Yeah, I think it's high time for a really great episode this season!
And this time I have high hope they will finally deliver ... the pure numbers are already impressive ...

Game of Thrones: Battle of the Bastards by the numbers

Game of Thrones

Posted June 16 2016 — 10:25 AM EDT
We’ve been told the Battle of the Bastards is Game of Thrones’ biggest battle ever.
But how big is big, exactly? What went into making the upcoming Snow vs. Bolton face-off in episode 9 (the photos for which are getting us very excited)?
Here’s what it took to pull off the battle sequence in Sunday’s episode, which is directed by Miguel Sapochnik (“Hardhome”):

600 crew members

Crew can include everything from cameramen to prop masters to costume department. 

500 extras

The performers filled out the Snow and Bolton armies, playing wildlings, archers, swordsmen, spearmen, etc. The armies were trained separately to create a competitve off-screen rivalry that would hopefully then become apparent on camera during the fighting scenes. Visual effects were then used to expand the armies into the thousands.

160 tons of gravel

Heavy rain made the production’s field in Northern Ireland extremely muddy. Horses don’t like mud. So gravel had to be brought in to give the horses some traction. Which leads us to…

70 horses

One of the most difficult aspects of making the battle. You typically only see horses in a war sequence nowadays in a major big-budget Hollywood film as the animals are notoriously difficult to coordinate – and quite expensive. Adding horses typically makes the process of shooting a scene take twice as long.   

25 stuntmen and women

Somebody’s gotta fall off those horses and endure Kit Harington’s beatings.

25 shooting days

To get a sense of how long this is, most TV dramas are shot in 8-to-12 days. And that’s for a full episode, whereas Thrones spent 25 days on this battle sequence alone (the sequence isn’t all fighting – there’s some sideline drama as well).

4 camera crews

This one is pretty self explanatory.

$$$ dollars

How much did this episode cost? We don’t have an exact figure for you. But Thrones season 6 cost north of $10 million per episode and that’s considered very much an average – the price per hour varies and “BOB” is presumably the season’s most expensive episode. So go ahead and guess (and you might even be right).

That was quite possibly the best episode of the entire series. Best battle ever depicted on television. I really liked seeing Jon getting the chosen one vibes, with all of the arrows missing him, and him fighting back up from the pit of people. Loved Ramsey's fate. He had to go in order to make room for the true villains, the White Walkers. Also, the battle in Meereen was bad ass. Loved seeing the dragons unleashed. Hopefully Dany is heading to Westeros in the next episode. Also, I got goosebumps when they raised the Stark banners over Winterfell, its been a long time coming

Yeah, I loved the Mereen scenes too, especially that the Dragons finally are in action.
And it was high time that Ramsay was removed from the story. I really couldn't stand him any ep longer!
I didn't exactly care though, how he was eaten alive by his own dogs. It was just another moment of the usual GoT gore ...


I'm not sure, if you'd like my view of the Battle of Winterfell on the other hand ... maybe because I didn't read the books and know Got only from TV, I may tend to nitpick more often ... Wink

Well, this has all surpassed the books now anyway, My biggest complaint was that Ghost wasn't in the battle with Jon. There's no way he goes into battle without him. I think it is clear now that Jon is the chosen one, he survived a helluva lot, none of the arrows hit him, going toe to toe with 6000 soldiers. He has a higher purpose. I'm sad next week is the finale.
