Check Out the GAME OF THRONES Featurette for “The Spoils of War”!

For those who have seen Sunday’s record-breaking episode of Game of Thrones, the extended video HBO just posted about the making of, which contains spoilers about the episode, should be a delight.

The episode, “The Spoils of War,” featured an epic battle that left most slack-jawed and clamoring for more. Indeed, the sequence featured an awesome dragon that made the end result all the more impressive. The cherry on top for fans was that the battle pitted beloved characters on both sides.

But what the video shows us is just how talented the HBO creative team is and how spectacular the end product really is. In it we can see up to ten stuntmen on fire, and we really get a sense for all the hard work that goes into making these episodes. Given how grand in scale the dragon sequence is, it’s not really surprising to see the intricate work the video shows. But it’s still pretty cool to go behind the scenes in this way and see where and how it all came from.

“We burned more stunt men than has ever been burned in a single shot, and a single sequence,” said director Matt Shakman in a recent interview, clearly excited about the work he has achieved.

Check out the video below!

Game of Thrones airs on HBO on Sundays at 9.
