Game of Thrones

Season 2 – Episode 10 “Valar Morghulis”

When adapting a book into the visual medium, there are items that need to be cut. It’s as simple as that. Usually the first thing to go is internalized dialogue (e.g. The Hunger Games) and Game of Thrones is no stranger to that. In the first season of Game of Thrones, information which many fans consider to be the most important subtext in the books is cut in the scenes of Ned Stark’s imprisonment. This internal dialogue and memory could have been shown in flashback and I wonder how later events of the series will progress without this information (or how they will communicate it in the future). What’s more interesting (and increasingly relevant as we approach the premiere of Season 3) is what happened in Season 2 Episode 10, “Valar Morghulis,” as Daenerys Targaryen entered the House of the Undying in »
