Problems on Game of Thrones Kaštel Gomilica set; Spanish filming dates revealed

igretop

After an eventful day of filming yesterday at Kaštel Gomilica, problems arose today on the Game of Thrones set.

Slobodna Dalmacija has provided images which show that significant storm damage was dealt to the set at Kaštel Gomilica, preventing filming from occurring today. The weather forecast remains stormy, leaving the fate of tomorrow’s filming unknown.

More images and major season 5 spoilers below the cut!

We do have details on one of the scenes that was filmed at the Kaštel yesterday, however, involving “Cat of the Canals”. Our source tells us that Maisie Williams was pushing a cart across a bridge on set, shouting “Oysters, clams and cockles!”.

In other news, extras casting for Spain takes place tomorrow and the next day (September 2nd & 3rd) in Osuna. Filming will take place in Osuna and at the Alcázar de Seville, which will both be used to represent various areas in Dorne and Meereen.

We already knew that filming at the Alcázar would take place from October 14th-22nd, but we now know that the overall Spanish shoot will run from October 10th right through to October 29th. A total of 500 people, equally divided between male and female, will be chosen as extras.

    2. Happens when everything is just held together by papier mâché and plaster… *irony off*

      It doesn’t look too bad judging from the pictures but maybe they can work the storm damage into the story… weather happens in normal life too I guess 😉

    4. I have a feeling Arya in Braavos will be my favorite part of season 5, both because of how it looks like it’s shaping up, and because it was one of my favorite parts of the books.

    5. Walter Harrow,

      I’m more worried that it will actually be one of the weakest parts, unless they rush through the AFFC/ADWD material and delve into some TWOW/created stuff. I think the Northern storyline and

      Cersei’s downfall in KL

      will be the best part of the season. But that is just personal preference, as I didn’t like Arya in Braavos, outside of the chapter where she

      bumps into Sam and kills Dareon.

      Don’t get me wrong, there’s a lot I’m looking forward to in Season 5: the north, KL, and I’m very interested to see how Dorne ends up going, too. I would be really disappointed if they rushed through Arya’s AFFC/ADWD material. As I already said, it was one of my favorite parts in the books. As it sounds like you didn’t enjoy most of that particular story line, it makes sense you’d hope they’d rush through it.

    7. Tyrion Pimpslap,

      I liked Arya in Braavos, but wouldn’t say it’s my favorite. I think the fact that there are only 5 chapters (6 with Mercy) means that they’ll cover them all in a good pace (not blowing through it but not taking their time either). It will probably end up being much better in the show since it’s all in the same season. Arya’s AFFC arc wasn’t much at all and I can see why you’d dislike it, but paired with her ADWD chapters and Mercy (and rearranged with some added Jaqen stuff) could potentially be the highlight of the season. That is, unless they do justice to the Northern storyline (but it’s missing a couple of major castings so far).

    8. Cat of the Canals! I love Arya’s journey in Braavos. Can’t wait to see it come to life. Hope that we get some photos of other as-yet-unannounced characters from this storyline…

      Cat of the Canals! Interesting the order they seem to be filming her arc.

      Cat is before Mercy. And Mercy was shot by the looks of it on previous days. I am of the belief that Tyrell and Trant will be involved in the Mercy preview chapter plot with Ser Meryn replacing Raff. Mine is speculation, it goes without saying.

      TheTouchOfFrost,

      I lol-ed at your comment.

      Arya’s time in Braavos has potential to be the best part of Season 5, if they dedicate enough time to it

      I can’t wait! Arya’s time in Bravvos is my absolute favorite. D&D have strayed quite a bit with her arc but even with the changes, her material in season 2-4 has been some of the most interesting and entertaining for me. Loved the fanfic version of her and Tywin at Harrenhal and all the delicious bits with Sandor, though that was far more canon, was great stuff. If nothing else, D&D seem to be dedicated to keeping Arya (semi)canon for book readers. Hope Cat lives up to the books. Not worried about Maisie delivering, just the writers not skimming over her story line.

      OMG ! (:

      off topic : I know you might have talked about it before but there was news about new characters months ago before the comic con if I am not mistaken among the names there was the waif

      and a septa and Moqoro

      ,, I hope we hear about them soon <

      and do you think Doran will have a

      wheelchair

      or feet (:

      and what will the dark star figure will be doing in the dorn plot ?

      I wouldn’t be surprised if they had Arya and Trant talk a little Syrio before she sticks the knife in him. That could be interesting…

      jentario,

      Arya’s story line in Braavos isn’t my favorite, either. Of course, a Jaqen reappearance could change my opinion. Regardless of my personal preferences, I am sure that Maisie will do these scenes justice. Very curious to see if John Bradley shows up here because that will tell us a lot about Sam’s story line. I am most interested in the events in the North (at WF and the Wall) but I also have concerns about the (so far) missing characters. This can’t go forward without Manderly, can it?

    16. Turncloak,

      Interesting idea but Mance doesn’t really have a motive for doing that…

      The only reason I can see why they would cut Wyman is if they bring back the Greatjon to take his place. Wyman would be the only proper new character needed for the Northern storyline – the only other new faces would be a couple of spearwives and a Frey representative although they could use the already cast Black Walder and Lame Lothar. I would be very surprised and disappointed if Wyman is cut.

    17. lucy,

      That is obviously something anyone could write up in 2 seconds but I can’t help but think that it does seem legit. Facebook pages have posted correct things about the show way in advance before…

    18. wizardeyes,

      I’m wondering if Craster’s Wives will become Mance’s Spearwives? I wouldn’t be averse to it and would give more merit to why they went back to Craster’s Keep in the show.
      I wouldn’t mind the Greatjon taking Manderly’s place for pie/stroyline purposes although I guess that will depend on where Rickon and Osha have gone (Last Hearth may replace Skagos?).

    19. lucy,

      I agree, with the necklaces for instance, Cersei knowing it was Jaime who freed Tyrion, Stannis gaining the wildling army instead of the northern army (makes sense). Those changes sound legit and would fit with what the show’s done before. If true, I would actually be pretty happy with it (apart from skipping Pentos and the Griffs)

    20. lucy,

      I still remember before the season 3 finale a guy who described in detail a scene with Tywin shaggy dogging Shae which obviously didn’t happen,trolls have a lot of time on their hands to invent anything especially if they know it may tick someone off,trust me on this,unless he provides at least a pic of the scripts i’m going to assume he is full of shit for now .

    21. Dutch maester,

      Yeah its things like that and the dead viper in the box that makes it seem legit – thats exactly the kind of thing the show would invent – I can imagine them using that scene as a way to segue into our first Dorne scene with Doran berating the sand snakes for sending the box.

      Also – starting with a flashback seems like something they might do as season 4 started with a very different – very stylized scene – season 5 could do the same.

      If this is legit (obviously we’re taking it with a pinch of salt) the biggest news from this is that Varys is supporting Dany which would pretty much confirm that Griff is cut.

    22. wizardeyes,
      TheTouchOfFrost,

      I’m not sure that we will get Frey Pie at all. However, the plans/motivations of the Northern lords has to be established: their loyalties to the Starks, their rage over the RW, their awareness of the Boltons treachery, etc. Truthfully, Manderly’s actions can be given to another lord…one of the Umbers maybe…but someone has to present that point of view. I’m not advocating that Manderly be eliminated but his role could be given to another. Since we did see a Wendell Manderly at the RW, I am hopeful that casting news is still coming. (My biggest disappointment with the show was the lack of presence of “named” Northern lords and their armies fighting and dying with Robb at the RW.) Please, I want Wylla, too, and her great speech.

      Looking forward to TWOW and beyond…

      I also think that their support of Stannis is temporary, at best. Once Manderly produces Rickon, they will declare for the the King in the North.

    23. Fury, are we 100% sure that the brothel you mentioned last week is in Volantis and not near Volantis? Because if Tyrion and Jorah meet there like in the books, it makes sense for them to do some river time before reaching the city. If not, then we know for sure that the brothel scene isn’t where they meet but is something else, and that the Griffs are probably cut.

        Quote  Reply

    24. wizardeyes,

      Agree – there is enough in that leaked script to make it believable but I am still skeptical. This one, in particular, seems off: “Daario and Hizdar come back from being in Yunkai and tell her to attack Yunkai first with her dragons”.

    25. I have been looking forward to these Braavos scenes ever since i learned that they were going to film the book. In truth, i never really believed they would get this far and i give thanks to the Seven every day and beg forgiveness for my shallowness of belief at such an occurance coming to pass.

      However, i am a mere mortal and i find that i am sore afraid. The root cause of my malaise is the pictures which have come down from Braavos showing the despicable Trant and servile Tyrell at the docks. Now i have no problem with these Harys Swift/ Raff the Sweetling cyphers arriving but they are too early: they should not arrive until next year/season 6. The chapters set in Braavos are gorgeous to me. If i were to live somewhere in the world it would be there – being a free man in a cosmopolitan city with exoticism, docks, grand buildings, eroticism, grubby alleys, divergent religions, shadowy corners and clean water. I want this detailed to me through Arya’s journey and that is considerable journey. A mere five chapters but what a five chapters they are. I want to see the House of Black and White, I want to meet its inhabitants, I want to wander the streets with Blind Beth, toss an oyster to Rollo, sup in the Black Bargeman, spend my wages in The Blue Latern, wander the Ragman’s Harbour and attend a play on the Mummer’s Ship.

      Likewise Arya must deal with all those issues of grief, loss and separation. It’s going to take more than one season. It’s come too quick. The pale Gods of TV have been seduced by a tawdry brevity for the sake of narrative completion at the expense of the sad sisters of Mercy.

    26. Apparently they are still filming today in Toomebridge CoAntrim and some people reports there is a lot of activity, big screens along road bridge, security everywhere and

      Peter and Iain have been spotted. Not news about other actors being there though..

      I’m in agreement here. Plus, he’s a minor character otherwise – 2 episodes would be enough. The other Northern lords are all background types, and the Freys could easily just be Black Walder and Lame Lothar, and as long as they have their signature idiot hats they wear. And from there you just need an actor to play Wyman who would do it up with relish like BRIAN BLESSED!

      The Facebook comment was edited so he could have easily been editing it as new information trickled in. The bit about Volantis for example is recent information. However, if his Volantis information was already there in Mid-August when he initially made his post than this might be legit. Maybe this guy is Patchyface for all we know

    29. Turncloak,

      It sounds vaguely legitimate, but nothing that cannot be guessed or invented by anyone paying attention. Actually, I’d say there are a couple of stretches there; we haven’t heard anything about Kevan and Lancel and, although that would be the perfect introduction for them, I don’t know they will be back at all. We’ll see.

    30. Is Arya speaking Braavosi? It’s one aspect of her story I hope that they won’t change.

      I was wondering, while filming in Croatia, are they still filming in NI?

      If you check the edit history (click on “Edited” on the post) it does appear that the Volantis information was in the original post from August 13th. Perhaps this is legit!

      It does seem like a lot to fit into one season, but hopefully they will at least make Braavos a big part of the season. I hope they don’t cut

      Sam, Gilly, Aemon and Dareon’s visit to Braavos.

      If I had to guess, I’d say that Blind Beth might get cut, since they haven’t yet hinted at

      Arya’s warging ability

      at all, which is an important aspect of that storyline.

      If Mace & Meryn arrive very late in the season (which they should if they’re following Harys & Raff’s path), it could give enough time to handle the story fairly well.

      If it were up to me, I’d have:

      Episodes 1-4: Arya arrives in Braavos, gets rid of her possessions, begins training, becomes Cat of the Canals. Samwell deals with election of LC, begins journey to Braavos. According to some rumors, Jaqen will be filling in for Kindly Man, which seems fine to me.

      Episodes 5-6: Sam’s visit to Braavos. Sam meets Arya, then punches Dareon, and finds a ship. Disguised Jaqen (“Alchemist” face) is also on the ship with Sam. Arya kills Dareon.

      Episodes 7-9: Arya’s first assassination job. (Waif could take over training duties). It might be possible to fit Blind Beth here, or they could skip right to the assassination since she seems capable of killing (or combine the two segments somehow). Aemon dies on the way to Oldtown. Possibly we could see Sam and Gilly arriving at Oldtown, or at least seeing it on the horizon, but I expect they’ll wait until next season to cast the Citadel characters.

      Episode 10: Mace & Meryn arrive. Mercy for Meryn. If they follow the book, this should happen after The Walk, so I’m guessing it would have to be episode 10 (or 9 at the earliest) unless they really change up the order of things.

      If they haven’t cut the Iron Islands and Oldtown storylines completely, I’d guess that the conquest of the Shield Islands will be completely off-screen (naval battles are expensive, and that one doesn’t involve any returning characters from previous seasons) We could see Cersei getting some reports of it, causing some arguments with the Tyrells. We might also see some signs of recent battle when Samwell, Gilly (and Jaqen perhaps) arrive in Oldtown.

      I hope that Jaqen’s infiltration of the Citadel (as well as Sam’s training there) becomes a sigificant part of the end game, bringing the Citadel and the Faceless Men fully into The Game of Thrones.
