Game of Thrones weekend round-up: photos from Corbet, and Dothraki filming wraps up!

Game of Thrones news is trickling out of Northern Ireland this weekend. We have new photos from Corbet, a sighting of a show star in Belfast, and an update on the Dothraki filming.

IrishThrones has a few new photos from the set in Corbet.  As we have seen before, this locale features siege weapons like the trebuchet in the image above and a battering ram.  More images after the break.

Mild book and show spoilers after the jump.

As we have been reporting, this location is Riverrun in season 6.  This photo appears to be a battering ram and canopy on wheels  Of course, this is all further confirmation of an anticipated siege of the Tully stronghold in season 6, which lines up with the books.  One interesting thing IrishThrones noted was that all the red tents were gone, meaning the Lannister troops have departed.


A local school, Runshaw College, has reported via Twitter that filming also continues at Titanic Studios in Belfast (see pic below) where some of their students met “Jon Snow.” Yet further proof that Kit Harington will be back in Season 6.  Also, we posted a couple of days ago news about filming with extras in Magheramorne Quarry, though we don’t know if Kit was filming in the quarry or not.  So, filming is picking up but they are keeping a tight rein on the details.


It looks like Game of Thrones has finished up shooting that big Dothraki scene that was set for the first couple weeks of November. Several of the actors playing Dothraki roles posted Instagram pics of their journey to places beyond Belfast over the last day or so.

Joe Naufahu, Chuku Modu, Diogo Sales and Staz Nair (with friends) are shown in the pics posted from the airport.

      “thoug we don’t…”

      I’m curious at to why the Lannister forces would leave RR and let the Freys get stomped, or at least that’s what it looks like happened…

    2. Really curious to see how they’ll handle the siege of Riverrun !

      Walder Frey officialy holds it.

      Since we know Jaime wont arrive there (with all his troops) until late in the season, I can see the first half of S6 dealing with rebel factions taking back the castle (necessiting that a Crown envoy be sent there).

      Let’s see what the show will do with that !

      Anyone else think they might head to the Battle of the 6 armies? Take a look in the upper right corner of the soldier pic. A flash of Lannister red perhaps?

      Arkash,

      I’m a little confused. Does Walder Frey actually hold RR? I realize he was granted RR but is it possible they have been laying siege while the Blackfish and co. are holed up?

        Quote  Reply

    6. On the removed Lannister tents, could it just be that they were filming scenes that involve their arrival? Or from before they arrive?

      Also, iirc from the books, don’t the Lannisters leave pretty quickly after the siege is resolved? Could just be filming their departure.

      blackfish is back. Along with some of his new bffs the bwb. The freys mess something up and Jaime has to come to the rl to clean it up. Be the grownup in the group.

      Like how they messed it up in affc. It will be probably be something similar. The freys can’t handle anything. They might change the reason why the siege hasn’t broken but the same idea. Freys are incompetent and the Lannisters have to solve the problem for them.

      I think that (the idea that Freys hold it just now, and the Blackfish will take it back, then the Freys have to siege it again) is just going on Brienne saying to Podrick that “Walder Frey holds Riverrun” when they’re deciding where to go to look for Sansa/Arya. Could just have been Brienne didn’t know Blackfish was holding Riverrun, the Freys haven’t let it be known that he’s defying them (to save face), something like that. I just think they’ll pick it up with the Blackfish holding it, the Freys besieging it.

    9. Ser Florian,

      That makes sense- I don’t see all the back and forth with the rebel factions taking it from the Freys, the Freys then laying siege,… I don’t see all that playing out this season. I think it more likely the explanation is Blackfish and company have been holed up.

      I can’t wait to get the Blackfish and Jaime conversation.

      the out of sequence thing could be true. They could be filming all the Lannister stuff until they leave rl and then start with the rest. So they are not switching stuff back and forth all the time. like those Lannister tents. We will probably see Frey ones later. Imagine putting those tents up and down. Do everything from beginning to end.

      I could be wrong. I don’t work in film but from the behind the scenes stuff it looks like they film that way. It would be easier on cast and crew.

      Onto your 2nd question.

      in affc blackfish and the leftover stark/Tully house guards and jeyne westerling are hold up in rr. Freys come to break siege and take the castle for one of the older Frey sons. Jaime comes and peacefully breaks siege. Blackfish escapes and is speculated to be in rl woods. Where he possibly meets up with the bwb and might take back rr. The last part is suspected to happen in TWOW.

      The show could be different. They might skip right to blackfish with bwb taking back castle and the Lannisters coming to help the freys. Or they might just do the affc storyline. I don’t know.

      Me too. I hope they do the parley on the bridge nice and tense….my favorite few lines:

      “I assume you have returned to fulfill the oaths you swore my niece,” Ser Brynden said. “As I recall, you promised Catelyn her daughters in return for your freedom.” His mouth tightened. “Yet I do not see the girls. Where are they?”

      Must he make me say it? “I do not have them.”

      “Pity. Do you wish to resume your captivity? Your old cell is still available. We have put fresh rushes on the floor.”

      And a nice new pail for me to shit in, I don’t doubt. “That was thoughtful of you, ser, but I fear I must decline. I prefer the comforts of my pavilion.”

      “Whilst Catelyn enjoys the comforts of her grave.”

    12. They might have removed the Lannister tents to protect them from weather damage. If you look at the other pictures the Frey tents are all tied down to keep them from blowing away.

      Yeah…we wondered about a change-up like that a while back (to much dissension!).

      I think it would be sort of cool to reverse it and have the BF and BwB enter RR the same way he escaped from it in the books. And then many Freys would be decimated from inside. Maybe a “Ghost in Winterfell” scenario at RR? 🙂 We still wonder how exactly BF escaped…I think that secret could be exposed either way (in or out).

        Quote  Reply

    14. Ser Florian,

      I honestly thought that was what Jaime and his company speculated, but was never proven.

      In any case, I’d rather have the opposite be true for the show and not have BF escape again, like he did at the RW.

    15. Hodor’s Bastard,

      No, Edmure confesses to it, after Jaime threatens him with the oubliettes under Casterly Rock. I’d prefer them to go with the book plot, and keep the Blackfish’s escape from Riverrun… otherwise he’s gonna be dead or captured after they take the castle.

        Quote  Reply

    16. Ser Florian,

      Yeah…I just reread it…thx for the reminder.

      Edmure explains it sooo carefully, doesn’t he? Perhaps a little bait ‘n’ switch misdirection, maybe? In any case, should be some good scenes. I’m actually more worried about Edmure in this situation.

      Lol. I cannot engage on this website on an iPad. The comments disappear often enough when the page times out and I have trouble selecting and copying an entire comment I’m about to post…. sooooooo. Yeah. Thanks for trudging through all that to respond.

      That’s how I remember things going from the book. I think the show will stick with this, rather than the blackfish and bwb taking the castle only to lose it again, etc…. that seems convoluted. Easier to just explain that the Frey’s are a bunch of assclowns and have been posted up outside RR since shortly after the RW. Hence sending Lannister forces (led by Jaime no less) to break the siege.

      Unless of course there was confirmation otherwise that I have not heard… like Bradley filming on site (I doubt Walder himself would be present at the siege)

    19. Hodor’s Bastard,

      So tense! I remember feeling like this was a huge moment in Jaime’s progression. To revere, respect, and feel remorse for the Blackfish, while simultaneously carrying out his duty in the most fair way he could see… what a great chapter.

      Blackfish so pissed. Also, the talk of Jon. Wonder if this is where the show will plant a seed for Jaime regarding the importance of Jon… will be cool for show watchers to see that.

      Missed the conversation about Blackfish and BwB infiltrating. That could be really cool actually, and happen early/mid season. Perhaps Walder is there- but will Blackfish be the one to take him out?? (always assumed/hoped it would be Arya, or LSH)

    22. Lisa0527,

      I’ve been thinking this for a while, ever since trying to come up with a list of 6 armies who might be participating in the battle. Presumably they would fight with the Boltons and Freys; against Northmen, Wildlings and Knights of the Vale.

      It would be off-the-charts-awesome if the White Walkers are army number six, arriving in the midst of battle so that everyone who was fighting each other has to join sides and fight together…..but that’s probably asking a bit too much. So, assuming the ‘battle of 6 armies’ is literal (which it may not be), who are the 6 armies? So far, I have:

      1. Northmen (led by Jon)
      2. Wildlings
      3. Vale (arriving like the cavalary)

      4. Bolton
      5. Frey (maybe, because someone has to fight with the Boltons….)
      6. Lannister (?) or Others (?) or Other (?)

      Perhaps it’s Lannister and Bolton, and no Freys because they’re all killed by LSH, and then the White Walkers show up :-O

        Quote  Reply

    23. Bob Warren,

      The White Walkers don’t show up, it’s been confirmed long ago. My guess is, Boltons, Mormonts, Karstarks, Umbers, Wildings and the Vale, and the name is just a reference to Tolkien.

      Which we wouldn’t actually get to see, at least not for long before Jaime arrives, because there’s no main character there until he does.

    25. Bronn’s Bro.: I just want a mention of Baelish being the Lord Paramount of the Trident.

      He isn’t. Not in the show. He was only made Lord of Harrenhal in season 2, nothing more. You’re confusing it with the books. Walder Frey is the Lord of the Trident in the show.

        Quote  Reply

    26. TL: Perhaps but I think on the GoT wiki it is stated he is Lord of the Trident.

      The GoT wiki does not state that at all. If you don’t believe me, take a look for yourself. That was fixed long ago. Anyone can edit the wiki, and some people edit it sometimes to be in line with the books, instead of the show.

      However, there is no confusion about this issue in the show. In “Valar Morghulis”, Petyr is given Harrenhal and its lands; no mention at all is made of the seat of the Riverlands being changed to Harrenhal, or of Littlefinger becoming the Lord Paramount of the Trident. In “Oathkeeper”, when Sansa is recounting all the things the Lannisters have done for him, she brings up “wealth and power”, and specifically that they made him “the Lord of Harrenhal.” That’s the second opportunity for the change of seat and title of Lord of the Riverlands to be mentioned, but they weren’t. Previously, in “Mysha”, Walder Frey was made Lord of Riverrun; again, the seat of the Riverlands is not said to have shifted away from the traditional castle. This is reinforced by Brienne in “Mockingbird” and a farmer in “Breaker of Chains”.

      The Freys rule the Riverlands now; Petyr hasn’t even been implied to have anything to do with it. This is not unclear at all. The only reason for confusion is that it’s different in the books, but it’s been made pretty clear in the show. Put simply, the Freys weren’t snubbed as they were in the books, and they now rule the Riverlands not only de facto as in the books but de jure as well.

      The Farmer who Arya and the Hound bumped into seemed to imply they were under Frey rule, eg “things weren’t so bad when the Tully’s were in charge” etc, which could be the key to the RL, in the books certainly the smallfolk will have remembered that Edmure sheltered them so even if he is seen as something of a clutz that decision and having the smallfolk on side could end up making all the difference

      I reckon you may be correct, there could be a siege of Riverrun by BwB/Tully loyalists while the Lannisters/Tyrells are distracted in KL by the Sparrows, but Jaimie ends up going mid-season to try and get it back

      Otherwise it could just be split shooting for the same scene/s, eg do the scene with the tents etc at one point and then the different shots of the same scene involving the siege engines at a different location for logistical reasons

      You mean Jaime and his regrets towards Rhaegar and his children. I’m not really a fan of Jaime being kingmaker like some people present it. I think they will omit this and focus on Jaime and Brienne. Although, I would them to meet at some point.

    29. I don’t think there will be six literal armies. It’s just a tongue in cheek reference to reinforce the idea that this is a bigger battle than the Battle of Five Armies. It’s not meant to be taken literally.

    30. Dark Knight’s King,

      It’s basically Starks and their allies( little houses). Like Mormonts, Hornwoods. Wildlings, Umbers, Karstarks, Boltons and maybe Vale or what remained of Stannis’ army. Nearly half of his men deserted before he went on the march to Winterfell. Umbers and Karstarks are the big deal and along wth Boltons will greatly outmatched their opponents. Which is why they set it up in the blizzard like conditions and of course Wun Wun. 😀

    31. Yaga,

      We don’t have any sort of definitive list as to what’s left. We know that Rupert Vansittart is filming in December, and from the late castings there’s some filming remaining involving those new Northern lords and that other lord they were casting some time ago (region unspecified).

      I’m most interested to see how many sightings we get of Aidan Gillen, who has been virtually invisible so far this year; I believe he’s only known to have been filming once, at the beginning of August (and can probably be inferred to have been filming earlier, given that the actors playing Yohn Royce and Robin Arryn were filming in July).

    33. Bronn’s Bro.,

      No, that doesn’t follow. The Lannisters made him Lord of Harrenhal and gave him permission/orders to marry Lysa Arryn, becoming Lord Protector of the Vale. That more than suffices; there is absolutely no indication on the show that he’s meant to be in charge of the Riverlands, and multiple indications that the Freys are.

      When I first saw the Saintfield spoiler picture with the heap of battle dead, I instantly thought that they had all been gathered for burning. Which is why you see Wildlings, Boltons, Umbers etc…all piled up together. And I also thought that the only reason they were going to be burned was that Jon had somehow managed to convince all sides that the real enemy was the Others, and that the threat was imminent. So I’ve always expected that the Others would show up at the battle. And that Jon has assumed a leadership position at some point and is directing the burning of the dead., which would only happen if the Others made, or threatened, an appearance. Not a popular opinion, but I’m expecting to see something of the Others at the Battle.

      Those fake bodies were piled up because they weren’t filming at the moment and they hadn’t been properly posed in the battlefield yet. The WOTW article even warned about it.

      This is battle for the control of North and nothing more. WW could breach the Wall, but that’s ep. 9 or 10 moment not before. Nothing indicates of WW being there at the battle and they would need to break the Wall and it’s not going to happen before this episode. No way. I understand that you want to see more WW like many of us, but that was in last season. In the ideal world they should be united against them, but no way Boltons after what they did. So while Starks will serve their justice or at least that’s what I’m expecting. What I expect is that result of this battle for the control of the North will make it so much easier for WW. Bittersweet. I can see them approaching the Wall and making an attempt to breach it or simply to breach the Wall.

      That would be terribly anticlimactic. I’ve been waiting since 2011 to see Jon rain wildlings down on Ramsay’s head, and when it happens, I’m gonna need a moment to do a happy dance. I want to give this battle all the time it needs unlike the Battle of Castle Black which lasted 20 minutes too long with that intense music. I hope the Battle of the Snows is filmed in a similar style to Hardhome, especially the sound mixing/editing and the moments that were so quiet you could hear the winds howling. Most of all, I want drums and war horns IN, sounding in every direction. I suspect Ramsay burns his enemies alive at the start of battle to use their screams as war horns. I think we’ll get Meribald’s speech right before this battle.

      Casting called for a Green Recruit. Perhaps there will be some green boys in this battle. Perhaps there are some green boys standing at the very back and to the far right of this picture:

      Really? Those lines are just so… mundane. I guess that always felt like the dead horse being kicked so much in the books: that act really was concluded with the Red Wedding, yet GRRM lingered on it so long for no apparent reason. And as it includes none of the characters that will be important in the end, I think it very improbable that it will ever prove to be important. (Save for Arya’s three chapters, I suspect that Crows will be completely superfluous in the end.)

      That’s just it: the Red Wedding was not the end of that story. Indeed, the aftermath is where we see how badly the perpetrators erred. And the cited passage is very important to Jaime’s arc.

    41. Here is my wishlist of what would be totally awesome to see:

      Blackfish escapes the siege to become a leader among the Brotherhood Without Banners; Arya returns to the Riverlands and is reunited with Nymeria and through their mental connection, Arya becomes the leader of the massive wolf pack Nymeria has gathered. By previous association (though forced) to the BwB, and because she has a direwolf and a giant pack, she then becomes the leader of combined forces–BwB & Nymeria’s pack, and they set out to settle all debts incurred by Freys, Boltons, and Lannisters………maybe season 7………or not at all. But it’s cool to imagine

      Yes, it was the end of that story: Catelyn’s inability to reconcile her conflicted loyalties got herself and her son killed. What GRRM did was drag out the plot. Moreover, it did little to serve Jaime’s story: the key points that really show how he was not Tywin II come out elsewhere.

      That’s a very good point, actually. I have no answer to that. Then again, in my personal imaging of how the season will go, LF would mostly be absent, biding his time, letting the North bleed out and only appearing at the end to take control of Winterfell. Are we even positively certain that the Vale armies will be at the B6A?

    45. Yaga,

      On the contrary, there is nothing to indicate there are any Valemen at the battle. The actor playing Royce certainly didn’t film during that whole period, nor was there any sign of Gillen, nor any extras in Arryn garb.

      Thanks again. ? That’s what I’ve been thinking, but after some time, it’s hard to separate speculation from fact.

      One thing I find interesting is that, back in August, there was a group scene filmed in NI, with around 400 extras and horses, that we don’t know much about. It could have been the Dothraki (but this means that it was filmed long before the ‘recognisable’ Dothraki were cast). But maybe it could have been the Vale army doing… something?

      Hodor’s Bastard,
      In my view, LF’s unconscious desire, especially after Cat’s death, boiled down to usurping Ned. Becoming “Lord” of *Winterfell*, not of Riverlands or the Vale – and with a, yes, a redhead by his side. That’s why I personally continue to picture him in Winterfell before his downfall. But I acknowledge it’s just my personal unfounded idea.

      It’s been a very long time since I’ve read those pages. I don’t recall all of Jaime’s internal thoughts. I honestly don’t know what you’re talking about with the kingmaker comment, and about Rhaegar.
      I do remember that Jaime acknowledged (internally) his failure to uphold his oath to the Blackfish’s niece; I remember him having split feelings about respecting the Blackfish, but also needing to impose what his duty called of him; and I remember the Blackfish being very terse with him, and speaking negatively (perhaps quite intentionally) about the bastard up north.
      Of course, I could be all wrong. It’s happened many times before. I will have to reread this and other chapters before the season airs.

      Jaime is haunted by his failure to protect Rhaegar’s kids. If Jon is who we think he is. It’s one of his regrets and some people present theory about Jaime making Jon the King. Sort of a new Ser Criston Cole who served in the Kingsguard before. I though you were hinting on this.

    51. Hmm. Hodor’s Bastard, did you delete the post that I was responding to (re: King of Ashes), or did it get somehow… lost? I thought I lost a post yesterday as well.

      Angela,

      Lol.I cannot engage on this website on an iPad.The comments disappear often enough when the page times out and I have trouble selecting and copying an entire comment I’m about to post…. sooooooo.Yeah.Thanks for trudging through all that to respond.

      That’s how I remember things going from the book.I think the show will stick with this, rather than the blackfish and bwb taking the castle only to lose it again, etc….that seems convoluted.Easier to just explain that the Frey’s are a bunch of assclowns and have been posted up outside RR since shortly after the RW.Hence sending Lannister forces (led by Jaime no less) to break the siege.

      Unless of course there was confirmation otherwise that I have not heard… like Bradley filming on site (I doubt Walder himself would be present at the siege)

      Yeah.

      All you need to do is show how incompetent the freys are at breaking the RR siege and have Jaime come to resolve the problem. No complications.

      🙂 Sorry about that. It is still there. However, when a poster with an apostrophe edits their comment, WordPress doesn’t like it and sends it to moderation. Sue has warned me about this. I may change my handle soon to remove the apostrophe in order to oblige them.

      I was going to ask you how come you still had an apostrophe, ’cos I miss mine! I think a few of us changed ours a couple of months ago when we were having problems posting and all seems fine now. I’ve been learning about WordPress recently and it can be very fussy with certain things, apostrophes in user names being one of them 🙁

    55. Hodors Bastard,
      Ha ha. Sadly I think it would be so time consuming and difficult to program everything yourself rather than use the templates already set up in WordPress, it’s one of those things you have to put up with. But there are other sneaky things you can do that it doesn’t want you to, so I do those on our work intranet and snicker evilly to myself, while pretending to stroke a big fluffy white cat like a James Bond villain. *sigh* tiny things and tiny minds 😀

    57. Luka Nieto: Those fake bodies were piled up because they weren’t filming at the moment and they hadn’t been properly posed in the battlefield yet. The WOTW article even warned about it.

      I’ve been trying to find that in the original article, but no success. Just some speculation that it might be piled up awaiting filming. No comment from Sue that I could see. Could it have been discussed in a later article maybe?

      I guess that’s what I was remembering. It may have been only speculation, but it’s sound speculation. The corpses are not properly piled up, they have no makeup on, the place doesn’t look like the battlefield set…

      🙂 Yeah…maybe I’ll return to that one…(but it has bad karma associated with it). I appreciate the concern though. I’ll send out a press release when I make a decision.

    60. Geralt of Rivia,

      Oh, yes, I remember hearing of that theory. I was thinking mostly back to what I remember as the Blackfish’s harsh tone when talking to Jaime about Jon- I thought I remembered some talk of a deliberate approach taken by the Blackfish to keep Jaime disinterested in the theorized beneficiary of a certain will. I should go back and reread.
      I do like this kingmaker idea- would present another “full circle” in westerosi history, and also contribute to Jaime’s potential “redemption”.

      Hah!
      Yeah, PM should admit that he is done. He has fallen off his horse. But those Dornish from the desert held firm against the Wildlings. Dame Pasty should be proud. I’m also happy that the Boston Brothers without Banners stuck it to the Giants in the end. Although I weep for poor Wun Wun. And the most surprising was that the DC Tullys creamed the Faith Militant from the bayou. All things considered, a good day. 🙂

      Damn, you have seen through my disguise Mr(?) Bastard. But rather than using some very efficient method of definitely killing you oh-yes-indeedy-no-way-you-get-out-of-this-one-alive, I will put you in some really elaborate over-the-top death trap (that only a trillionaire like myself could possibly afford) and my henchmen and I will then all walk off and leave it unattended. I’m sure that will be a 100% full proof way of making sure you don’t tell others of my true identity! Mwah ha ha fear my evil genius plan, there’s NO WAY that could possibly go wrong 😉

      EDIT: Me no understand your conversation with Sister Kisser. Is it a sport thingy? Does WFL actually stand for What the F**k League? *confused evil face*

      “The photos shows the fake corpses including human and horse needed for the big battle shot in Saintfield. Bear in mind, all the props we see may be arranged differently on screen, as the photos were taken before filming began that day.”

      That’s pretty straightforward. It’s just a pile of props. We have no idea how they’ll be arranged in the scene. Obviously there are no filming people in the pics- this is way before filming time, so nothing is set up.

    64. Lulus Mum: Does WFL actually stand for What the F**k League?

      Yes…we have our own Westeros Football League (WFL). Since SK hails from the evil northwest and I hail from the east coast (but partial to Colorado) we sometimes have our post-battle jibjab on Mondays. At least that is what we want people to believe…it is really code for something much more devious…. 🙂

    65. Hodors Bastard,
      I’m afraid there’s only room for one evil genius to take over the world at a time, so you and SK are going to have to join the queue. It’s me next ‘cos I’ve already done the paperwork….wait how did you get out of the totally-100%-proof-no-way-is-there-a-flaw-in-this death trap? Excuse me while I go and glare at my hapless henchmen for letting you escape 😉

    67. It’s been so slow the last couple of days. What I wouldn’t give for a photo of McElhatton, Christie and David Bradley pretending not to be drunk and eating ice cream sandwiches in a Costcutter.

      Are those what you call plotholes?

      (PS: Luka and/or Wimsey: Yes I know that’s not the true definition of a “plothole”. I was being facetious.)

    69. Sue the Fury,

      I just thought it looked like an extremely disorganized way to store props. Would they really just throw them in a heap like that? How would they be able to find the one they were looking for if they were all jumbled up like that. Wouldn’t it damage them if they just tossed them like this? I will comfort myself by believing it’s a pile of bodies deliberately placed for a burning scene. Because it fits with my very biased belief that the Others are coming. Clinging to straws here.

      Double damn with a drat thrown in on top. If you want to do something properly you have to do it yourself. Harumph! *stomps off in a huff and kicks nearest defenceless inanimate object*

      I would have liked to see Wun Wun deny the BwB ANOTHER undefeated season! For me, the biggest surprise of the day was the Chequay lion of Osgrey (the colors just don’t work for the Lannisters) victory over the Butterwells!

      Ah…the demise of the Butterwells has been a surprise indeed. I think their great leader, Ser Aaron, has either been glamoured or cursed by that wicked purple priestess, Psylocke! Lucky bastard!

      Lucky Bastard indeed! Always had a crush on Psylocke growing up. I fear our own wildling warg may have lost himself in…. cat woman? (I think he must needs leave his vows behind and get in the damn cave with her….. cmon!)
