I think in Winter is finally here in Westeros—and that means the White Walkers aren’t far behind.

“No film or TV show has ever done that in a whole show, let alone in one sequence.
We also set 20 people on fire at one time, which is also a record.
Production on the show started later than any previous season, pushing the premiere date to July rather than the usual April start time.
The delay wasn’t a cruel prank on the fans—the producers had no choice but to wait for snow to film the scenes that take place in Winterfell and north of The Wall. “So we kind of pushed everything down the line, so we could get some grim grey weather even in the sunnier places that we shoot.” With Martin still toiling away on the latest book in the series, the show has sped past where the novels left off, leaving all fans—book readers and show watchers alike—completely in the dark about where the story will go.
