HBO’s Game of Thrones is known for having jaw-dropping, shocking moments that leaves the Internet talking for days but for many, portions of this latest season have seemed slower. This is excluding, the now infamous “hold the door” moment, which left many in an emotional state of shock.
Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Jaime Lannister, spoke with TV Line about this current season and why fans have to be patient.
“It’s funny. I think a lot of things happen in every episode. But, I mean, I get it. People are spoiled — in a good way! — and you expect some crazy stuff. But it’s been like that every year.”
Coster-Waldau explained that with a show like Thrones, it’s important to build up to these unforgettable and larger than life moments.
“You also know that there’s a reason why. You can’t hit the maximum volume each episode. Then you get numb to it. It has to build up. You have to tell a story, lay the seeds. Then hopefully — and I believe — the payoff is so much better and so much greater, instead of just getting everything at once.”
This Sunday’s “The Battle of Bastards” is likely to be one of those episodes that leaves the Internet talking and fans happy. Heroic’s own Sam Flynn wrote up his five predictions for what will happen during “The Battle of Bastards.” Check out his piece here and read his full recap Sunday evening.
