Game of Thrones season 3

Season 3 brought us lots of plot twists, including the chopping off of Jaime Lannister’s sword hand! How did they achieve the affect of a handless Jaime? It was more complicated than it looked:

One of the most iconic moments from season 3, hands down, was Daenerys Targaryen laying waste to Astapor. Emilia Clarke looks like she’s in the zone as the crew pipes in smoke and steam:

The scene where Jon and the wildlings climb the Wall was visually spectacular, and as you can see, the actors were actually climbing a wall, just a much smaller one than we saw onscreen:

In season 3, Samwell Tarly (John Bradley) became the first man in living memory to kill a White Walker, possibly moments before this shot was taken:
