Footage of Emilia Clarke and season 6 filming surfaces, plus more updates from Spain!

While major news comes out of Northern Ireland, Spain continues to be a flurry of Game of Thrones activity in Peñíscola and Navarre.

In the plaza by Castillo del Papa Luna, several props have appeared, and decorations for House Targaryen:

El Periodico Mediterraneo reports that in the Plaza Santa Maria, major changes have taken place in preparation for Game of Thrones. A “walled facade” with “doors and windows” now stands in the plaza, along with a catapult.

Plaza Santa Maria and the Papa Luna plaza were confirmed as locations recently in an official announcement by the city council. It is believed that the city is playing the part of Meereen this season.

In casting news, Modexpor International is still searching for extras in Peñíscola to sign on, particularly thin, dark-haired people 16 to 18 years old. They’re needed for October 2nd through the 7th.

A few images of the work in progress, courtesy of TodoPeniscola.com:

There is new footage and photos of the filming in the Bardenas involving Emilia Clarke and the Dothraki. Hola shared this with viewers:

According to Hola, the filming of Daenerys and the khalasar in this scene was shot in the area of the Balsa de las Cortinas. In this scene, Daenerys is kneeling, still wearing her old clothes, and her position with the khalasar is uncertain.

    1. I’ve seen the video of the last pic, two Dothraki arrive and take her away. I’m guessing this is when we’ll first see her next season?

        Quote  Reply

    2. Ok, to me that first pic looks like an “under siege” scenario. So going off on that, I have big doubts the Sons of Harpy will be the attacking force from the inside. I’m sticking with my “outside forces attack Meereen scenario” from Dance until further notice.

      “SOUND THE ATTACK!”, ordered the Imp…

    3. Didn’t she have on a white dress when they found her? So, enough has happened between then and now for her to have changed clothes.

    4. Tori Targaryen,

      Apparently Emilia

      already filmed a scene I think it was in ireland a few weeks ago with many extras and horses so I’d assume that probably would be the sequence for her final scene in the season finale.

    5. Arthur,

      I think (and I’m just guessing here) that it’s only used in scenes in which drogon’s position is very specific…for shots like this, it might not be case..but again…just a guess…funny thing is that Arthur is actually my name too…feels weird to talk to myself..

    6. So Yunkai will attack in Dany’s absence? Tyrion has the worst luck at being Hand.

      E: at the same time, a Battle in the Snow with surprise Jon Snow and a Battle of Fire with surprise Daenerys would be funny.

    7. Luka Nieto,

      Here is the picture in question, they are small ballista, basically very big crossbows.

      Castle battlements are normally 4-5 paces wide, and therefore to small for catapults, unless specifically built in the castle design. So these portable large crossbows were created to be moved around wherever needed during a siege. Powerful enough to skewer 3-4 men with one shot or smash a ladder or punch through shields and woven screens protecting archers.

    8. Kay: The story she’ll probably tell is that her new master is the dragonrider.

      Where do you get that idea?

      If it’s from the Lhazareen Dosh khaleen young widow audition, from the second scene, her main interlocutor is probably Daario or Jorah (probably Daario, considering the “stink” comment), not Dany.

        Quote  Reply

    9. Yaga,

      History does seem to be repeating itself. I wonder if Tyrion will use Viserion and Rhaegal in place of wildfire? And I guess Dany

      will fill the role of Tywin and the Tyrells when she comes sweeping in with her new khalasar and totally wrecks the Yunkish army.

      This time I hope Tyrion will get some recognition for his efforts, and Dany will officially name him as her Hand.

    10. Luka Nieto,

      My toughts aswell. I also doubt there will be a siege. There has been absolutly nothing hinting at that posibillity.

      But there has been quite a lot, about a civil war. ”half a city consuming the other…”/Varys telling Tyrion he needs to find who his enemies are,..etc.

        Quote  Reply

    11. tyjon,

      So I guess there will be a battle, after all! That’s a great location for Tyrion to command from, just as he did from that custom-built set in “Blackwater.” We’ll be sure whenever they start shooting there, hopefully.

      Still, though your explanation makes perfect sense, those mini-ballistas are disappointing.

      Mihnea,

      I’m still hoping for a battle, personally. Heavy artillery at the city walls points to a battle with outside forces, definitely! If those really are ballistas (read tyjon’s explanation; apparently those things existed.)

        Quote  Reply

    12. Kay,

      I mean, obviously at the end of that scene

      Jorah or Daario intervenes. So they are present at that point. The question is who the widow is speaking to.

        Quote  Reply

    13. Tyrion setting free the dragons = unleashing wildfire in defense of the city. Perhaps just before or just after Dany arrives on Drogon, with a Khalasar behind her.

      The most obvious route for the show at this point- but I think it will be epic nonetheless.

        Quote  Reply

    14. All I need now to complete the GOT awesomeness from the last days is a photo from the Tower of Joy set, preferably with the director visible so we can estimate at what point in the season it’s going down.

        Quote  Reply

    15. Luka Nieto,

      Yeah, sorry I wasn’t clear.

      Of course J or D or both are present at the end. But I think the young widow is talking to Daenerys. The “stink” comment sounds a bit Daario-ish, but the “do not betray me, Khaleesi” comment sounds like Daenerys (there was a cut scene from her to Missandei in S4, saying exactly that). But you could be right and she is talking to D (and J), and at the end of the scene Daenerys comes, leading to Jorah’s hand over her mouth.

      How can D & D pass up the imagery of

      I hope we get this imagery regardless!

    18. I don’t remember seeing that many dragon banners all in one place in Mereen before. Or maybe I’m forgetting them?

      A granary seems like an odd place to put so many. I wonder what this means for Missandei, Tyrion and Greyworm’s rule.

    19. Kay: No. Look at the video (last thing in this report), http://us.hola.com/cine/2015092581203/juego-tronos-navarra/
      where two Dothraki lead her away. I doubt that she will give away the fact that SHE is the dragon’s rider until some point in VD. The story she’ll probably tell is that her new master is the dragonrider.

      In the longer video Dany’s hands are bound as she is lead somewhere. Thinking this is from episode 1 E6. The horse column video she has changed in to Dothraki Leathers , is which Darrio, and seems to be in charge.
      Have a feeling that Drogon shows up either in Ep 1 or 2 and changes some Khal’s mind or maybe some bloodriders go up in smoke!

      I think her pretty white dress got mucky. I know when she dismounted from Drogon in s5 ep 10 I wondered why her dress wasn’t white anymore but someone said it was dirt. Though to be honest I can’t really see that clearly what she’s wearing in the latest clip as she is at some distance.

    22. Mihnea: But there has been quite a lot, about a civil war.

      Yeah, I suspect that the civil war will replace the invasion. It greatly simplifies things and makes for much more coherent storytelling.

      Of course, without knowing what the story is for Winter, it’s hard to guess how doing this or that might be useful for the story.

    23. Marcus: Well no tv viewer would have cared if Barristan was the one leading the battle sorry to say .

    24. Boojam,

      Daenerys, hands tied, being led somewhere, has to be from Ep. 6.01, since she’s wearing the same dirty clothes as in Mother’s Mercy. I think the scene where she’s on horseback in new clothes leading Dothraki with Daario, has to be from Ep. 3 or later.

      As for Ser Barristan, perhaps he’ll die very soon in the books, before the resolution of the siege.

    25. On another topic,some book purists from that site that should not be named are claiming that

    26. Boojam,

      The truth is,and i say that as one who likes the show better than the books,that Barristan was really underdeveloped in the show and it showed when his death got a lukewarm reaction. Not many people who hasn’t read the book would have cared about him really .

      S5E7

    29. Marcus,

      The Tattered Prince,

      Yes. Battle for Meereen is the most logical way to end that storyline. I don’t know what else people are expecting. And with pictures we got today it is even more likely.

      They didn’t want to mention Yunkai too much last season, because they were building up for Daznak. But know, when Dany is outside of the city and they saw their “weakness” I expect they will declare a war in E1 or 2.

      I think Battle for Meereen will take place in e8, just like Hardhome in S5.

        Quote  Reply

    30. Marcus,

      And I don’t think that many people cared for him in the books either. I liked him, but I’m absolutely sure that putting Varys and Tyrion in his place is the best possible thing D&D could have done.

    31. Marcus,

      And what is Jon supposed to do in TWOW?

      Even is that is their invention it is batter than GRRM’s version, but I’m 100% it is not. There are strong hints from the books and GRRM’s interviews about the parallels of two bastards.

      That wasn’t put there for nothing.

        Quote  Reply

    32. Even if I don’t like Meereen very well I do hope Dany returns to Meereen before heading to Westeros. She can’t leave all her army of unsullied there, and mainly Rhaegal and Viserion. Even if they get released, she’d probably not know until she got there.

      Not to mention it would be frustrating if she spent that much time in Meereen and other places in Essos trying to end slavery and left the continent when this is under a total caos.

      No idea what’s gonna happen, but I assume she’d leave the city but would let someone of her trust to rule the city.

      I’m not so sure about that. If the response to him being killed early/so underutilized is any indication, I think a lot of people loved him in the books. I like having Tyrion and Varys there, specifically Tyrion, since I was damn near screaming at the book…”c’mon, have Tyrion reveal himself to Dany already,” but I would have loved to have Ian McElhinney around longer!

    37. Tyrion and Jorah in the books….

      are on the outside of Meereen, working to get on Dany’s side through a sell sword company (Brown Ben Plumm and the book’s Second Sons), while the battle is raging. And Barristan may very well die during the siege.

      So streamlining…streamlining. The show has always streamlined the sell swords plot threads anyway. So similar to how changes had to be done in all storylines just for the mere fact that characters are aged up,

      the sell Sword plot complications were gonna be omitted regardless.

      That said, I think Ian McElhinney would have been awesome. Don’t forget no matter how talented an actor, he/she is at the mercy of the writers. This isn’t only about good and bad writing determining things. It’s dynamics like how the writer chooses to emphasize elements about a character with specific story scenarios and character pairings. Think of the audience’s perception of Jaime between season 1 and the end of Season 3. Or Jon Snow by the end of season 4! Even how more show watchers began to really warm to Stannis this season while he was at the Wall with Jon Snow.

    39. I mean Barristan was always cool and all in the books, but he isn’t fucking awesome until he

      get’s a pov in the latter 3rd of book 5. And especially if he dies at the beginning of TWOW, the show would rather just streamline. We know Tyrion is heading to Dany regardless, streamline….streamline.

      But still…Ian McElhinney would have been awesome. Of that, I have no doubt.

I mean, neither of us are casual book-readers, as evidenced by our presence here, and you’re going off what you guess/your impression, and I’m going off what I guess/my impression. Neither of us can really speak for the casual reader, nor make valid statements about how the majority of them view Barristan. You have your view and I have mine, different though they may be. The truth is, we’ll never really know.

      I was right here as well, Marcus, participating in the discussions about it. Yes, there were many people complaining about how he went, but there were also a ton of people complaining about

      when he went, that he’s still alive in the books,

      and quite a few complaining about both.

    43. Marcus,

      Ha, I always thought that would be a fun twist. But I agree, it’s a stupid theory overall and the “evidence” for it is tenuous at best. I even saw one guy connect Daario’s blue beard with Euron’s blue lips. Very convincing.

      ASoIaF fans can get really, err… creative with their theories. My favorite theory is probably Bolt-on, or perhaps D + D = T, simply because of how utterly ridiculous and far out they are.

    44. Nymeria Warrior Queen: The truth is, we’ll never really know.

      My general experience is that “causal readers” of any book series remember the main characters, and that is about it. I certainly noticed that with the Lord of the Rings and Harry Potter films, where a lot of people who had read the books either thought that the films had created lesser characters that really were from the books, or included lesser characters from other books that were not in the book adapted for that particular movie.

      I, myself, have done that for Barristan-level characters when seeing adaptations of books I’d read and liked but for which I never had been a “fan.” The Hunger Games is the most recent example: I read and liked the books, but I had forgotten some of the tertiary characters by the time I saw the film.

      All of that written, I always think that Barristan offers a very different lesson for fans. Remember how many people were convinced that Arstan would turn out to be someone other than Barristan? Some fans were convinced that he actually was Aerys or one of the old Kingsguard (Arthur Dayne or the Bullroarer). Of course, most people figured out that he was Barristan: but the detractors said that it was “too obvious.” Still, I do wonder if all of the guessing led people to inflate Selmy’s importance to the tale.

      15 Internet points for tact! Harry Potter fans were much the same way. (Indeed, I suspect that a lot of them cross “Harry,” “Hermione,” and “Ron” off of their ideas and replaced them with “Jon,” “Daenerys” and “Tyrion”…. 😀 )

      I agree with you…

      Within the structure of the two scenes, it makes the most sense that she’s talking to Dany in #2. We know it’s Dany in #1, so we know that Dany leaves the dosh khaleen tent, ostensibly to “make water,” accompanied by the young widow. In scene #2, someone is talking to the young widow about why they just made an excuse to leave the tent. To me it seems pretty obvious that it’s her. I don’t know why they think she isn’t the master of the dragons, but I could see the dothraki making that assumption, since she’s a woman. Perhaps Dany is just waiting until the dragons arrive to correct them.

      Dont get me wrong, I dont think its impossible for it to be Meereen, but perhaps we should consider other slaver cities etc? The filming is set from the 4th in that location, which means Greyworm isnt present for the battle of Meereen , which is something I dont see likely…..

      Oh God I hope not! If Dany is not back and out of Meereen by about the mid-season (episode seven at most), I will be disappointed. If the Battle of Fire takes place in episode eight, that means Dany could only have just Meereen by the end of the season. She wouldn’t even arrive at Volantis, let alone Westeros! Personally, I hope the Battle takes place somewhere between episodes four and six, with Dany and the Dothraki arriving to save the day, not unlike the Rohirrim, and wrapping up that storyline for good.

      The battle scene wouldn’t happen inside the walls. As the Unsullied Commander, Grey Worm would be in the thick of it, in the sands outside the city walls (while Tyrion commands from the walls as seen in this Peñíscola location), so probably Anderson/Ritchie isn’t even needed in this set, or at least not for that long.

      Since we don’t know what will happen (at all!) in Meereen (except for the battle), it is very hard to place when the battle will take place, or judge if it’s late or not.

      Not that I know of. It’s just that, if a battle is happening (and that’s, as of yet, still very much an “if”), it’s probably gonna be fought outside, and the outside is quite sandy.

      Dutch Maester,

      It’s more of a hope (and maybe an expectation, based on D&D’s comments about Meereen and generally the way they structure seasons) than an actual educated guess.

Is it even “speculation” at this point?), but, in terms of the show on its own right, let’s be honest: though it was cool to see Volantis in Season 5, it wasn’t remotely necessary for that year’s story —Jorah could’ve kidnapped Tyrion in any old town (which is what happens in the books: Jorah kidnaps him in Selhorys and then takes him to Volantis, to find passage to Meereen). So why bother with showing us Volantis (in all its CG glory no less!), if not because it’s going to feature in the future? The fact that they have cast Kinvara, the High Priestess of Volantis, apparently as a mix of the High Priest Benerro and the Red Priest Moqorro of the books, only reinforces my point. I’m not saying Volantis in itself is important for the story —but their slaves and R’hllor’s religion will.

      Ok, to me that first pic looks like an “under siege” scenario. So going off on that, I have big doubts the Sons of Harpy will be the attacking force from the inside. I’m sticking with my “outside forces attack Meereen scenario” from Dance until further notice.

      Yeah I suspect this is the case, but they are giving Ser Barristans heroic siege defence of Mereen to Tyrion who “proved his credentials” and doing a KL defence of Mereen instead

      Wonder if the now cast Euron will turn up at seasons end with the Iron Fleet? Expect he’s the big antagonist to Dany out of the whole thing

      They will wraped it up in this season and Team Dany sailing for Westeros should be the final scene or something with WW (preferably the first one). Great decision to put them together, but purists would argue. At the end of S07 we should expect the most anticipating meeting of them all between our arguably three main protagonists.

      So in this case I agree that they will doing this to age the imprint of the banners on the Walls and make it look like they have been there for a while in a rugged Urban super city

      Agree; I didn’t take part in the discussion (was mostly lurking) but I was one of those people who was sad/disappointed about Barristan dying, and it wasn’t anything to do with choreography. I liked his POV in the books and felt particularly bad for Ian McElhinney, who seemed to be a big fan of ASOIAF and was looking forward to doing more in S5/6.

      Then again, I suppose those are the realities of working on a show like this. At least he wasn’t recast – the ultimate indignity! Speaking of which, I watched the Spooks: Greater Good movie recently (very enjoyable) and Jennifer Ehle was in it alongside Kit Harington. She’s a good actress and I would have thought she might have done well as Catelyn, but obviously something must have been off with her portrayal in the pilot. Very happy we got Michelle Fairley in the end though of course! And Daario v2.0 is far superior to the previous version.

      Jennifer Ehle (great actress!) claims she opted out.

      You were in the original pilot for HBO’s Game of Thrones, but opted not to return for the series. (The part is now played by Michelle Fairley.) Why did you ultimately decided to not stick with the show?

      Ehle: Well, it was entirely personal. My daughter was seven months old when we did the pilot. It was too soon for me to be working, emotionally and bonding-wise, but I needed to do it and I was also passionate about the books. I loved the idea of telling that story. I finished the first book when I was in the hospital getting ready to have my daughter. My husband actually went out and got the second book for me. I handed the first book to the midwife and started the second one. When I went back for my six-week checkup with the midwife, she had started the second book.

      I love Game of Thrones, but it was too soon, and I did The King’s Speech immediately after. Then did a play immediately after that. I found out that the series was then picked up at the end of working through six months when I really just wanted to hold my baby, even though I was aware of the incredible privilege of having done the three pieces of work that I got to do in a row. I think everything worked out beautifully, because clearly the show is what it was meant to be.

      I’ve long thought that R’hllor and the Red Church are going to be as important and as dangerous as the White Walkers in the end. The little scene last year with the Red Priestess in Volantene was kind of cool last year because although it served its own purpose last season (by showing Tyrion still more about Daeneyrs), it also teases a bit of what is to come.

      What will be interesting is that both Jon and Daeny almost certainly share yet another parallel in that both will probably have some debt to R’hllor. However, I am willing to bet that neither will view R’hllor as a desirable ally in the end!

    70. Nymeria Warrior Queen: I’m not so sure about that. If the response to him being killed early/so underutilized is any indication, I think a lot of people loved him in the books. I like having Tyrion and Varys there, specifically Tyrion, since I was damn near screaming at the book…”c’mon, have Tyrion reveal himself to Dany already,” but I would have loved to have Ian McElhinney around longer!

      Me too. I never thought that the ‘Euron=Daario’ hypothesis was anything but hogwash, but I would love it if in the books it turns out that Septa Lemore is Ashara Dayne and will cross paths once more with Ser Barristan, giving his arc some sort of closure. The TV show having eliminated the Griffs and their entire fascinatingly (to me at least) mysterious entourage, I suppose there was no longer any reason to keep Barristan around to bring that subplot full circle. Too bad, because McElhinney was perfect in that role.

      1) Why do people think Jon is ever going to be legitimized or insist that Rhaegar and Lyanna married? It doesn’t matter either way – if you think Jon is going to be Lord of Winterfell or King of Westeros you haven’t been paying attention. And that’s really what the “people knowing he’s publicly legitimate” is good for. Privately, knowing Rhaegar and Lyanna love each other could be enough for him.

      2) I’ve seen suggestions that Jon and Sansa marry. Where is this coming from?

      3) “I am Sansa Stark of Winterfell, and you can’t frighten me.” Such a fucking great line. Please don’t waste it by having Sansa run away from Winterfell and then go to the Riverlands. What the hell would be the point of that??? I think Sansa clearly stays in the North, otherwise there were other ways to get her from the Vale to Riverlands.

      Actually the first one was ok, because as you said he was at least not as outrageous as the book version. Seriously, it threw me out of Dany’s chapters so badly because I couldn’t understand why she was falling for this blue-haired Capt Jack Sparrow type. So the first tv incarnation was a relief if anything, but Michael H is much better!

      You’re right actually. Further examination of the casting call pro page shows he’s in ep. 507 specifically actually. So he couldn’t be the one who takes

    81. Gravemaster,

      The emphasis on the sea captain being “Westerosi”, which would go without saying if he was in Westeros, as well as the fact that he filmed in Girona, points to this sea captain being in Braavos, doesn’t it?

      Maybe it’s the man who takes Arya back to Westeros! He’s directed by Mylod, so he’s gotta feature either in episode 7 or 8, which is exactly when Arya apparently leaves Braavos in a bit of a hurry. It all fits!

      Greenjones,

      Where does it say 6×07? And how do we know she’s still there by 6×08? I thought we only knew the director… I have a bad memory, though, and you always get this stuff right, so I must assume you’re right. A pity. I thought we had solved a little bit more of the puzzle that is her story this season.

      And we know

      Arya’s still in Braavos by ep. 508 because Los Siete Reinos’s info about the Waif chase scene that was shot in Girona said that the scene was in that episode. Presumably that’s when she takes her leave of the place too because whatever’s happened to cause that chase, there’d be little point sticking around. And she’d then be in the RL for the finale…

      The one we really don’t know much about is Sansa… again. I hope that NI steps up their game by next year, given that the show ought to be shooting in cold places more and more. (do you think they will return to Iceland at some point? I think they should.)

      Good point, a siege of the great pyramid makes more sense, especially with a large proportion of the population becoming more disillusioned with Dany, not just nobles but former slaves too. You wouldn’t stockpile your food against the city wall during a siege as that one pic indicates, susceptible to siege machines, but if that was the gate courtyard to the pyramid, well, there’s probably no room outside the compound for siege engines.

      I think it’s pretty unlikely the show is ever going to do anything beyond landscape shots in Iceland again. The filming hours there were severely constricting (and, in my opinion, detracted from the quality of the scenes shot there in Seasons 2 & 3), and that would only become more of a problem if they were trying to use it for the wintertime North going forward.

      At any rate, I am betting that Protagonist A and Protagonist 1 will be leading hoards of “savages” against the foes standing between them and the real battle in VI.

      I think think some of the show-watchers who want it either think Sophie and Kit would be pretty together or want something nice to happen for Sansa and think Jon’s the last decent human being in Westeros, regardless of whether he’s her brother-cousin or not.

      Does anyone *here* do that? That way of thinking usually derives from the idea that the show just lent her out to the Northern storyline and is now going to channel her back to her own story. Consequence of a very uncharitable way of thinking about how the show cuts its way through the plot of the books. (The charitable one is that most of what happened to Sansa will also in the books, in one way or another, and the show will instead reconnect her story in WF.)

      You say she runs away, I say she escapes – and that is better than sticking around and keep getting abused. Retreating to regroup or recruit is a legitimate move on her part. You make it seem like a bad thing for her to know that she is in over her head and needs to ‘run away’ and find something or someone else to aid her, and if that leads her back towards the Riverlands or Vale (where she has allies), so be it.

      Sansa in the Riverlands is as likely as her staying North, at this point we just don’t know enough and so everyone speculates – thus all possibilities are open for debate. There seems to be cause to believe Brienne will go south, so there is certainly a line of thinking that Sansa will travel with her. Sansa knowing that Jon is LC and that her little brothers are alive could also determine her next move. Brienne knows Arya is alive and if she tells Sansa, perhaps Sansa will want to find her first since Arya maybe closer and they have a general direction to start looking. Littlefinger is supposedly coming with a Vale army, so there is another place for Sansa to end up, and under Littlefinger’s thumb she probably won’t be directing the course of action. Also Ramsey will be looking (hunting) for her, so it is safe to assume whatever she does, she will be avoiding re-capture (hopefully, would hate for her to be back under his power ) although, a little cat and mouse might make for some drama 🙂

      I could also see how they could move her back south, if they felt they needed her there. I mean, they moved her to Winterfell because they wanted her there for Theon, it might not have made complete scene, but they wanted her there and so they wrote it in.

      Personally, I would like it if she stays in the North. I speculate that she will find her way back into Littlefinger’s ‘protection.’ Littlefinger is heading North with his army, and so far as we know Littlefinger is part of Sansa’s storyline and whatever their path is, can be explored in the North.

      That’s interesting. The comments say (I think) the guy in the blue shirt is part of the Wolf Unit (and therefore not an actor?). They all look rather young and maybe the guy with tiny goatee is Selmy-esque. But I don’t know what that character would be doing there, because he didn’t seem like he was in the know.

      “Whew, I can’t we believe we killed those guys.”
      “Yeah.”
      “Alright, Selmy, you wait outside. Me and Howland will go see what’s up.”

      Do those actors match up with people cast for the scene?

    110. Also, what am I saying. Selmy would be fighting Ned if he was at the Tower of Joy.

      The two of them even talked about not having fought.

      Yep. Thankfully at least GrrM has never bothered to address his OCD nutso questions as far as I know. But yeah, TDD would be Lindaario’s toilet seat if they’d let him.

      Serious question. Who put him in charge? Did he made the wiki? Did linda put him in charge?

      And know another question. Why don’t we make a new wiki? One that does not have a longer trivia on the SS fight, then the actuall episode
      (where he projects his personal view of the episode, thats not what the trivia section is used for, nor a wiki for that.). One that does not have Lena’s taxes. Just a thought.

      Linda, or Westeros.org for that matter, has nothing to do with the GoT wiki. And no, TDD is not the main administrator of the wiki; he was put in charge because he’s incredibly productive. The quality of his production is dubious at best, but the other administrators don’t seem to care —as long as it means they don’t have to work as much, they’ll let TDD do pretty much anything.

      As for creating another wiki… I don’t think Wikia lets anyone create competing wikis in their system, wikis on the same topic. It would have to be on other website. Also, there’s the big question: are you willing to do the work? It’s a hell of a lot of work, and I’m not talking of mantaining this hypothetical new wiki but of catching up with the original. Honestly, it’s more realistic to throw out TDD… and that’s not very realistic to begin with, unfortunately.

      Oh, and otherwise I agree with you wholeheartedly. TDD is so narcissistic that he truly believes his opinions are objective fact. Believe me, it would be MUCH worse if a few of us weren’t there to put a stop to his worst tendencies.

      we can dream, tough.

      EDIT: Also, apreciate all the work you put there Luka, I can’t imagine how difficult it must be to deal with this kind of people.

      Not as difficult as it is for him to deal with the likes of me. The difference being that I don’t take it too seriously, while it seems to consume his life. So I have fun with it, in the end; don’t worry.

      Aren’t the Karstarks with the Boltons? In the books, at least. And last we saw them in the show, they abandoned Robb after he chopped off their Lord’s head.

    118. Luka Nieto,

      Until I see it different I still think that in the end the Karstarks will fight for the Starks.

      I base this on absolutly no evidance, and I even contradict what happened in the books.
      But this is pure speculation, on my side. So I would not be suprized at all if I’m wrong.

      This is just something I find interesting and hope it happens. But I also expect to be wrong.

    119. What’s the white and blue sigil with yellow balls?

      Aside from that, I’ve spotted all the others. Take a look! It’s just Starks, Hornwoods and Mormonts. But the other guys… No idea!

      Flint’s looks somewhat like that. But it could easly be either some minor house, that we don’t have a banner for or a House we know, but they did the banner in a differant way.

      That crazy nit-picky guy who adores Linda’s aggression is in charge of the GoT wiki, believe it or not. Unfortunately.

      Ohhhhhh right. That explains the content of his post (well, it’s weird, but he seemingly has a mind for details). But it doesn’t excuse the condescending tone aimed the writers including the lovely B Cogman, nor the open support for L’s viciousness.

      (Psst, dude, I think there’s a reason you haven’t been able to get in touch with Mr Cogman about your tiny problems. And it isn’t because he’s too busy…)

      I didn’t know the spanish had their own westeros.org,interesting. They are lucky they are filming in their own country because otherwise nobody would care about their irrelevant website so let them feel a bit important for now . Once the exclusive news go out,their site goes back to obscurity .

    123. Yeah, the other lady is most likely Wylla, so ToJ will be happening in ep 5/6.. So will we get the rlj reveal midseason, or will the ToJ flashback be played out over multiple episodes so we get the reveal near the end of S06 ( as normally all the important events happen at the end of the season)

    124. I find it curious how some people are already criticising D&D/GOT based on the news and rumours. Talking about the commenters from the spanish site. They seem to have forgotten that TOJ in Ned’s feverish dream was an unreliable and incomplete affair. And obviously we can’t have it like that since Ned’s long dead. Bran is the only logical choice left. And whatever he sees will be the unadulterated, concrete, complete event. For all they know, Martin could have Bran experience a TOJ flashback/show it to comatose/dead Jon or whatever in TWOW and that’s the scene GOT is adapting (not Ned’s dream). Only the Selmy bit sounds odd, but it might turn out fake.

      ghost of winterfell,

      L7R state openly that the Selmy and Bender stuff is not confirmed. I’m inclined to assume these are just rumours, because, honestly, for Selmy, past plot, and for Bender… is this guy going to shoot everything this year? Will anything even happen in the first two episodes?

    126. Luka Nieto,

      After looking at all Westerosi sigils, the closest I’ve seen to that sigil is House Egen of the Vale, sworn to the Arryns… but it’s not really that close.

      I’m pretty sure they made up a sigil.
