HBO seemed to say this was a mistake, but I would like to know what David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have to say since they are in that same scene reverse image Dave is right of Tormund and Dan is raising a horn. ( You know David , with a beard, looks like Liam Neeson!)
Bronn is a strange character, from the little bit he has told , he is from the lower classes, and he has never said where is from, avoids the subject.anyone else still wondering about that Highgarden thing. I mean Highgarden seems a bit much for Bronn. How are the going to sell this to dany. Simple answer, they won't. So possible solutions:
- The show don't care anymore and makes Bronn Lord of Highgarden anyways (which don't make sense)
- They kill of Bronn
- They kill of Jaime and Tyrion
- They kill of Tyrion, Jaime technically didn't make the bargain. And if he and Cersei are back on terms, his assassination order by cersei is rescinded.
Also Bronn his fighting days are over, i guess this means he has almost no scenes in the episodes that are left.
I do wonder where the hell they got it in Winterfell. It’s in the middle of nowhereSo which of Cersei's children will have inspired the face Arya's going to be wearing when she kills Cersei: Joffrey or Tommen?
The sound stages are in Belfast at the Titanic Studios. They have been vocal about it, in their nonspoilery PR articles. It would be strange, if there wouldn't be a StarBucks over there. At here in West London, there's too many. I can walk half a mile in any direction and there's at least one, if not two or more in vicinity.Not in deepest darkest Strangford. there’s a shop, ten pubs and some seals
Titanic Studios are at the edge of the dock lands, a decent walk from the city. Out of interest I did a google and there are no Starbucks out that way.The sound stages are in Belfast at the Titanic Studios. They have been vocal about it, in their nonspoilery PR articles.

Game of Thrones Director Admits the Real Reason Jon Never Said Bye to GhostThanks to the massive Battle of Winterfell in an earlier episode, fans have had to say goodbye to beloved characters who perished at the hands of the Night King. Not all of the goodbyes in this final season have been due to death, as Jon Snow made the decision in this week's episode to part ways with his direwolf companion Ghost, who went to live in the north as Snow began his trek south. Audiences were stunned that the episode failed to depict Snow saying goodbye to the beloved companion, though director David Nutter claims it was the requirement of CGI to convey such a moment that the episode opted to avoid the interaction.
“Since the direwolves are kind of CG creations, we felt it best to keep it as simple as possible,” Nutter shred with Huffington Post. “And I think that it played out much more powerfully that way.”
Fans might disagree with the sequence being more powerful this way, as they were quick to hop on social media to voice their displeasure with Jon leaving such an important part of his life behind. However, as anyone who has had to say goodbye to a pet can tell you, it is often the most difficult goodbye you'll ever have to say, so by avoiding the gesture, Jon was preventing himself the heartache, even though Ghost clearly deserved a loving sendoff.
“Keeping Ghost off to the side, I thought that played out better,” Nutter claimed. "Then he just walks off by himself, he turns to Ghost and has this moment with Ghost that I thought was very, very powerful."
Ghost isn't the only one Jon left behind, as the direwolf set out with his Night's Watch companion Samwell Tarly and partner in combat Tormund.
“I think that Jon knows what he’s leaving behind," Samwell actor John Bradley pointed out. "Jon Snow is a noble man, and he knows all about sacrifice ... He knows what he has to keep safe, and he knows he has a responsibility to Ghost and a responsibility to Sam, Gilly and Baby Sam because he knows where they’ll be safe.”
He added, "He was very aware of the sacrifice of leaving those figures behind, and they know — hopefully, Ghost knows what he means to Jon — and Jon knows what Ghost means to him.”
The direwolves debuted in the first episode of the series, with each of the Stark children adopting their own. Tormund actor Kristofer Hivju pointed out that, while fans would love to see Ghost stay with Jon, the canines shouldn't have been that far south in the first place.
“I think Jon is right that the south isn’t the place for a direwolf," the actor noted. "In Episode Two or Three they killed one of them [Lady, Sansa’s direwolf] — it’s a wild animal, it’s like a wolf plus two! I think it’s best for Ghost to go north.”
With the series nearly over, fans are hoping to catch a glimpse of the characters safely heading north, but Hivju noted, "Well, there’s still two more episodes to go. We don’t know if they survive.”
HBO Removes Misplaced Starbucks Coffee Cup from Game Of Thrones EpisodeIt seems a sweet source of caffeine has departed the Game of Thrones universe for good. After a public coffee snafu hit the HBO show’s final season, the network appears to have removed a wayward coffee cup which made its way into season eight.
In a recent report by Variety, attention was brought to HBO’s latest episode of Game of Thrones. The series hit up fans this past weekend with the release, but it prompted countless memes when fans spotted a misplaced cup of coffee in the episode resembling those sold by Starbucks. Now, it seems the gaff has been scrubbed out of the episode online.
As of today, versions of the episode streamed online via HBO Now and HBO GO are missing the coffee cup. Variety says a a rep for HBO didn’t immediately respond for comment, but screenshots from the edited episode have gone live sans coffee cup.
I found that lame …. I know the VFX of real creatures is hard, tho it gets easer in time, they should have contracted the job with WETA who seems to know how to do this kind of CGI. (by the HBO's purse was totally open for season 8)
With Bronn off threatening people Euron was the only world renowned giant bolt thower captain left. The ability to hit a flying target first time is incredible.Why was Euron Greyjoy still in King's Landing? Wouldn't such a brilliant sea captain be better placed with his fleet?
I expected some kind of involvement for Essos by now too. When Mel said she was going to Volantis last season I thought we would get one sequence of her at the Red God's main's temple , nothing.Indeed - fab discussion
Speaking of other armies. What about Daario Naharis and his merry gang? Are they perhaps on their way?
Probably not enough time in two episodes, no. And Dany has zero patience. Typical millennial....I expected some kind of involvement for Essos by now too. When Mel said she was going to Volantis last season I thought we would get one sequence of her at the Red God's main's temple , nothing.
One notes that Dany is not only the Queen of Meereen not she is also empresses of Slaver's Bay, she could assemble another fleet. All the Dothraki did not go with her. She has enough wealth to outbid anyone in Essos , could go to the Iron Bank and trump KL's price for the Golden Company.
(In the books the greatest navel fleet in both Westeros and Essos belongs to Braavos… hmmm.)
All before using her allies in Westeros.
I don't think any of that will happen.
