    1. Forgive me?

      D&D have changed lines in the show before like “Your sister” instead “Only Cat”, what if Olly says “Forgive me” instead “For the watch”?

      It sure looks like it will be Olly working alone, and not a NW conspiracy since i don´t belive this kid can be the ringleader of anything…

    2. I’m interested in the storyline(s) that will use the songs Atonement and Forgive Me. Also I wonder what the last song will be used for? Throne for the Game is an interesting phrase…

    3. looks like they went with dracarys version for Dance of the dragons …i would have preferred if it was blood of the dragon or Mother of dragons version when dany meets drogon

      throne to game is intriguing

      Forgive me may also mean Varys scene

    4. Both Atonement and Mother’s Mercy gave me chills, if thats what they’re going to play during the Walk of Shame…it will be certainly be a powerful and haunting scene

    5. “Son of the Harpy”. Singular.

      Possible hinting of Hizdahr revealing his true allegiance to Dany before the harpies swarm into the arena next week?

      Here is my latest contribution to the alternative soundtrack:

      The night’s king’s version of “Don’t stop me now” (Hey someone had to give the guy lyrics)

    7. “Forgive Me” sounds familiar, actually. I’m trying to pin it down but I suspect it might be from a Theon & Sansa scene.

      Do we know anything about the last track, “Throne for the Game”? I like the vocalist.

    8. Andrew,

      i am having trouble picturing this scene ..he is with dany in the box and darrio is behind him standing and guarding ..

      if he reveals the truth it will take one swing from Daario to end the Hizdar’s monologue

      and we do know that hizdar doesnt make it into pit with others

    9. Among the pieces that we’ve heard so far on the show, my favorite is “Blood of the Dragon”. I’ve adored that track ever since I first heard it at the end of Episode 2. “Hardhome, Part 1″, “Hardhome, Part 2″, “Kneel for No Man”, and “Before the Old Gods” are standouts for me as well. But every track on this album sounds great! Ramin Djawdi can do no wrong.

      I believe the tracks that we have yet to hear this season are “Jaws of the Viper”, “Mother’s Mercy”, “Dance of Dragons”, “Atonement”, “The Wars to Come”, “Forgive Me”, and “Throne for the Game”. If they have already been used and anyone recognizes them, please speak up! Regardless, I’m looking forward to hearing full versions of them and seeing how exactly they fit into the show. A few are obvious, but there are still a couple that are a complete mystery to me.

      I was hoping the soundtrack would include a complete version of “The Dornishman’s Wife” as sung by Jerome Flynn. Alas, it was not to be. Oh well.

      Given that “Throne for the Game” is the last track on the album and contains strong elements of the main theme, I’m wondering if it could end up being similar to “For the Realm” from Season 3 – a piece that’s included on the soundtrack but doesn’t actually feature within the narrative confines of the show itself. If we get the full soundtrack next week and that song is only around 1:30 in length, that’s probably what it is. I certainly hope it will be included in the show, however, because it sounds amazing.

    10. I wonder if these dates are just for the States or worldwide? For the S4 soundtrack I swear we had to wait until July in the UK for it to be released.

      Also, no Bronn singing The Dornishman’s Wife? 🙁

    11. “The Wars to Come” at first sounded to me like

      Mel resurrecting Jon

      , but after listening again, and given the title, I think it’s likely to be the sacrifice of

      Shireen

      .

    12. I think different version of “Forgive me” was used last season in Dany/Jorah scene.Maybe there is some sort of connection with Dany, either it will be Jorah or Varys in King’s Landing.Of course Olly, Night’s Watch is another strong candidate.

      “Blood of the Dragon” is definitely about Dany meeting Khalasar.I wish this is the ending scene and final music.It would be perfect way to end this season.

      “Dance of the Dragons” sounds incredibly similiar to Dracarys moment.I guessing it’s that moment we’ve been waiting for.Dany’s first flight with Drogon.

    14. Great songs, as expected; Djawadi always brings it.

      The tracks I’m most intrigued by are “Forgive me” and “Jaws of the Viper”, because we don’t know where they might be used. The first one may be for Olly killing Jon, as some have pointed out, or some other moments too. The second one is the one I’m not sure about. The title clearly references Dorne but the whole tone of the piece is different. It’s probably for a big dornish moment but I’m not sure it has the “broadness” required for Doran’s masterplan revelation, so I’m not sure where it will be used.

        Quote  Reply

    15. Forgive me is actually the start of Ramsay’s redemption arc.

      Or it could be what that cocksucker Stannis says when he burns his freaky kid.

        Quote  Reply

    16. “Jaws of the Viper” could be

      Myrcella dying at the hands of Bronn or someone else (Ellaria? Maybe even Trystane?), or Bronn’s death. I don’t think Myrcella or Bronn will make it out alive at the end of the season. The track sounds mournful, suited for a death scene.

      As I mentioned in another thread, “Son of the Harpy” sounds like a weird mash-up of John Williams’ “Duel of the Fates” and the “Jawa” theme from Star Wars. Weird but awesome. This will probably play when the Harpy leader is revealed.

      Emmy for Ramin!

    17. Throne for the Game sounds incredible. I really wish they would use it. Something to do with the HS, perhaps?

      Blood of the Dragon is beautiful – we heard it at the end of 5.02, and it seems to be a Daenerys-Drogon theme. Hope it’s the end of the season track in 5.10.

        Quote  Reply

    18. For me this is an even greater test of willpower than the 4 leaked episodes were. I regularly find that Ramin Djawadi’s pieces are what make a “merely” sublime scene become truly unforgettable.

      I listened to the 30 second clip of Mother’s Mercy because I just couldn’t help myself, and I loved where that was going. Then I listened to about 3 seconds of Atonement before stopping it because it sounded like it was going to be incredibly good.

      That’s my lot.

        Quote  Reply

    19. Throne for the Game

      What could this title imply? Of someone who is playing the “game”?

      What if it it´s Varys killing Littlefinger or the other way around?

      Varys has no purpose anymore with fAegon gone and well lets face it LF can have Kevan killed, Queen of thorns even implied that if LF tries to kill her he would be offed also.

      By that little LF-QoT dialogue i get the feeling its the setup of LF killing Varys and Kevan at the same time.

        Quote  Reply

    20. For me, the highlights are Blood of the Dragon, High Sparrow, and Dance of Dragons. Blood of the Dragon was stunning when I heard it in E2 and I’ve been hoping it would be on here!

      As far as Forgive Me, it just doesn’t sound like what we would hear for

      Ollie killing Jon? I’m expecting maybe silence for the stabbing and a very toned-down, sad version of the Wall theme or the Winterfell theme for his “death.” It sounds like a popular theme they’ve used for KL stuff before, so I think this would be a great choice for Varys/Kevan. As far as that scene not being “impactful,” I never felt Kevan was a major character in the books, either. What made the chapter great was the official arrival of winter, for the show the return of an MIA Varys, the dismantling of the Lannister empire and those creepy kids. I can also totally hear Conleth Hill saying “forgive me” here. It could be any number of scenes, though, but my bet is not on Ollie/Jon.

      “Jaws of the Viper” is the same as “Kill them All” from s1 when Robb and Cat are crying about Ned’s death, so I’m definitely expecting a death or two in Dorne. We know they won’t kill Jaime and unless they try to play up Myrcella as being relevant or a major character, I’d say the only death that warrants this music here is Bronn.

      Throne for the Game is lovely.

      And while my bet is that this will be another “For the Realm” extra-type song, I think this would make a stunning season-ender credit track if they end on Jon’s death. I dont believe we will see him resurrected this season, but I could certainly be wrong. I definitely think “for the watch” will still happen, though, as there’s been so much setup. As far as ending with Daenerys meeting the Dothraki, I think this is a cool moment but the average viewer will care far less about Dany ending up back in the Dothraki Sea than they will about Jon “dying.” Plus, we’ve never heard finale music that was already used previously in the season, so I doubt Blood of the Dragon will end epi 10.

      Apologies, spoiler coding never seems to behave for me.

    21. Game of Thrones has the best soundtrack of any TV show imo. Many shows have great soundtracks but they use already existing music for the most part and only have a small amount of ost, the thing about GoT on the other hand is that every single bit of music on the show is original and was created for the show. Ramin Djawadi is a genius and props to him for creating such a magnificent soundtrack year after year.

        Quote  Reply

    22. The best are definately the Hardhome tracks, that’s what made that episode really tense and scary. I hope he continues to write more creepy stuff like this in future scenes.

    23. What i like most are three sad songs that were not used yet. Jaws of the Viper, Forgive Me, Throne for the Game. It looks like the end of the season will be very joyful! I expect all related events to this songs will happen during the finale.

      I am little dissapointed about missing Dornishman´s wife. Also i would not mind a full version of that Orientalist seduction fantasy theme from Tyene´s scene.

    24. I don’t think the season will end with

      Jon’s death

      . The writers have said that the last scene is a scene from the books.

      Carice has said she has another big scene with Jon this season. I doubt that scene will happen before Jon’s stabbing. If there is a resurrection-type scene, it can’t be from the books.

      My guess for the last scene is either

      Dany encountering the khalasar, although I doubt this considering it was mentioned in the ep description

      or

      Varys killing Kevan and Pycelle

      . “Forgive me” seems like the sort of thing

      Varys would say before offing them.

      I can’t see Olly saying that.

      I’m thinking Jaws of the Viper will be in 5×09, since I imagine the Dorne storyline for 5×09 will be wrapped up then.

      Doran and Ellaria kiss and make up, Jaime and Myrcella head back to KL, badda bing, badda boom.

      I don’t see Myrcella dying, since she hasn’t been crowned yet, and in fact, there was no “crowning” plot mentioned in relation to her storyline. I have trouble believing Bronn will get the chop, either, after the death fakeout earlier this season.

    26. Actually, on a second listen, I’m realizing “Forgive Me” is the track used multiple times in King’s Landing in S1, but it’s also the track they were using for the HoBW at the beginning of this season. I can’t imagine Arya saying “Forgive Me” to

      Meryn Trant,

      but I suppose it could be used for something else in her arc?

        Quote  Reply

    27. Nice! “The Atonement” sounds like a “RoC” cover, but very somber, haunting and eerily beautiful at the same time. “Jaws of the Viper”, very sad, considering the title, sounds like a death scene. I like where “Mother’s Mercy” is heading. “Son of the Harpy” almost sounds triumphant, like a big reveal for a character who has just made a big statement.
      “DoD” nothing more needs to be said. I’ve heard to much already, causing my mind to theorize all sorts of scenes to match the music.

        Quote  Reply

    28. The way I’m thinking about it is

      Jon’s death isn’t something they can just shove at the beginning of the episode and expect people to move on and focus on other, far less impactful things for the remainder of the episode. I also don’t see Mel resurrecting Jon this season because a) I don’t see D&D wanting to spoil something that massive from the books, b) his death and resurrection would both be diminished greatly by shoving them into one episode, and c) his resurrection seems fairly pointless if we don’t have any idea about Azor Ahai/R+L=J in the show at this point. It would seem like a cop-out if we thought that Jon was dead but, lo and behold, for no apparent reason he’s risen from the dead 20 minutes later. It is certainly possible that “for the watch” won’t take place at all this season, but it doesn’t seem like the sort of thing they would do within the first couple episodes of season 6, and there’s been so much setup for it this season (to the point that I’m not sure how Unsullied haven’t all figured it out) that I don’t see them delaying it until S6.

      I’m just curious what the consensus is about this. Do must people think nothing will happen at all with Jon this season, that we’ll see his death as an early plot point in epi 10, or that he’ll die and be resurrected as Azhor ahai in 10..?

      Varys has plenty of possible purposes.

      Even if Aegon is not included next year, then the show can still have Varys do the same things that he does in Winter (whatever those things might be) but for Daeny.

    31. JTargs,

      Some of us don’t think that

      Jon is going to die and be resurrected. Some of us think instead that Mel will heal Jon before he dies. Just because we have not seen that specific magic from Mel, we should not discount that she can do it given her general power (which is enhanced at the Wall, she claims) and given that she’s suspected that something like this will happen for a while.

      Remember also that GRRM himself has confirmed that the returned people aren’t quite the same as they were. However, Jon is the #1 protagonist (along with Daeny): the story is more about those two characters than anything else. So, throwing away 4 stories of character development (particularly in a story that he did not originally intend to write!) would seem wasteful.

        Quote  Reply

    32. M,

      I dont think Dorne will be wrapped in the episode 9. If it were, literally nothing would happen during whole Dornish storyline. Jaws of the Viper doesnt sound as wrapping the storyline peacefully type of song. It is a sad song that seems to be related to someone´s death.

      And GoT is written by same guys who added Talisa and her unborn child to RW, and prematurely killed Barristan, Grenn and Pyp just for certain storylines/scenes to have greater impact on the viewers. So yeah, someone will die in Dorne.

    35. Wimsey,

      Yeah, I agree with you on that second bit. I’ve been really worried that

      he won’t return as himself. However, I do think that the entire point of him “dying” is that with death, he’s released from his vows to the NW and therefore can eventually act on being a throne claimant, among many other things he isn’t able to do as a NWman. Also, I think there’s been a lot of precedent set for bringing characters back from the dead for a reason. Plus in S3, Mel meets BWB and learns that she might have the power to bring people back from the dead. There just seems like an awful lot pointing at his resurrection. Would I rather he’s just healed and survives as the same Jon as always? Absolutely, but I think it’s unlikely.

      No, it isn’t. It’s a much stronger, more positive sounding Stannis/Mel theme in that scene, not the slow/sad version in Wars to Come.

      She admits to sleeping with Lancel (and Kettleblack in the books), but its after King Robert’s death, so her punishment is the penance walk. For the other charges, she agrees to go to trial

    38. Mother’s Mercy is clearly the Lannister theme (Rains of Castamere), referring to Cersei. Or it could be Jaime or Myrcella. If she is in the finale, Myrcella could be at the mercy of a mother, Ellaria.

      I first thought Forgive Me is Jorah’s theme. Last season, there was a track with similar title, and that for Jorah. But this one is not Jorah’s.

      Could be Theon’s final redemption in front of the heart tree, or the NW killing Jon.

      Before hearing the samples, I was thinking Maester Aemon gets 3 tracks? (He was the blood of the dragon, now his fire has gone out’, Kill the boy, I dreamed that I was old). But blood of the dragon is definitely not for Aemon. Either Dany, Jon or Shireen. Even Tyrion, perhaps.

      Somehow I feel ‘Jaws of the Viper’ has a Northern ring to it. Too sad. If its really Dornish, it means a death.

    40. Lion of Night,

      Yeah, it was.

      I hope “Before the Old Gods” has a second part we haven’t heard yet. I’m not actually listening to the samples because it’s like an “emotion spoiler”, but based on the titles, the only other songs that could be a godswood-redemption song for Theon are “Atonement” and “Forgive Me”. But the former could easily be about the Sparrows (perhaps “Mother’s Mercy” will comprise the entirety of the Sparrow soundtrack, but I’m not too sure about that); and a lot of people seem to think the latter is For the Watch. So I dunno.

      Maybe the godswood scene (if it exists) will just be completely silent. That could work. But Ramin Djawadi has done great songs for Theon before so I’d like to hear him do it again.

      The whole prologue to ADWD set up what would happen with Jon. As did the vision Melisandre sees of him. Jon will die, but his mind will live on inside of Ghost, and then return to his resurrected self. So while he may be a bit more feral from spending time inside the mind of a direwolf, he should retain most of his former self.

      Rephrase that: the prologue could be a setup for that. But it also was a setup for what we see happening with Bran. Indeed, it is more satisfactory for Bran:

      we get no indication that wargs can jump from animals into other people or “rebody” after their original body dies. If that had been done, then I would agree with you: but as it wasn’t, it really did not provide a setup for this scenario.

      I hope so, but remember many of us listened to “Oathkeeper” last year and said the exact same thing. Seriously, I thought the build up and release in that song was perfect for her.

      separate thought:

      I’m starting to think “Kill the Boy” has a ‘part two’ which we haven’t heard yet, and that’s what will be used in For the Watch. Lots of Djawadi’s songs are structured like that, such as “Reek” and “First of His Name”.

      I’ve listened to “Forgive Me” (I said I wouldn’t listen to any of these but a complete failure in willpower has transpired), and I think that’s actually for Winterfell.

Result next day: Stannis’ camp is even more demoralized, more troops want to leave, horses are badly spooked. This precipitates whatever Stannis ends up doing in Ep. 9 and especially 10. It will be all Stannis’ decision, but it will have been precipitated by Ramsey Bolton.
      Not sure – but this may end up being a totally masterful way of bringing all the northern storylines together for the last two episodes: Stannis and the Dragonstone crew, Brienne and Pod, Ramsey, and the effect of it all on Jon Snow. And it may end up reducing some of the cast for Season 6.
      Can’t wait to see it all unfold…. 😀

      Anyone noticed the hidden frame in the e9 preview? Things aren’t looking to well for Stannis and his men:

      Wow, that’s curious… the fires seem to be starting from quite distant places. Did Ramsay divide his forces to sneak in different sections of the camp ? Or is some ritual turning to hell ?

      Nice! “The Atonement” sounds like a “RoC” cover, but very somber, haunting and eerily beautiful at the same time. “Jaws of the Viper”, very sad, considering the title, sounds like a death scene. I like where “Mother’s Mercy” is heading. “Son of the Harpy” almost sounds triumphant, like a big reveal for a character who has just made a big statement.
      “DoD” nothing more needs to be said. I’ve heard to much already, causing my mind to theorize all sorts of scenes to match the music.

      “Jaws of the Viper” needn’t be a death scene. Could be

      SS BJ?

    51. Throne for the Game sounds like it could be the song that ends the season. It sounds like the one they used last year.

    52. TFT,

      I dunno if you’ve read the books. You probably have but, yeah, if you haven’t just don’t click on this.

      It could be Arya. But I would argue it sounds more like the sort of music that would play as Theon slowly walks into the godswood and stares up at the ancient, foreboding face of the weirwood tree. I think the song would ease into something a little more emotional during the confession/apology itself, but what we get in this sample sounds powerful, and sort of primeval in a way that makes me think it’s about visiting the Old Gods. Also, it’s a little dark, and that would be fitting if the scene was preceded by one, final act of sadism or indignity at Ramsay’s behest. Finally, something powerful stirs inside of Reek, and the audience knows something eventful is about to happen.

    53. The best and most exciting sounding one is the final track with the vocals–though I suspect it won’t appear on the show, like the extra tracks on the S3 soundtrack. But there’s a lot of exciting-sounding music cues we haven’t heard yet, so it looks like Ramin will be hard at work for the final two episodes (as always).

      The Hardhome music, once isolated, sounds a lot like Brian Reitzell’s cues in ‘Hannibal.’

    54. GaiusB,

      I feel like we have to remember that these are just samples of whole tracks? like ‘the house and black and white’ is significantly better in full form. That may also be the case for ‘jaws of the viper’, so it could start out sounding mournful but it doesn’t necessarily have to remain that way so I wouldn’t ~expect~ a death I suppose… [even though Dorne could definitely use something exciting]

    55. Hey, I’ve just realised than in past seasons the final track had the same name as the episode(Mhysa, The Children). SO if Mother’s Mercy was the final track (which would problably mean that it´s not refered to Cersei´s storyline, unless it is unfoiled in the last scene, which I don´t think so), what final scene could have an intense haunting theme, which would leave us shocked enough to break the internet (as Portman said) AND the theme played while the scene is happening is called Mother’s Mercy?

      Yes, you know the answer 😉

      we do see him killing the harpies and surrounded by them in the trailer …
      he do love her in his own way ..i dont think he is going to betray her ..he is as simple as you can get

    57. LordGriffith,

      Mother’s Mercy features the motif of Rains of Castamere aka almost surely a reference to a certain Lannister (Pretty sure its never been used for any Starks) sorry ><

    58. Geralt of Rivia: “Dance of the Dragons” sounds …

      Dany’s first flight with Drogon.
      more like when drogon lands & has a bbq

      RandomSand: The title clearly references Dorne but the whole tone of the piece is different. It’s probably for a big dornish moment but I’m not sure it has the “broadness” required for Doran’s masterplan revelation, so I’m not sure where it will be used.

      The 3rd marriage? Myrcella & Tristan

    59. Lollius Palicanus,

      I hope the track from the Sand Snakes scene is included; that was an excellent expanded version of Oberyn’s theme. This track sounds like it’s based on “A Bird With No Feathers”, though.

    60. Jennie,

      Sounds like it’s the new theme for Arya this season. It was already released as “Winter Is Coming” on the first soundtrack. Hard to tell from that sample though.

    61. JTargs,

      “Jaws of the Viper” is actually the theme from “A Bird Without Feathers”, which (with not having read the book) reminds me more of Myrcella.

    62. Jim,

      That explains why I thought “Forgive Me” had to do with Winterfell, but you’re right, we’ve also heard it with Arya. The latter didn’t occur to me because the House of Black and White has had a couple of other really distinctive themes. I think the track could be about either storyline, though I’m leaning towards Winterfell.

    63. I was really hoping they would include Bronns Version of the Dornishmans wife, since you know…
      he´s got a good voice.

      I have no idea if -in the past- they included The Nationals Rains of Castamere or Shireens I know, i know. Maybe they wait for a full The Songs of Ice and Fire release, which would also be very welcome, as far as i´m concerned.

    64. Anyone think Forgive Me is the scene of Dany & Jorah?

      Last season, the banish scene in 408 use a song named Forgive Me for Dany & Jorah.
      And in this season, the second banish scene between Dany & Jorah in 508 has the SAME tune as the sample of Forgive Me here.

      I remember it start from the moment when Dany ask Tyrion what should she do with Jorah as she had promised she would kill him if he came back.

      I don’t think the season will end with

      . The writers have said that the last scene is a scene from the books.

      My guess for the last scene is either

      or

      . “Forgive me” seems like the sort of thing

      I can’t see Olly saying that.

      You’re misquoting Clarice. She said there is another ‘big Jon moment’ in the show but never specifically said it was with her.

    66. I really like Blood of the Dragons! Esp, when the choir hums my fave part. Like total awesome theme when Dany flies with Drogon or when she triumphs over something.

      I Dreamed I Was Old – Theme when Maester Aemon said “Kill the boy, Jon Snow”. Sounds so regal some parts look like a background music for a solemn coronation.

      Forgive me is actually the start of Ramsay’s redemption arc.

      Or it could be what that cocksucker Stannis says when he burns his freaky kid.

      I fucking called it.
