Game of Thrones

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When the episode starts Arya is walking towards where Daenerys is and has her face covered in mud and soot, plus a long streak of dark dry blood running through the right side of her face. The next time we see her her face is cleaner and the blood is less noticeable. In further shots the amount of blood increases or decreases randomly. There doesn't seem to be much water and soap around the place.

Suggested correction: That is correct, however there is actually a reason for this, it was just never adapted from the books. Stains burned the woods during battle of the black water as an offering to the lord of light.

That doesn't remove the hills though.

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: During the meeting at the Dragonpit, Sansa is wearing her long silver chain and circle neckwear, with the long chain changing the way it is placed through the circle. First the chain is put through the circle in a way that's over and under, but in some shots the chain is put through the circle the opposite way, under and over. (00:53:10)

The Pointy End - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Ser Barriston throws his armor and sword on the floor after being demoted, the sword stops by his armor. However when Sansa kneels down, the sword is now a good distance from the armor. (00:52:40)

The Spoils of War - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In order to save him from Drogon's fire at the very end of the episode Jaime is thrust by Bronn into water about 40 feet deep. This shouldn't have been possible especially after Jamie is shown galloping on his horse along the watery beach side just moments before.

Suggested correction: As shown in the following episode, the undercurrents had carried them some distance down-river.

Unacceptable. An undercurrent may explain how they eventually got to the other side of the lake but not why the water on the shore became so deep so quickly.

Show generally

Continuity mistake: The difference between the heights of Ser Jaime and Lady Brianne continually differs. Sometimes Brianne is taller than Jaime by several inches, and at other times they appear to be nearly the same height when standing side-by-side, even though they're always wearing the same clothes and boots.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms - S8-E2

Continuity mistake: During the battle strategy meeting around the table, Sansa wears the long silver chain and circle neckwear, and the long chain changes the way it is placed through the circle. Sansa's chain is put through the circle in a way that's over and under in most shots, but when Jon explains that if the dragons are in the field they won't be able to protect Bran, the long chain is put through the circle the opposite way, under and over.

You Win or You Die - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When Jon and the others emerge onto the other side of the wall, there are 4 people with torches. Pay attention to the one at the back on the screen left. He has his torch in his left hand in this shot, but as the shot changes to the front he now has his torch in his right hand. (00:44:30)

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Grey Worm leads Tyrion to the Dragonpit, as they pass the column of Unsullied their long individual shadows are directly to their sides, but in the next shot the Unsullied are seen in the background and the shadows are entirely different. (00:46:00)

The Long Night - S8-E3

Continuity mistake: When Arya stabs the Night King it's high on his chest, piercing his leather armor. In the next wide shot, the dagger is lower and not in the armor.

The Iron Throne - S8-E6

Continuity mistake: When Daenerys is dead she has blood underneath her back and hair, and as the camera is above her, her right arm is curved or bent a little. When Drogon picks her up her arm is now straight and despite the blood on the ground she seems to be completely clean. No blood on her back, hair or scarf. Then as Drogon flies away, how on earth did he pick her up with his left hind leg? Did he twist his leg 180° to pick her up with his front claw?

Home - S6-E2

Continuity mistake: While Jaime and the High Sparrow are standing beside Myrcella's body in the Sept, in the overhead shot of Myrcella her right hand is placed over her left hand, but in other shots it's the opposite way. (00:18:30)

The Pointy End - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: Arya and Syrio are practising at the start, we see them stop with their swords touching and crossed. Camera changes and Syrio's sword is much lower and no longer touching Arya's. (00:02:10)

A Golden Crown - S1-E6

Trivia: The horse heart that Daenerys eats was actually made of gelatin, and genuinely tasted dreadful - her physical revulsion at eating it is real. It had dyed pasta to simulate veins, and was injected with fake sugary blood, which attracted flies. The blood was so sticky and ended up covering Emilia Clarke to such an extent that after filming it glued her to the toilet seat.

More trivia for Game of Thrones

Season 1 generally

Question: After watching the show and reading the first book, I can't figure out why people hate Jaime for killing King Aerys. Aerys is referred to as the "Mad King" and more than one person talks about his sick deeds. Even Ned doesn't seem to approve of Jaime's actions, yet Aerys killed his father and brother. Even if Jaime did have a duty to guard the king, didn't he actually do everyone a favor by killing Aerys?

Answer: Basically it's because he broke his vow. A member of the Kingsguard is sworn to protect the king at all costs. Jaime elaborates more on the deed to both Catelyn Stark and Brienne of Tarth, telling Catelyn that no matter what course of action he took, he would be breaking one vow or another (i.e. if he obeyed the king, he would conversely be disobeying his own father), and telling Brienne that the Mad King was planning on burning all of King's Landing, but he did not bother to tell Ned Stark that. Ned Stark felt that killing Aerys was dishonorable and excessive. Robert Baratheon still could have usurped the throne without Aerys being killed.
