Some brand-new filming pics from the fifth season of Game of Thrones have surfaced, revealing a big spoiler which hints at another departure from George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire book series.
The very nice behind-the-scenes images you can see below were taken inside Osuna’s bullring in Spain, which’ll double for Daznak’s fighting pit in Meereen in the HBO fantasy series.
In A Dance with Dragons, Dany (Emilia Clarke) marries Hizdahr zo Loraq (Joel Fry) so as to restore peace in Meereen and proclaims that the infamous fighting pits be closed. However, the Mother of Dragons is persuaded to reopen them for a final tournament in order to celebrate their wedding.
In the pics, we have a very nice look at Dany (who looks stunning in that white dress by the way) sitting side-by-side with new hubby Hizdahr zo Loraq, Missandei (Nathalie Emmanuel), Dany's boy toy Daario Naharis (Michiel Huisman)...[again, spoilers] as well as Ser Jorah (Iain Glenn) fighting in the pits (that’s a book departure right there) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage), who is seen sitting by Dany’s side on the dais (another departure).
So, what’s up? What’s happening? What in the Seven Hells is Tyrion doing there with Dany? What do you guys think about the way Season 5 seems to be shaping up and moving farther from the books?
