"Battle of the Bastards" is the ninth and penultimate episode of the sixth season of HBO's fantasy television series Game of Thrones and its 59th episode overall. It was written by series co-creators David Benioff and D. B. Weiss, and directed by Miguel Sapochnik. Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton face off in a battle for control of Winterfell. The Bolton army defeats most of Jon's force, mostly composed of Wildlings. Meanwhile, Daenerys Targaryen defeats the Masters in Meereen and begins making new alliances. "Battle of the Bastards" was praised as one of the series' best episodes, with several reviewers calling it a "masterpiece". Critics described the battle in the North as "terrifying, gripping and exhilarating" and Daenerys's reunion with her dragons at the beginning of the episode as "thrilling". Its eponymous battle took 25 days to film and required 500 extras, 600 crew members and 70 horses. In the United States, the episode had a viewership of 7.66 million in its initial broadcast. It earned Game of Thrones several Primetime Emmy Awards (including Outstanding Directing and Outstanding Writing); the episode was Harington's choice to support his nomination for the Outstanding Supporting Actor.
