Did You Know?


When Daenerys is stranded in the Dothraki Sea with Drogon, it can be seen that she is wearing riding leggings. While some television viewers called into question the probability that Daenerys would have been wearing riding leggings while attending the opening of the fighting pits in the preceding episode, Michele Clapton, the costume designer of the series, explained Daenerys always wears riding leggings under her gowns out of habit, because throughout her life she had to be prepared to escape at any moment from assassins sent to kill her.

The gunk on Cersei's body during the "walk of atonement" visibly changes between shots (from the right clavicle to right deltoid and back again, for example). The changes often occur between faraway and close-up shots, because the faraway shots are actually the body of Rebecca Van Cleave, with Lena Headey's face very obviously CGI'ed over hers, whereas the closeup shots are Headey.

Elation to Despair in one episode - thats Game of thrones
14 June 2015 | by arunspursSee all my reviews

If Elation was the word for Episode 9, its despair the word for Episode 10. Having already read the books prior, I was ready for what was to come. In spite of that, this episode was like a punch in my stomach. While many will talk about what happened at wall, I would look at the events at Dorne & Kings Landing. For the first time in 5 seasons, we had a episode that emotionally affected the Lannisters. They have been the hated characters of Game of Thrones - but am sure Episode 10 gave a different perspective to their characters. Lannisters - always pays their debt & the 2 events at Dorne & Kings Landing could have huge repercussions in next coming season.

At the wall...its anyone's guess. Problem with guess work is it doesn't always work in Game of Thrones. All in all, a gripping season finale. Shame we have to wait for another 10 months to start all over...
