The Detail You Probably Missed About Daenerys Targaryen's Epic Battle Scene

Game of Thrones 704

Game of Thrones 704

The case could be made "The Spoils of War" was the best Game of Thrones episode ever and it is one of the highest rated.

Despite the presence of a massive dragon, the big final battle in this week's Game of Thrones included a lot of practical effects.

Any scene with Bronn and Jamie is excellent and this one is no different with Bronn's crass nature remaining strangely endearing.

We've seen what dragons are capable of back in Meereen when Drogon saved Daenerys' life then incinerated all the ships in Slaver's Bay.

For the first time in Westerosi history, a Dothraki horde attacks but they weren't alone as Daenerys Targaryen rode on the back of her dragon Drogon, raining down fire and brimstone on anything and everything in her path.

The worst villians in soap and TV from EastEnders' Janine Butcher and Cersi Lannister from Game of Thrones.

The big payoff in this episode is the long-awaited meeting between Daenerys, now settling into her throne at Dragonstone and Jon Snow, King of the North.

If he gets in Arya's way, that could mean the end of Littlefinger. Daenerys tells Jon she'll fight for him if he will bend the knee (aaargh!). In addition to her sword, Needle, Arya was gifted a Valyrian-steel dagger from Bran - one that holds a lot of meaning, apparently, given that it was once wielded by someone trying to kill Bran.

So when we recently caught up with Shepard on the set of a top-secret amusing or Die project, we asked the 42-year-old actor to take on our Wildfire Fast Five quiz - and apparently he's a big fan of the smoldering sexual tension between Daenerys and Jon. This was Tyrion's most conflicted moment, watching the woman he's vowed to serve take on the brother that he loves very much. The battle racked up quite the body count, but nothing left fans on the edge of their seats as much as Jaime narrowly avoiding being roasted by Drogon only to (maybe?) drown in the depths of a nearby lake. Whether successfully or not remains to be seen.

Using the first two epodes as building blocks, the third and fourth episodes deliver the type of television that has kept Game of Thrones fans on the edges of their seats since season one premiered six years ago.

"There's a point where we think someone is going to die - either Jaime or Dany", Shakman says. I am probably in the minority here, but I did not find "The Battle of the Bastards" that compelling. HBO, the producer and global distributor of the series, is calling the sequence the Loot Train Attack.

With Sansa's knowledge of the inner workings of the political system of Westeros and also a deep knowledge of how Cersei thinks, coupled with Arya's assassin skills, the two could make an incredible pair that can pretty much destroy whoever they want if they team up.
