Ep 82: The Wars to Come (Season 5, Ep 01)

Tonight was all about the season 5 premiere of Game of Thrones. First, we delve into Cersei’s flashback/daydream of her fortune regarding her reign and children.  Then we come into Tywin’s funeral and what his death means for Cersei, Jaime and the Lannister children. Tyrion arrives in Pentos, and after some witty banter, we find him and Varys bonding over finding Dany in Meereen. Could the change between the books and the show lead to a better ending, or a total catastrophe?
Speaking of Meereen, we not only find Dany and her Queendom, but a bloody uprising as well. Jon Snow and Stannis Baratheon share words, all while Melisandre tries to cast a charm spell on Jon. Sansa and Littlefinger leave Robin in the Vale to go for a “road trip”, but to where? We are not sure ... yet. Brienne contemplates where she should go after killing the Hound and losing Arya, Pod mentions The Wall, and though she wants him to leave her, we speculate he may not be leaving  any time soon.  Cersei meets a Sparrow from her past. Mance Rayder gets a choice: to kneel, or be placed to death by the Lord of Light. Jon takes mercy on Mance, shooting him in the heart instead of letting him burn. What could this mean for Jon and his future on the Wall? We also get to see dragons, but after being locked up for so long, they didn’t seem too happy about seeing their mother. 
We also went over some feedback from our generals
