Game of Thrones podcast for Battle of the Bastards is live

Posted on


Was that the most epic Game of Thrones ever? EW’s James Hibberd and Darren Franich break down the shocks, deaths, and twists from “Battle of the Bastards.”

James details what it was really like on the show’s muddy battlefield set in Northern Ireland last fall (spiders and a shirtless Kit Harington were involved), while Darren analyzes that unexpected Meereenese dragon trifecta and the triumph of Darth Sansa. Plus reader questions, trivia, and plenty of expressions of general and specific awe.
