As the fifth season of Game Of Thrones draws ever-closer, and our stress as to which of our beloved characters might die horribly this year increases, someone has gone ahead an leaked plot synopses for the first three episodes.
These synopses, published by the SpoilerTV website, are not super specific, and really only offer an overview of what’s to come, but nonetheless, we kind of suspect you’re excited.
If you don’t like spoilers, well, we really don’t know why you’ve clicked or read through this far, but we’ll give you one more chance to back out. Still with us? Good, here goes:

SpoilerTV also revealed the title of the season’s fourth episode, ‘The Sons Of The Harpy’, which is a reference to a group that oppose Daenerys‘s rule in Mereen, and hope to get rid of her.
A few months ago, word spread that certain characters would be sitting this season out, so we’re especially glad to see that The Pod And Brienne Show is returning for another fun-filled year.
