TV REVIEW: Game of Thrones – The Battle of the Bastards

Spoilers…Well, we’re a week away from the end of the season and this fact is killing me, but before all that there’s a little matter called The Battle of the Bastards, which is one of many things this series has been building up to – the fight between Jon and the Wildlings, and Ramsay and the forces of House Bolton for the seat of Winterfell and control of the North. An incredible episode, it still played out fairly simply to how you’d have thought it would, and most of the episode was focused on the conflict.However, it did take a…

TV REVIEW: Game of Thrones – Oathbreaker

Spoilers…Well, I’m not sure what Benioff and Weiss have had with their porridge, but similarly to last week this episode shot by. Obviously the focus was on Jon Snow – who to be fair is pretty hot for one of the undead – but the wheels are definitely in motion across Westeros.Only a short glimpse of Dany this week, with an introduction to the widows of the Great Khals, who were all seemingly promised glory alongside their Moon and Stars (although presumably none of them had dragons), while in Mereen, Varys talked business with a conspirator of the Sons of…
