'Game of Thrones' lockdown: HBO won't send press any season 6 episodes
'Game of Thrones' writer defends shocking Sansa scene
The above is a never-before-seen scene from season 5, a deleted outtake included on the HBO hit’s upcoming DVD and Blu-ray set.
The footage has the Night’s Watch’s menacing Master-at-Arms Ser Alliser Thorne (Owen Teale) and captured Wildling Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) tensely squaring off in the courtyard at Castle Black.
The scene, cut from last season’s premiere, lays the groundwork for the Night’s Watch internal power struggle over how to treat the migrating Wildling army that – spoiler alert for those are not caught up – leads to Thorne orchestrating the death of Lord Commander Jon Snow (Kit Harington). Notice Thorne’s very subtle lip curl when Tormond taunts him about no longer being in charge (and at this point in the season, neither was Snow, but that soon changed).
Bonus: Tormund actually makes a joke! (“Mutton’s a bit tough”).
season 5 DVD and Blu-ray is out March 15 – more than a month before season 6 premieres on April 24. The set contains the complete season, along with deleted scenes, audio commentaries, a documentary on the real-life European history that inspired
author George R.R. Martin, a deep-dive documentary into the season finale.
Previously, EW posted an excerpt from the season 5 DVD commentary where writer Bryan Cogman gives a heartfelt defense of the controversial Sansa wedding night scene.
