While it has long been known that Season 5 of ‘Game Of Thrones’ will be loosely following ‘A Feast For Crows,’ the fourth book in George R.R. Martin’s ‘A Song Of Ice And Fire’ series, new information has confirmed that the Faith will feature strongly in King’s Landing, along with the Martells in Dorne.
Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss have finally confirmed that Season 5 will, indeed, take place in Dorne, but what of King’s Landing? Well, according to ComicBook.com, not only will the Faith be featured heavil yin Season 5, but Cersei (Lena Headey) will be taken down a few notches. Read on for more, but SPOILERS are below, obviously.
‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 5: The Faith Will Take Cersei Down
Now that Tyrion has left to sail across the Narrow Sea with Varys and Tywin is dead, Cersei enters Season 5 in a pretty powerful position. With her young son on the throne, she will basically be pulling the strings for all of Westeros. However, we learned in Season 4 that Margaery was doing her level best to get Tommen on her side — i.e. by being a beautiful, grown woman entering his bedroom at night and telling him to tell her all his secrets — and, according to new spoilers, the Faith will also feature in Season 5, which means that Cersei’s reign will come to an end soon after it’s begun.

As you might imagine, that’s not really Cersei’s bag — and Cersei and her incestuous family and her wrongful claim to the throne are not really the High Sparrow’s bag.
‘Game Of Thrones’ Season 5: Will The Tyrells Escape The Faith’s Wrath?
Soon, the Faith Militant will threaten to overthrow everyone in King’s Landing — not just the Lannisters, but the Tyrells, as well. However, given that Margaery has a knack for getting people on her side, and the fact that the Tyrells haven’t really done anything wrong — other than aiding in the whole murdering-Joffrey thing, which, who can blame them — we can assume that their place will be relatively safe and that hell will rain down on Cersei before it does on anybody else.
So, HollywoodLifers, what do you think? Are you looking forward to Cersei getting knocked down, or are you in disbelief that such a thing could even be possible? Do you think that the Tyrells will escape the Faith Militant’s
