Dragons Not Included in First 3 Episode Descriptions of Game of Thrones Season 5
But to tide us over, some new info on what we can expect to see, which mirrors the bit we heard the other day about who would be showing up in the season premiere and who wouldn’t.
The general idea of the first three episodes, according to HBO is:
Jon Snow is struggling to balance the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of the newly arrived Stannis Baratheon, who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei scrambles to hold on to power in King’s Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jaime embarks on a secret mission. Across the Narrow Sea, Arya seeks an old friend and a fugitive Tyrion finds a new cause. And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenerys finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires hard sacrifices.
And the titles/descriptions for the first three:
Episode #41 synopsis: “The Wars to Come” Cersei (Lena Headey) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) adjust to a world without Tywin. Varys (Conleth Hill) reveals a conspiracy to Tyrion (Peter Dinklage).
