And now the instant before Ice comes down, beheading Gared (Dermot Keaney). This role was recast for scheduling reasons, and so we believe this shot was taken much more recently. Compare the hue of the grass in the background between this final preview capture and the first one: it’s a bit greener. While this could be no more than a mismatch in color processing, we think it indicates the August 2010 shoot date of this particular scene as compared to the November 2009 shoot date for the original pilot. In all likelihood, post-processing will sync the colors together by the time this goes to air.
