15 details you might have missed in Game of Thrones season 7 episode 5: Eastwatch - Jon Snow Daenerys

Game of Thrones has been a lot in the news this year since even before season 7 kicked off. And with such a massive opening to an epic show of it’s kind, none would be surprised if we said that another record has been broken. Just last week, episode 4 of season 7, The Spoils of War, came out and gathered as many as 10.167 million views in one fluent stroke. But this time, even that viewership has been surpassed. Episode 5, ‘Eastwatch’, broke the record by getting 10.72 million live viewers. The season premiere itself saw a massive opening of 10.11 million viewers.

If this is anything to go by, there are chances that the final two episodes of season 7 are going to be even bigger. Although ‘The Spoils of War’ was actually leaked before it’s official release, it didn’t stop the episode from gaining that many more viewers. And given the fact that it ended on a major cliffhanger, there really is no surprise that people were eager to watch the next episode as soon as it came out. Season 7 has been going pretty well so far with a lot of significant changes and developments alongside the characters and plots finally being tied up together to lead up to the big ending that awaits us all. With so many viewers still teeming in to watch the episodes despite the possible leaks and hacks, it really says something about the popularity of Game of Thrones all over the world.

It remains to be seen how many more viewers the show will gather in the last two episodes which are supposed to be quite promising in terms of epic-ness.

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8 shows another brutal character death

Game of Thrones deleted scenes have been pouring out on the internet, now that the full series disc sets are here. We have reported about a couple of them, including one that showed Daenerys get the northern hate. The one we have today, comes from IGN, and it shows a death scene that was skipped from the episode, likely because the character isn’t considered that important. Read on!

Now, the character we’re talking about here is Alys Karstark, and the episode in question is Season 8, Episode 3, “The Long Night”. This deleted scene shows Alys meet her end while trying to protect Bran Stark in the Godswood. Check it out:

Well, it looks like Theon Greyjoy wasn’t the only guy that lost his life trying to look out for Bran Stark, and Alys deserves at least some credit for being one of the many to buy enough time for Arya Stark to swoop in and save the day.

This could’ve easily been kept in the episode. I mean, it’s game of Thrones, and it’s the most important big battle of the show. Surely one more death couldn’t have hurt.

Sophie Turner discusses her final Game of Thrones scene as Sansa Stark

Game of Thrones deleted scenes and special feature types are flying all over the Internet, now that HBO has released the full series disc sets of the show. We have been reporting about many of these, and this one involves Sophie Turner discuss her final scene on the show as Sansa Stark. Read on!

The video was posted to Twitter, and it shows Sophie, dressed as Sansa, discuss her final scene on the show. Take a gander:

Sophie said:

“I think it was just so overwhelming, and I kind of kept reading and re-reading, and I felt a bit numb afterwards because I never thought I would be reading the final scene.”

Now, knowing Game of Thrones, there was always a risk that a major character could just drop dead, and Sophie feared this for Sansa as well. However, as we now know, she made it to the end, and she did really well. Speaking of that, Sophie said:

“It’s very gratifying. It’s great that she ends up being Queen in the North, and I think it’s the place where she really feels like she belongs. And I think it’s a really just, happy, good ending for her, which I was never expecting.”

Well, we know that was one character ending that we absolutely loved. What about you guys? Talk to us in the comments, down below!

Daenerys gets the northern hate in deleted scene from Game of Thrones Season 8

Game of Thrones series disc sets are here, and we have seen deleted scenes from the show flood the internet as a result of that. Among these, was one showed Daenerys and Jon walk through Winterfell. Read on!

This scene fits into the timeline at the point when Winterfell is preparing for the battle. Jon and Daenerys take a walk through, looking at the preparations, and Daenerys gets some hateful looks from the Northeners. Check it out:

This actually would have fit well in the preparation sequence, and added to the overall unwelcomeness that we saw Daenerys get in the north in Season 8. It wasn’t necessary though, and probably why it was left out. We also saw Daenerys’ unsullied stop for her, but we didn’t really need to be reminded of their loyalty, making the scene even less required.

That being said, they could have just left it in. Not like we would complain about too much of Game of Thrones, right?
