Spoiler-free report as fans applaud latest episode
Spoiler-free report: The latest episode of Game Of Thrones has been voted the show’s best to date by fans.
‘Battle of the Bastards’ – the ninth episode of the sixth season – aired on Sunday (June 19) and was repeated on Monday night (June 20). The episode saw a showdown between Sansa Stark and Jon Snow’s army and that of Ramsay Bolton.
Since its broadcast, it has gained a perfect 10.0 rating on the IMDB website after nearly 8,000 votes. It replaces season three’s ‘The Rains of Castamere’ as the highest rated episode.
Meanwhile, Kit Harington has said he doesn’t know whether he will ever act alongside Emilia Clarke in Game Of Thrones.
The actor, who plays Jon Snow in the HBO series, also speculated about the results were they to appear in a scene together, in a new interview.
“I don’t know whether I will [work with Clarke]! Haven’t got a clue whether we’ll ever meet,” he told Shortlist. “We’ve never shared a single scene, so it might be dynamite, or it might be complete tosh.”
Harington also said it was time for Snow to leave The Wall, the 100 leagues long fortification that runs along the northern border of the Seven Kingdoms, in the latest series. “I’ve been there long enough now. I think it’s the right time to fuck off,” he said.
He continued: “You can only stay static in one huge story for so long. I think I’d been there a little too long.”
