There have been several reports regarding a potential prequel show to HBO’s Game of Thrones, but with season 7 set to come next year and season 6 recently hitting Blu-ray, there’s still plenty to focus on the current series at the moment.
Many people will agree that season six of Game of Thrones was one of the shows best ever with some amazing back to back episodes in “The Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter.”
Early last week, a deleted scene from season 6 involving Lady Olenna Tyrell alongside her son Mace Tyrell ‘the lord oaf of Highgarden’, surfaced online, and now we have another two extended scenes from the show that you guys can have a look at.
The first takes place in the wake of Jon Snow’s betrayal and murder at the hands of his sworn brothers, we can see Dolorous Edd rushing to return to his friend’s side with Ghost. The pair are bump into Ser Alliser Thorne, who thinks twice about forcing Edd to send the vengeance-hungry direwolf back beyond The Wall.
The other scene features an extended version of the performance of “The Bloody Hand,” which Arya watches during her storyline in Braavos, the scene included a group of traveling actors making fun of the Lords of Westeros. We were introduced to Lady Crane and her lively crew (including a character played by the talented Richard E. Grant) although not everything filmed was shown during the series.Now due to season six’s DVD release, a number of deleted and extended scenes have been uploaded online, including one of the show’s play. One such interesting scene is when an audience member says “violence and profanity, how original,” to which Arya replies: “Why don’t you just leave then?”
As we all know George RR Martin’s novels as well as the HBO series have often been criticized for being overtly violent so maybe this might be a reference to that?
Season 7 of Game of Thrones airs this summer
