Ramsay Bolton’s death was intensely violent and satisfying by anyone’s standards, but apparently it was set to be much gorier.

In what seems to be some kind of tradition now (they did it with Hodor as well), the show’s creators are saying that they filmed stuff that was way more graphic than what we saw.
They shot multiple takes, which were pieced together to reveal flesh ripping from between Bolton’s skin and gums, but it was too brutal even for ‘Thrones’ standards.
The show’s visual effects supervisor Mat Krentz told Variety:
They did a pass of the dog on green screen, then Ramsay on green screen, and then we also had a background plate, which we put together.
I’m getting fed up with Game of Thrones doing this after every brutal death that happens on the show. They always go back and say “oh you thought that was bad? Well if only you knew how much worse it could have been!”. Teasing us about something we’ll never get to see. Just fucking show us next time!
Although to be fair, they did get a TONNE of grief over that Sansa Stark scene.
