Sneak Peek more footage from the award-winning "Game Of Thrones episode "Battle of the Bastards", the ninth episode of the sixth season of the series, written by David Benioff, D. B. Weiss and directed by Miguel Sapochnik, that aired June 19, 2016 on HBO:


"...in the 'North', armies of the eponymous bastards, 'Jon Snow' (Kit Harington) and 'Ramsay Bolton' (Iwan Rheon), face off in a battle for control of 'Winterfell'. The 'Bolton' army defeats most of Jon's forces, largely composed of 'Wildlings'. However, 'Sansa Stark' (Sophie Turner) arrives with 'Petyr Baelish' (Aidan Gillen) and the 'Knights of the Vale' as they defeat the remaining 'Bolton' army.


"Ramsay retreats to Winterfell, where Jon beats him into the mud, locks him in the kennels and Sansa feeds him to his own hounds. In 'Meereen', 'Daenerys Targaryen' (Emilia Clarke) refuses to surrender to the 'Masters', mounts 'Drogon' and begins burning the Masters' fleet; this forces them to surrender. 


"'Yara' (Gemma Whelan) and 'Theon Greyjoy' (Alfie Allen) arrive in Meereen and offer their ships to Daenerys, swearing to help her take the 'Seven Kingdoms'..."


Battle sequences for the episode took 25 filming days to shoot, using 500 background performers, 600 crew members and 70 horses.
