As we’ve been seeing more of Winterfell in the final season of HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ it has become obvious that there have been a few changes and a new 20-minute behind-the-scenes video from HBO shows what they are! The entire set has not only been rebuilt but expanded upon to make it ready for the horde of new actors who are appearing as well as prepare for the coming weekend’s battle.
The video was released during the second episode of behind-the-scenes series “The Game Revealed” and you can check it out right here:
While 20-minutes isn’t considered short in terms of behind-the-scenes featurettes, it also feels like quite a bit was skimmed over or cut with how much work was preparing this location for filming.

If you’re wanting more than just set design, they also go into how director David Nutter brought the fireplace scene to life followed by the sequence of Brienne of Tarth officially becoming a knight of the realm. While we’re all amped up for the action to come, these will likely go down as some of the more memorable scenes from the series for at least Brienne.
