Did You Know?


The leadership of Meereen in the novels runs a different course after Daenerys disappears with Drogon, as Hizdahr zo Loraq and Ser Barristan Selmy are still alive. After Daenerys disappears, Hizdahr declares himself King of Meereen as he had recently married Daenerys, but is shortly thereafter deposed and imprisoned by Ser Barristan, who believes Hizdahr collaborated with Daenerys' enemies the Sons of the Harpy and the Yunkai Wise Masters. Ser Barristan remains the Queen's Hand and rules in Daenerys' stead with a council that includes Grey Worm and Daenerys' loyal subordinates. Daario, Jorah, and Tyrion are not members of the council because Daario is being held hostage by the Yunkai, while Jorah and Tyrion have not met yet with Daenerys. See more »


When Theon kills Myranda and he and Sansa escape Winterfell, Sansa's gloves disappear in several shots only for them to appear again seconds later, although it is a fast-paced scene with no intervals. See more »

The best finale it could ever get!!!
15 June 2015 | by manjaboss-92See all my reviews

By far season 5 was criticised for its adaptation outside the books and for lagging episodes. But the best at the end it could ever get! The chain of events unfold dramatically and yes artistically too. It just brings the emotion quotient hidden and makes one to think about the perfect evener called 'life'. Wonderfully scripted and screenplay is as good as it can get. I have been watching GOT right from the start, and this mega TV show is getting more and more exciting and popular . The queen mother temple scene is a perfect example wherein artists like lena are ready to indulge themselves for the tenacity of the show. It was just a pure classic is all i can say!
