This is one of those pieces that’s tough for me to cover, since I’m a spoiler-phobe. I haven’t seen last night’s GAME OF THRONES yet, and here I am sharing with you the teaser for next week‘s climactic episode. So I’m going to share it below, but I’m not going to watch it.

From what I gather, the stage has been fully set for Jon Snow, Ramsay Bolton, and their respective armies to have a legendary Battle of The Bastards in next week’s ninth episode of the sixth season of GAME OF THRONES.

Here’s the teaser for what could very well be the biggest episode ever for the acclaimed HBO series:

As usual, GAME OF THRONES has followed its tried and true pattern of using the whole season to build towards one central event. That event occurs in the penultimate episode of the season, and then the season finale examines the fallout of that event while planting seeds for the following season.

Are you psyched for the Battle of The Bastards? Think it can compare to past GAME OF THRONES penultimate episodes, which include things like the fate of Ned Stark, the Battle of Blackwater, the Red Wedding, the Battle of Castle Black, and last year’s The Dance of Dragons? 

For me, since it’ll be airing on Father’s Day, I’m going to pull my Daddy Card and tell everyone to clear the hell out of the room so I can watch this one as it happens.
