"Battle of the Bastards" delivers one of the greatest battle sequences in the show's history -- and some savagely satisfying vengeance as well.
Showrunners DB Weiss and David Benioff were true to their promise that the Battle of the Bastards would be unprecedented in sweep and ambition.
It was a smartly paced hour, crammed with big character moments for Sansa, Daenerys, and Jon, and at the same time it delivered two raging attacks.
Game of Thrones ninth episodes are often huge, and I don't think there's been one bigger than "The Battle of the Bastards," one of the best episodes the show has done to date.
Never have I had to pause an episode of television to walk off the stress of watching it, but I did just that no fewer than three times during "The Battle of the Bastards," the epic ninth episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones.
Big-budget fantasy battles are easy to come by in Hollywood these days, but this one did stand out by breaking up the hack-and-slash slog with a few concrete, memorable elements.
Beautifully chaotic, epically grimy, and almost unbearable to watch, but impossible to look away from.
As much as I enjoyed "Battle of the Bastards" with all its beautiful bluster, the real meal is what comes next.
Possibly the most incredible battle that has ever been seen on TV.
After a long wait, drawn out even longer by filler episodes, the two finally faced off in the epic smackdown that many have been waiting for - and it was worth it.
Game of Thrones puts on spectacular battles, but the point is always what happens next.
