This season premier episode of Game of Thrones was called pretty good. It was no season 4 finale, or The Mountain and the Viper, but it was still very good.
This episode seemed to set up a bit of what is to come. We see that Cersei has known per a witch all along that she would be Queen, Apparently she was first promised to Prince Targaryen, but after the Mad King went, well, all mad, and the prince died, that alliance fell through. This was foreseen. It is also foreseen that she will lose her reign to someone younger.
Everyone keeps thinking this is Margaery. However, have we not thought of Daenerys?
Cersei seems to be having a tough time with the loss of her father. I'm curious to see where this goes. One thing hasn't changed though, she wants Tyrion dead.
Tyrion though, is very much alive in the house of Illyrio. Honestly, couldn't some of these names be a little bit easier? It is too much to keep everything straight. Just for my simple recap and thoughts blog I have had to go to the wiki 1000 times. This also costs me productivity time because I get lost on reading up on these characters. I have not read the books, so I find that the Game of Thrones wiki is super-duper helpful. I thank you Game of Thrones wiki. You guys are great.

Lastly, we get to Daenerys. She is still trying to figure out how to actually rule before she tries to take the iron throne. How very idyllic of her. She's not doing a great job as the Queen and she knows it. She is learning, what a lot of Queens and Kings learn (think of Robert Baretheon), that winning a war is a lot easier than ruling a people. She feels like she liberated the people and that should be enough, but it's not. Now there is an insurgency of her own. There are unhappy slaves, the last people she thought would be unhappy.
Then there are her dragons.
