Game Of Thrones Season 5 Episodes 4-8 Titles & Synopses Officially released

gameofthrones15 24

HBO has officially released the titles and synopses for episodes 4-8 of Game of Thrones Season 5.

Some of the titles will ring bells for fans of Game of Thrones or the A Song of Ice and Fire novels. Episode 4 is titled “Sons of the Harpy,” after the faction that has been plaguing Dany’s rule in Meereen since the season began.

Episode 5 is titled “Kill the Boy,” which references a very specific conversation from A Dance with Dragons.

Maester Aemon offers the same advice on ruling and leadership to Jon that he offered to his younger brother, Aemon V, whom he called “Egg” and who was known for his innocence and sweetness, before he took the Iron Throne: “Kill the boy within you.”

Episode 6 is titled “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken.” These are the words of House Martell of Dorne.

Episode 7 is titled “The Gift,” most likely in reference to the Gift of the Many-Faced God.

Episode 8 is titled “Harhome,” which is the name of a settlement beyond-the-wall, which, without saying too much, will become important to certain storylines this season.
