Game of Thrones production in Northern Ireland appears to be filming the aftermath of military action. Book and potential show spoilers below.
According to @IrishThrones, the set in Corbet, Banbridge Northern Ireland features “horse trodden grass” and “bruised [t]rebuchet artillery” which suggests that they’re currently filming the aftermath of a siege.
Considering that the Riverlands are being filmed in various locations across Northern Ireland, this is is very likely the siege at Riverrun.
If this proves to be the case, the aforementioned trebuchet could factor into a memorable threat Jaime Lannister makes against Edmure Tully in A Feast for Crows. As book readers may recall, in an effort to coax Catelyn’s brother to surrender, Jaime warns him that, if he’s forced to storm the castle, he’ll “send” Edmure’s baby son to him … “in a trebuchet.”
