Inside "Mother's Mercy"

Season 5 of Game of Thrones is over, but HBO hasn't left us without their bonus videos.  For this weeks episode, "Mother's Mercy", we have 3 bonus videos.  The first of the videos is David Benioff and Dan Weiss going inside the episode and breaking down key scenes from the episode.  Next we have George R.R. Martin talking about Cersei's walk of atonement.  And finally we have Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Nell Tiger Free, and Indira Varma talking about Myrcella's farewell.

New Season 5 Images and Videos

The world premiere for Game of Thrones season 5 was last night, and during the premiere HBO released a few new HD stills and clips.  

Above we can see the first images of Toby Sebastian (Trystane Martell) and Nell Tiger Free (Myrcella Baratheon).  This is the photo that stood out the most to me, since its our first official time seeing the pair together.  

Check out the other photos and video clips below.

So do you have a favorite photo out of the bunch?  If so let me know which one, and why!  Just a few more weeks until the season premiere of season 5!

Myrcella Baratheon Recast

Myrcella Baratheon Recast

From HBO's video Season 5 - New Cast Memberswe saw that the first recast had happened.  Last season we had several recasting's, even our second recast for a single character (The Mountain).  But for this season the new face of Myrcella Bartheon will be the actress Nell Tiger Free.  Nell Tiger Free has appeared in Mr.Stink, as well as an episode of Endeavour. For those of you who forgot Myrcella was last seen in season 2 getting on a ship to sail to Dorne.  Mycella was betrothed to Trystane in a marriage alliance between House Martell and House Lannister.  With the recent events in Kings Landing, with Oberyn's duel, you can expect there to be some tension in Dorne.   Myrcella's role in season 5 is explained a bit more in HBO's press release:

Myrcella Baratheon is officially the eldest child of Cersei Lannister and the late King Robert Baratheon, though in truth her father is Cersei’s own brother, Jaime Lannister. For years, she has been a guest and ward of Prince Doran, betrothed to his son, but her position has become tenuous with the death of Oberyn Martell, the Prince’s brother.
