This week’s Game of Thrones was the tiniest bit disappointing. Daenerys is still stuck with the Dothraki, Jon Snow’s return to life was notably understated… and we didn’t find out the truth about the Tower of the Joy and the R + L = J situation.
BUT a new fan theory raised it’s head. One involving… a fart.
Apologies for lowering the tone, but Twitter is convinced that Game of Thrones made a fart joke during last night’s episode. When Cersei, Jamie and the zombie Mountain attempted to take over the Small Council meeting, there was a noise. A kind of squeak.
It could have been a chair being pushed back, a door swinging on its hinges… or it could have been, yep, a fart.
Did…did someone just fart in Game of Thrones?

HAHAHAHA… I'm only now seeing last night's Game of Thrones. Was that a full-on terror fart at 35:26?? (I've watched it 5 times)

Is it just me or is Game of Thrones getting funnier? Not in a "this is dumb" way, but in a "they just put a fart joke in this episode" way.

No more fart jokes in Game Of Thrones, please.

Did they just edit a fart noise into this episode of Game of Thrones? Was that really a choice that was made?
