‘Game of Thrones’ Star Films the Lady Stoneheart Scene That Never Was
Last week saw one of Game of Thrones’ very own tipping his lemon cloak toward the ocean of Lady Stoneheart theories swirling around Season 6, even as this past Sunday’s “No One” seemingly put the character’s appearance to rest once and for all. Now, Jóhannes Haukur shows us what might have been, filming the Lady Stoneheart introduction scene straight from George R.R. Martin’s books.
Where previously Haukur had played coy with his role as “Lem Lemoncloak” precipitating the introducing of Lady Stoneheart, a resurrected and vengeful Catelyn Stark taking vengeance on her enemies, Sunday’s “No One” seemed once and for all to shut down suggestions the character might appear. Instead, Sandor Clegane’s return led to the re-introduction of Thoros of Myr and Beric Dondarrion still leading the Brotherhood Without Banners, the latter of whom, in the books, gave up his remaining lifeforce to resurrect Catelyn.
Still, with his time on the show now at an end after a bitter hanging, Haukur took to Twitter to preview what Stoneheart’s introduction might have looked like, reciting some of his literary counterpart’s lines:
And the Storm of Swords passage itself, as delivered to one of the Freys (via UPROXX):
“She don’t speak,” said the big man in the yellow cloak. “You bloody bastards cut her throat too deep for that. But she remembers.” He turned to the dead woman and said, “What do you say, m’lady? Was he part of it?”
Lady Catelyn’s eyes never left him. She nodded.
Haukur sharing the bit over social media seemingly puts yet another nail in Lady Stoneheart’s coffin (as if there weren’t enough already), given that HBO would likely react to the actor sharing sensitive material of the final episodes. After all, HBO intentionally left episode synopses for “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” blank, suggesting an otherwise-tight seal.
In the meantime, you can watch the actor’s video for a taste of what might of been, and prepare for the final two Game of Thrones Season 6 outings.
