The director of this episode, Miguel Sapochnik, used Spielberg's Jaws as a reference for the attack. The idea was to make it like a scene from a horror movie, instead of an action or battle movie. See more »
As Jon and Tormund run to protect the gates against the Army of the Dead, Jon runs towards one of the wights and sticks his sword into it, then the camera changes to back view and we see Jon a few meters back, running again towards the same wight. See more »
Tyrion convinces Daenerys to become her adviser and she spares Johar, banishing him from Meereen. In king's Landing, Cercei refuses to confess and is informed that the High Sparrow has a strong case against her. In Braavos, Arya is assigned to pose as seller of oyster to spy a gambler. In Winterfell, Theon discloses to Sansa that Ramsay has mutilated him and also that he has not killed her two brothers Bran and Rickon. Ramsey tries to convince his father to attack Stannis. Jon Snow and Tormund meet the Wildlings in their village and try to convince them to move to Castle Black, but only 5,000 of them accept the offer and embark in the ships. Out of the blue, they are attacked by the wights and White Walkers.
"Hardhome" is probably the best episode of "Game of Thrones" so far with an unforgettable and exciting battle. All the segments are important and interesting but the fight between the Wildlings and the Night's Watch against the wights and the White Walkers is the best sequence ever. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): Hardhome
