Before filming the scene, episode director David Nutter talked to Turner about the heartbreaking moment between her and Alfie Allen’s character Theon and described how she’d look at his closed eyes as she put the pin in and think, “You’re a Stark now.”

“OK, cool, so just give me a couple minutes to get into it,” Turner says in the documentary.

Turner definitely got into the moment and continued to cry between takes as her costume was readjusted.

Both the documentary and the full final season are available now on HBO.
