Game of Thrones Season 8, Episode 4, “The Last of the Starks”

  1. The coffee cup seen during the victory feast was from Khaleesi Khafee, Emilia Clarke’s coffee startup. She placed it on the table when no one was looking for free advertising. She was irate when Starbucks got all the press.
  2. The script originally called for Missandei’s last words to be “Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall.” Showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss realized that that would have been an anachronism because the show takes place in the 13th century and rewrote the line.
  3. During filming, actor Jerome Flynn, who portrays Bronn, accidentally shot Nikolaj Coster-Waldau who portrays Jaime Lannister, with a crossbow, seriously injuring him. Coster-Waldau had to be replaced by his twin brother, Gargamel Coster-Waldau, for his remaining scenes in the episode.
  4. Kristofer Hivju, who plays Tormund Giantsbane, is allergic to wine so his horn-cup was filled with peppermint schnapps during the victory feast scene.
  5. As originally scripted, Podrick Payne was not supposed to hook up with two women at the victory feast, but actor Daniel Portman was filmed leaving the set with two extras, and director David Nutter decided to keep it in.
