Quotes

Tormund Giantsbane: It's not his men that worry me. It's his horses. I know what mounted knights can do to us. You and Stannis cut though us like piss through snow.
Jon Snow: We're digging trenches all along our flanks. They won't be able to hit us the way Stannis hit you, in a double envelopment.
Tormund Giantsbane: [blank stare]
Jon Snow: A pincer move.
Tormund Giantsbane: [blank stare]
Jon Snow: They won't be able to hit us from the sides.
Tormund Giantsbane: Good.

One of the Best Episodes of Game of Thrones (if not The Best)

In Winterfell, Jon Snow, Sansa, Davos and Tormund meet with Ramsay and Jon Snow proposes a dispute between them instead of sacrificing lives in a battle. Ramsay does not accept and they schedule the battle in the morning. Jon Snow plots a scheme with Davos and Tormund and Sansa warns that Ramsay plays dirty. When both armies are ready to battle, Ramsay brings a surprise that affects Jon and his army. Who will win the bloody battle?

"Battle of the Bastards" is one of the best episodes of Game of Thrones (if not the best). This masterpiece shows powerful women (Daenerys, Yara and Sansa) and the most incredible battles. There is nothing more to say about this perfect episode that has not been written before. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Battle of the Bastards"
