Game Of Thrones Season 1 - Episode 5

"The Wolf and the Lion" is the fifth episode of the first season of the HBO medieval fantasy television series Game of Thrones, first aired on May 15, 2011. It was written by series creators and executive producers David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Brian Kirk.[2]

Game of Thrones Season 1 - Episode 5


With this episode the season hits its halfway mark and the action picks up considerably. Despite being a topic of discussion at King's Landing, Daenerys and Jorah Mormont do not themselves appear in this episode. Jon Snow and all characters on the Wall are also absent, and Robb Stark does not appear in Winterfell scenes. Accordingly, Emilia Clarke, Iain Glen, Harry Lloyd, Richard Madden and Kit Harington all have their names omitted from the opening titles. The Eyrie appears as a new location between King's Landing and Winterfell on the opening's map.

"The Wolf and the Lion" is the fifth episode of the first season of Game of Thrones. It is the fifth episode of the series overall. It premiered on May 15, 2011 on HBO. It was written by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, and directed by Brian Kirk.

More so than any other episode this season, the penultimate episode of the first season will take fans on an emotional rollercoaster as they witness the results of their earlier choices, whilst being forced to make tough new ones as they lead House Forrester into their final, no-holds-barred struggle for survival against House Whitehill.

If the ninth episode of the HBO show usually offers the season's big-budget battle, TellTale Games' fifth episode equivalent is spreading the combat out, and giving gamers a gut-wrenching choice. Even so, the sixth and final episode of the season will have to prove that the aforementioned choice will deliver gamers to truly different outcomes, rather than different paths to the same place. But for now A Nest Of Vipers does a great job in pushing forward all the plotlines to where they should be for the season finale, and it consistently entertains across all chapters.

Asher Forrester once again provided the best of the action this episode, though that isn't to say he was the only character who provided all the action. His plotline has come to a 'make it or break it' point in Essos, and gamers will find his story being pushed forward at a breakneck pace. His dialogue features some rare humorous moments in the episode, and it's a welcome change of pace from the no-nonsense dialogue that the rest of the characters present. His actions in this episode appear to heavily impact the upcoming season finale, and gamers should be on their toes to make sure he isn't making promises he'll regret later.

Far Northwest of Essos, Gared Tuttle's journey is finally approaching a climax after what seemed like plenty of awkward transitional episodes to get his character from The Red Wedding to somewhere near The North Grove. His part in the episode not only has plenty of interesting discussion, but also features entertaining quicktime sequences, more real-time archery, and a climactic closing that will leave fans eager to see what befalls Podrick Payne in the season finale.

The performances from all the HBO cast members continues to impress, with Peter Dinklage, Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey and Iwan Rheon all lending their likeness and acting chops to the episode. Their respective characters all dictate and control their scenes from start to finish, and have been a welcome addition to a series that h/"as done fairly well in voicing all the newly-canonical characters provided for the game adaptation.

The title of the episode still seems an odd choice, as its Dornish implications were nowhere to be seen in the episode. The achievements of the game are also based on the house mottoes for seemingly random Houses, although they have essentially nothing to do with the chapters that just occurred. It seems unfitting to see the words 'Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken' when describing the events of House Forrester, a house which has been arguably the opposite of all three of those things.

The final scene of the fifth episode will present gamers with undoubtedly the biggest decision they've faced in the game so far, and everyone will likely find themselves struggling to choose between two options that are heavily laden with pros, cons, and terrifying uncertainty. It is arguably the biggest choice seen within a TellTale title, and according to the current in-game statistics, there's a near 50/50 split between the two options, so it'll be interesting to see how each choice impacts the season finale. The changes between the two outcomes are sure to be drastic, and whether TellTale Games can please both crowds with the each choice's consequences has the potential to make or break what has been an outstanding first season so far.

This is even more impressive given that it was a Game of Thrones filming location! In season 4, episode 5, Arya and the Hound take a break from their lengthy hike at Gjáin, and continue the argument they are having. Arya also takes the opportunity to train with her sword.

When Jon and Daenerys ride the dragons in the first episode of season 8, after flying across wintery landscapes and through a gorge, they land next to a stunning set of multi-tiered ice coated waterfalls.

While the deaths of the other major characters ranks a bit higher, it was still rather surprising to see the nonchalant way that King Tommen (Dean-Charles Chapman) saw his end. As the youngest child of Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) and Cersei (Lena Headey), he was not nearly as cruel or as heartless as his older brother. A lover of kittens and simply just a nice kid, he became a casualty of the game of thrones after witnessing his mother blow up the Sept of Baelor. Watching his city in ashes, knowing that his queen was dead, Tommen took off his crown and walked right out of his window, falling to his death. Tommen was Cersei's remaining child and his death sent her deeper into despair and despotism.

We are officially halfway through the Game of Thrones spin-off. With only five episodes left, fans can expect the rest of the season to continue delivering episodes on a weekly basis. If House of the Dragon follows its usual schedule, this is when the final half of the season will air:

As Daenerys arrives to Slaver's Bay to meet the Unsullied, we see her in a blue gown with subtle scales embroidered in the fabric. The color of the piece is also meant to be a bit of tribute to the late khal, as Michele Clapton told Fashionista, "Blue was their special color. We decided that it was a rare natural pigment available to them in their region, so it's sort of her weird tribute to him." She repeats the look for several episodes of the season and the next, occasionally adding a cape and even a leather harness.

Here's what makes 2017 interesting: Game of Thrones won't be eligible this year; the majority of a show's season needs to have aired by the May 31 deadline to qualify for eligibility -- Game of Thrones won't even have started when nominations are announced. House of Cards got in just under the wire, dropping all of its episodes on May 30, but will Emmy voters have had a chance to watch it all? Downton Abbey is over, and Mr. Robot's second season didn't deliver on its promise. Homeland and The Americans are still going strong, so at least one will definitely appear in the category, but the path is largely cleared for a new wave of dramas. 041b061a72
