Who better for the "Two For Tuesday" edition of the ASOTV showcase than the best incestuous twins in the main Toobworld since Buffy and Jody Davis*? (Oh, you never read the slash-fic, have you?)

From the 'Game Of Thrones' Wiki:
Cersei Lannister, rarely called Cersei Baratheon, is a major character in Game of Thrones. She is played by starring cast member Lena Headey and débuts in the first episode of the first season. Cersei is the Queen Dowager of the Seven Kingdoms. She has installed her son Joffrey Baratheon on the Iron Throne. She claims that he is a legitimate son from her marriage to the late King Robert Baratheon but he is actually the product of her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime Lannister. She is embroiled in a rivalry with House Stark, fearing that they will expose the truth.

Cersei is the only daughter of Lord Tywin Lannister, the twin sister of Ser Jaime Lannister and the elder sister of Tyrion Lannister. She is the wife of King Robert Baratheon, a political marriage Robert agreed to in thanks for her father's late switching of sides in the civil war which brought Robert to power. She has three children: Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen. She claims that they are Robert's although they are actually illegitimate and a result of her incestuous relationship with her brother Jaime, which is not common knowledge. She is noted for her great beauty.


From the 'Game Of Thrones' Wiki:
Jaime Lannister is a major character in Game of Thrones. He is played by starring cast member Nikolaj Coster-Waldau and débuts in the first episode of the first season. Jaime Lannister is a knight of the Kingsguard and is in love with his twin sister Queen Cersei Lannister. Jaime pushed Bran Stark from a derelict tower when Bran saw him having sexual intercourse with Cersei. Bran survived his injuries but could not recall being pushed. Evidence emerged implicating House Lannister sparking a feud with House Stark. After King Robert Baratheon's death and the dismissal of Lord Commander Barristan Selmy, Jaime was promoted in absentia to commander of the Kingsguard. Jaime was in the Riverlands leading the siege of Riverrun when his son Joffrey assumed the Iron Throne. Jaime was captured by Robb Stark in the Battle of the Whispering Wood.

Ser Jaime Lannister is a knight of the Kingsguard, a position he has held for twenty years since a teenager. He first rose to the post under the Mad King, Aerys II Targaryen. Jaime killed the Mad King at the conclusion of Robert's Rebellion when he threatened to torch the city of King's Landing. For this act he earned the epithet 'Kingslayer'. He was forgiven his breaking of his vows by King Robert Baratheon and permitted to remain in the Kingsguard, part of Robert's alliance with House Lannister (along with the marriage of Jaime's twin sister Cersei to Robert).

Jaime is the eldest son of Lord Tywin Lannister of Casterly Rock, the head of House Lannister and the Lord paramount of the Westerlands. Due to his place in the Kingsguard Jaime cannot inherit his father's lands. He is the older brother of Tyrion and the twin brother of Cersei. In a secret known to only a few, he is also Cersei's lover and the biological father of her children, Joffrey, Myrcella and Tommen, whom the world belives are Robert's. Jaime is infamous for his killing of the Mad King, but is also noted for his arrogance and martial skills.
