In this week’s Inside the Episode David Benioff and Dan Weiss take us behind the scenes of “First of His Name” for a closer look at Daenerys’ realization that conquering is not the same as ruling, and Bran’s quest to find the three eyed raven almost becoming sidelined by an encounter with his brother. They also discuss the symbolism of burning Craster’s Keep at the end of the episode.
In an additional behind the scenes feature this week, Director Michelle MacLaren breaks down how she approached filming the battle at Craster’s Keep. Actors Mark Stanley and Kit Harington, and Stunt Coordinator David Forman also talk about the stunt work.
