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 »


When Jon and Ramsay first meet to discuss when to do battle, Sansa leaves before Ramsay says he hasn't fed his hounds in seven days. At the end of the episode, Sansa says to Ramsay referring to his hounds, "You haven't fed them in seven days, you said it yourself." Sansa was never there to know that information, even though it was crucial in the manner of his death. See more »

Sansa Stark: You haven't fed them in seven days. You said it yourself.
Ramsay Bolton: They're loyal beasts.
Sansa Stark: They were. Now they're starving.

Truly Epic
20 June 2016 | by akhil-marsonya27See 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.
