Filmed over the course of the entire final year, the documentary grounded itself by focusing on a few select members of the massive team that brings the show together. It also shows that there are a a ton of people-on-screen, but there are even more people behind the scenes in massive warehouses building prosthetics, costumes, putting on makeup, working out fight choreography, stunt people … and those are just the people that deal with the actors.
The documentary also shows us Night King actor Vladimir Furdik, hair supervisor Candice Banks who’s been turning Clarke into Daenerys Targaryen for years now, and even the woman who maintains the food truck that keeps the cast and crew well fed through the long days and cold nights of shooting this season.They even have a snow guy, Del Reid. It’s absolutely crazy that this was even a job, and yet Reid absolutely owns it.
Here is how some fans on Twitter reacted to the documentary:
Love watching director David Nutter on #TheLastWatch special. He had a wicked pilot directing streak years back. Every pilot he did went to series 15 times in a row. Crazy. Besides #GOT, he’s directed X-Files, Sopranos, Entourage, West Wing, I mean. A legend. Congrats to him. 🙌🏾 pic.twitter.com/rYI3Uk3Tjy

Mad respect to all the cast and crew that made Game of Thrones something incredible. The Last Watch documentary shows the amount of effort that went into it – mighty impressive stuff. BRAVO! And thank you. #GameOfThrones #TheLastWatch

I love how Conleth Hill tossed his script after his last line so he didn't even have to read along with Varys' death scene. And totally teared up at Lena Headey and Gwendoline Christie comforting him. #TheLastWatch pic.twitter.com/JDCVMCP39U

#TheLastWatch was much more emotional and satisfying than the actual finale.

He might have only been an "Extra", but #AndyMcClay stole the spotlight in #TheLastWatch. Give that man an opportunity in the #GameofThrones Prequel being produced! Also, that was a fantastic documentary! Loved it very much!
