    ‘House Of The Dragon’: How Did The Show Fix George R. R. Martin’s Least Favorite ‘Game Of Thrones’ Scene?

    House of the Dragon‘ is now one of the most profitable shows for HBO. The fantasy drama, which is set 200 years before ‘Game of Thrones‘, met with mostly positive critical response. The first episode drew around 20 million viewership in total and the show has been renewed for a second season.

    George R. R. Martin was more or less happy with its parent show. But there were two scenes that really made him unhappy; they were shot differently due to budget constraints. Now ‘House of the Dragon‘, which is based on Martin’s 2018 book ‘Fire & Blood‘, has fixed those two scenes.

    The death of Ned Stark in ‘Game of Thrones‘ was one of Martin’s favorite scenes. But two seasons from its first season were not satisfying to the writer.

    King Robert embarked on a hunt into the woods along with a few others when he was mauled by a boar. This leads to his eventual death. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Martin said: “Where we really fell down in terms of budget was my least favorite scene in the entire show, in all eight seasons: King Robert goes hunting.”

    In one of his books, Martin stated, “[King Robert] wouldn’t have just been walking through the woods with three of his friends holding spears hoping to meet a boar.” In the third episode of ‘House of the Dragon‘, this has been fixed when it chronicles King Viserys’ hunting party.

    The jousting tournament was another scene in ‘GOT’ that disappointed Martin which has been sort of fixed in the prequel show.  In the debut episode, we see an extended sequence of jousting which Martin really liked.
