Director Miguel Sapochnik wasn’t tasked with putting together massive scenes for just one episode of Game of Thrones this year. He was also tasked with an instantly memorable opening scene for the trials of Loras and Cersei. Of course, this being Dave, Dan and Miguel, they accomplished that with the most watched and most loved episode in Game of Thrones history.
Once again, to look inside another amazing sequence, HBO put together this seven-minute featurette behind the scenes of the scene’s acting, writing and visual effects. Remember though, the video is dark and full of spoilers.
What is hype may never die. There were a lot of loose plot threads heading into this season’s finale. Not only were they paid off spectacularly but we are set up for the stretch run of Game of Thrones with a series of mic drops as the episode came to an end.
