‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5 Clips: The Good Lords Are Dead, and the Rest Are Monsters!
Game of Thrones Season 5 won’t unsheathe its sword until April 12, and even with House of Cards Season 3 sating our fix for bloodshed and political maneuvering, the world of Westeros seems Winters away. No longer, as “The Sight” has revealed our first two clips from the newest Game of Thrones episodes!
Admittedly off in image quality to reflect the “Sight” motif, HBO’s first two looks at Game of Thrones Season 5 catch us up with Jon Snow and Mance Rayder after “The Watchers on the Wall,” also checking on Brienne and Podrick after their failure to save “The Children.” Both stayed largely silent in the initial Season 5 trailer, but have hardly run out of road in adapting George R.R. Martin’s literary works this year.
Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 5 (already renewed for 6, with the cast signed through 7), we know of multiple returning, confirmed absent, and new characters cast, including those that confirm we’ll be visiting the oft-mentioned kingdom of Dorne, for which Spain doubles. The story will draw heavily from George R.R. Martin’s fourth and fifth novels, A Feast for Crows and A Dance with Dragons, while HBO has also provided a list of directors, as well as insight into which literary stories may not make the transition to film.
