HBO has released a new behind the scenes featurette titled “Game of Thrones Season 6: Inside the Episode #3″ with showrunner David Benioff and D.B. Weiss exploring and discussing the Tower of Joy scene in further detail. Check it out below.
“Honor was so important to Ned Stark that it was worth losing his life for, but he was completely ready to let go of that honor and excellence to do something he really felt was more important,” Weiss adds. “That could make a very, very strong defense for Ned doing what he did, but it certainly does puncture the mythology of Ned Stark that’s running through this world, especially after his death.”
Game of Thrones airs Sundays at 9 p.m. ET on HBO.
