In just under two months, Game of Thrones, one of the best shows on TV, returns for another sure to be thrilling season filled with unforgettable moments. The trailer for Season 5 hints at some of the spectacular events that audiences should expect from HBO's fantasy this year and, as usual, there are going to be a lot of dead bodies. And that includes characters who are still alive in George R. R. Martin's "A Song of Ice and Fire." Given the slippery nature of adaptation, these are only predictions but here are 10 moments from the fifth season of Game of Thrones that are going to be epic...

Obviously, this list is going to wade into spoiler territory since it involves discussion of (and speculation based on) GRRM’s "ASOIAF," so if you haven’t read the five available books it's probably best you stop here. Unless you don't care about that kind of thing...

”Theon
10. Reek's Rebellion
This is the first sentence of the first entry and I already have to reiterate my 'entering the great unknown' qualifier. Game of Thrones has been going further and further off-book as the series progresses so it has become increasingly difficult to predict what will happen in an upcoming season. My prediction? Season 5 will exhaust (or surpass) the novels in all storylines and that means fans will get to see Reek's transformation back to Theon while living in the ruins of Winterfell. The epic moment in question is not the wedding night (you sickos) but when the traumatized Greyjoy heir eventually rescues Ramsay's new bride from the sadistic Bolton. Will GOT include the 'Hooded Man' (and musicians) or have Theon act on his own accord?
