Trivia

In the books, Ser Barristan Selmy tells Daenerys only positive facts about her father, nothing about the atrocities he committed. The worst thing Selmy ever told about the Mad King is that he had lusted after Joanna Lannister (Tywin's wife) and acted indecently during her bedding ceremony. See more »

Goofs

Cersei states that there are only two lion pendants in the world, hers and Myrcella's; actually, Joffrey gave Sansa an identical pendant in Game of Thrones: A Golden Crown, and Tyrion gave one to Ros in Game of Thrones: The Wolf and the Lion. See more »

Quotes

Tyrion Lannister: [about Shae] She wanted me to leave King's Landing. She begged me. I wouldn't go.
Lord Varys: Why?
Tyrion Lannister: Because I liked it. Power. Even as a servant.

Preamble of the Fifth Season
20 April 2015 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Arya Stark sails to Braavos and arrives at the House of Black and White to seek out Jaqen H'ghar; however she is not welcomed to enter in the house and she throws her coin away into the sea. Brienne and Podrick are eating in a tavern and she contacts Sansa and Little Finger, but Sansa refuses to follow Brienne. The men that are escorting Little Finger and Sansa unsuccessfully hunt Brienne and Podrick down on the road. Cersei shows to Jaime that their daughter Myrcella is in danger and Jaime seeks out Bronn and makes an offer for him to travel with him to Dome. In Meereen, the Son of Harpy is captured and Daenerys has a meeting with her leaders to decide his fate. Barristan advises her to give a fair trial to the man; however Mossador disrespects her order and kills the Son of Harpy. Daenerys sentences him to death and there is a riot in Meereen. Jon Snow is invited by Stannis Baratheon to serve him; in return, he would give the North to Jon and he would be Jon Stark, Lord of Winterfell. But Job Snow turns the invitation down and he is chosen to be the new Commander of the Night Watch. Arya is finally invited to come to the House of Black and White.by Jaqen H'ghar.

"The House of Black and White" is the preamble of the Fifth Season. The destiny of Arya in Braavos is a mystery. Sansa seems to be lost following Little Finger. The journey of Jaime and Bronn will certainly be full of action. Daenerys is following the path of her father. Let's see how Jon Snow will deal with Janos and Alliser Thorne. My vote is eight.

Title (Brazil): "The House of Black and White"
