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).

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.

Game of Thrones is known for its most shocking moments – brutal massacres, gratuitous sex, horrific weddings, gut-wrenching tragedy (plus, literal gut-wrenching). But aside from shaking us to our core on a weekly basis, the HBO hit teaches us about what it means to be – and succeed as – a human being in a cruel, unforgiving world.

That's what Seth Meyers found out the hard way in this sketch from Late Night Monday, in which the host brings Kit Harington's soulful Game of Thrones character to a dinner party only to find out that he's not very good at making small talk, unless it's about how winter is coming.

Forget that "winter is coming." The end is coming for fans of George R.R. Martin's Game of Thrones books a lot sooner than they might like.

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.

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.
