If you’ve read Divergent, you probably noticed that one particularly unforgettable scene never made it into the movie – the eye stabbing. In the book, during Dauntless initiation, the #1 ranking transfer initiate, Edward (Ben Lamb), is stabbed in the eye in the middle of the night. It’s a pretty brutal moment in the book, so it is reasonable that they opted to cut it from a PG-13-rated film, but they actually did shoot it and it’ll be on the Divergent DVD and Blu-ray special features menu.
You can’t get a copy until August 5th, but Summit opted to unveil the long lost stabbing scene a little early. Hit the jump to check out the Divergent deleted scene and also to find out what Lamb himself had to say about shooting it during our set visit. Divergent also stars Shailene Woodley, Theo James, Jai Courtney, Zoe Kravitz, Miles Teller, Ansel Elgort and Kate Winslet.
