Ep. 9: Behind the Bastard Bowl

The most epic ‘Thrones’ ever? We break down the shocks, deaths and twists in ‘Battle of the Bastards,’ with James detailing what it was really like on the show's battlefield set in Northern Ireland (spiders and a shirtless Kit Harington are involved), while Darren analyzes that unexpected Meereenese dragon threeway. Plus reader questions, trivia and more. Tweet questions to @JamesHibberd and @DarrenFranich, or send us an email at GOTpodcast@ew.com and we'll try to get them answered in next week's episode!

Please rate us on iTunes and leave us a review! We’d love to hear from you. Thanks for listening, and don’t forget to come back every Monday for a new episode during season 6 of Game of Thrones!
