Scores are getting settled in Westeros. Warning! Spoilers ahead!
A slew of new images were released today (June 15, 2016) teasing what fans can expect to see in episode nine of Game of Thrones this season, “Battle of the Bastards.”
This showdown is between Jon Snow (Kit Harington) and the ruthless Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) over the fate of Winterfell, the Stark stronghold in The North.
The wildings (including the giant) have joined in the melee. Ser Davos Seaworth (Liam Cunningham) and Tormund Giantsbane (Kristofer Hivju) are naturally on hand. However, there are no images of Melisandre (Carice van Houten) at the battle, which is interesting.
Here’s the episode synopsis: “Terms of surrender are rejected and accepted.”
Now, that’s infuriatingly mysterious. The most troubling image has to be Snow, Longclaw in hand (and standing seemingly alone) as the Bolton’s cavalry rides on him. Could help be on the way? Possibly from the sky?
We’ll just have to wait and see on Sunday! Check out the gallery above!
