‘Game Of Thrones' Spoilers: Stannis's Death Was Originally Emotional; Why Was It Changed?
“Game of Thrones” Season 7 won’t be out until July this year but fans are still getting plenty of updates. The most recent reveal about the popular television series is a certain character’s death that has been downplayed. It seems like Stannis Baratheon was intended to have an emotional and dramatic death.
The One True King’s Dramatic Death
Just recently, it was revealed that Stannis Baratheon’s death was originally made out to be an emotional scene that involved more lines with Brienne. During Stannis’s last few minutes in the world, he was full of remorse for his recent actions that included the death of his daughter. Aside from that, he and Brienne somehow had a lengthy line talking about the afterlife. The deleted parts were discovered when the producers of “Game of Thrones” decided to submit the episode titled “Mother’s Mercy” for an Emmy Awards nomination.
Stannis’s death was one of the climatic events in “Game of Thrones” Season 5 Episode 10. In the original script, Stannis asked Brienne whether she believed in the afterlife or not. And because she believed it in and he did not, he asked Brienne to tell Renly and his daughter, Shireen that he was terribly sorry. Stannis sacrificed his young daughter’s life after Melisandre convinced him that it was all for the Lord of Light.
Reasons Why The Scene Was Changed
Fans believe that the producers omitted the part about afterlife and remorse in Stannis’s death scene because it might ruin his character that the show had built up especially because he suddenly opened to Brienne, who was a stranger to him. Stannis wasn’t the type to get emotional and regret his decisions. Even if he knew he was probably doing something wrong, he would stand his ground on his actions because he was a leader.
Also, the producers of the said HBO television series revealed that the last two episodes of “Game of Thrones” Season 5 were additional scenes from the sixth unpublished book, “The Winds of Winter”. Shireen’s death was of those scenes not yet revealed in the books. They went on ahead to add it and condense it to the series, signaling that the series as based on George R.R. Martin’s stories, was heading for a darker development.
