Game of Thrones Premiere Recap: 'Gold Will Be Their Crowns, Gold Their Shrouds'

Originally posted 04/12/2015 11:30PM

Sunday's eagerly awaited Game of Thrones premiere gave fans plenty to talk about: The fantasy hit's first-ever flashback scene starred Mean Girl Cersei, a game-changing conversation between Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) and Varys (Conleth Hill) demanded a singularly unique recap, Daario's (Michiel Huisman) butt made a return appearance and one recurring character was subject to a brutal burning at the stake (a.k.a. what HBO's lawyers are planning to do to whoever leaked its Thrones screeners online).

Game of Thrones: 6 Spoiler-Free Secrets from Season 5

Originally posted 04/12/2015 01:50PM
