There Were Some Major Fake Outs for Fans
Fake It Til You Make It: Due to the increased scrutiny on the final season from fans and people looking for spoilers, the crew behind the show made efforts to fake out fans and keep them from finding out anything specific about the season. For the final episode, past cast members were brought in to film scenes even though they wouldn’t be in the show: When filming on the dragonpit meeting in Spain (pictured above), the production flew in both Tom Wlaschiha (Jaqen H’Ghar) and The Waif (Faye Marsay)—both of whom hadn’t appeared on the show since Season 6—as well as Kit Harington (Jon Snow) and Vladimír Furdík (the Night King), even though none of the four characters would appear in the scene. When drones started to get close to the sets for filming in Northern Ireland, the production built huge a wall of shipping containers to block out any view.
