The last episode of The Game of Thrones has raised the expectation level of the audiences and the wait for the finale seems tougher. While fans called episode 6 by far the best of the season, there was a lot that went behind while filming the ice battle, which resulted in the killing of one of Daenerys Targaryen’s dragons by the Night King.
It was an epic battle between Jon and his team and the army of the dead, the White Walkers. And it became even more intense when the battle was joined by Daenerys Targaryen and her dragons.
As you may have guessed, the episode was high on visual effects and computer generated imagery. Now, HBO has released the behind the scenes video, in which the director, cast as well as the crew reveals what efforts and hardships they went through while filming the scene.
