21 Spot-On Reactions To This Week's Game of Thrones

Welp, that's it for "The Battle of the Bastards" - the 9th episode of Game of Thrones' astoundingly great 6th season (and the first without a book to adapt). And - I think I speak for everyone when I say "HOLY CRAP I NEED TO REWATCH THAT SHIT RIGHT NOW" because I did say that and then I did rewatch it and OH MAN IT'S EVEN BETTER THE SECOND TIME. Beyond simply being a great episode of TV (that effiiciently took care of both the Battle of Mereen AND the Battle of Winterfell), it's a testament to how much HBO truly believes in the show - they reportedly spent around $20 million (the normal GoT episode runs around half that), shot for about a month (wayyy longer than the normal shoot length), used 70 hours, 160 tons of gravel (for the horses to run on), and had over 500 extras.

And it was all worth it. One episode to go, and then the long winter of no episodes for another year begins.
