Game of Thrones Season 6, Episode 9 review

Ramsay Bolton, Warden of the North, Lord of Winterfell
The Game of Thrones Battle of the Bastards is over and a few characters lie dead, a few characters lie wounded and nobody took their clothes off - hopefully there will be revelries in the next episode.

HBO threw a lot of marketing behind this issue, specifically telling viewers that this was an issue that could not be missed and that the battle would be the most epic army battle ever to be shown on television.

Viewers, readers and fans of Game of Thrones saw this episode as the potential redemption for a series that seemed to take delight in coming up with deliciously devious ways of killing protagonists and having evil rule triumphant.

So maybe this time, we thought.

Episode 9 of Season 6 of Game of Thrones actually showcases two battles. Aside from the Battle of the Bastards in Winterfell, there was still the matter of the Assault on the seemingly Khaleesi-less slave city of Meereeen. Just when Meereen starts to recover culturally, economically and psychologically from the ravages of the slave trade, the Masters return, reneging on the agreement that was eked out with Tyrion Lanister, and start to bombard the city into submission.

This episode was directed by Miguel Sapochnik (Repo Men, House M.D.) and was written by David Benioff (Troy, X-Men Origins Wolverine, and husband to the beautiful Amanda Peet) and D.B. Weiss (It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia, Halo)
