Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers: Who needs to see, right?


Game of Thrones season 8 is escalating yet again when it comes to visual effects for some of the last scenes being filmed.

Warning: Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers are on their way.

Our sister site, Winter is Coming, dubbed these Game of Thrones season 8 spoilers “downright biblical.” We can’t disagree, because this is ridiculously intense to say the very least. In fact, that might just be an understatement.

Like many of the photos we’ve seen lately, this comes from the King’s Landing set in Belfast. Take a look at the image below:

You can barely see the green screens standing up — though they are still visible. That’s how much smoke there is for this bout of filming.

Admittedly, this is from a different perspective than what we’re used to, so it’s hard to place which part of the set this is coming from. Looking at previous photos, we’re going to guess that this is from what we think of as the right side of the set, closer to the dome and possibly the wall that allegedly stands in for the Red Keep.

Of course, that’s the left side of this photo. But that’s where the smoke seems to be originating from yet again. It’s particularly thick this time, though, which is what prompted WiC’s and our attention. WiC points out that this is probably part of the fire sequence, but we don’t see any flames this time around. As a result, our question is this: Is this during the burning, or is this part of the aftermath? The smoke isn’t particularly black or anything like that, so it’s hard to place what caused it specifically.
