If the headline of this story weren’t enough to alert you: this is a post chockablock with spoilers for the upcoming fifth season of HBO’s Game of Thrones. I repeat: you will see things — as-yet-unseen things — that will give you a bit more insight into the upcoming journey to Westeros than the average bear. Heck, you’ll know even more than the book readers because it shows a serious divergence from what they’ve come to know and love as A Song of Ice and Fire.
So! We good now? OK well in that case, let’s go.
In Osuna, Spain, plenty o’ photos and videos are popping up in the real-world home for Dorne, including this one of Jaime Lannister meeting with Ellaria Sand and Areo Hotah in some seriously Dornish robes. This, for fans not in the know, is a bit of a divergent from what happens in the books. In fact, Golden-Hand-Man never once heads down that way in George R.R. Martin’s epic. Have no fear, though: the author is apparently on board for all the changes coming our way.
But that’s not all! (Because of course it’s not.) Several photos of the doings of the Dornishmen have appeared across the Internet, including our first look at Alexander Siddig in costume as Prince Doran Martell. He’s looking mighty fly for a guy who allegedly — at least in the books — has a bad case of the gout. But we suppose those sweet, sweet Dornish robes can mask far worse than a lil uric acid in the joints.
So — are you liking what you’re seeing? Let us know in the comments.
