Once again, GeeklyInc has broken the story of new episode titles for Game of Thrones season 5. We’ve checked with our sources, and they confirm that these are accurate. The titles for the episodes are:
Season 5, Episode 5: Kill the Boy
Season 5, Episode 6: Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken
Season 5, Episode 7: The Gift
“Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken” was one of the most popular choices for an episode title this year, in our survey a few weeks ago. The motto of House Martell is powerful, and the family is making a big splash this year, so it’s no surprise it is indeed an episode title in season 5.
“The Gift” was actually mentioned as a possible title as well in the survey. The Gift is a region near the Wall, but could also hold a double meaning, referring to the gift of mercy, and other gifts that hold significance in the episode.

It’s unclear if this is another case of the writers borrowing a name from the books a la Myranda to fit an unrelated character. It seems like it may be as
