Go behind the scenes of the epic Hardhome sequence from Game of Thrones

If you are not caught up through the eighth episode of this season of Game of Thrones, I would not venture much further in this story. The concluding section of the show featured a massive deviation from the source novels and showcased what many are considering the most epic battle sequence in small screen history. The events of the Massacre of Hardhome were no small undertaking and a new featurette explores all of the work that went into pulling off the effects and stunts for the show.

Clearly, HBO is responding to the social media response to the episode and are milking it for everything they can. This featurette clearly looks like it was intended for the forthcoming Blu-ray release of the season but it was very smart to share it now. I cannot compare the hour to anything else I have seen on the small screen and that is saying something. Way to raise the bar, HBO. Well done.

On top of the featurette, there is also a fun little cool video that syncs the scene to Michael Jackson's "Thriller". Again, spoilers abound, so don't watch if you haven't seen the show.

The final two episodes of Game of Thrones' fifth seaon air June 7th and 14th on HBO.

the final battle in Spartacus definitely overatkes this easily. You can see whats going on, not just a mish mash of grey. Though this was very well done.

They really need to tie up the loose ends quickly.....

Then do a Game Of Thrones movie to end the series instead of just a big series finale. The idea of multiple armies (headed by Dany and her dragons) vs the White Walkers and their minions is simply too big for any tv show. If they dial down the nudity and body parts talk (I don't think I've heard the "C" word dropped that much in every show I've ever seen combined), adults would bring their teens to see a straight war film to end the series.

Or they could do it with the nudity & language

Or they could do it with the nudity & language and still pull a big audience of adults. Either way would be better than trying to do it in a TV show on cable (with 3/4 of the viewers being non-HBO subscribers watching it on free sites).
