melisandre-stannis game of thrones-season-2-episode-4-garden-of-bonesYou thought Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) was a monster before? He killed off Ned Stark (Sean Bean). Well, everyone kills off Sean Bean in shows and films. He's awful to Sansa (Sophie Turner). You ain't seen nothing yet. "Game of Thrones" episode 4 "Garden of Bones" is going to show you a new, extra evil side of Joffrey. In fact, you may end up thinking better of Sansa. As Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) says, "Lady Sansa, you may survive us yet."

In the episode, we're also going to get a glimpse of what might actually be some real feeling from Littlefinger (Aidan Gillian). Sure, he's still working all the sides, and he can't quite catch Margaery (Natalie Dormer), but there really is something he wants besides power.

Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) may have found a way out of her predicament, but it involves some serious negotiation, something she's never really learned how to do, Robb Stark (Richard Madden) learns a hard lesson about war, while Arya (Maisie Williams) learns about survival. But the big news this week involves a birth that could change everything. This is a don't miss episode.

"Game of Thrones" airs Sunday nights on HBO.
