George R.R. Martin Reveals His Least Favorite HBO 'Game of Thrones' Scene & Why

George R.R. Martin, the author of the Game of Thrones books, is revealing his least favorite scene from the HBO series…and it’s probably not one that fans would choose.

″Where we really fell down in terms of budget was my least favorite scene in the entire show, in all eight seasons: King Robert goes hunting,″ he told EW, noting the scene from the first season.

″Four guys walking on foot through the woods carrying spears and Robert is giving Renly s—. In the books, Robert goes off hunting, we get word he was gored by a boar, and they bring him back and he dies. So I never did [a hunting scene]. But I knew what a royal hunting party was like. There would have been a hundred guys. There would have been pavilions. There would have been huntsmen. There would have been dogs. There would have been horns blowing — that’s how a king goes hunting! He wouldn’t have just been walking through the woods with three of his friends holding spears hoping to meet a boar. But at that point, we couldn’t afford horses or dogs or pavilions.”

You can check out the scene on YouTube.

If you missed it, one Game of Thrones star actually wants to remake the final season.
