The Game of Thrones production has wrapped filming in Spain, but there’s still much to be done elsewhere. The crew is still hard at work in and around Belfast, where it’s been shooting a major action scene at the nearby Wolf Hill Quarry. Now, we have more information about what will go on there. Beware SPOILERS below.
The crew has constructed an icy, snowbound set at Wolf Hill Quarry, complete with a green screen and an island in a frozen lake.

According to spoiler reports, this scene will involve several major characters—among them Jon Snow, Tormund Giantsbane, and Jorah Mormont—and 300 extras playing wights. Clearly, the guys get into some trouble beyond the Wall. Director Alan Taylor has also been spotted in the area, meaning that the action scene will take place in Episode 6 of Season 7. (And keep in mind that Season 7 will only have a total of seven episodes.)
Now, a new face has turned up. Check out this photo of the actions with fans in Belfast:
That’s Iain Glen (Jorah), Kristofer Hivju (Tormund), and…Joseph Mawle (Benjen Stark). Benjen was last seen dropping Bran and Meera off an unreasonably long distance from the Wall in “The Winds of Winter.” Now he’s dining with actors known to be filming at Wolf Hill Quarry. The odds that he’ll be part of that icy action scene are good.
