Days ahead of the Season 6 finale, Game of Thrones fans don’t yet know how many more episodes lie ahead in Seasons 7 or 8, but that isn’t stopping the cast from cashing in. A new report suggests the bigger Game of Thrones stars are in for a major payday in the final seasons, simultaneously laying to rest theories of which character dies in “The Winds of Winter.”
Now that the dust has settled on Game of Thrones’ big “Battle of the Bastards,” production has gone in-depth with near-every aspect of the 30-minute battle sequence. Well, almost. Fans certainly noticed a peculiar omission, to which director Miguel Sapochnik explains why one favorite fighter curiously ghosted the battle.

At long last, Game of Thrones finally brought us its first proper battle in Sunday’s aptly-named “Battle of the Bastards,” offering everything we hoped it could be. So much work went into the final showdown between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton, that HBO released a full ten-minute featurette chronicling production.
Now that we’ve all swept up our jaws from the floor after Sunday’s “Battle of the Bastards,” Game of Thrones is already gearing up for its sixth season finale. “The Winds of Winter” are rising, even if Kings’ Landing seems anything but cold, with Cersei’s fiery trial and more looming in the first trailer.
‘Game of Thrones’ stages a “Battle of the Bastards” for the ages, but even in the penultimate Season 6 outing, is visual spectacle enough to fight off some predictable twists? And what new queenly pairing has us shpping all over Westeros, literally and figuratively? Find out in our full review!
HBO’s Westworld adaptation has equal parts anxiety and anticipation in the wake of its various hiccups, but with a fall premiere slowly forming, might a new teaser allay concerns? We’ll find out this Sunday, as the second official Westworld teaser trailer drops just ahead of Game of Thrones’ big “Battle of the Bastards.” See the first footage right now!
Days from its premiere, Game of Thrones is still keeping a fairly tight lid on penultimate Season 6 installment “Battle of the Bastards,” to say nothing of its “Winds of Winter” finale. That said, the big battle might not be all this Sunday has to offer, as a leaked report suggests a major meeting will be taking place, perhaps forming the next great ship to rival Tormund and Brienne.
Not only will Game of Thrones bring us its traditional ninth episode bloodbath this Sunday with Season 6's “Battle of the Bastards,” but so too are a number of heroes and villains alike expected to fall. One Irish bookmaking site even put odds on the big deaths (there’s good news and bad), while enough report goes deep into the 500-extra shoot.
