HBO's television adaptation of George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire novels, Game of Thrones, has wrapped up its fifth-season run in dramatic fashion. You'll find no spoilers here, naturally, but the plotlines of several major perspective characters, including Jon Snow, Cersei Lannister and Daenerys Targaryen have arrived at the points they've been left hanging at in Martin's books. His fifth, and to date last, novel in a supposed series of seven, A Dance with Dragons, was published in 2011, the same year that the TV show began, and we've read nothing new since. Which puts showrunners David Benioff and D. B. Weiss in a pickle, specifically unless Martin really knuckles down, they're out of source material for 2016's inevitable season six.
The television show has taken a fair few narrative diversions throughout its run, and never more dramatically than it has across season five. Again, no spoilers, of the TV show kind at least, but several story threads that we've seen on screen played out very differently on paper, with established characters filling in for lesser ones who've not transferred from print to programme at all. It's clear to both fans of the pre-HBO lore and those who've only known Game of Thrones in moving pictures alike that Weiss and Benioff are far from afraid to muck about with the fates of audience favourites, regardless of Martin's original stories. Martin has written for the show, but hasn't a single creative credit on any season five episode, which may explain why season five has witnessed such unexpected drama, particularly during the final two hours of the penultimate episode.
A series exploring the lives and loves of a stereotypically barbaric group of Scandinavian pillagers may not have been what television was crying out for in 2013. Game of Thrones had seemingly perfected the magical-historical drama and competing endeavours such as Spartacus failed to live up. Benefitting from the ambiguous historical narrative of the period, creator Michael Hirst (The Tudors, Elizabeth) manages to fashion an engaging and multi-faceted plotline while also staging some cinematically glorious battles. Inspired by the tales about Ragnar Lothbrok, the legendary Viking chieftain, the series is set at the beginning of the Viking Age and follows the fearsome leader as he conquers Western Europe.
Season 3 of Vikings continues to develop and build on the conflicts created in its previous two seasons. Now king, Ragnar looks further west toward lands unconquered and explores the new world discovered during the raids of Season 2. However, threats to his fledgling position continue and deception is rife. Tensions continue to mount as Bjorn, shieldmaid Lagertha, Princess Aslaug, and Rollo each face conflicts of love and leadership. The clash between paganism and Christianity comes to a head in this season's journey as Floki grows more suspicious of Athelstan, who continues to tread the line between his Christian God and the Norse Gods. Refusing to fall back on gratuitous nudity and excessive violence, the series also declines to spell out certain plot twists. Vikings expects a lot from its viewers and as a result, the series is all the more authentic for it.
