‘Game of Thrones’ Season 5: Even More Photos and Behind the Scenes Trailers
We’re less than a month from the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere, and even with two trailers under our belt, the old gods and the new have seen fit to tease even more of HBO’s fifth run at George R.R. Martin’s fantasy drama. See a new side of Season 5 with a bevy of new Game of Thrones photos, as well as behind-the-scenes previews and a new trailer!
In addition to the first batch of photos, the newest looks at Game of Thrones Season 5 show off a bit more Cersei and Sansa, fully decked out in her new black garb and hanging with Littlefinger in their trip outside the Vale (which many have suggested likely toward Winterfell). Elsewhere, Jon Snow confronts Mance Rayder once again, while the kingdom of Dorne seems to be in a tizzy, and Arya hasn’t quite gotten her new makeover just yet.
So reads the new season’s first episode synopses:
Episode #41: “The Wars to Come”: Cersei and Jaime adjust to a world without Tywin. Varys reveals a conspiracy to Tyrion. Dany faces a new threat to her rule. Jon is caught between two kings. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Michael Slovis.)
Episode #42: “The House of Black and White”: Arya arrives in Braavos. Pod and Brienne run into trouble on the road. Cersei fears for her daughter’s safety in Dorne as Ellaria Sand seeks revenge for Oberyn’s death. Stannis tempts Jon. An adviser tempts Dany. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Michael Slovis.)
Episode #43: “High Sparrow”: In Braavos, Arya sees the Many-Faced God. In King’s Landing, Queen Margaery enjoys her new husband. Tyrion and Varys walk the Long Bridge of Volantis. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.)
Elsewhere of Game of Thrones Season 5 (already renewed for 6, with the cast signed through 7, and further talk of beyond), we know of multiple returning, confirmed absent, and new characters cast, confirming the show’s trip to Spain. 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.
