Here's our handy guide to everything we know about Game of Thrones Season 5, including details about the cast, information about the episodes, when the show airs and more. Here's what we know about Game of Thrones' big Season 5 premiere.
Please keep in mind that this article features plenty of spoilers from the latest episodes; if you aren't caught up on the series, please head out now and read one of our other wonderful articles!
What happened in the most recent episode?In King's Landing, Cersei is playing with fire as she tries to take on the Tyrells. I don't know about you, but it seems to be an ill-advised path. Elsewhere, others are making bids for power; in the North the Boltens are about to have a big fight with Stannis Baratheon, and Littlefinger seems determined to be there to pick up the pieces. Unfortunately, Sansa is caught in the middle and she agrees to marry Ramsay Bolten, only to have her new husband force Theon to watch as they have sex.
We don't get anything from Dany this week, but Jaime and Bronn are nearly successful at grabbing Myrcella. They manage to keep her from the Sand Snakes, but then everyone gets caught. Poor Tyrion and Jorah aren't doing so hot, either, as they get picked up by pirates partway through the episode.
Most excitingly, however, Arya proves she can be an asset in the House of Black and White and is moving onto a pretty incredible path.
What Happened During Episode 1?Episode 1, “The Wars to Come” kicked off with Cersei and Jaime mourning their father and squabbling more like siblings than lovers. Pod and Brienne are still journeying, and at the Wall, Jon Snow has to play a part in Mance Rayder’s fate when Stannis asks him to bend the knee. In the meantime, Littlefinger and Sansa are more in cahoots than ever. Across the sea, Tyrion and Varys finally reach land, and the latter convinces the former to head to Meereen to join Daenary’s entourage. In Meereen, the townsfolk want to reopen the fighting pits, to Dany’s disapproval.

What Happened During Episode 2?Episode 2, “The House of Black and White,” features Arya attempting to gain entry into the titular Braavos community, and after sitting outside for what seems like days, she runs off to kill a pigeon for food. Eventually, however, her former pal Jaqen H’gar reveals himself to her.
Elsewhere, Brienne and Pod are almost successful at regaining control of Sansa. Unfortunately, she seems pretty cool with chilling with Littlefinger, who obviously doesn’t want to let his prize go. Brienne needs to just cool it with the whole vow thing and move on, now that both Stark girls have rebuffed her.
In Meereen, Danny is still dealing with problems related to the Sons of the Harpy. More excitingly, however, Drogon shows up! While this is going on, far away at the wall Maester Aemon casts the deciding vote to make Jon Snow the leader of the Night’s Watch. Being a leader ain’t easy.

What Happened During Episode 3?Episode 3, "High Sparrow," features a ton of curveballs. Namely, Littlefinger reveals his plan to Sansa to marry her off to Ramsay Bolten, the former bastard of Roose Bolten. Sansa reluctantly agrees to the match after a rousing speech from Littlefinger, but she doesn't know Ramsay is more of a monster than Joffrey. Meanwhile, Brienne and Pod are still looking for ways to extricate her from Littlefinger's clutches.
Further north, Jon Snow is still dealing with some unrest on the wall. He briefly takes some lip from dissenter Janos Slynt, but pulls a trick from his dad Ned Stark's book by beheading him. Stannis seems to respect the kid and his decisions, but for now, the Night's Watch will remain on the Wall.
Meanwhile, the religious faction known as the Sparrows is causing some havoc in King's Landing. Cersei's sort of engaged with the religious group, but she has bigger fish on her mind. During the episode, Tommen officially weds Margaery and the Tyrell woman now has more power as the queen. Bitchy conversations between the two women ensue. It's great.
