HBO’s secrecy surrounding Game of Thrones Season 6's “Battle of the Bastards” left it unclear if we’d seen any official photos ahead of time, but the penultimate outing’s sneak-peek is here, looming larger than ever. Even Wun-Wun is ready to step on some folk in the epic first photos of Jon and Ramsay’s face-off!

Going on three seasons now, Game of Thrones fans have anxiously awaited signs of another major resurrection that Season 6 seems to have dispelled, that of the infamous Lady Stoneheart. Sunday’s “No One” in particular seemed to snuff out the last bits of hope, but according to director Mark Mylod, the fan-favorite figure has never garnered so much as a moment of discussion.
Secrecy has proven something of a sore subject for Game of Thrones Season 6, with HBO attempting to limit the availability of spoilers (even from the press), and oftentimes failing miserably. To wit, the network even amusingly offered its final two Season 6 episode releases without any description whatsoever, but Emmy ballots for “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter” tell a different story.
Last week saw one of Game of Thrones’ very own tipping his lemon cloak toward the ocean of Lady Stoneheart theories swirling around Season 6, even as this past Sunday’s “No One” seemingly put the character’s appearance to rest once and for all. Now, Jóhannes Haukur shows us what might have been, filming the Lady Stoneheart introduction scene straight from George R.R. Martin’s books.

It’s that time again, as Game of Thrones finally arrives at its ninth episode of the year, with Season 6 promising to deliver a “proper battle” with “Hardhome” director Miguel Sapochnik’s aptly-named “Battle of the Bastards.” The first trailer promises more depth and destruction than ever, but might Jon Snow’s return have been for naught?
‘Game of Thrones’ has “No One” left to hid behind at this point in Season 6, mostly killing time before next week’s battle, but does Arya’s final showdown with The Waif come to a satisfying end? And what major fan theories seemingly bit the dust this week? Find out in our full review!
We’re only three episodes from the end of Game of Thrones Season 6, and conspiracy theorists are out in full swing, particularly when it comes to the long-awaited arrival of “Lady Stoneheart.” We’ve heard arguments back and forth as to whether the character would ever appear, but now an actor behind one of three mystery characters from “The Broken Man” is either having fun teasing fans, or about to get the hammer from HBO.
Just when you couldn’t handle any more Game of Thrones after learning of its whopping 69-minute finale, in comes “No One” with a new round of photos from the ante-penultimate hour. Check out Tyrion’s fresh threads and a conspicuously missing Arya in the latest look!
HBO played a bit coy in releasing only the episode synopsis and title of Game of Thrones Season 6's eighth episode, where prior foreign leaks seemingly gave away a familiar-sounding finale title. Now, sources confirm a major battle in episode 9, and a title George R.R. Martin might smirk at for the finale.
