Spring is coming, and that means the beginning of another season of Game of Thrones! Season 5 premieres on April 12, and the wheels of the promotion machine are turning. We recently saw a brand new trailer and now Entertainment Weekly (EW) is pulling back the curtain with their latest issue. It features 30 pages all about Westeros and comes with four different covers. One of these covers shows off Arya Stark’s new costume for the first time. You can actually see all of Maisie Williams’s face again! Look:
EW also shared this photo of her new duds:
Why is a different costume such a big deal? Arya’s basically worn the same thing since the end of Season 1. Besides changing her look, the threads signify a new life for Arya. When we last saw her, she was sailing to Braavos. Book readers have an idea of what’s ahead. Let’s just say she has some big changes coming her way in Season 5.
The other covers feature Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister). You know, most of your favorite characters in the series.
Showrunner David Benioff told EW that worlds are colliding. Characters who have been separated by the Narrow Sea will begin to cross paths. And as we’ve been hearing, characters who are still alive in the books by George R.R. Martin will die this season and storylines will follow different paths.
Who else is losing it over Arya’s new look? Share all your Game of Thrones feelings in the comments, just please don’t post spoilers from the books.
