Game-Of-Thrones-2015-Season-5-Poster-Wallpaper

Episode: 503
Airdate: April 26, 2015
Directed by: Mark Mylod

Written by: David Benioff & D.B. Weiss (creators); George R.R. Martin (“A Song of Ice and Fire” by); David Benioff & D.B. Weiss (written for television by)

Three episodes into the new season, and tonight we see a definite ramping up of tension across several storylines. While last week gave us successes for some fan-favorite characters – Dany reuniting with Drogon, Jon gaining rank and authority – tonight we begin to see what the result and cost of new power can be, in at least one of these two cases. Another strong episode – the strongest of the season so far – and a more focused, integrated approach, means a rapt hour passed by far quicker than most. Click through for my full review and synopsis.

Last week’s premiere served to reintroduce us to several storylines left hanging at the end of last season. Tonight, we caught up with one more – a personal and fan favorite – as well as catching a glimpse of what is sure to be one of the central new powers throughout Season 5. Others got a bit more time, and more than one character has already been dumped into the proverbial fire already, just two weeks in. Click through for my complete review and synopsis.

“Eagerly anticipated” sounds not only trite, but is almost an understatement when it comes to Game of Thrones. In fact, each new season is so “eagerly anticipated” that several hundred thousand people (more likely over a million by now) couldn’t wait until the show premiered tonight, watching the first four episodes after they were leaked online late last night (read my take on this leak here). But none of that for us! After the long wait, winter is finally coming – again. Click through for my review and full synopsis on tonight’s Season 5 Premiere.
