Here’s How HBO Filmed The Incredible Loot Train Scene on ‘Game of Thrones’

Warning: Spoilers Ahead

If you sat down for the fourth episode of Game of Thrones this week, you’re no doubt still reeling from the way it ended. Not only does the fate of Jaime Lannister well and truly hang in the balance but Daenerys Targerean looks poised to possibly lose it, just like her father did, and set everyone on fire.

But perhaps the most iconic part of the whole episode — minus the Stark kids’ reunion — was the entire battle at the end of the episode. It was over 10 minutes of breathtaking action and, just like the monumental effect it had on the Game of Thrones audience, it also took a monumental amount of effort to put together.

The show has released a behind-the-scenes look at creating what they dubbed the “the loot train attack” and it sounds absolutely exhausting.
