In the documentary “Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch” we get answers to some of the questions that were still open after the end of the eighth season of “GoT”. For example, where did Arya jump from when she kills the Night King …
With only six episodes, the eighth season of “Game Of Thrones” was the shortest of the entire series. However, at the beginning of the first episode, none of the viewers could guess who would be the big boss in the finale. Many bet on the King of the Night (Vladimir Furdik), who was annihilated in the third episode, and not by Jon Snow (Kit Harington), but by his cousin Arya Stark (Maisie Williams).
Arya kills the Night King, but where does he come from?
When all seems to be lost in the Battle of Winterfell in the episode “The Long Night”, Jorah (Iain Glen) dies at the gates of the fortress in the arms of Daenerys (Emilia Clarke) and Jon simply yells at the defenseless zombie dragon Viserion. , jump. Arya in the grove of the gods seemingly out of nowhere and kills the Night King. And only seconds before Bran (Isaac Hempstead-Wright) can drive his sword through the heart.
Many viewers were happy with Arya’s big moment, but also wondering where she was suddenly jumping from. The fact that the trained assassin can sneak up wonderfully can still be seen from her, but the jump “seemingly out of nowhere” could not be easily explained, as it seemed to leap onto the Night King from a height. Was it hidden in a tree? In the documentary “Game Of Thrones: The Last Watch”, which has been available on Sky since May 27, 2019, we now find out what answer the script has to offer to this riddle.
Arya’s big jump
During the big round of script reading prior to filming, each actor read their part, while producer and writer Bryan Cogman contributed director comments on the script. The moment Arya kills the Night King, which was cheered by the crowd by the way, the script reads: He leaps from a mountain of dead ghosts and throws himself at the Night King.
Well, during the battle, the bodies of both the slain people and the downed revenants, that is, the undead controlled by the Night King, piled up to form mountains. What do you all mean? Are you convinced of the idea that Arya started her giant leap from a mountain of corpses?
