* FlipFlopOfGod: Ask three different creators (director, actor, writer) whether Jaime and Cersei having sex in the Great Sept in the fourth season episode "Breaker of Chains" was meant to be rape, consensual, or [[QuestionableConsent some murky and disturbing gray area in between]], and you'll get three different answers. Ask the same creator twice and you might get two.

** The director of "The Spoils of War" stated that the group of Lannister soldiers Arya met to facilitate a cameo from Ed Sheeran weren't at the battle against Drogon and were still alive. Shortly afterward, Sheeran himself said he wasn't coming back to the show and his character was probably killed in that battle.

** Conan Stevens only had one appearance as Gregor Clegane in the first season before leaving the series to appear as Bolg the Orc in ''Film/TheHobbit''.[[note]]On which he ironically was TheOtherDarrin 'ed again.[[/note]] He's been replaced by former basketball player Ian Whyte in the second season. Apart from their height, the two actors look nothing alike, not to mention that Stevens is quite husky, while Whyte is much thinner. Quite a few people seem to have missed the fact that he was supposed to be the Mountain. The Mountain got recast ''again'' in Season 4, now being played by Icelandic strongman Hafthór Júlíus Björnsson, who is generally considered a superior substitute for both previous actors, not to mention far and away more popular than them.

** According to Isaac Hempstead Wright, there was supposed to be scene in the Season 7 finale which was cut where Sansa would go to Bran and asked for his help. [[spoiler:This probably indicates that the feud between Sansa and Arya is real and not staged as what viewers believed but this scene might also make Bran a DeusExMachina who would eventually solve the feud in a snap]].
