Cue the "Game of Thrones" theme song.

The highly anticipated premiere of the fifth season of "Game of Thrones" is almost here and we cannot wait! There are a million stories to be excited about this season, (naturally, it's "Game of Thrones") so we narrowed it down to just three things that we are beyond psyched to see play out on screen.


1.) There will be dragons.​

Thanks to the season five poster, we KNOW there will be a great deal of dragons. In the past four seasons, we have seen these "loveable" creatures grow from legitimate eggs, to angsty adolescence, to full fledge adults. Poor Khaleesi has been with them every step of the way. As they grow older, they are embarrassed of their mothers. However, in this season, the dragons seem to have approached their mid-twenties, the age where they have started to appreciate what their mother has done for them. All in all, there will be dragons and we can hardly contain our excitement.

2.) Kingdoms finally collide.

For the past four seasons, all of the families have been separated. Westeros is a crazy place.

First, you have House Stark. The poor Stark family has lost a great deal of members, and now depends on just a few. Jon Snow needs to either finally conquer that wall or take a day off. Sansa is finally on the rebound after escaping Joffrey, but probably not for long. Then we have Arya, who needs a buddy after all that alone time without the Hound. All in all, the Starks are in bad shape per usual.

Next, we have House Targaryen. The only true Targaryen in this family is Princess Daenerys, especially since the others are pretty much dead. Daenerys wants to rule everything this season, and we are not opposed. She wants to skip the whole breaking bread with her neighbors stage, and simply wants to break the wheel.

Then, we have House Baratheon. The Baratheon's lost their leader to a spiked drink. King Joffrey was a character we all loved to hate, but now they have his little brother to take over, Tommen Baratheon. Only in Game of Thrones are there individuals who rule land that are barely old enough to get their driving permit.

Last, but definitely not least is House Lannister. Complete with Tyrion, Jaime, Cersei and their father Tywin, Lannister is as complicated as they come. All four of the Lannisters are complex people and look to have a very interesting season. Will Cersei become even crazier? Can Tyrion gain the trust of his family back (although, it doesn't seem he cares)?

3.) When will winter come?

The entire series has been dependent on the phrase, "Winter is Coming." This season, winter better arrive. Is it too much to ask for Jon Snow just to say, "Winter is here, y'all" or for Tyrion to mount a dragon holding a flag telling us when it will arrive. These don't seem too outlandish, do they? Also, does anyone else find it strange that they proclaim winter is coming and the series is released in the spring? Imagine the promo roll out in mid-November! Streets lined with the first fallen snow, complete with posters of dragons and swords, it's so romantic.

All in all, hopefully you are as excited as we are for season five of "Game of Thrones." In case you need a refresher, here is a picture of the family tree, because let's face it, you know you will.

Be sure to check out the premiere on HBO this Sunday, April 12, at 9pm. And remember..."Winter is Coming"...(soonish, maybe?).
