That’s a wrap (party)!

On November 29, Crumlin Road Gaol in Belfast played host to the wrap party for Season V of Game of Thrones. The former prison seems like an ominous (if cool) backdrop for a celebration- but, seeing as it’s Thrones, we should just be happy that cast and crew seem to have all made it out of the party alive.

Filming is scheduled to continue through this month, thankfully, undaunted, now that they’ve gotten the partying out of the way.

More news after the jump!

A Telltale Part One Trailer

Telltale has released a trailer for the first of six episodes planned for their Game of Thrones companion game. It sheds some light onto House Forrester’s allies and enemies in addition to giving us closer looks at Margaery, Cersei, Tyrion, and Ramsay. The first episode is set to drop on December 2.

    1. Makes sense to me. That didn’t look like a set suitable for GOT in any shape or form. Can we get pics of the party?

      Anyway, reposting this picture from the last thread here:

      The fires and the ropes in the trees made some people think of

      LS

      , but seriously, isn’t Melisandre far more likely at this point?

      Consider this:

      Carice van Houten is still filming as of right now (while we have no news on Brienne/Pod)
      Season 5 could use some interaction between the priestess and the wildlings (this could be a set for the Haunted Forest)
      Fire is a constant in her storyline (As to the objects in the trees, they could be wildling elements and patterns like those we saw in seasons 1 and 3)

      Maybe it’s just me hoping to see Mel head North, but I think this is feasible. Been dying to see that since ASOS.

    2. azor ahai,

      The problem with that image is that there is no source for it and no context to it. We can’t prove that it has anything to do with GoT in the first place, let alone any particular storyline.

    3. Nothing new under the sun from Wales Comic Con. More stories about set pranks, vague allusions to season 5 (“the biggest yet”) and another dodged

      question (the reply this time was “Wait and see”). Beattie in particular a riooot throughout.

    4. James Rivers,

      Are they broadleaf trees? If so then no, if it’s anything like Manchester (which it is) they start dropping leaves at the end of August and are usually bare by the end of October.

      ?
      Even if “it” turns up, I think that particular bird has flown. It would have been a truly epic final scene for the last season, but the fan reaction to it not appearing and the spoilering that has happened on the internet since means it’ll have no-where near the impact. You could argue the same about Ned’s death and the Red Wedding, but the fans were keeping quiet about that as much as possible, whereas with this subject they’ve been venting pretty freely, and major news organisations have carried the story.

      I’m more concerned myself with the absence of the

      Griffs and Manderley

      , who I thought a cert to be in after Wendel showed up at the RW.

      I think you really heavily overestimate the amount of fans that actually go on the internet for daily GoT news. Besides, it’s not as if that would in any way influence D&D’s decision to include it in the show or not.

    7. Abyss,

      There’s already walkthroughs of the whole game on youtube btw, if you’re really cheap like myself and want to see what happens in the game without having to buy it…hehehehehe

    8. How do we know this a GOT ‘wrap’ party?
      Is that a cast member on the steps?
      It could just be a party with someone flying a Lannister flag.

    9. Greenjones,

      Hell no, I’m going to play this! 😀 I was just looking for a quick assessment of the game, mainly to see if there are any game breaking bugs or if it really sucks.

      Because they wouldn’t have posted it as a certainty if that picture was their only source?

    11. Boojam,

      Someone posted in comments yesterday that there had been filming at Crumlin Road Gaol. When I looked into it (just a quick twitter search for that phrase) it turned up a bunch of tweets and instagram posts from attendees. There wasn’t anything of note other than the fact that the party had occurred at that location. I didn’t feel the need to post a bunch of random tweets or pictures of non-celebs.

      Well ok, but what ‘celebs’ or rather cast were there?
      I believe there is another week of filming, of course the cast does not need to be there for that, maybe.
      Seems team-Dorne left five days ago, besides Rosabell Laurenti Sellers ( no tweet from her) ,Jessica Henwick and Keisha Castle-Hughes who in Dorne crew was in Belfast too? Seems to have been extended Wall and North shooting in November, makes sense, but should have been KL, Meereen, Winterfell, Braavos (think we got an indication of that) Vale interiors , of course some of that could have been done in Sept. and October when attention was on Croatia and Spain.
      Most NI stuff in radio silence, it usually is.

    13. Manderlys,

      “Wait and see”? Seriously? That sounds like

      Michelle Fairley’s comments before she was cornered by the press

      (“You’ll just have to keep watchiiiiing”). It’s so painfully obvious

      LS

      is in.

    14. Related to the Rattleshirt detail, I’m really surprised there have been no “Froggy” posts from Martin for this season. I’m still hoping (probably in vain) for a Manderly one, because if Martin was doing one, it would probably be for a majorish role.

      I guess the lack of it is a combination of not that many big roles being cast for this season and those that were cast being announced by HBO itself.

      I went to it and there weren’t many of the cast there. I saw Liam, Carice, Kerry Ingram and Brenock O’Connor. There are some photos on Kerry’s Twitter

      Dan Weiss, Bryan Cogman and David Nutter were also there.

    16. Lionheart,

      I’d like to think so. Otherwise, there’s some major trolling going on.

      I wonder, that one spoiled plot detail about Brienne meeting (and being rejected by) Sansa. Is that legit? (IIRC the same source also spoiled Jaime-in-Dorne stuff).

      If it is legit, I’d imagine that is the climax of Brienne’s arc for the season.

    17. Jordan,

      I seriously doubt Sansa’s rejection of Brienne will act as Brienne’s season 5 climax. That sounds like a lamer version of Brienne being rejected by Arya, and it would also get very repetitive. I think the Brienne-Sansa meeting you mention is rumored to happen in episode 1 or 2, so very early in the season. This enables Brienne to go back to the Riverlands before the end of the season and have her climax from the books.

      What I wanted to know.
      Boy! David Nutter, that guy gets extra pay this year, he has episodes 9 and 10, but has been in Croatia, Spain and Northern Ireland , he needs a party!
