It's A Wrap!

Principal photography on HBO's first season of GAME OF THRONES has now wrapped.

Which is not to say the work is done. Now comes editing, special effects, scoring, and all the other behind-the-scenes stuff that makes up post production. The cast and crew get to go home for a while; for the producers, the road goes ever on and on.

My mom is reading "A Game of Thrones". We'll probably get my whole family to read the whole series in anticipation of the series.

It'll be curious to see where it diverges from the books. Mr. Martin has no doubt had many ideas about what must be done to adapt the novels, given his experience as a television producer. I noticed that in the opening execution scene shown in the second trailer, it appeared to be Will that was being executed, rather than his elder superior who was executed in the books. This is a pretty sensible change since it will be easier to identify Will as the lone survivor from the opening attack of the Others.


Will they really kill ****** off at the end of the season?

** Slightly-spoiling response to spoiler question... **

Why in the world wouldn't they kill *****? It must be hard enough to write the screen plays for these things without adding such a huge plot-modifier. And from a purely production point of view loosing that char will free the most famous and therefore most expensive actor from the payroll. Something they'll need to do to hire all the new book 2 characters for the second season.

"Will they really...?"
Westeros ain't Narnia. I hate to break it to you.

But Will didn't survive the first scene, only Gared...

For him to be executed you would either need to have Gared face the wight-ified Royce instead or none of them, and half the "punch-line" of the prologue scene was to see Royce rise up, IMO.
It does seem like Will rather than Gared being executed, but I hope they either made Gared younger or at least didn't ruin the punch-line.
I guess they could do this by having Will not go down from his tree, and for budgetary reasons I bet they just offed Gared altogether from the script. Either way it would still feel a bit off, not even getting the prologue "right".

Does someone know for sure if they changed it so it's Will getting executed?
