The HBO Schedule has been updated with the season premiere of
providing a morsel of info. The episode title has not been revealed yet unfortunately, but it does display a running time of 53 minutes, which means that season five will tie season two for the shortest season opener.
The schedule entry includes standard warnings so in this episode we can expect Adult Content, Adult Language, Graphic Violence, and good old Nudity. Sounds like a typical episode of GoT, then.
In other news, several cast members chatted with
about where the show is headed now that many characters have run out of book chapters to work with.
Alfie Allen says that his storyline “really is one where nobody knows where it’s going to go,” but that he finds it exciting and terrifying. The actor says, “I try to get it out of David and Dan where it’s going to head, but they’re extremely tight-lipped… it’s more exciting than terrifying…but definitely a bit of both.”
Sophie Turner also finds it exciting, as the show has definitely used up all of Sansa’s story, and we don’t know what’ll be in
. She says, “And judging by the end of how season 5 ends, I think it’s going to be the most ambiguous thing ever what happens to her.” Intriguing!
“It’s nice to know that now everyone is on the same page,” Carice van Houten tells
“Nobody knows anymore. Like before in the make-up trailer, people would know a little bit more than we did… there were people who knew where it was going. Now everyone is on the same page.”

Happy birthday Sophie! (You can drink in Ontario now).
I wonder how much of the shows future storylines will be based on what GRRM plans for the next book and how much will be the show creators own stories.
I guess the show creators must be at least trying to make it tie into the next book?
