What was Kit Harington's reaction to finale table read?

Well, if you thought you were surprised by that ending, imagine what it was like to be actors Kit Harington and Emilia Clarke, who play Jon and Daenerys.

Beyond giving the foot soldiers in the battle to produce "Game of Thrones" their moments in the spotlight, "The Last Watch" provided a clear sense of the toil that goes into such an enterprise.

Game of Thrones: The Last Watch, is a two-hour behind-the-scenes documentary about the making of the show's final season.

When we copped our first look at the documentary, directed by acclaimed filmmaker Jeanie Finlay, we could only guess what made Kit Harington so upset during the crew's final table read.

Kit Harington's reaction to finding out Jon Snow would kill Daenerys is actually better than the finale of "Game of Thrones". A literally gobsmacked Harington looks directly across the table at Clarke, who nods at him knowingly and attempts to make him laugh by pulling a amusing face that can only be interpreted as "sorry you didn't find out sooner!"

Harington then put his hands on his head and as Cogman said Snow "lodged" the dagger in in Dany's heart, the actor reeled back in his chair and appeared to get emotional.

"He was crying", Clarke says.

Harington, staring at the script, looked shocked as he realized what was about to happen in the scene.

The official description for the episode on HBO reads: "Game of Thrones: The Last Watch delves deep into the mud and blood to reveal the tears and triumphs involved in the challenge of bringing the fantasy world of Westeros to life in the very real studios, fields and car-parks of Northern Ireland. I love you for it. Thank you so much." .
