During the Battle of the Bastards, Jon Snow’s Valyrian steel sword was slightly less imposing than usual.
Game of Thrones producers were apparently too busy animating a giant to remember that when Jon Snow hoisted himself onto his horse, his floppy stunt sword would, well, flop.
Luckily,Imgur user voicesinmyhead noticed the goof while the rest of us were screaming at Rickon to run in a zig-zag.
And no, the Internet’s not pulling your leg. We and a few others checked the episode, and, yep Longclaw is more like a long noodle.
Still, rubber weapons are pretty par for the course when it comes to TV and movie magic. And we imagine it’s safer for Kit Harington to roll around set without having to worry about a real sword strapped to his hip.
Stay safe, Jon Snow.
BONUS: Goodnight, Westeros
