Did You Know?


Heavy rain made the production's field in Northern Ireland extremely muddy. Since horses don't like mud, 160 tons of gravel had to be brought in to give the horses some traction. See more »


At the end of the fight Jon, Tormund, and Wun Wun take off after Ramsay, only the three of them can be seen leaving the battlefield. When Wun Wun breaks through the gate many archers are right there with him, and Jon and Tormund arrive afterwards. See more »

Truly Epic
20 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

The Battle of Bastards is the Greatest Battle ever in the History of Television and Game of Thrones. The Episode was very Satisfying in terms of Action, Drama, Thrill, Battle and Kills.

In Mereen, The Mother of Dragons would be glad to have Tyrion and Drogon on her side from now on. A new bond between to become Queens was also interesting.

In North, The Battle, Oh My God!! It was something I have never ever witnessed. The Detail, the Armies, the Fight, everything was Incredible. The Game Ramsey played was so Ramsey. And the role Sansa took was so Stark. She really proved she is Ready to be the Lady of Winterfell.
