Game of Thrones pointed out a costume blunder from the show's very first episode.
As HBO’s Game of Thrones prepares for its final season, some observant fans have noticed a big mistake in the show’s first ever episode. Back when “winter is coming” aired in 2011, few had the idea of how an epic the series was going to be, but even so, some of its episodes are far from perfect (if not all).
The first installment of the series showed us the frozen zombies known as Wights Walkers, Daenerys being gifted to the Dothraki, Bran’s fall from the Winterfell tower, and the shocking revelation that Jaime and Cersei are more than just brother and sister.
GoT has had a long way since then, from Lannisters and Baratheons, Starks and slaughters to Dragons and Direwolves.

Game of Thrones has seen a huge gap in its ratings and standards from its launch date. Even, Alan Taylor, one of the directors of the show, admits Sean Bean’s dramatic Season 1 exit was filmed with a meager production cost.

When Vanity Fair approached Taylor on the similar matter, the director explained: “It’s funny seeing how small and rinky-dink the scene is because Game of Thrones has gone on to become very well-funded by HBO. But at this stage in season one, no one had seen the show yet, we didn’t know if it had an audience yet and we didn’t have a dime.”
