Behind The Scenes: Here’s How That Crazy ‘Game Of Thrones’ Scene At The Frozen Lake Was Filmed

by 2 years ago

Just a heads up: this is a behind the scenes look at the frozen lake scene from Game of Thrones‘ ‘Beyond the Wall’ episode. So if you haven’t watched last night’s episode yet you might want to do that before watching this clip….Moving on…

To some people, last night’s Game of Thrones episode was the greatest episode in the show’s history. Other people think that ‘Beyond the Wall’ might’ve jumped the shark by creating plot holes and introducing too much implausibility to the Fantasy series. I’m somewhere in the middle. Last night’s S07E06 was badass though and through, and it just raised the stakes to a whole new level. We’re dealing with ICE DRAGONS now, mother fucking ice dragons.

On the flip side of that, I’m not at all stoked at how the show’s scriptwriters have these characters traveling insanely long distances in the blink of an eye. I think part of what has worked for the show for so long is how aside from all the magical beasts (and actual magic) they made the rigors of everyday life appear to be genuine. Sure, the idea of sending mail to someone via flying raven is asinine, but it at least used to take weeks in the show for the message to arrive and not minutes like it took in last night’s episode…This isn’t fucking email that we’re talking about. I’m just now a little bit worried that the writers are going to cut corners with only one season left after next week’s Season 7 finale…

Thoughts?
