Now that the Season 5 is upon us, it is time to get excited about it. Here we are going to discuss the top 10 reasons not to miss Game of Thrones Season 5. The new Season 5 is based on the 4th book in the George R.R. Martin’s series ‘A Feast For Crows’. According to critics this is the least popular book of the series.
We know that a lot of fans have been deprived of their favorite heroes being killed in the series but the new Season 5 has so much irony and character building that it’s worth watching. So, we will try our best to avoid spoilers but here are the top 10 reasons why Game of Thrones Season 5 is worth watching. The reasons below are also based on the scenes shown in the Game of Thrones Season 5 trailer.
- New location of Dorne
Game of Thrones has been filmed in many countries including Croatia, Iceland and Ireland etc. But the latest European country to add into the list of locations is the Spain. As seen in the new trailer for the Seasons 5, Spain is now the location of Dorne. Dorne is a place which is considered a home for the Martell royal family and the good wines of Westeros.
- Cersei and Margeary characters get more action
Season 5 trailer shows a cut scene between these two as one of them reads the dialogue as, “If you ever call me sister again I’ll have you strangled in your sleep”. Now this is a pretty great view of how these two characters will get along in the new season 5. There will be more rivalry and politics between the pair who are now set to conquer the new King Tommen territory.
- Introduction of many new characters
The new series introduces a host of new characters into the show. According to a leaked season five casting call, there are 12 new cast members that are expected to be added to the series. However, the new HBO video shows the new faces which include five Dornish characters. There are many other roles as well but it is not sure how they will pan out in the story. But, the introduction of these new characters is a sign that the season 5 of Game of Thrones will be even more exciting to watch.
Rumors were circling around that there will be flashbacks in the upcoming season 5 which will shed light on the events of the Westeros’ past. Also the news about the induction of Maggy the frog (fortune teller) and a younger version of Cersei Lannister in the season 5 proves it even more that the flashbacks will be there in the new season.
- The city of Braavos
Season 4 introduced the city of Braavos which is known for its Titan statue. But apart from some journeys into the city, we really didn’t get much to see about it and what special place it holds in the story. But, season five promises to give us a more closer look at the events that happens in the city from which the sword master Syrio Forel and Jaqen H’ghar originated.
- Improved CGI scenes
We all know that CGI scenes have been used at many places during the entire Game of Thrones season. We saw giants ridding on mammoths in the battle and some fierce skeletons. Season 5 is said to bring more CG and motion-graphic characters. The most likely character to see is the new White Walkers. There is also a mention of the snowbear, a shadowcat and three wolves being introduces in season 5.
- Female claimants to take center stage
Apart from the male dominance to be the claimants of the throne, season 5 will focus more on the female claimants to the throne and will focus on their story. There is more the one potential queen to the throne. There is a cut scene in the trailer in which Lord Baelish tells the Lady of the Vale, “There’s no justice in this world, not unless we make it. Avenge them.” While this dialogue is delivered, we get to see a massive army which could possibly be the army of the Vale lady marching through the Vale. Anything can happen now.
- The return of Jorah
Jorah was last seen riding his horse towards the sunset after he was banished from the Daenerys’s court. But, afraid not, he won’t be gone for too long. In a short scene, he has been seen wearing a fully armored combat suit with a mysterious foe. It looks like he is back and fighting in the new Game of Thrones season 5.
- Another big battle is upon us
Since the battle at the Wall was shown in the seasons four which gained massive popularity, it looks like the producers of the show are going to add some more battles in the new season 5. According to the Game of Thrones season 5 trailer there is an army of Wildlings which are doing something fierce and violent. This could be directly linked to the Hardhome story line but nothing is for sure now.
- The Iron Lands
There is a new royal family who is going to become a central part of the story – the Greyjoys of Iron Islands. It is still not sure what part will this family will play in the new season but it is expected that it will be pushed to a later season if not this one.
