Is 'Game Of Thrones' On Tonight? Why HBO Decided To Ruin Your Sunday Plans
Bad news, George R. R. Martin fans: Game of Thrones is not on this Sunday. (Let the shouts of disappointment and then the tears of sadness begin.) HBO is "rudely" — please don't hate me, HBO, it's all just tongue-and-cheek — airing The Normal Heart instead of continuing our wonderfully bloody journey through the Seven Kingdoms. (Although, everyone should totally give Ryan Murphy's The Normal Heart a chance because it is really fantastic. The made-for-TV film stars Mark Ruffalo, Matt Bomer, Julia Roberts, and Jim Parsons, and follows the story of the HIV/AIDS crisis in New York City in the 1980s. Sounds like classic HBO to me.)
But just because all of the folks on GoT won't be on our TV screens this week, it doesn't have to mean that their lives and stories are frozen in time. In fact, we bet they're enjoying their day off from having to fight and plan total world domination. It can get pretty tiring doing that every Sunday, you know? Since Daenerys, Cersei, Jon Snow, and the rest of the motley crew can't always be on their A-game, let's take a look at how some of our favorite characters are spending their free time:
He's researching boat fare for a trip to somewhere warmer. Seriously, anywhere without snow will do.
She's flying on Drogon, Harry Potter-style.
The timid redhead is currently reading What's Holding You Back? 30 Days to Having the Courage and Confidence to Do What You Want, Meet Whom You Want, and Go Where You Want.
He's trying really, really hard to will his hand to grow back. (It's not working.)
He's trying to grow a bigger mustache so he can twirl it like the evil villain he's always dreamed of being.
He's reliving that time he slapped Joffrey.
His third-eye lessons with Jojen Reed haven't been going so well, so he's meeting up with Professor Trelawney to work on opening his Inner Eye.
Unfortunately, Theon can only manage to curl up in fetal position and rock back and forth.
He's talking to his therapist about how his brother physically and emotionally scarred him.
She's pretending to be a licensed therapist.
He's still washing his mouth out from all of the Lysa cooties he contracted.
It gets pretty stressful having to carry Bran around all of the time, so he's spending his free time at a local farm where he gets to hang out with the animals all day.
She's crying because she knows Jaime will never love her the way she loves him.
This might not be common knowledge, but it takes an egregious amount of time for Margaery to get her boobs into place. So she'll probably spend most of her day doing that.
She's enjoying her favorite pastime: Getting shitfaced drunk and calling people names.
He's totally sitting in a field of daisies saying, "She loves me, she loves me not." Daenerys is never going to love you, Jorah. The only kisses you're getting are pity kisses. Get over it.
He's still dead. It sucks to be The Worst.
