7. 'Game of Thrones': Melisandre and Stannis (Season 2, Episode 2)
Subtext, schmubtext: When Game of Thrones wants to show you how the rich and powerful fuck over the land of Westeros, they show you the rich and powerful literally fucking over the land of Westeros (or a table carved into the shape of a map thereof). Even an uptight guy like Stannis Baratheon will give into temptation when the chance to produce a son and heir to the Iron Throne with a gorgeous, magically-powered fire priestess is on the table. So to speak.
