As expected, politics are in play as the men look to choose the new Lord Commander; even after being stuck in a box at sea for months, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage) still has some of the best one liners, Queen Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) is still all about justice and Jon Snow (Kit Harington) is stuck between two kings.
Season 5 seems to be a turning point for Jon Snow’s character. In the very first episode, he refuses to watch the King Beyond The Wall, Mance Rayder (Ciaran Hinds), burn to his death. At the same time, the episode ends with a shot of him holding a bow as his arrow kills Mance Rayder.
The slaver city, Meereen, conquered by Queen Daenerys Targaryen is just as hot as ever, though now we see people being murdered by a terrorist group known as the Sons Of The Harpy, as a defiance to the queen’s rule.
In the first episode of itself Game Of Thrones Season 5, we got to know that Queen Regent Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) has always been a spoiled little minx, Tyrion has become a raging alcoholic and poor dull Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) is probably never going to figure out that Lord Petyr Littlefinger Baelish (Aidan Gillen) isn’t really her friend. Wow!! Too much excitement.
In a flashback, we also got to see a young Cersei having her future told by a witch. This witch told her that she would marry a king, but also warned her that the three children she will have won’t survive. Now that’s drama!!
The first episode had one key death, one sex scene and some action; thus setting the tone for what’s in store for us in the coming episodes.
As always, the show is shot beautifully and technically brilliant. The statue of the harpy tumbling from the pyramid in Meereen is one of the most impressive special effects one has ever got to see on television.
All in all, Game Of Thrones Season 5 promises to be the most exciting season so far.
It is full of violence, it is laced with nudity and it's happens to be the most crucial seasons of all; well, well are talking about Game Of Thrones S...3.0
