Jaime Lannister's 're-grown' hand enrages 'GoT' ardent fans


14 May 2019

'GoT' commits another "blunder" with Jaime Lannister's hand. Fans hyperventilate

Game of Thrones fans all over the world had severely criticized the show a few days back when a coffee cup featured in an episode.

It was a mistake that (as per several fans) took away the show's serious tone.

The series, it seems has made another editing gaffe in the 5th episode by 'growing back' Jaime Lannister's long severed hand!

Here's more

The Image

Jaime and Cersei's episode 5 image was widely circulated

Jaime and Cersei's episode 5 image was widely circulated

The image, believed to be a still from the episode, featured the last embrace of Jaime and Cersei before they die together beneath the Red Keep.

Both of Jaime's hands were shown intact in the image when one of them should've been made of metal.

People on Twitter did not take kindly to the 'colossal' blunder with many threatening to boycott the season finale!

First the coffee cup and now this!

Fan reactions on social media ranged from funny to furious

Jaime's hand was severed in season 3. Watching it grow back in season 8 might have been traumatic for fans who were already recovering from GoT's earlier #CoffeeGate.

While casual fans didn't take the issue seriously and let it go after making a joke or two on Twitter, hardcore fans were furious and said things like "YOU HAD 1 JOB!" and "I'm done!"

Fake News

The news, however, wasn't entirely true

The news, however, wasn't entirely true

The image wasn't photoshopped/fake but it also wasn't a still from the episode.

If you go and rewatch, there is no such scene where Jaime's real hand can be seen.

Explanation: With every new episode, HBO releases some related photographs on its website.

While this particular photo has now been deleted, it has been confirmed that this was taken on set, before any CGI.

Shoddy Writing

The real concern in this season isn't editing but writing

While mistakes like the appearance of a coffee cup or a hand can happen in a show as grand as GoT, they are extremely rare and shouldn't be taken this seriously.

What should be taken seriously is the deteriorating writing and character development in this season.

The current season is rated worst on Rotten Tomatoes and its episode 4 is the series' worst-rated episode!
