A new synopsis for “Game of Thrones” Season 5 has been released and it clearly suggested that things are going to be so much tougher in Westeros.

According to HBO, “Jon Snow is struggling to balance the demands of the Night’s Watch with those of the newly arrived Stannis Baratheon, who styles himself the rightful king of Westeros. Meanwhile, Cersei resemebles to hold on to power in King’s Landing amidst the Tyrells and the rise of a religious group led by the enigmatic High Sparrow, while Jamie embarks on a secret mission. Arya seeks an old friend and a fugitive Tyrion finds a new cause. And as danger mounts in Meereen, Daenarys finds that her tenuous hold on the city requires hard sacrifices.”

This new synopsis promises danger that intrigues “Game of Thrones” fans. We know how danger is always a huge part of the show but as the it progresses, things are turning into a bloodbath and for sure the fifth season will be even bloodier as some of the characters become even more ruthless to gain power.

Aside from the synopsis, the summaries for the first three episodes have also been released. The first episode is titled “The Wars to Come” and it says, “Cersei and Jaime adjust to a world without Tywin. Varys reveals a conspiracy to Tyrion” Daenarys faces a new threat to her rule and Jon is caught between two kings. “
