If you missed “Game of Thrones: A Day In the Life” then you’re in luck because we have the most important details for you on what was shown during this special. Read below for the full recap.

“Game of Thrones” Season 5 is indeed such a huge production: the show has filmed in five countries, had 151 sets, spent 240 days and hired 5000 extras. Yes, that’s a lot and these are worth it because of the positive feedback the show got since it aired on HBO.

The 30-minute “GOT” special revealed how the show is created. There were also some behind-the-scenes look at the upcoming fight scenes that features Jon Snow and another one that looks gruesome and brutal even more than then Red Wedding.

We were taken to the pit being built in Mereen. It is where Daenerys will marry Hizdahs zo Loraq. This is also where Jorah will fight and Dany will be caught up in the fight. It is most likely that this is where we will see the return of Drogon. In fact, there was a leaked video showing Drogon burning some Unsullied. It was also interesting that there was a quick shot during the show that looks like Jorah’s death.

It was also revealed that there’s a new location this upcoming season: Hardhome, a folk village in ruins found at the North of the Wall. Jon Snow and the Night’s Watch will go here and what we saw in the special suggests that there will be plenty of bloodshed once they reach this area. Oh, and we got a peek of the giants!

We also got glimpses of Cersei Lannister, particularly her walking through the slums to meet the High Sparrow and Daenarys talking to her council regarding Mereen.

“Game of Thrones” Season 5 premieres on Apr. 12, 2015 on HBO.
