Emilia Clarke as Daenerys Targaryen in Game of Thrones

After inspiring oodles of screams and tears with last year's late-season bloodbath, Game of Thrones has quite an act to follow when its fourth season premieres this Sunday at 8pm. But with an ensemble this large, there are always more throats to be slit.


The season premiere introduces a new Lannister foe, Dornish prince Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal), whose still seeking revenge for the murder of his sister and her children when Robert took the throne from the Targaryens. Dany's (Emlia Clarke) dragons are getting mighty big and much harder to control. Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is preparing his Black Brothers for the wildlings' attack on Castle Black. And, of course, there's the upcoming wedding between King Joffrey (Jack Gleeson) and Margaery (Natalie Dormer). Will it suffer the same fate as the last nuptials we saw?


The Sunday TV schedule is going to be packed this spring. The fourth season of Thrones will be followed by new comedy Silicon Valley and the Emmy-winning Veep, while AMC tries to combat the dragon hype with their new Revolutionary War spy drama Turn.


Next week, the field will get even more crowded with premieres of Mad Men and Californication's final seasons, a new year of Nurse Jackie, and the launch of the James Cameron-produced docu-series Years of Living Dangerously.


It's enough to give your poor DVR a panic attack. What will you be watching this Sunday?
