Topic: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

What are you excited about? What are your fears?

I'm excited about if we will see more of the Greyjoys, and also if they will cast more people as Cat o' the canals, Beth etc, or if they will keep Maisie for them all. My fear is that Jaime and Bronn in Dorne will make other characters redundant. Also, I hope the walk of shame will be tactfully brutal, not "sexy".

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Tyrions new companion should be interesting... unless they cut her out completely. So I guess that counts as a fear.

I have a feeling they will cut her hmm
But I hope not!! #YOLO wink

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Game of thrones is a very popular show. Very.
I predict that season 4 was the peak of the show. Season 5 will be where it turns. Maybe that's why they have been holding back some awsome events, they will need them to not lose too many viewers next season?
Unless they make the Meereenese knot interesting, but not many people care about Harzoo et al.
Dorne and the Iron Islands are cool ofc, but it's... new, different. I don't think most viewers will like it.
I think D&D are troubled by this dilemma.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Trailers out:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wqFHOaeLzZ8

A few things noticed from watching it around a dozen times (major spoilers):

SPOILER Show

1. There is a return of a certain dark dragon, lets just say he’s pretty big!
2. Sand Snakes!
3. Tyrion and Varys have escaped and are now in a new city.
4. Varys tells Tyrion he has “a part to play in the war to come” continued by “The Seven Kingdoms needs a ruler loved by millions with a powerful army and the right family name.” Tyrion response with “Good luck finding him”, with a sharp response from Varys “Who said anything about him?” Yeah.. I think we all know who Varys is talking about.
5. Arya arrives at Braavos, where she (in the books) joins a certain legendary guild.
6. Tommen and Margaery’s wedding.
7. Reek does not look happy. Who can blame him..
8. Daenerys dramatically says: “I’m not going to stop the wheel. I’m going to break the wheel.”
9. Jorah fighting a man at (I believe) Daznak’s Pit, which in the books reopens in honor of Daenerys.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Based on plots in the books....

SPOILER Show
1. Jon Snow

When fans last saw Jon Snow (Kit Harington), he had wondered out beyond the wall to make peace with the Wildlings when Stannis Baratheon (Stephen Dillane) showed up with thousands of soldiers. The trailers for the new season reveal that Jon will be forced to be a mediator between the two armies at Castle Black. Book readers know that soon Jon gets an actual title to go along with the leadership duties he has assumed. In fact, he is set to be voted the next Lord Commander of the Night’s Watch! Snow has been an unsung hero throughout the series and it is about time he got the respect he deserves.

2. Arya Stark

Arya is headed to Braavos – that much is already known. The trailers show her at the door of the House of Black and White. However, what happens inside is a mystery to those who have not read Martin’s novels. Well, if the show follows the books, it should be a wild ride. Arya joins the guild of the Faceless Men inside the House of Black and White – a religious organization made up of assassins. As part of her training, the Faceless Men give Arya a special milk that makes her blind!

3. Daenerys Targaryen

In Season 4, Daenerys was having trouble maintaining order over the cities she had conquered and freed. Things will only get worse in Season 5, according to the books. A group called the Sons of the Harpy will form to wage guerrilla warfare on Daenerys’ new empire. In response, the Mother of Dragons will take a new husband – for political reasons – and reopen the gladiatorial fighting pits in Meereen as a way of quelling unrest in the city.

4. Tyrion Lannister

Speaking of Daenerys, Tyrion Lannister will be in the east in Season 5. While Martin’s writings detail quite a few intermediate steps for the fugitive Lannister -- including rendezvousing with Jorah Mormont (Iain Glen) -- he will eventually meet Daenerys. It would be hard to imagine anything much better than the two fan favorite characters coming face to face!

5. Cersei Lannister

Meanwhile, back in King’s Landing, Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) should be in store for a rough season. Without Tyrion or her father Tywin (Charles Dance) around to keep order in the city, she will be vulnerable. When a plan to frame Margaery Tyrell (Natalie Dormer) goes wrong, Cersei will end up on trial for fraud. Book readers know the former queen will be sentenced to a pretty intense penance walk -- one of the new season’s most anticipated scenes.


New characters making their debut....

SPOILER Show
The Sand Snakes

So much of the chatter around the new season has been about the Sand Snakes. The Sand Snakes are the illegitimate daughters of Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal). They all share the name Sand – the family name taken on by children born out of wedlock in Dorne. The snake moniker is a reference to their father’s “Red Viper” nickname. The three daughters – Obara (Keisha Castle-Hughes), Nymeria (Jessica Henwick) and Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers) – are trained warriors and will be out for revenge for their father’s untimely death in Season 4.

The High Sparrow

The High Sparrow is the name of the new High Septon in Season 5 – the head of the Faith of the Seven religion in Westeros. The name comes after the new High Septon sells his cloth robes and gold and guides the religion in a more traditional – and militant – direction. The religious leader will clash with Cersei (Lena Heady) throughout the new episodes as the Faith gains power. Jonathan Pryce will play the new character.   

Doran Martell

Prince Doran Martell (Alexander Siddig) is the ruling prince of Dorne. The wheelchair-bound leader will become a major character as the region becomes an important locale in the show’s plot. His handicap is the result of a bad case of gout, which kept from attending Joffrey’s (Jack Gleeson) wedding in Season 4 – Doran’s brother Oberyn went instead.

Areo Hotah

Areo (DeObia Oparei) is the personal bodyguard for Doran Martell. The soldier will be important in Season 5 when he is sent to stop the Sand Snakes – and others – from making any reckless attempts to avenge Oberyn’s death.

Trystane Martell

In Season 2, Cersei’s daughter Myrcella (Nell Tiger Free) was married off to a prince and sent away to live in Dorne. That prince was Trystane Martell (Toby Sebastian). The young ruler will make his debut in the Season 5 premiere as the Martell family takes interest in his Lannister wife.

Denys Mallister

Mallister (J.J. Murphy) is a senior member of the Night’s Watch who will play a part in the upcoming selection of a new Lord Commander after the death of Jeor Mormont (James Cosmo).

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Shit, 4 episodes out?
I can't fight the urge!
Arrghhhhhhhhhhh
What to do what to do?

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Good Lord I just now discovered the "Mixtape: Catch the Throne" phenomenon on the GoT youtube channel.  It's rare that I find something so highly produced yet so disastrously awful at the same time, lol. I actually had a lot of fun disliking all the videos. Each one was like a new trolling masterpiece from the GoT people.

Here's a sample: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5rEqIdBs77c

What on earth were they thinking?! Snoop Dogg even... Lannister song omg.  Can't believe I didn't notice they did teh same thing last year.

Going back to season 5 news, thanks for the head's up about the episodes. Gonna watch them now!

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

I'm waiting because if i watch the 4 now I may have 4 weeks wait till the next episode no guarantees sad

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

I can wait for HD.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

I'm thinking I'll leave the 1st episode as i can wait until tomorrow at least, but after that i may watch the other 3, then re-watch them in HD when they are released each week, If there's any show i don't mind watching twice it's this one.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

You guys won't probably agree with me, but I kinda lost that eager interest in the show. I mean I'll watch it, but "OMG GOT IS BACK" I'm like... "eh, okay."

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

After watching all four eps I can say it was good. Not great, good. The show is still trying to tackle about two dozens of storylines at the same time, but it's doing a pretty good job.

Here are my impressions (spoiler-free)

+++Jon Snow's storyline

SPOILER Show
fuck yeah now he's got authority smile and I was pleasantly surprised with Jon NOT being merciful in episode 3 :]

+King's Landing storylines
SPOILER Show
Cersei and Margaery exchanging hits is fun, also watching the weak and controllable king

+Daenerys's BIGGER
SPOILER Show
dragons smile

+/- Sansa's storyline
SPOILER Show
hard to tell if it'll turn out good or crap, I only can say for sure that I don't like her dyed hair ;p

+/- Myrcella's storyline
+/- Daenerys's storyline
SPOILER Show
episode 4 had an interesting ending so there's a chance that it'll be better than last season

+/- Tyrion's storyline
- Brienne's storyline
- Arya's storyline

I can too and even more so I can wait til this season is completed. That way I can binge-watch the entire season straight in one day, Netflix-style, like I did with season 4. I have a lot on my plate right now playing catchup with other shows, so they'll hold me over til then. Don't get me wrong I'm definitely a GoT fanatic but I'm also a patient fanatic. wink

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

it was ok.

Drake: Are the restraints really necessary?
Kellogg: Archer broke both Wu’s arms. While shouting “Woo!”
Archer: Happy accident.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Yup, just okay.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

I've noticed they're getting away from books, simplifying the plot which is OK for me since in the last book R.R,Martin is so all over with the story I can't see how he's gonna wrap it up.
After four episodes I think this season is gonna be great.

Re: Season 5 (Spoilers all plus season 5)

Watch episode one and it was a bit slow I thought but it was ok story wise.  We know it will pick up the pace smile
