Game of Thrones (HBO)
The song: Sigur Rós, ”The Rains of Castamere”
The episode: ”The Lion and the Rose” (402)
The hook: The April 13 episode saw Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) leave Westeros for good, but just because Joffrey’s death was welcome didn’t make it any less shocking. Perhaps King Baratheon had it coming after churlishly dismissing the band (Icelandic trio Sigur Rós in a guest spot) from a wedding banquet. Never fear, all was well that ended well for the rockers — more than we can say for Joffrey — as ”Rains of Castamere” played out the episode.
