Creative Director talks about hints hidden in intros

With the onset of the latest season of Game of Thrones, there are countless fans coming up with their own versions of what happens in the shows and countless other forms of speculation which seem just as plausible as the next one in line. However, the Creative Director of the series recently revealed that the hints to the show rests in the intro sequences.

It turns out that the intro sequence which had been more or less similar throughout all the seven past seasons with some minor differences is being changed for season eight. The new season will bring along a new intro sequence for the show with drastic changes as compared to previous changes. Creative Director Angus Wall revealed that he had other plans for the intro sequence and that his version would be nothing like the ones seen today. When asked about whether this intro could be found in the final season of the show, he said that it was not a possibility.

“We explored that with an animated sequence following the raven,” said Wall. “In the interim, though, there was an issue that came up during the pilot, which was that nobody knew what the wider world looked like or where anyone was. So we created these little map journeys to go in-between scenes.”

he further revealed that his creative team were highly motivated for the job they were given and that they wanted everything to be hand-built. This reportedly served the purpose of a madman working away in solace, making a world as per his own grand scheme of the ideal. A stark resemblance to what the ultimate prize in ‘Game of Thrones’ really is.

“The idea was that everything needed to be hand-built, he said. “The idea of a mad monk in a tower, building all this stuff and going at it with a saw and a chisel. Making sure he’s building his world the way he wants.”

However, the final addition which the creative director had to include was the fact that they were including quite a lot of easter eggs in the intros for their fans. He said that the entire process was quite fun, but it also gave hints about what’s to occur in the series. Provided the fans can figure the easter eggs out.

“There are a lot of Easter eggs in the titles if you’re paying attention,” Wall teased. “Little things that will reward you over the course of the show. And this last season won’t be any different.”

While this would certainly speak a lot to the ones who are able to decipher the language of these easter eggs and figure them out, this can also serve to create a lot of extra controversies and fan theories about these shows as well seeing how different people would perceive these hints differently. In the end game, the genius of this plan lies in the fact that they can give away major details about the show without really giving out anything about it. Fans would have to wait and find out what eventually happens the old fashioned way instead, when the final season airs on April 14.

Something in the intro that has always pestered me is during the Winterfell flyover, while zooming in on the werewood tree, what looks like a snowflake drops down on the tree. There was never any snow in Winterfell (in the earlier seasons), but that little object has always been there. Probably nothing, just a single snowflake to let the viewer know that they’re in a colder region. I guess I’ll know if something happens at the tree this season.

Eight seasons and nine years later, Game of Thrones has finally come to an end. One of the biggest reasons it became the cultural behemoth that it is today is its incredible cast and the way they brought the characters to life. They made us laugh, cry, fear for their lives, and cheer for them through their victories and defeats.

HBO has now released a video with the stars signing off and it is giving all of us some major, major feels.

This video is a thank you note to the viewers who made the show such a massive cultural entity and kept it going throughout the years. Isaac Hempstead Wright (Bran), Emilia Clarke (Daenerys), John Bradley (Samwell), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund), Gwendoline Christie (Brienne), Maisie Williams (Arya), and Sophie Turner (Sansa) all acknowledged how the fandom’s love kept them inspired to do better.

Emilia talked about how the show became her identity, while Gwendoline and Kristofer spoke about how fortunate they felt to be so loved by the fans. Sophie and Maisie admitted they never imagined that the show would become so big. And finally, Isaac acknowledged that it was the fandom’s excitement about the show – the intense discussions, theories, viewing parties – that kept them going.

Watch the video below:

But, as Kristofer points out, “everything has an end, even Game of Thrones”. Here’s wishing the wonderful cast great futures ahead!

Game Of Thrones finally aired the 6th episode of Season 8 and with it the show has finally come to an end. The series finale started off immediately where the previous episode ended. It showed us the aftermath of Daenerys’ sack of King’s Landing. Before we move ahead, it’s important to let you know that this article contains SPOILERS from the latest episode. So please turn back if you don’t want to see any spoilers.

The episode started with a shocked Tyrion, Jon Snow and Davos walking through King’s Landing and seeing the destruction that was caused by Daenerys Targaryen. She didn’t spare anyone and we saw that the Unsullied were still unsatisfied and they continued executing Lannister soldiers in the latest episode. In the span of one episode, Daenerys and her army turned from heroes to villains.

Daenerys finally conquered King’s Landing and had a big Targaryen sigil banner hanging prominently on a wall and it reminded me of the time when Daenerys captured Meereen and her soldiers did the same at the top of the Great Pyramid.

Jon and Grey Worm had an argument and for a moment it felt as if there would be a fight between the Unsullied and Stark soldiers.

Tyrion decided that he could no longer serve Daenerys and threw away the Hand of the Queen pin and he was immediately arrested.

We got to see Tyrion’s trial in the Dragonpit.

Noble houses from all over Westeros had arrived for the trial and it was nice to see all members of House Stark present in King’s Landing.

Edmure Tully tried to nominate himself as the King of Westeros and was immediately asked to sit down by Sansa.

For killing Daenerys Targaryen, Jon was sent to the Night’s Watch.
