This is it, folks. "The Battle of the Bastards" is supposedly the greatest, grandest and goriest battle that Game of Thrones has ever staged, and given the fact that the series already has the epic fights from "Hardhome," "The Watchers on the Wall" and "Blackwater" under its belt, that's one heck of a claim.
This battle of the snowmen — Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and Ramsay Snow/Bolton (Iwan Rheon) — might determine the fate of Westeros as a whole. Should Ramsay win, the massive North would still be pro-Lannister (if Ramsay upholds his father's pledge to the Lions) and keep Westeros more unified under Tommen and whichever puppet master is controlling him. But if Jon wins, it's a sign of revolution brewing.
More importantly, should Jon win, he might be able to do something about those White Walkers who are ever-so-slowly marching south. Think Ramsay would lift a finger to battle the ice wights? Probably not.
In short, this promised battle won't just be glorious to behold for its scale and production values, it could shape the whole story. #TeamStark!
Sadie's recap will be up soon after the East Coast airing, but we know you'll have thoughts on the episode immediately. What did you think of the episode?
