Watch out, spoilers!
ATTENTION! Next come the significant spoilers for the third episode of the final season of the game of thrones. If you do not want to read them, we recommend our prediction article, in which we assume who will eventually survive in the series and who will sit on the Iron Throne.
At the end of the third series, Arya dealt with the King of the Night, one of the main antagonists of the series, that embodies the inevitable threat of the North. It has spread in many fragments of ice, and the black magic that sustains the dead has disappeared – all the undead rested once and for all.
Many fans this turn, to say the least, surprised and indignant. Fans were dissatisfied with the way the creators of the show portrayed the climax of the battle – what, could you just sneak into the Night King and stab him with a knife? Well, yes, this is a Valyrian steel dagger, but could it have been possible to overcome such a powerful creature with a penis?
Yes, if you know where to hit.
David Benioff and DB Weiss in the off-screen video about the creation of the third episode shared some details about this scene. They explained that they had been preparing heroin for this result for several years and now she was able to take advantage of the little vulnerability of the Night King. And yes, they considered the option that it was John who could kill the leader of the dead, but decided not to.
We hoped to avoid what was expected. John Snow has always been a hero and a savior, but it seemed wrong to make him a hero in this scene.
We knew this [причиной смерти] Valirian steel should become, a coup should be made in the same place where the Forest Sons put a piece of a blade to create the King of the Night. It was not created by Valian Steel.
It is not known how Arya guessed where to hit – maybe behind the scenes, Bran could tell her about it. Although initially in a leap the heroine aimed at a completely different place.
The video about the creation of the third episode takes forty minutes and shows how the authors performed a large-scale work.
The fourth episode will be released on the night of May 5-6, was put by David Nutter (he was responsible for the first two series of this season).
