Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 09 Battle of the Bastards
No. 609. Title: Battle of the Bastards. Directed by Miguel Sapochnik. Written by David Benioff & D. B. Weiss. Original Air Date: June 19, 2016. Sinopse: Daenerys meets with the slave masters to negotiate terms of surrender, but they refuse it. She then rides Drogon, as Rhaegal and Viserion assist them in burning the slaver’s fleet. Grey Worm kills two of the masters, leaving one to tell of what he had witnessed. After the battle, Theon and Yara meet with Daenerys and Tyrion and agree to an alliance. The Starks and Boltons meet before the battle, with Ramsay ordering them to surrender. On the following morning, the confrontation begins. Ramsay brings out Rickon and tells him to run towards the Stark army, firing arrows at him as he does. Jon tries to save him, but Rickon is killed by an arrow. The battle ensues with the wildlings becoming pinned by Bolton soldiers, but they are rescued by the Knights of the Vale. Ramsay flees inside Winterfell but Wun Wun, having taken numerous arrows to his body, manages to break the door down, before succumbing to his wounds. Jon almost brutally beats Ramsay but not fatally, and takes him prisoner. Sansa later brings Ramsay’s starving hounds to his cell and watches as they devour him.
Jon, Sansa, Tormund and Davos meet with Ramsay, Harald Karstark and Smalljon Umber before the battle. Ramsay offers surrender terms, saying he will pardon Jon for breaking his Night’s Watch vows if he will hand Sansa over. Jon offers Ramsay a chance to settle their dispute in one-on-one combat; Ramsay refuses, saying he is not certain he can personally beat Jon, but is certain the Bolton army can defeat the Stark loyalists. When Jon and Sansa express disbelief that Ramsay has Rickon, Smalljon throws out Shaggydog’s head. Sansa refuses the terms of surrender and tells Ramsay he will die the following day before riding off.
JON: You don’t have to be here.
SANSA: Yes, I do.
RAMSAY: My beloved wife. I’ve missed you terribly. Thank you for returning Lady Bolton safely. Now, dismount and kneel before me, surrender your army and proclaim me the true Lord of Winterfell and Warden of the North. I will pardon you for deserting the Night’s Watch. I will pardon these treasonous lords for betraying my house. Come, bastard, you don’t have the men, you don’t have the horses, and you don’t have Winterfell. Why lead those poor souls into slaughter? There’s no need for a battle. Get off your horse and kneel. I’m a man of mercy.
JON: You’re right. There’s no need for a battle. Thousands of men don’t need to die. Only one of us. Let’s end this the old way. You against me.
SANSA: You’re going to die tomorrow, Lord Bolton. Sleep well.
