The Game of Thrones production continues to operate in Iceland near the the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon. Let’s talk about the latest arrivals. Be forewarned: there will be SPOILERS in this post.
Yesterday, we reported that Kit Harington (Jon Snow) had shown up in the area. He turned up in another photo today.
According to one of the crew members on site, the show will be in Iceland for “a couple of weeks.” That means filming outdoors in freezing temperatures, although it looks like temperatures in the area will climb starting this weekend. Still, we hope Harington and everybody else on the shoot stays warm.
According to SPOILERS, Jon Snow will head north of the Wall late in the season, probably in Episode 6. As a cursory glance at pictures will tell you, the Jökulsárlón glacial lagoon would double nicely for the snowy areas beyond the Wall. (Also, the show has filmed in Iceland before. It stood in for areas beyond the Wall in Seasons 2 and 3.)
According to those same spoilers, Jon will have company on his quest in the form of Tormund Giantsbane, Jorah Mormont, and the Hound. While there’s no photographic proof as yet, there are reports that Iain Glen (Jorah) is also in the area, which would lend credence to the spoilers.
Again, we hope everybody stays warm, and we’ll watch out for more details as the shoot continues.
