Filming in Cáceres began this morning and it has subsisted the whole day despite the lousy weather —One could argue the production were quite happy for the rain, in fact, or else they wouldn’t have chosen to film in this season. Winter has come to Westeros and apparently we’ll begin to see it have an effect even south in the capital. However, as you can see in the photo above, that’s not the only thing we’ll see…
This evening, HOY shared new photos of the set at Plaza de Santa María and around showing King Euron Greyjoy and many other major characters in a crucial scene that speaks for itself… So much so that I must stress there are MAJOR SPOILERS ahead!
Yesterday, once two of the actresses for the Dornish characters appeared on Cáceres, I made some predictions, and today they are confirmed. Euron will pledge his Iron Fleet to Cersei, presumably offering a similar deal to the one he intended to offer Daenerys before his crafty niece and nephew got ahead of him, and to prove his worth he’ll attack them and the Dornish at sea. And then… Well, today’s photos speak for themselves:
Obara and Nymeria will likely die during the sea battle, Theon will escape, while Yara (seen here played by Gemma Whelan), Ellaria (Indira Varma) and Tyene (Rosabell Laurenti Sellers) will be captured and paraded through the streets of King’s Landing, mocked by the smallfolk while the victorious Euron (Pilou Asbæk), dressed in a more menacing outfit, leads the procession on a black horse. Cersei will be happy.
Director Mark Mylod can also be spotted, speaking to Asbæk, which means this sequence, and likely the sea battle as well, takes place either in episode two or three (Hint: It’s episode three.) You may also browse the rest of the pictures at HOY’s gallery.
