I didn't see that until you posted it. I mean, if it's true, it's really on him. :cheeseeni:

Yeah I can't argue with it if it's true. Especially because they're crossing international borders all the time doing filming. I don't know how reliable it is, but it is the first squeak of a reason I've heard so it's interesting.

Yeah, that article does look British tabloid-y. :laugh:

I watched some show on YouTube and the guy specifically cited that article as rumor. Dude in the video said he'd asked the author of the article where he got the information and the author wouldn't provide a source.

Disclaimer: No idea what's actually true or not. :laugh: Just adding what I saw.

Sounds like BS click bait to me.


but if true…… eh, good riddance.



Personally for me not really worth speculating on. We’ll either know one day or we won’t what the reasons are.

Ah. Well, that is less severe than what I had imagined, like he had done something illegal, but it is also such a stupid reason, if it is true. I have little sympathy for those who lose job/privileges because they don't want to do that small inconvenience.

(There are probably some who can't get the vaccine for various reasons. That is obviously a different story)

Hmm.... I think that would make sense though, given the few facts that we do have (e.g. separated from the show - no one at the show threw him under the bus, etc etc).

An interesting piece of information. Assuming that it is true, I now wonder how much of the material in Episodes 7 and 8 might have been rewritten to account for his absence, as well as what the original material was.

Iirc, in the Dusty Wheel episode 8 watch with Brandon Sanderson, he said that they had to scramble to rewrite the last two eps. So, I'm guessing quite a bit?

That doesn't track though with UK vaccines. Filming restarted in April 2021 and wasn't available to anyone under 30 under the end of May 2021. I guess he could have told Amazon he wasn't going to get vaccinated, but that's not the tone of this article.

If true, I agree with the decision but MAN DOES THAT SUCK. Mat was one of my top favorite in the books and Barney Harris did him so, so, so well. Better than I could have hoped. I initially was okay with his replacement, but that was before I had watched any episodes. Finn just looks too sweet, and less how they've scheduled Mat's route.

Dammit. I hate this.

Yeah, I have read those insights, really interesting. Sad that we won't see the new season for some time yet.

I partially agree with this tweet from the thread:
Still, given the momentum and the "Christmas that keeps on giving" reference the producer said when asked,I'm figuring they'll aim for late November, early December, to match s1, which gives about 2 months between LotR & WoT
LotR does start in early September, but eight episodes puts it ending October 7 if they do the same 3-episode starter release or the 21st if they do one a week the whole time. If they did the same release schedule as last year and started WoT on November 18th with a 3-episode start, it would end on Christmas Eve. And there would still be a 1-2 month gap. So that's my hope.

Been watching The Witcher recently

(like 1 more ep of season 2 left)

and I couldn’t help but notice there was none of that “fake sound stage feel” in the sets that bothered me for a lot of WoT

felt far more grounded.


Hopefully we can see more of that in WoT. The last two episodes felt like a much better step in that direction.
