^Didn't they film Ned's dad and brother being roasted in the Throne Room but have never shown it?
Yeah I had heard something about that in season 2. No idea if it was actually filmed though. Get the feeling they are gonna show us something from that time in more detail later which is why we don't see anything yet.
They filmed it. A clip from the scene is in the first big trailer for the show.

They cut it and other planned flashbacks in order to keep the focus on the currently unfolding events. It seemed like the dungeon would have been a good place for Ned to be having fever dreams of these things, as well as giving a few hints to Lyanna's story. . . but apparently they decided otherwise. Similarly they took out a majority of the information gleaned from Dany's adventure in the house of the undying.
