With the release of the exciting Entertainment Weekly cover story about Season 8 of Game of Thrones, the news machine for the final season seems to be rumbling into life — which is, hopefully, a good sign in terms of a release date drawing closer. While we wait, though, we can enjoy some never-before-seen photos of life behind the lens on the set of the world’s most popular TV series, thanks once again to Entertainment Weekly.

In an article released today, we get a sneak peek at filming previous seasons, with photos from the set going back as far as Season 2.

Included in the 16 photos are Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) riding a very strange-looking dragon:

It’s not exactly Season 8 news, but at least it’s something fun to keep us occupied!

    1. I love these! I gotta say, kudos to Dean-Charles for doing his own faceplant. It doesn’t look high up, but with your arms at your side, it’d be a bit nerve wracking.

    2. My favorites are the Tommen (LOL) and Conleth lint-rolling Lena…those things are among the most indispensable pieces of technology in either world.. ;p

    3. Shelle,

      Love the looks on Iain and Peter’s faces in the background of the lint-rolling pic.

      Ten Bears the gallery is kinda wonky. I had to click backwards from the initial link to find all the pics.

    4. Oh my goodness, I hadn’t even zoomed in enough to catch those details…my favorite of which is B-] Qyburn.

      Yeah, the slideshow worked horribly for me too. Frustrating; why can’t they just put them all on one page that loads simply and quickly…

    5. The Richard Brake Altar of Winter photo doesn’t add up. That’s not what the NK looked like in season 4. His face was white and not as detailed. And he didn’t have that outfit on. I wonder why they would change it, the photo looks much better.

    6. Aggghhh stop it! I can’t see anything except old covers😠 and 4 of the photos. I have tried going back and the same happens again.

    7. Carole H,

      Hi Carole, what link are you clicking on? Click on ‘article’ (in blue and underlined) above and that should take to direct to the photos rather than the covers.

      I was just thinking that! So he just fell on his face? Ouch! Even on a mat!

    9. And where are the rest of the pics?
      When I go to that page, all I see is a slideshow with few pics behind the scenes and a lot of cover photos. :-/

      Where’s the Qyburn wirth sunglasses? I haven’t even seen it yet :-/

    10. Seeing the Night King with the baby reminds me that there was a time when I thought the Walkers were after baby Sam. When Sam and Gilly ran off into the woods with the baby, a walker tracked them all the way to the abandoned hut. Gilly yelled It’s here for the baby!.

      That was the point where Craster’s keep was burned and his daughter/wives dispersed. By the way, whatever happened to them? They declined to go with Jon to the wall. I presume they’re still north of the wall. How are they surviving up there?

      My point is that there are no more baby sacrifices, and Sam jilted them when he rescued Gilly’s baby. Are they still hunting for baby Sam? Maybe sacrificed baby boys have something to do with their survival?

      On an ugly note, this was after the Night’s Watch mutiny and rape. It’s possible some of Craster’s daughters were pregnant afterwards and subsequently gave birth. It’s a long shot, I know. But it’s a loose end I always wondered about.

    11. I am betting that Dean Charles did NOT face plant.

      This photo has him just out the window feet just detached. He still has time to put his hands out and even bend his knees depending on how he wants to land. A stunt person would have taught him how to do it.

      I would need a photo of him closer to impact or on impact to be sure that he did deliberately faceplant his pretty actor’s face and risk injury to his neck as well.

    12. Anon,
      It was never written that they only got babies from Craster. I believe they were known to take wildling babies and then there are stories of wildlings giving them women they’d kidnapped during raids south of the Wall. That’s neither here nor there at this point in the story though since there was hardly anyone left beyond. Will the NK continue to search for babies in the 7K or has that time passed now that he’s begun his ultimate trek (for whatever that purpose is)?

    13. Che: I was just thinking that! So he just fell on his face? Ouch! Even on a mat!

      Yeah it looks like a mat on top of empty boxes. What makes me laugh though, is that the marks on the mat have me visualizing previous faceplant attempts. “MAKEUP! Take 5…please touch up King Tommen’s foundation…” I’m sure that isn’t what it is, but I’m in a weird mood. 🤪

      Maybe not, it really isn’t that serious. But unless they spliced the scene somehow, he pretty much free falls out the window, so putting out his hands/bending knees would have to be after he’d gone below the level of the window, which is barely possible. Whatever, just the thought that crossed my mind amused me.

      It is very funny! I still am looking to really see if it is a stunt person. I am not sure how Dean does it…..

      plus if you want to kill yourself you can jump out a window far less tidily than that and you will still die. I am not sure why he flopped out the window like a dead fish. Mainly to amuse and because it looked great from behind I suppose.

    15. Shelle: Conleth lint-rolling Lena…

      So Varys did betray Daenerys after all. He’s supposed to do that with Dany’s clothes.

      And on top there are these looks of Jorah and Tyrion. That makes three betrayals in one shot. 🤪

      OUCH, that is too much to bear!! Maybe a little Dracarys will be in order after all. *rings the Bell of Shame behind those three*

    17. I really hope these little press snippets are leading up to the final teaser and some sort of confirmation of when we will get S8 even if everyone seems reasonably certain it will be between March and May. I’d be well happy with a line of dialogue and GOT the final season returns April 2019 it would keep us all happy for now.
