#HoldtheDoor! and other #GameOfThrones Spoilers (in #LEGO)

Spoiler alert! I'm pretty sure this blog entry will spoil not only the first half of Game of Thrones Season Five, but also details from the current season of the show (Season Six). We might as well get most of it out of the way:

Jon Snow lives!

Hodor held the door.

The Children of the Forest created the White Walkers.

Bran can time travel.

There are only two Stark direwolves (the CGI-enhanced animals) left: Ghost (who's with Jon) and Nymeria (who has been missing in the Riverlands since Season One).

RIP Tonks, err, Osha. Not to be confused with Asha, who was renamed Yara. Speaking of renaming characters, Hodor's real name in the show is Wyllis, but in the books, his name is Walder.

Daenerys is fireproof.

Arya quit the Faceless Men.

Uncle Benjen is essentially a White Walker, but he's helping Bran.

No one dies in the sixth episode of the sixth season, except perhaps Dany must have fed her horse to Drogon off-screen.

Et cetera, et cetera. Let's spoil the first half of the fifth season now.

In "The Wars to Come," Mance Rayder is burned at the stake, but Jon Snow shoots an arrow to ease his suffering.

In "The House of Black and White," Jaqen H'ghar returns to the show, and begins Arya's training to become a Faceless (Wo-)Man.

In "The High Sparrow," Jorah Mormont abducts Tyrion Lannister.

It is Ser Barristan Selmy's last stand in the episode "Sons of the Harpy."

In "Kill the Boy," Viserion and Rhaegal share a Meereenese noble for dinner.

That's all the blogging I'll do in the month of May. I'll be sure to blog about the second half of Season Five (in LEGO) in June. I'll probably photograph LEGO scenes for Season Six after that! All this will first be on my Instagram, of course.
