Holy C**p

WARNING: SPOILER ALERT
Game of Thrones – Season 6

Game of Thrones has been a much-needed diversion for me, given current events (more on that later). Having just watched Episode 9, “Battle of the Bastards”, I’m almost caught-up (one more episode to go).

If I thought Season 5’s “Hardhome” was intense – I mean intense – it paled by comparison.

All three dragons (Drogon, Rhaegal, and Viserion) were finally reunited. God, Drogon is HUGE!!! There are still shots out there of this one particular scene with Daenerys and Drogon. To actually “see” Drogon’s head wrapping around her body – that was something. I’m not a big fan of CGI, but I’ve nothing but praise for the GoT “dragon-masters”.

Although it was satisfying to see all three brothers kicking ass in Meereen, the battle scene at Winterfell was…horrifyingly real.

No surprise here: both “Hardhome” and “Battle of the Bastards” were directed by the same person: Miguel Sapochnik.

Not one to engage in commentary with characters on-screen, I was exchanging dialogue (albeit one-sided) like mad. I just couldn’t help myself… ;>
