Game Of Thrones fans said goodbye to the seventh season of the HBO series at the of August.

And while devotees have 18 months to speculate about plot lines for the final season, Isaac - who portrays Bran Star - spoke to The Telegraph of missing scenes that could have helped fans piece together the season finale.

Viewers questioned how Sansa and Arya Stark (actresses Sophie Turner and Maisie Williams, respectively) buried the hatchet to conspire with their brother Bran to kill treasonous Littlefinger.

'We actually did a scene that clearly got cut, a short scene with Sansa where she knocks on Bran's door and says, "I need your help," or something along those lines,' Wright said of his character.

Littlefinger, portrayed by Aidan Gillen, had been conspiring in the North for some time to turn the Stark sisters against each other.

While Littlefinger stood in Winterfell’s great hall waiting to witness Arya Stark's execution at the hands of her very own sister, Sansa turned the tables on Littlefinger and asked how he plead to a host of crimes.

The season seven finale also featured a steamy sex scene between Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen, who have yet to realize they are related.

'I don’t know that Bran has quite got the charisma anymore,' Wright said when asked if his character would be the one to break the news to his brother Snow.

'I think that would be a bit of a disappointing reveal for Bran to go, "Hi, Jon. You’re the heir to the Iron Throne and I’m back in Winterfell and I know everything."'

In the hotly-anticipated season seven finale, the Night King, played by Vladimir Furdik, finally made his move to wipe out the people of Westeros by bringing down The Wall.
