• In episode nine, Battle of the Bastards, there were only two storylines. In Meeren, Daenerys uses her dragons to defeat the masters’ navies. Later Yarra and Theon arrive and swear their loyalty (and ships) to Daenerys.

    At Winterfell, an epic battle ensues between the two bastards, Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton. Bolton is killed, but not before he murders Rickon. Petyr Baelish arrives with the Knights of the Vale and Sansa by his side in the nick of time and saves the day.
