From the first glimpse, it looks like we have some major action set pieces in store for us. The production value looks magnificently grand with some fantastic CGI and huge sets. Looks like HBO is going all out in bringing Westeros to life, in the best way possible. There seem to be some various dynamics in the works, most interesting is the one between Varys and Tyrion. The trailer promises a marriage(insert colour here), funerals, ample nudity, gore, many battle sequences and a whole lot of new characters. Be very excited. Game of Thrones Season 5 releases on April 12, 2015.
