The Battle Of The B*****ds Voted Best Game Of Thrones Episode

The Battle Of The B*****ds Voted Best Game Of Thrones Episode

Whatever you thought to the ending of Game of Thrones, it's pretty impossible - well, unless you're one of those insufferable 'never seen a single episode' people - it's almost impossible to say that the show didn't provide us with some fantastic and compelling episodes over the years.

In fact, we held a bit of a poll on our Game of Thrones: Westeros Posting community group over on Facebook to ask the question about which episode was the best episode ever.

It seems like a pretty obvious choice, but by a long chalk the winner was 'The Battle of the Bastards'.

It feels like a lifetime ago, but cast your mind back. It was bloody awesome wasn't it? With double emphasis on the bloody.

It had everything that the Battle of Winterfell had, but in the light. At the time - at least, until that aforementioned blacked-out battle - it was like nothing else that had ever been achieved on television.

There's so much going on. Jon nearly gets suffocated to death underneath a pile bodies, Sansa and the Knights of the Vale ride to the rescue, Ramsay Bolton got what was coming to him (although not before killing young Rickon Stark).

I know what you're thinking - seriously, why didn't the young lad just zigzag?

Anyway, 'The Battle of the Bastards' was directed by Game of Thrones' go-to battle director Miguel Sapochnik and it's hard to argue that he wasn't exactly the right choice for the job.

In this poll, episode nine of season six managed to overcome some stiff competition to be named the best episode.

Way back in second place was 'Hardhome'. Also a pretty great episode. It also introduced us properly to our old friend the Night King. Boy, did it introduce us to his power.

Bizarrely, in third place was 'The Spoils of War'. Remember that one? Well, it was pretty action-packed. It was also the first time we really saw the immense destructive power of dragons against an entire army.

We all know how that turned out, eh?

Honourable mentions have to go to such fantastic episodes as 'The Winds of Winter' - which saw Cersei make the ultimate powerplay, blowing up the Sept of Baelor to become queen - and 'The Rains of Castamere' - which gave us the Red Wedding.

But what do you reckon? Which was the greatest episode in the whole series? Or was the whole thing ruined by the final season?

The debate continues, even if the series doesn't, over at Game of Thrones: Westeros Posting on Facebook.
