Deleted Game Of Thrones Scenes That Would Have Changed Everything

  • Published: 16 May 2019
  • Game of Thrones has always been a pretty sprawling TV show, and plenty of material has ended up on the cutting room floor. But though these scenes were deleted, they're still fascinating to explore - especially since these moments could have subtly changed the course of the story, or at least our perception of events. Let's explore some of the more substantial moments that never made the final cut.

    The execution of Littlefinger was one of the most shocking moments in the season 7 finale, but how did Sansa and Arya Stark come to learn about his whole lifetime of crimes?

    In an interview with Variety, actor Isaac Hempstead Wright, who portrays Bran Stark, revealed that he shot a deleted sequence with Sophie Turner, who portrays Sansa. In the scene, Sansa reportedly consulted with Bran just ahead of Littlefinger's trial.

    As you may recall, Sansa was convinced her sister Arya was out to assassinate her in order to become the Lady of Winterfell. Arya suspected the same of Sansa, and it was all thanks to that master manipulator, Littlefinger.

    Viewers were sweating buckets watching the season 7 finale, since it looked like one of the Stark sisters might kill the other. But then, Sansa and Arya flipped the script, sentencing Littlefinger to death, revealing their feud to be an elaborate ruse.

    "Thank you for all your many lessons, Lord Baelish. I will never forget them."

    It was a big twist, but it seemed to leave a bit of a plot hole behind, too. How were the Stark children suddenly so certain of Littlefinger’s history of manipulation and betrayal?

    According to Hempstead Wright, a deleted scene from the episode would have cleared up any ambiguity. It revealed exactly how the Stark sisters learned of Littlefinger's schemes. And it would've let audiences see how Sansa and Arya arrived at the decision to execute him.

    In the deleted scene, Bran uses his newfound abilities as the Three-Eyed Raven to peer into Littlefinger's past, unearthing every underhanded thing he'd ever done in his quest for power.

    Hempstead Wright told Variety:

    "The story was that it suddenly occurred to Sansa that she had a huge CCTV department at her discretion and it might be a good idea to check with [Bran] first before she guts her own sister."

    Though audiences can kind of still fill in the blanks without the scene, its inclusion would have threaded the plot together with a little bit more clarity. It also would have shed more light on Bran's immense powers, giving us a much stronger impression of how extraordinary his gifts really are.

    Bran's ability to access the history of man and the secrets of Westeros is an astonishing skill and a potentially powerful weapon. As was made clear in Season 8, Bran's knowledge that Jon is the rightful heir to the Seven Kingdoms sparked an unfortunate chain of events, one that's played an important part in Daenerys Targaryen's descent into madness. Keep watching the video to see those deleted Game of Thrones scenes that would have changed everything!

        I thought season 7 Sansa and Arya were playing a game to trick littlefinger in to thinking they were against each other. Turns out they really were and if not for Bran, one of them would had taken the other out. Lame

          Explanation, when Arya found Nymeria and she didn’t want to go North with Arya but she would leave and be free Arya could understand it and said in the series “it’s not you”. At the last episode of season 8 Arya also said she wouldn’t go back North “it isn’t me” she was going west of Westeros to be free. Jon died and got brought back like a Ghost and had the fur of ice and the eyes of fire. Robb of course his dire wolf got killed could be insinuating his fate. Lady making Sansa a lady, what she was always good at.

                    I think the main thing that I find unsatisfying is that they didn't give much explanation about Bran/Three Eyed Raven, or give him much role to play, even though he had been chosen to be an omniscient god.

                        Jon didnt ditched Ghost. He came back after killing Dany and they lived happily ever after in the far north together with the wildlings. You know nothing Looper.

                          lol, Jon didn't ditch Ghost. He had no intention of staying in King's Landing after the siege. He was weirded out by the revelation of incest, and knew his presence would be a problem for Dany. When the siege was over, removing himself from the Seven Kingdoms would be the best possible thing for everyone. He always intended to return to shortly. He just wasn't about to take Ghost to the same place where Lady died.

                            If Sansa had to be shown asking Bran to check the security footage, then no one would ever believe she was mastering the game on her own. It made way more sense to cut it and show her being the smart one, instead of undercutting all of that and her (still) having to be led around by the hand.

                                        Religion and Cynicism aren't really opposing. At least not inherently... Aspects of them are brought up in contrast as opposites in Game of Thrones, yes. But it's more a dispute between internal and external determinism (selfishness or obedience - depending on what a character's history is and what they've experienced).

                                          littlefinger was never executed. Watch the scene again. Did anyone sentenced him to death. He was accused for some charges but neither arya nor sansa or bran sentencend him to death like it should be. actually in the scene he was just killed by arya. So she murdered him.

                                                  Little finger isn't dead though. He gave dorn coin to a faceless women before his trial. Meaning the faceless person died in his place

                                                    Regarding the first one with Littlefinger. The two idiots preferred surprising the audience with the "twist" at Arya's trial over a logical story. Something they apparently did in most writing decisions they had since then (and before).

They had all the narrative freedom to use him for story telling purposes and they nearly refused to. He is a suer villain if you think about it. He let Theon die for no reason. (Could have atleast let him time it right to where Arya stabs him) He told Jon his heritage just to cockblock him, knowing a million people would die, all to take power which he did nothing to deserve. Cheers.

Could’ve waited to release this season and written another. It didn’t have to end here. They want to talk about budget as an issue, then that’s misappropriated funds considering the number of fans they have. I waited years for just a bit of a happy ending and yea nah it was fucked.

He has since vowed to ruled the seven kingdom with whatever it takes. He risked the life of hodor just so he can possess the power of sight as the 3 eyed raven. He then manipulate everyone, stand at the sideline, forced ppl to protect him, acted creepily and handicap so that everyone will kill each other and when the dust settles..will then elect him as king of the realm..this boy vindictive behaviour fueled his quest to rule them all. The villain and the master strategist of the show
