Here’s the episode by episode director lineup for Game of Thrones Season 7!

Months ago, Game of Thrones fans were astounded by HBO’s revelation of the list of directors involved in the filming of its upcoming seventh season. Ordinarily fans would have to wait longer but HBO decided to bend a few rules and get ahead of the curve. The lineup included:

  • Jeremy Podeswa
    • Game of Thrones : “Kill the Boy,” “Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken,” “The Red Woman,” “Home”
    • Prior fame: Boardwalk Empire
  • Mark Mylod
    • Game of Thrones: “High Sparrow,” “Sons of the Harpy,” “The Broken Man,” “No One”
    • Prior fame: ShamelessEntourage
  • Matt Shakman
    • Game of Thrones: Nothing—he’s new.
    • Prior fame: Mad MenFargoIt’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
  • Alan Taylor
    • Game of Thrones: “Baelor,” “Fire and Blood,” “The North Remembers,” “The Night Lands,” “The Prince of Winterfell,” “Valar Morghulis”
    • Prior fame: The SopranosThor: The Dark World

As we all know, this season will have only seven episodes, it was baffling to know that this list didn’t include fan favorite directors like:

  • David Nutter
    • Game of Thrones: “The Rains of Castamere,” “The Dance of Dragons”
  • Miguel Sapochnik
    • Game of Thrones: “Hardhome,” “Battle of the Bastards”

D&D decided to bring back workhorses like Mylod and added a complete newbie to the list, Shakman. The episode wise line up of directors will be as follows:

  • Episode 1: Jeremy Podeswa
  • Episode 2: Mark Mylod
  • Episode 3: Mark Mylod
  • Episode 4: Matt Shakman
  • Episode 5: Matt Shakman
  • Episode 6: Alan Taylor
  • Episode 7: Jeremy Podeswa
Here's the episode by episode director lineup for Game of Thrones Season 7! - Jeremy Podeswa
Jeremy Podeswa

Season 7 seems to hinge on Jeremy Podeswa a great deal, Podeswa has already shot several great scenes for season six. Scenes where, Brienne and Pod rescue Sansa and Theon from the Bolton soldiers. The fight sequence in this scene involving Brienne was pretty intense which shows that Podeswa can shoot action really well. Melisandre reveals her true face. Podeswa shows his talent of setting a mood here. Tyrion unchains Viserion and Rhaegal. There are no words to describe how phenomenal this scene was. Kudos to Podeswa for his imaginative direction. Jon Snow’s resurrection. Like the earlier scene with Melisandre, this one has a spooky, glum mood. Podeswa is terrific at these sorts of scenes. It would be exciting to see what he has in store for us in season seven.

Apart from Podeswa, Alan Taylor has directed the most memorable scene on the show – Ned Stark’s execution. Did the production bring Taylor back to do something equally remarkable? That’s an intrusive question we all need an answer to.
