The Great Convergence – and Divergence – has begun! This week's Game of Thrones jammed two sets of characters together for the first time, while taking a shocking turn from George R.R. Martin's novels. Plus, Arya (Maisie Williams) ditched her clothes, Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) ditched his virginity, Littlefinger (Aidan Gillen) ditched Sansa (Sophie Turner), Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) ditched his freedom and Jon (Kit Harington) ditched a man's head. All this plus prostitute cosplay(!) in our worship of the third episode of season 5, "High Sparrow."
BraavosBehold the inside of The House of Black and White! Thrones shows off this fancy new set with several shots so we can appreciate all the production detail. The House has the ambience of a gloomy spa's quiet room, where you would sit in a bathrobe sipping cucumber water waiting for your therapist.
Arya grumpily sweeps the stone floor with what looks like a Nimbus 2000. She's unimpressed with the set and annoyed with her janitorial duties. Jaqen H'ghar (Tom Wlaschiha) gives a desperate man a cup of water, then chastises Arya for her impatience: "A girl wants to serve herself."

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 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.

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.

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.

Game of Thrones' fifth season doesn't premiere until the spring, but you won't have to wait that long to get your fix.
HBO and IMAX have partnered to bring the award-winning series to the big screen – what better way to fully immerse yourself in the sex, carnage and witty Lannister repartee?
From Jan. 23–29, the network will screen a full-length trailer of the upcoming season and the last two episodes of season 4 in 150 IMAX screens across the U.S.

In a new trailer from HBO rounding up the best of 2014 – and what's to come for 2015 – a precious few scenes are devoted to the highly anticipated fifth season of the network's most violent, bloody and incest-filled game of royal musical chairs.
Take it all in, people, because these moments (found at 1:38 in the video above) are precious but fleeting.

Yes, George R. R. Martin, we know that every man must die. But that doesn't make the deaths on Game of Thrones any less painful to watch. Fortunately, HBO just made sure that many of the fan favorites could stay around for a lot longer.
The principal stars of the hit HBO drama – who include Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister), Lena Headey (Cersei Lannister) and Kit Harington (Jon Snow) – signed new contracts to keep them around for a potential seventh and final season (and give them massive raises), according to The Hollywood Reporter.
