“Game of Thrones” writers reveal the one epic scene they had to cut
Game of Thrones is pretty much a perfect show, and there’s so much going on in every episode that it’s hard to imagine anything might be missing. But after reading about a scene that almost came to be—and then didn’t—we’re having pangs of regret for all that could have been.
Seriously, you guys, this would have been EPIC.
Here are the deets: showrunners David Benioff and Dan Weiss revealed on a podcast that they originally had an idea for an incredible way to shoot a battle scene starring Peter Dinklage AKA Tyrion Lannister:
Can. You. Imagine? Not only was this a major battle scene that would have been amazing to see in the show, but to see it through Tyrion’s eyes? Beyond.
If it’s any consolation, David and Dan don’t regret not doing the scene in hindsight. “In a way, I think it’s probably better that we couldn’t do it, because it never would have measured up to what we were able to do later.” (Case in point? This entire scene/battle/amazingness).
True, but still, maybe we can hope for a recreation of this scene in the special features section of a boxed set of GoT someday? We’ll keep our fingers crossed.
