How did hissing ever stop being a thing? You still hear the expression "boo and hiss," but never really hear a crowd totally hiss in unison, just occasionally boo.

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

The first installment of George R.R. Martin's Song of Ice and Fire series of epic fantasy novels was released a whopping 19 years ago.

When HBO launched Game of Thrones in 2011, the devoted fandom that developed in the intervening years had a lot to say about the adaptation of the source material – and they still do (as is the right and beauty of a thriving fandom).

As season 5 of Thrones begins, it's safe to say fans of Martin's series are basically going to lose their minds over the latest developments – for better or for worse. While purists may not enjoy that events from the books are conflated or dropped entirely from season 5, less literal devotees may find themselves enjoying a tighter, cleaner narrative.

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.
