This is the reason Battle of the Bastards was one of the best Game of Thrones episodes ever

Because that epic instalment is still haunting us


It was a good few weeks ago now, but we still can’t stop thinking about Game of Thrones’ Battle of the Bastards.


We’re sure it was one of the best episodes of the gory HBO fantasy drama that we’ve been lucky enough to watch. And now we know why… 

From the dramatic tension during Rickon’s ever-so-straight run towards his brother to the camera angle when Jon was in the heart of the bloody battle, this clever video breaks down the smart storytelling in the epic episode, exposing how it toyed with our emotions, made our hearts race and left us quivering nervous wrecks. Can’t wait for the next series.


Game of Thrones will return for a seventh season
