As season 8 of Game of Thrones approaching, it's time to look back at the original pilot scenario for the show, and it's almost as bad as when Facebook reminds you how strange you were seven years ago. Brace yourself, a shit from a plot is coming. However, under various WTF details, it is probably the best that Westeros could have had in the past decade: Sansa Stark as their queen.
The Huffington Post found the secret original script in a library in Texas A & M, one of George R.R. Martin's favorite catering establishments, and perhaps the smartest thing written there, is how Sansa's mother, Catelyn Stark, really wanted her to be a queen. Come in line, but also great idea, Catelyn! According to this pilot, Catelyn was hungry for power and urged Ned Stark to agree to King's Landing to be the king's hand so that Sansa could marry Joffrey Baratheon with literal waste. The script is: Ned: "I will refuse him, I am a Norman, I hear here, not in the south in that rat nest they call a capital." Catelyn: "He would become our daughter Queen." Ned: "Is that what you want for her? A beautiful crown to wear?" Eh, no, Ned. She wants Sansa to become the best ruler of Westeros, because she gets Sansa's potential to become a boss queen as opposed to a certain person. This is a big difference with what was actually broadcast on HBO, which gives Catelyn a less plotting nature. Although Sansa still went to King & # 39; s Landing with Ned in the real pilot, perhaps if Ned was at the same strategic level as Catelyn, Sansa would have really married Joffrey and would not have cut off his head. Just some food for thought. This show would have been very different if Ned had listened. Apart from Sansa, the script also changes the melody of Khal Drogo and Daenerys Targaryen's relationship to get more consensus, but Jamie and Cersei Lannister make that less. If you remember that Cersei in the HBO pilot only objects to sex with Jamie when Bran Stark sees them. In the original pilot, Jamie and Cersei's brother-sister relationship has not yet been established. She objects to the fact that he has had sex with him the whole time, making things confusing and worse, if that is even possible.
There was also a scene in which Jon Snow got drunk. Oh what could have been. Ignoring the gross misstep of not making Sansa queen, the actual HBO pilot seems much better.
