It was really emotional for Starks loyalists among the GOT fan community to see Boltons banners being pulled down and House Stark sigil shining in the air at the Winterfell after so many years. The show-makers delivered a big pay-off as the Battle of the Bastards played out exactly as the fans had envisioned, raising the expectations from the finale.
Liam Cunningham (Davos Seaworth) praised Kit Harington for his special efforts. He said “I mean he’s fantastic. Once we hit the battle scene he had hardly anything to say – hardly a line – and yet he just does so much with his face. He’s just completely blossomed … he’s done a remarkable job and I have to applaud the man’s work on ‘Game of Thrones.’ He’s been fantastic.” He further said “If he doesn’t, at the very least, get nominated for his work throughout the whole season, there is no God. We’ll see how it shakes out.”
There is one thing which is in the minds of GOT fans i.e What was Jon Snow’s Direwolf Ghost doing during the battle or before that? Some of the fans are saying that he was either mapping the battle-ground or was there to protect Sansa Stark. When Liam Cunningham was asked a question specifically on the Jon Snow’s direwolf, he said “Yeah that would have been cool, obviously a big battle like that is no place for a direwolf. They’re not gonna last very long – I mean look at what happened to Wun Wun, the last of the giants.”
He does have a point as we have already lost Shaggydog (Rickon Stark’s direwolf), Ghost is too precious to be used in a brutal war where even the giant fell, maybe he will live to fight another day. Although, it would have been epic if Ramsay was served to Ghost during the lunch time. [:/ :/ :/]
