But this isn't the only genre-bending gadget that was present on set. For this final season, actors didn't even get paper scripts they could carelessly leave lying around all over the place. Instead, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau revealed that they received special digital copies of their scenes which would self-destruct immediately after they had been filmed. It would finally explain why George R.R. Martin is so very behind on the books if it turns out he comes home every night to discover HBO has set fire to his manuscript again, just to be on the safe side.
It does seem that investing all that money in spy gadgets managed to pay off. Almost nothing has been leaked about this final season, which will only be six episodes long but promises to be more epic than anything we've seen so far. We just hope the Night King doesn't suddenly pull out a laser and shoot all of the dragons out of the sky.
