HBO confirms Tom Wlaschiha in Game of Thrones Season 5 Episode 1
By David (Razor) Harris on March 8, 2015 in Casting.
Along with the recently confirmed but once rumored first 3
s Season 5 episode titles, there has been buzz aplenty that Tom Wlaschiha, the actor who portrayed Jaqen H’ghar in Season 2, would return to the cast for Season 5. However, until today, we only had a shaky IMDb page that rumored his return. Now, thanks to the official HBO schedule, we have confirmation!
See the entire official cast list for Episode 1, after the jump.
What we don’t know for sure is, will Mr. Wlaschiha be taking on his old name of Jaqen H’ghar, or will he take on anther name completely? The last we saw Jaqen, he had given the coin to Arya, and changed his face, before leaving her. More likely he will become the Kindly Man, who teaches and trains Arya through her new life in Braavos.
Spoilertv.com broke the unconfirmed synopsis for the first three episodes of Season 5, and Episode 1 is as follows:
“Episode #41: “The Wars to Come”: Cersei and Jaime adjust to a world without Tywin. Varys reveals a conspiracy to Tyrion. Dany faces a new threat to her rule. Jon is caught between two kings. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Michael Slovis.) (TV-MA) [AC, AL, GV, N] ESP Playdates: 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18 and 24″
Episode 2’s title actually makes more sense for the return of Tom Wlaschiha, as the title suggests where Arya is going. However, we could see a brief look at him in Episode 1, just to tease for Episode 2.
“Episode #42: “The House of Black and White”: Arya arrives in Braavos. Pod and Brienne run into trouble on the road. Cersei fears for her daughter’s safety in Dorne as Ellaria Sand seeks revenge for Oberyn’s death. Stannis tempts Jon. An adviser tempts Dany. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Michael Slovis.) (TVMA) [AC, AL, V] ESP Playdates: 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24 and 25″
“Episode #43: “High Sparrow”: In Braavos, Arya sees the Many-Faced God. In King’s Landing, Queen Margaery enjoys her new husband. Tyrion and Varys walk the Long Bridge of Volantis. (Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss; directed by Mark Mylod.) (TV-MA) [AC, AL, GV, N] ESP Playdates: 26, 27, 28, 29 and 30″

A couple of weeks back, we reported that Game of Thrones Season 4 DVD sales in the UK had smashed records. The US sales report the next week by Variety announced that …
The countdown to Season 5 ticks on. We\'re only five weeks away! That\'s 35 days until the premiere of Game of Thrones on HBO. (Or 36 days for you guys who watch …

So, episode 1 will have Kings Landing, Vale, Pentos, The Wall, Winterfell, Dorne, Meereen, Braavos and wherever Brienne is? In 53 minutes?
A part of me loves it, but another part of me is concerned that it’s a lot of places for only 53 minutes, but let’s see.
According to the schedule, he is also on episode 2, but Daniel Portman’s name is nowhere to be found, which is weird, because Gwendoline’s name is on both lists. Just saying that the list of caracthers is probably the main core (not main cast, tho) of the ten episodes (without Podrick, idky).
“In King’s Landing, Queen Margaery enjoys her new husband”
everyone is assuming he’ll be in Arya’s storyline, but what about
Pate and the citadel? just a tease of it, seems sorta important even if it seems like Sam and Gilly won’t be going there this season
I don’t think he will be in episode 1. Ep 2 is specifically titled House of Black and White and the episode synopsis mentions how Arya arrives in Braavos. So how would we see him in episode 1 unless they show him independently of Arya perhaps
killing Balon Greyjoy or at the Citadel in Oldtown finishing up whatever his mission was after he parted ways with Arya? We likely won’t even see Arya in episode 1, assuming her journey will be offscreen. I’m guessing the new season will pick up right where we left off so how can Arya make it to Braavos in 1 day?
Its interesting to see Diane Rigg on the list as she “left” Kings Landing in EP34, she could be hidden in the Godswood as many have theorized. We could also se her on High Garden or she could have just returned for Twyn’s Funeral. (prefer the first two)
Don’t write “Spoilers Below” in big black bold type, if the title and picture already spoiled it. Its just silly.
She was first confirmed by the trailer. She probably will have scenes Cersei and

Razor meant the synopsis as spoilers, not the fact Tom W. is coming back.
but Wlaschiha coming back is a major spoiler in itself. this is why Watcher’s on the Wall saw fit to forewarn when they posted the article.
There was a lot more information in the article than simply that regarding Tom Wlachila. I appreciate the synopses.
Honestly why do people come to this site if they don’t expect to find spoilers? Its a bloody GOT news site for fooks sake. Of course it will contain spoilers otherwise there would be no news at all and nothing to write about except going over old material. I mean its pretty bloody obvious that if you come to a site like this you will get new info about season five. Avert your eyes if your preciousness is so compromised. Boo boo!
I for one come here expecting news/spoilers and knowing this does not affect my enjoyment of the series. Just google GOT and you’ll come across dozens of spoilers every week.
Ok got that off my chest. I’m just mightily sick of people continually complaining about this for months on end. Such sensitive little petals. Oops here I go again.
I apologise if I offended anyone with my previous rant. Obviously some people feel differently about spoilers than I do and I need to respect that.
I’m very happy to see Tom in the cast for this coming season. Love his character.
WTF… remove the name and the picture (Major spoiler!)
No. Episode 1 (5) will have KL, The Wall, Meereen, Pentos and Boltons. (The listed cast is the same for every episode so Tom Wlaschiha will not appear here)
Episode 2 (7) KL, The Wall, Meereen, Dorne, Brienne, Sansa and Braavos. (This will be the only episode of the season who doesn’t feature Tyrion, also Episode 2 usually have all of the secondary storylines)
Episode 3 (6) KL, The Wall, Volantis, Dorne, Braavos and Boltons.
(No Meereen in this one because Episode 4 will feature a lot of Dany)
Episode 4 (7) I would say Meereen, KL, The Wall, Tyrion, Dorne, Sansa, Brienne.
There will never be more than seven storylines in a episode.
Maybe he won’t play as the kindly man since as per the synopsis they explain that Arya gets into Braavos in the 2nd episode….Most probably, he’ll play another role which could be in the book but we have not yet realised of his presence due to GRRM’s way of keeping the suspense….Ironically,The first episode of season 5 may actually be a spoiler alert for the book readers.
