blog post. This one, entitled “Shivering for the Shot”, offers us a tiny insight into the gruelling task of waiting for natural lighting conditions to allow the perfect shot.
Day 77: From the bottom of a quarry, our VFX supervisor looks up at the ridge above us and shakes his head. As we all shiver in 4°C shadow, he’s praying the sun won’t rise over the ridge and bathe us in its loving warmth. Because we have some serious VFX elements in this scene and shadows are much easier to match than light. For VFX, hell isn’t other people – it’s the sunlight on their faces.
The Wall storyline has been getting a lot of attention lately, and that trend seems to continue with this
. The image shared above looks quite similar to a shot of what fans are assuming is Hardhome in the teaser for
. The theory is that Jon will personally lead a ranging to the wildling village. This may also be the scene that Kit Harington recently mentioned took a month to shoot. Judging by the footage and our own sources, it’s quite likely that Kit’s teases and a long battle scene are one and the same.
seems to be similar to where Catelyn’s meeting with Ser Vardis Egan took place in “The Wolf and the Lion”, which was also shot in a quarry. This could point to that particular location representing the Vale in winter. However, the same locations have been used for shooting different Westerosi areas before in the show, and there’s no reason that practice would stop now.
. Hardhome, the Vale, or somewhere else entirely – what do you think?

Pycelle in this season? I think Julian Glover has said he’ll be in five episodes this season.
I hope they make him “the sensible” Pycelle that he is in FeastDance, and that Cersei refuses to listen to him (even though he is giving good advice). And that they’ll kill him of in some way at the end (to stop him fixing the realm).

One wonders if these posters have English as a first language?
I can’t take anyone seriously who continues to watch the show while hating it. Even if it is meant to be funny, I can’t invest time in the ironic hate.
I do think this is Hardhome – question for all on this. Have any characters in the show actually referred to Hardhome or that area of Beyond the Wall yet (in S4)? Wondering if the town will be renamed for the show.
I think Mr Angry needs to calm down a little lest he have a seizure. I can’t remember where I read it but some bright spark (obviously not a book-purist) had made a quip about GRRM’s final ASOIAF books, when they are (hopefully) written being fan-fiction for the TV show.
As for making the odd mistake in language, English is my native language and I am not so rare and perfect that I’ve
made a “schoolgirl howler”. I once typed “Messers” for “Messrs” – fortunately I picked it up before the letter went out – just as well because a friend regularly “temped” for the firm it was addressed to. If it had gone out and she’d seen it I’d never have been allowed to forget it.
One of my favorite scenes in the series thus far is not the epic battle at the wall, or Ned at the Sept of Balor or all the other iconic moments. My favorite scene is when the Knights of the Vale come galloping down that road to meet Catelyn, their banners snapping in the breeze, the glint of sun on their burnished mail. That, to me is pure fantasy, and it makes me feel like a kid reading all those great fantasy books, from the Lord of the Rings to the Deryni novels to Gormenghast!
Northerners from the mountain tribes would dress similarly to wildlings north of the Wall, Jon and Yara have similar hair, the fighting style doesn’t seem much like Jon’s and Deepwood would seem to be more likely to be a fort surrounded by wooden pikes than Hardhome would, in my opinion.

the Hardhome set is actually a Vale set… because it’s obviously Hardhome or the show’s equivalent.
