The HBO show just finished filming a battle scene that took 55 nights to shoot. The news was revealed by assistant director Jonathan Quinlan in a now-deleted Instagram photo.

“This is for the Night Dragons,” reads a physical letter snapped by Quinlan and screenshot by another Instagram user. “For enduring 55 straight nights. For enduring the cold, the show, the rain, the mud, the sheep sh*t of Toome and the winds of Magheramorne.”
