HBO has released a deleted scene from the upcoming Game of Thrones: Season 3 Blu-ray/DVD. In the scene, Tywin Lannister (Charles Dance) is in the middle of fishing when he’s confronted by Grand Maester Pycelle (Julian Glover) begging to get his seat back on the high council. We were shown this scene at Comic-Con, and I loved it. I can kind of understand why it was cut since every episode packs in so much material, and this scene doesn’t drive the plot forward. However, it completely changes our perception of Pycelle through a surprising and dramatic reveal. That’s not to mention the terrific performances from Dance and Glover. While it may not have been deemed essential by the showrunners, I’m glad that fans will still get a chance to see it.
Hit the jump to watch the deleted scene. Game of Thrones: Season 3 will hit Blu-ray and DVD on February 18, 2014.
