s.

But the remaining eight hopefuls could only look to the past for so long, as they were forced to consider the future on Thursday, namely:

Who would be sticking around to take the stage against next Wednesday evening? 

The Great 8

In quick succession, those voted to safety were Caleb Johnson... followed by Jessica Meuse... and Dexter Roberts. CJ Harris was the first to land in the Bottom 3.

The pressure was on for the remaining American Idol finalists this week.

Following Sam Woolf's save last week, there will be more more Season 13 pardons. This is now it. If the viewers say so, you are out of the competition.

With that scary knowledge secure in their minds, the Top 8 took the stage last night (with David Cook as a mentor) and belted out covers of classics from the 1980s.

How did they fare? It wasn't the most memorable performance episode of all-time, with many hopefuls choosing obvious tracks and no one really blowing us away.

But you can cycle through all eight solo auditions now and then vote on your favorite:

Caleb Johnson - "Faithfully"

Best Wrestlemania ever?

We know what some WWE fans would say in response to that question: YES! YES! YES!

A new champion was crowned, a record streak came to an end and three icons got the night started in memorable fashion.

Indeed, Hulk Hogan, The Rock and Stone Cold Steve Austin graced the ring together to kick off the evening, screaming out their catchphrases and toasting each other with a beer to close the raucous segment.

And Wrestlemania XXX only got crazier from there.
