Sansa Stark meets Daenerys Targaryen in the latest Game Of Thrones Season 8 teaser

Game of Thrones Season 8 seems just over the horizon with less than 4 months left for it to air. We’ve already been treated with a teaser named Dragonstone and two actual footages from the season released by HBO. And, it’s not a surprise when one or the other team member teases the new season for you. This time it’s HBO’s Chief Richard Plepler who feels Game of Thrones Season 8 will be monumental with movie-length episodes.

Plepler while talking to the Variety post the Golden Globes on Sunday that he has seen the rough cut of the final six episodes i.e. without any special effects.  He said:

“It’s a spectacle. The guys have done six movies. The reaction I had while watching them was, ‘I’m watching a movie.”

“They knew the bar was high. They’ve exceeded the bar. I’ve watched them twice without any CGI and I’m in awe. Everybody’s in for an extraordinary treat of storytelling and of magical, magical production.”

21st Webby Awards winners announced, Game of Thrones wins two!

This exactly matches with the kind of hype the cast members like Peter Dinklage (Tyrion Lannister), Sophie Turner(Sansa Stark), and Gwendoline Christie(Brienne of Tarth) have made for the final season of Game of Thrones. Especially, Gwen who had teased the season by saying the fans would have to get therapy after the series ends.

Also, showrunner David Benioff had revealed at the Emmys this year why the season is taking such a long time to air. He had revealed to Digital Spy,

“The final season is taking a long time because it’s the biggest thing we’ve ever done…Even though it’s six episodes, it was nearly a full year in Belfast either prepping it or shooting it…It’s quite extraordinary what the crew and the actors created, and I think when people see it they’ll understand why it took so long.”

“No-one’s going on vacation or slacking off, it’s just that last season is far beyond what we’ve ever attempted before, and it is taking a really f**king long time – and I hope it will be worth it.”

This truly leads us to believe that though Game of Thrones didn’t air for more than a year and took so long for filming and special effects, it will be worth it! What do you guys think? Tell us in the comments.

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?
