Okay, we are all getting ready for the new season of one of the most popular shows on television. Season five of Game of Thrones is coming to HBO on April 12, 2015 with a perspective of a number of characters. It has also been rumored that this season will either diverge from the books in The Song of Ice and Fire series or have parts of the tale that haven’t been written by author George R. R. Martin yet.
Though minor that they may seem to be, series directors Alex Graves, Michelle MacLaren, and Neil Marshall are not returning for the new season, nor is George R. R. Martin writing one episode as he has in the prior four seasons. The new format includes five directors in which they will direct two each back to back, a first for Game of Thrones. So there are some interesting changes it seems both behind and in front of the camera.
With season four having arrived on disc, Dark Discussions decides to recap the prior season in gearing up for the new season. In this first of a two part episode, our focus begins with the story lines of Daenerys Targaryen, Jorah Mormont, and the dragons. Also we focus on Brienne of Tarth, Podrick Payne, Arya Stark and Sandor “The Hound” Clegane and their adventures. Co-host Eric even makes a bold prediction of what he thinks may happen with the dragons.
