The official @GameofThrones Twitter account despatched the Web right into a frenzy on Monday, when it tweeted three transient phrases that on the time of this writing had been favorited nearly half 1,000,000 instances: “Winter is coming.”
Alas, it appears to have been a reference to one thing a bit extra pedestrian than the massive, thrilling Westerosi news that followers had been hoping for. Like, possibly phrase that George R.R. Martin had completed writing the following guide, or some new tidbit associated to HBO’s prequel series. However no.
That Twitter account instantly adopted up with the announcement of the present’s Season 8 DVD and Blu-ray packages that will likely be accessible this coming Tuesday, good for that Thrones fan you’ll be looking for this Christmas:
What’s extra, Leisure Weekly has gotten unique entry to a deleted scene displaying a bit extra of Tyrion and Sansa hiding out within the crypts through the Battle of Winterfell episode – footage that ended up getting minimize for some inexplicable motive.
Keep in mind that second through the episode, because the battle raged exterior and we all started to fret about wights getting re-animated within the crypts throughout them, when Tyrion and Sansa have been crouched down and shared that look with every other? A type of are-you-thinking-what-.’m-thinking, . don’t wish to die, however if . do .’m glad it’s with you sorts of appears?
Within the scene (which you possibly can verify out right here), Gilly, baby Sam, and others attempt to keep hidden in silence whereas the undead move round within the crypt — that’s, till the scared younger tyke starts crying, letting the undead zero in for the kill. This scene, which is clearly a tough take that hasn’t been given a polish but from the present’s technical wizards, then exhibits Tyrion and Sansa treating the undead to the business finish of some dragonglass — a satisfying second that, as we famous earlier, was bizarrely left out of the present for some motive. After all, The Lengthy Night time episode was already in peril of being overlong, however that didn’t cease it from being the final nice episode of the present, which followers can take pleasure in yet again come December 3 with the home launch of Season 8.
