If you’re dying for Game of Thrones updates, here are some cryptic (of course) comments from Emilia Clarke. And here’s a clip as well as Alfie Allen and Iwan Rheon kissing on Jimmy Kimmel Live.

The Fug Girls are now recapping Outlander!

Make sure you don’t miss Caroline Framke’s lovely piece on Bridget Jones.
