Game of Thrones Star Warns Fans to 'Be Prepared for the Worst' in Season 5 Premiere

Originally posted 03/20/2015 09:25AM

Take the themes of love, power and revenge – stir in two gruesome murders, a prophecy of death and enough sexual innuendo to burn down the whole of Westeros – and there you have the first episode of Game of Thrones season 5 (spoiler alert).

Everyone's favorite naughty dwarf, Tyrion Lannister (Peter Dinklage), is safe after killing his dad and his lover and getting smuggled out of Westeros by Varys (Conleth Hill). Varys tries to persuade Tyrion to follow a new leader: "Westeros needs to be saved from itself," Varys says. He seems to favor the white-haired beauty Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) as a contender for the throne.

Game of Thrones Season 5 Premiere: 'There's Some Really Dark Stuff Coming'

Send a raven. Game of Thrones is back.

And there couldn't possibly have been a more fitting location for Wednesday night's season 5 world premiere than the Tower of London.

Kit Harington, Natalie Dormer and Charles Dance were among the stars from the acclaimed HBO fantasy drama who brought Westeros to London, where the walls of the "Bloody Tower" were emblazoned with illuminated projections of dragons and flames that flickered along the red carpet.

Even the much-coveted Iron Throne found its way to to the historic fortress, which just happens to be circled by ravens – though not the three-eyed kind.

"Lannister. Baratheon. Stark. Tyrell. They're all just spokes in a wheel."

So speaks Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke) in the latest promo for the return of Game on Thrones to HBO next month.

Along with Daenerys's vow to "break the wheel," the latest trailer promises lots of swordplay and a very scary, fire-breathing dragon. We also catch a glimpse of Jon Snow (Kit Harington) trying to rally the Wildlings.

Oh, and then there are those ominous warning signs that winter is most definitely coming.

George R.R. Martin Would Like to Remind Game of Thrones Fans the Show Was Once a Book Series

Originally posted 02/24/2015 01:10PM

[YOUTUBE "snm6qnezv0Q"] Did you know that HBO's Game of Thrones is based on a literary saga?

Kidding, kidding. But seriously, in his GoT DVD audio commentaries, author George R.R. Martin has a tendency to point out how a certain plot point went down "in the books."

One enterprising fan put together a supercut of every time Martin refers to "the books" during his commentaries. From season 1 to season 4, no "book" was left unturned.
