We may only have one more week to go before the Game of Thrones Season 5 premiere, but that isn't stopping fans from obsessing over any little piece of intel they can get their hands on — including yours truly. As per usual, the writers remain relatively hush-hush about specific plot points, however, this season should prove to be especially surprising — even for book readers — given that George R.R. Martin himself has warned that "people are going to die who don’t die in the books," which is sure to cast a long, dragon-like shadow over our television screens these next 10 weeks. But before any of you start spiraling into a perpetual state of worry, I thought it would be useful to try and extract as many helpful clues as we can. And what better way to do that than by decoding the Game of Thrones Season 5 photos HBO has released? We may not know what exactly the future holds for the Iron Throne, but these photos could, at the very least, lend us a helping hand.
