See How The Special Effects Were Done For The Mesmerizing Opening Sequence Of The ‘Game Of Thrones’ Finale

Was there a more haunting 20 minutes of television than the opening sequence of the ‘Game of Thrones’ season finale?

Fuck no, there wasn’t. You aren’t allowed to answer any other way.

And it was so, so seamlessly done. There wasn’t a single shot that I thought didn’t look real, which is saying a lot when you are talking about magical napalm blowing up a fictional city.

But that’s a testament to just how great the Game of Thrones visual effects teams are.

God, remember how crappy Bran getting pushed out the window looked in the pilot?

They’ve come a long, long way.
