Game of Thrones | Season 8 Episode 1 | Game Revealed (HBO)

Oh, I didn’t see
that one coming. This is the last time we’re ever
going to be doing this. It’s completely unexpected. -I– I mean, I audibly gasped.
First episodes of every season
are always a challenge.
But for the final season,
it was a lot of pressurebecause we had
all these characters
convening at Winterfell. D.B. WEISS:We thought that
the arrival was a way to capture
what was at stake for Dany
and for Jon.For Arya on the ground,
and for Tyrion and Varys,
and Grey Worm
and Missandei on horseback.
Everybody has
a slightly different take on what’s happening here. Background! Action! David Nutter directed
half the season for us, and there’s no more beloved
director in the business. BERNADETTE CAULFIELD:
Usually a director
Game of Thrones will shoot for three days,
then he has two days prep, and then he maybe shoots
for a full week,but Nutter just had to go
all out
for eight or nine weeks
of shooting.
I was so happy that he was back
for the final season.
David Nutter really felt
like part of the family. DAVID NUTTER:We shot, uh,
a lot of the parade stuff
at the end of the year
where we had kind of
the two shortest days
of the year.
Then we came back and kinda
brought some scope to it. Winter’s Town is a settlement
just outside of Winterfell.And so that road was snowed.We built the little buildings
that led up the road.
It was completely redressedto be the Winterfell
little town.
It’s basically a huge parade.The ADs sought out
background villagers’ reactions,
so you’re actually working
with the extras in a way
so you’re getting a performance
out of everybody.We worked with
the military advisers
so a lot of these guys looked
professional marching step.
(GRUNTING) JAMIE MILES:When we tell them
to do something, they do it.
We teach them some very basic
drill movements
so they know how to stand,
everything’s under a command,a whistle blast,
so they get to learn
to react in a military style,
in a disciplined style. CHRIS NEWMAN:Anything that’s
on the page, we tend to…
show rather than just imply.If you’re gonna say you want
to see thousands of Unsullied,
then we have to show it. STEFEN FANGMEIER:
It’s a significant
big scope moment.
So the challenge
was definitely to find ways
to really make it seem like
thousands are arriving.You have to have a vantage point
from higher up.
NUTTER:When I read
the opening sequence
and I saw this little boy
running to try to see the parade and see the show
and see what he’s missing,I felt like that little boy,’cause I’d been gone
for two seasons.
So, in some respects,
I kinda was that little boy.
and immediately,
Sansa wants to make it
very clear that
she runs this shit. ♪ (UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ This is a tough crowd. KIT:I think Jon knows Sansa
well enough now that,
when it comes to Dany,he knows he’s going to have
some difficulty.
SOPHIE:Jon is in love with her,
has bent the knee,
he’s got googly eyes on,
he’s got like, beer goggles on. NUTTER:I basically sat down
with Sophie and told her,
you have to remember one thing:
This is your house. JON SNOW: Queen Daenerys
of House Targaryen. Thank you for inviting us
into your home, Lady Stark. The North is as beautiful
as your brother claimed. As are you. You’re meeting the family!
You want to do well! You want them to like you,
goddamn it!And, um, you’re met
with this stony, stoic silence.
KIT:It’s not a comfortable
homecoming, no.
There are a lot of people on set
kind of like a giant gameof “Where’s Waldo?”In the first episode,
a couple of our friends from the comedy world
were in a scene. They gouged my eye out! -(LAUGHS)
-They gouged my fucking eye out! They can put it back in, right? -Right?
-Yeah. (LAUGHS)
Benioff told me they would. DAVID BENIOFF:
When we found out
that George Lucas
wanted to visit,
we thought maybe
it was a practical joke,
and then we were really excited
and also nervousbecause it’s George Lucas.DAENERYS:
Your sister doesn’t like me. JON:
If it makes you feel any better, she didn’t like me either
when we were growing up. Now print. NUTTER:George would be sitting
at my director’s chair,
that was so cool for me.I had George go out
and speak to Kit and Emilia. Okay, okay, that was great. Great. Great.
No direction for you… -I don’t really care about you.
-(LAUGHS) I don’t care
what happens to you. -What?!
-What’s going on? I mean, like the first time
like I could remember telling stories was me
as a little kid mashing together these,
like Stormtrooper dolls.For so many of us,
he’s the one who started
our obsession with this kind
of big, epic storytelling. NUTTER:And of course,
the input that he put through
with the writer Dave Hill’s
head. MAN: Three, two, one, go! (GRUNTS) HILL:I very much learned
the lesson that sometimes
when you write two words,that you then create
so much work
for everyone involved.
Oh, I get an axe in the head.
Simple enough. Next thing I know,
I’m flying to London, to go out to have my face
sculpted,be wrapped in plaster
and molded.
The day of, I’m in a chair
for four-and-a-half hours. (GRUNTS) It was great to see
that we were basically gonna get to take Dave Hill out,
one of our writers. It’s quite nice to be able to,
um, kill fellow crew members off (LAUGHS) in the nicest
kind of way. HILL:Having to go and be
the one who give the performance
is so much more trouble
(CHUCKLES) than I imagined.And I was just trying
desperately not to screw it up.
And I did, the first time.And the second time,
The Godswood Tree is such
an iconic piece of the show.
To create that Godswood tree
is a huge amount of effort.Every year, it would have to be
painted white.
It would be coated in latex,a sculpted face would be
applied to it.
The greens team would go about
adding branches to it
with flocked red leavesthat Kevin Fraser
would paint up for us.
It’s a process where you take
a flock, which is a fiber, and actually adhere it
to the leaf on one surface.So, obviously, you’ve got some
quite interesting dynamics
when things were lit and shot.ARYA STARK:
You used to be taller. MAISIE WILLIAMS:
When I first got the scripts,
it was like a bunch
of lords and ladies talking, and I was thinking,
“Are we ever gonna get a scene together again? And then, finally
got to that sceneand I was just beaming.KIT: The really spooky thing
was turning around
and seeing her
for the first time,
and what I wanted to try and getwas this kind of punch
to the gut… of literally turning around
and seeing time having past. JON: You still have the sword. -ARYA: Needle.
-JON: Needle. The most amazing thing happened.I just didn’t have to do
We had two actors
who hadn’t worked together
since season one…to get a chance
to show pure true love. (GASPING) NUTTER: The one thing I told
the actors in season eight,
the audience just wants
to see you breathe. MAISIE:
To watch Kit grow as an actor
on the show has been incredible,
and I think the fans are gonna
love it ’cause I loved it. I hit you right in the face. -KIT: It’s all right.
-MAISIE: I’m so sorry! WOMAN: Cut, go again. Part of the fun of the episode
was bringing back together all these characters. It’s also
the challenge of the episode because you don’t want it
to feel like it’s, you know, just the reunion episode. DIRECTOR: Ready and action! ♪ (UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ ARYA: Leave him be. WEISS:The Hound and Gendry,
we thought it would make sense
for kind of the one-two punch
of these two people who served very, very
different roles in her life. GENDRY:
Is that a command, Lady Stark? Don’t call me that. He still thinks that she’s
the same girlthat he left beforehand.You’ve gotten better. Yeah, thanks. So have you. I think for Arya, it’s
remembering who she was before. -I mean, you look good.
-Thanks. Like I used to be that girl,and that’s who I was
in love with
and thought I would follow
to the end of the world. WEISS:The Hound-Arya reunion,that’s a thing we were
most excited about writing. You left me to die. I still robbed you. Everyone would hope the reunion
between Arya and The Hound would be laughs and giggles,
but actually, it starts off as like cold ’cause it’s kind of
a defense mechanism for both characters. THE HOUND: You’re a cold
little bitch, aren’t you? Guess that’s why
you’re still alive. There’s also Tyrion and Sansa. PETER DINKLAGE:
There’s something
between Tyrion and Sansa
you can’t quite put your finger
on ’cause they’re… “You left me, and then you know
what happened to me, and I know what happened
to you.” Apologies for leaving like that. Yes, it was a bit hard
to explain why my wife fled moments after the king’s murder. It’s tricky with them. They have to watch their words
around each other,but at the end of the day,
she does trust him.
And at the very end,
we have the silent reunionwith Jamie and Bran.If he tells the rest
of the clan the truth… I’m– I’m done. I’m dead. NUTTER:To me,
I wanted to make sure that,
with respect to people
getting back together again,
those all had their credence
and importance,
but also, I didn’t want
the audience to forget the fact
that the impending doom
was coming. MAN: A Camera mark. ♪ (UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ They’re coming.
There’s no way around it. (CHUCKLES) This is a great
horror movie sequence that Dave Nutter, um,
directed the hell out of. Somehow, Beric and Tormund
survivedfalling down that wall of ice.We find that it’s strangely–
there’s blood everywhere, but there’s no bodies. Stay back, he’s got blue eyes! I’ve always had blue eyes! Did you find anyone? BARRIE GOWER:
The scene in The Last Hearth,
we have this mandala
of limbs and body partsthe Night King has left behind,
which form this kind of pattern,
and in the middle of it,
we have Ned Umber, who’s basically pinned
to the wall on a huge stake. Obviously, we know what happens
to people who are killed by the Night King
or white walkers. (SHRIEKING) GOWER:The young boy
was suspended in a harness,
and then to basically kill
the wight, Beric uses his flaming sword
and takes out the wight. We had to shoot that
on a stunt guy called Paul Lowe,who was of a similar sort
of stature
to the actor playing Ned.PAUL LOWE: Game of Thronesis
the first time I got a full burn
so that’s a nice tick.What I guess a lot
of stuntmen wanna have.
And for that, because he was
gonna be engulfed in flames,we had to make
a lookalike fire mask.
ROWLEY IRLAM: Are we good?
You can hear me okay, yeah? I love– I love what you’ve done
with your hair. BERIC DONDARRION:
It’s a message. From the Night King. Being Beric Dondarrion, I’m
always setting people on fire. You have the mask off,
you talk through it, what the process is gonna be. Then we’ll roll the cameras,
okay? The first three-two-one will be
to light the sword, then it’ll be three-two-one,
action, for Nick to stab you. You lift your arm up to stab
on three, okay? On action, he’s gonna stab you.
Hold this position like this. When you hear me start to count,
that’s when you start to react. You then have to go and do it. They’ll gel you, they’ll spritz
you and they’ll light you. ROWLEY: One! Action! One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight,
out, out, out! LOWE:Well, you have an idea
of what it’s gonna be like
but when I was set on fire,you’ve only got these little
small eye holes.
All I could see
were little flicks in my eyes
of like a little bit of red.And the first time we’d done it,
and like it went all,
and they put me out, I said,
“Was I on fire?” And they said,
“Yeah, it was massive.” (CHEERS, APPLAUSE) JON: You’ve completely
ruined horses for me. It almost seemed like you knew
where it wanted to go. -Not quite–
-KIT: Fuck’s sake. ♪ (UPBEAT MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ We’re shooting in Iceland!
Isn’t it beautiful?We only have about six hours
of light,
so we all come out about
3 hours before the sun rises.
Grip and electric get to lay
about a 40-foot track,
our department was laying down
all the bonesfor our nest for our dragons.BENIOFF: Some of those locales
in Iceland are so breathtaking
that real environments
just help the actors so much, so if it’s Kit and Emilia
walking past a frozen riverin Iceland
and they’re shivering–
that’s real.Yeah, this fire lady,
dragon mama is not used to the cold! No problem, I can stand
in the snow all day. I just loved that I could
go there with Emilia.I got to show this thing
that’s been such a…
large part of theThrones’ worl
for me.
I got to show her Iceland. EMILIA CLARKE:
Magic dragon ride!
I like it, it just felt like,
a magic carpet ride! We just sort of…
playing tag on the dragons. (CHUCKLING)It’s beautiful.FANGMEIER:
We were lucky to get a great day
of aerial photography in Icelandwith a helicopter shooting these
most beautiful river canyonswith beautiful snow coverage.And then where they landwas meant to be a very pristine
and gorgeous location as well.
Dan and David said,
“You know, maybe– Can we have a waterfall here?”So, we went all the way
to Iceland,
to this beautiful canyon,and then we end up adding
a massive waterfalllater on in post because it
still wasn’t quite spectacular.
-Ooh! Ugh!
-(EMILIA YELPS) DIRECTOR: And… let’s roll,
please, rolling rolling. KIT:I think the actual
dragon ride was like…
yeah, it’s one bit
where you gotta convey your love for each other
and you’re in a green box on a–on a buck.So much of what we’re doing now
requires robotics.So we’ll start with previews
and in order to then shoot it,
we’ll go into a green screen
stage with a motion base,
which is kind of like
a mechanical bull, only in this case, it’s got
a dragon’s butt on top of it.And then the cameras
are swinging around
on a 3D-controlled wire rig,programmed to match
the previews. Don’t know how to ride a dragon! Butt work is not easy.I think what sums up the buck
for me was…
there was a bit where Jon
almost falls off the dragon,swings around really violently
like this,
and my right ball got trapped,and I didn’t have time
to say stop,
and I was being swung around.In my head, I thought,
“This is how it ends.
On this buck, swinging me around
by my testicles. Literally.” (CONTAINED LAUGHTER OFF-SCREEN) (CHUCKLES) Sorry. Probably too much information. ♪ (TENSE MUSIC PLAYS) ♪ KIT: It’s just…
way too much to take.
I was joking with John like,
“How do you, as an–
How do you receive
all those bits of information?
How would you possibly
try and act that?
When they’ve got death
raining down at them?”
And suddenly he finds out
the truth about his life, that he’s not a bastard,that everything he’s lived by
is not the case.
And on top of that,
the– his new lo– (SIGHS) his new love of his life
is his aunt. Like, I mean, I was like,
“Oh, come on. This is an impossible task.” I wasn’t a king. But you were. You’ve always been. He wouldn’t want to hurt Jon
with it. He would only tell Jon that
if it were the truth.If there’s one thing
he knows about Sam,
it’s that Sam is a stickler
for facts,
and Sam is very literal. SAMWELL TARLY:
You’ve never been a bastard. You’re Aegon Targaryen,
true heir to the Iron Throne. KIT:A way to get around it
was disbelief,
like, “Sam’s gone mad.
What’re you talking about?”
Quickly followed by it
making sense and anger. You’re the true king.
Aegon Targaryen. Sixth of his name,
Protector of the Realm. All of it. KIT:I don’t care if you’re
my best friend in the world,
I will… I will…
knock you out.
How dare you tell this to me. My father was the most
honorable man I ever met. Your father… Ned Stark, he promised your mother
he’d always protect you. And he did! Robert would’ve
murdered you if he knew. And the truth that Samwell
tells Jon, is probably the most
incendiary fact in the entire world
of the show.Ned Stark understood
how dangerous
the truth about Jon was, and that’s why he protected Jon
from it. SAMWELL: You gave up your crown
to save your people. Would she do the same? ♪ (SOMBER MUSIC PLAYS) ♪

  1. whats the difference between Game Revealed and Inside The Episode?
    I love BTS stuff but the videos on this channel are kinda hard to navigate … a lot of redundance :/

  2. oh my WOW! so shocking revealed about Jon Snow… it's really totally completely unexpected to me…. so surprising…

  3. Eat it up sheep… keep consuming massive amounts of entertainment while your children's futures are snatched from them…

  4. 3.36 ok this is hillarious 🤣
    5.33 Alfie 💗🙁
    7.10 MY BABIES!! MY BABIES!! 💗💓💗💓
    13.54 What was that Mr Jon?🤣
    14.10 Oh here we go again… Batman 😂🤣

    #Cliquer_____ci_dessus 👆🏿👆🏿
    Du Nouveau Sur #YOUTUBE😱😱😱

  6. This show makes me GASP constantly. I'm not normally a gasper; but Sam telling Jon he is the TRUE freaking king almost knocked me off my chair and I had to remember to start breathing again. Jon's facial expressions when he finds out he's NOT a bastard are the reason I have always loved Jon Snow — He is Aegon Targaryen. He is the King!!! Did not see that coming. Neither did his Aunt.

  7. Can we just talk abt what Kit did after kissing Emilia??? I'd fucking die for that kiss wtfff 🙄😻

  8. what? who said there is any elephant in the show? erase it in the script right now. what? jon hugging ghost say goodbye? noooooo. no money anymore. erase it from the script right now. ghost should be far away from everyone. what? a person on fire on the wall? ok. this one can be done with small amount of money. 🙂 lets not erase it.

  9. Well,f++k me. All those years and at the final step they screw the pooch. Damned show was so dark it was hard to see what the hell was happening. also felt like I was watching Lord Of The Rings meets The Walking Dead.

  10. Masterpiece! Going to miss this so much 😭❤️ 14:55 😂😂 fucking loved this episode!

  11. The one reason Bran become the king was becasue he was the only one with a chair after drogon melted the iron throne 😂 😂 😂

  12. Daenerys shouldn't have been back stabbed and killed if it wasn't for her everyone would've died before.

  13. I remember watching the first episode when it premiered…its an amazing fantasy world that I drown myself in when I needed it. Thank you to the cast, the crew, and the author.

  14. it was an amazing show till 7th season and 8th season ruined everything worst season and ending. it's not even bearable. I think writer did not get paid on time so he decided to ruin the whole series by fucking the 8th season and ending. Very Very Very….. big Disappointment

  15. its so refreshing watching these. Seeing the actor play lord umber smiling as they're placing blood all around him on the set is such a contrast to the horror that I myself as an audience member felt when he was found murdered and left the way he was.

  16. поцелуй на 13.40 . Кит настолько крутой актер что я правда поверил, что его тошнит )))

    a kiss at 13.40. Keith is so cool actor that I really believed that he was sick

    Highly recommended for Teens ☮️

  20. Big big big mistakes
    Creating a snow location but if you look carefully when someone breeds no where you can see that is a winter freezing season.
    Make the movie shooting wordless

  21. "his .. new love of his life" Well Kit, you absolutely failed at conveying that in season 7 and didn't really manage all that well in season 8. Knew her for about 3 weeks and in that time spent more time rolling her eyes at her than anything else.

  22. sooo adamant about womens rights (whatever that means anymore) yet Sansa and Dany hate each other because they are both women. Dany is there to help and fuck Jon. Sansa just has NOOOOOOO part in this story after she is raped. she does NOOOOOOOOOOOOOTHHHINGGGGGG but get jealous and cause problems very stupidly i might add. worst character ever. I hated her at season 2.

  23. so many cameos. So these D&D fucks said fuck the last two seasons and the world for liking this show, lets just get our friends in here for cameos. Fuck the story, our friends need cameos. awesome. just awesome. close to a billion dollar budget. that many oculd have went ANYWHERE else and done better.

  24. How does that dude call himself the Co-Creator when he can't even properly pronounce the characters name, Messendei.. really are Dumb and Dumber
