pouring money into the Spanish economy hand over fist during the filming of Season 6, it’s not that surprising that the US ambassador to Spain,
Jaime Costos, would see fit to pop by and visit with the American producers that have done so much to not only put the local population to work, but promote tourism in the country for years to come. Costos has other ties as well to the production, having worked as an executive for HBO prior to his appointment in 2013.
So what was the spoiler he tweeted? Well, it’s not a huge one—no pictures posing with Kit Harington, or even with Emilia Clarke. But last night he stopped by the set to look in on the overnight filming in progress, and got a photo with the men in charge of the scene.

So! Now we know that this current scene being filming in the El Chorrillo Sierra Alhamilla area is being directed by Dan Sackheim. We know from the line up released back over the summer that he is in charge of episodes 3 and 4 this season. So with that tidbit of knowledge, we can presume that this scene in the desert where Dany is taken to the Dothraki village (Vaes Dothrak?) is happening early on, in either the third or fourth episodes. It’s not a huge spoiler, but it does give us a sense of context for what we’re seeing.
has a video that is from last night’s shooting that proves how hard it is to get any sort of footage from the site—especially in the dark.
Oh well. Hopefully pictures (slightly clearer ones) will follow soon.
Interesting things are coming out of Almería, and the first shooting set in El Chorrillo Sierra...
It felt like it would go on forever. But all good scenes much come to an end, so that...

I’m pretty sure the 1898 Spanish-American War was over spoilers.
I’m just very happy that Dany Finally has a storyline again. Her plot in seasons 4 and 5 really have been one of the more boring storylines without a doubt. Season 6 I think her storyline will finally be exciting again.
While it’s true that ilming GOT in Spain will definitely boost tourism in specific areas, the country is already ranked (and has been for years) among the top 3 tourist destinatinations in the world. Still, it’s great to see it playing a part in the GOT’s mythos :)
Season 6: Dany is Khaleesi again Season 7: Dany goes back to Qarth to get more prophecies from Quaithe and HotUn
Season 8: Dany goes back to Astapor to get more Unsullied
Epilogue: What, the White Walkers came and Hodor defeated them and Dany is still in Essos?
on And the as-yet unseen location on Westeros or Essos fans most want to see is…
