Episode cast overview, first billed only:
Styr (as Yuri Kolokolnikov)


A terrified Gilly arrives at Castle Black with her baby and Sam hides them in the food larder before joining his colleagues to defend the castle. As the Wildlings prepare to attack Ygritte makes it clear she wants to be the one who kills Jon and the attack is indeed savage. Ser Allister goes down fighting before putting Jon in charge and Pyp and Grenn are among the King's Guard slain though Jon puts an axe in Styr's head and the boy who survived the village attack kills Ygritte as she is about to do the same to Jon. Tormund Giantsbane is captured and put in chains but Janos Slynt goes to pieces and hides in the larder with Gilly. The attack is repulsed but Jon is aware that there will be a second wave and sets out alone to prevent it by killing Mance Rayder. Written by don @ minifie-1

Did You Know?


This is the second episode directed by Neil Marshall, following Game of Thrones: Blackwater (2012). See more »


When Jon Snow comes down from the Wall to join the fighting below, Styr the Magnar of the Thenns is shown recognizing him and charges at him with his axe. This is wrong since Styr joins Tormund and his party in "Two Swords", which is after Jon Snow runs away from the wildlings in "The Rains of Castamere". So there is no way Styr could have recognized him in the battle. See more »


Alliser Thorne: Do you know what leadership means, Lord Snow? It means that the person in charge gets second guested by every clever little twat with a mouth. But if he starts second guessing himself, that's the end. For him, for the clever little twats, for everyone.

Beats Battle of Black Water
10 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Epic... simply epic.After watching this episode I had to express myself somehow and writing a review no matter how brief is the best way to do it. This episode is simply astonishing in the way the fight scenes are filmed. At times it's like third dimensional and you feel part of the carnage displayed on screen. The scale at which the episode is filmed is of epic proportions; Peter Jackson would have been proud. There are some flaws but those flaws cant be avoided when filming fight scenes involving many men. It is really a character driven episode because somehow you get the feeling that you wont be seeing some of these characters alive again. All in all a great episode and I place in the top three of my favorite game of thrones episodes.
