It’s been a while since we’ve had a filming update post. Since our last update, the team has finished filming in Croatia (no more set photos for us) and also completed a grueling two weeks of night shoots in Northern Ireland that were the filming of the Blackwater scenes. We believe these were filmed at the “mystery castle” set in Magheramorne quarry.
The production has now moved back to Northern Ireland where one team has worked on location, filming the rest of the Winterfell scenes, while another has worked in the Paint Hall, filming many of the interior stuff. There have also been reports that they may be returning to the site of the hurricane damaged set to either resume filming scenes of Renly’s camp (the picture above is from yesterday and clearly shows the set has been reconstructed), or possibly to reshoot some stuff that may have been unusable due to the extreme weather. There is also a report they may be using the Carrick-a-Rede rope bridge this time around. Also, in the next week or two, filming should begin in Iceland.
At this point, we have gotten pretty deep into filming and there are many scenes that are “in the can.” Let’s take a look at what has already been filmed and what is still left to film … (some minor spoilers after the break)
Filming complete, confirmed
All King’s Landing exterior scenes
All Qarth exterior scenes
Filming complete, speculative
Dragonstone exterior scenes
Storm’s End exterior scenes

Beyond the Wall
Winter Is Coming: Keep in mind, most of the above is speculative, based off of reports we have received. The only reason we can confirm that the King’s Landing and Qarth exteriors are complete is because we know they are finished filming in Croatia. As for the rest, we know some stuff has been filmed, but it is always possible they may do more later on. But as it stands, it seems most of season two is complete. It looks to me like they filmed things much more efficiently this season as opposed to last, which is a good thing.
