- Game of Thrones fans discovered that the show forgot to edit Daenerys onto Drogon while they burned down King’s Landing.
- Reminder: GoT also accidentally left a coffee cup and water bottle in shots this season.
Whether you loved or hated the final season of Game of Thrones, we can all agree that it was pretty sloppy in the editing department. In just six episodes, the show managed to accidentally include a coffee cup in one of Daenerys’ shots, and left a rogue water bottle by Sam’s leg during the final episode of the series. And now fans have discovered yet another editing fail from the show’s penultimate episode.
You know the scene in question all too well: When Daenerys hears the bells and goes full blown Mad Queen, burning down most of King’s Landing while riding around on Drogon’s back. The thing is, it looks like the Game of Thrones Powers That Be casually forgot to edit Emilia Clarke onto her dragon in one of the scenes.
Here’s a screen grab of the moment in question that was posted on Reddit:
It seems likely that the show simply forgot to CGI Dany onto Drogon during this scene, but the fan theorist in me wants to believe that this proves Daenerys actually had nothing to do with the massacre at King’s Landing (we never saw a shot of her face during it!) and that Drogon was acting out solo due to being controlled by Evil Bran. But ugh, I know, I know…wishful thinking.
