I think you have that backwards. She was leaving Dorne back to King's Landing shortly before dying from the kiss.

Ok I can maybe excuse the constant references to King's landing's gardens as highgarten, but this scene obviously took place right after Jon and DAny arrived in Winterfell. It's supposed to be in the North, not on Dragonstone. Yall really out here believing every Tyrell scene is set in highgarten and every targaryen scene is set in dragonbstone huh

If they created the sept using CGI, where did they film the interior? It was an amazing structure on the inside.

Funny. You can see the mortar lines of the street pavers in the top picture, through the dirt.

I love that these are all real places that pretty much look the same, only a little bit of CGI!
