This weekend on TV: 'Game of Thrones' wraps up Season 4, and lots of World Cup soccer

Another excellent season of Game of Thrones (Sunday, 10 p.m., HBO) comes to an end - a season that has so far seen a whole lot of characters who deserve to die actually perish.

In the finale, an unexpected arrival north of the Wall changes circumstances; Dany is forced to face harsh realities; Bran learns more about his destiny; and Tyrion sees the truth of his situation.
