Season 6.09 “Battle of the Bastards” #BattlesofIceandFire

(00:52) Joey, Dujie, and Stephen attempt to recap this week’s episode! HOLY SHIT. Dany used some Rare Candies to level up. #dragonrage Grey Worm’s sweet moves, and Tyrion sweet words… The progeny get a chance to redeem their predecessors #DanyTyrion2016. Fur looks bad ass. Rickon, one word #SERPENTINE!! Cold Winds up North. Did Sansa fuck up? John is the luckiest man alive, #CreatorsOwnWords Medieval Warfare is crazy, but highly entertaining. BraveHeart Yara + Dany #QueensFTW Ending with fun theories for the final episode (book spoiler free).

(48:59) #RogueMaesterNation Joey and Stephen are huge nerds, still… This is all just fun and short speculation for the final episode and seasons to come.

Is Varys a mermaid? #swish Brienne + Jaimie, Pod + Bronn = best part of this episode. Jaime is dyslexic. T_T #RIPBLACKFISH T_T #offscreen. Edumure, WATCH #OUTLANDER! Machismo fuckery…SOO MUCH FANSERVICE #TheHound kills again, #chickens. #BwithoutB is b. Arya escapes fucking TreadStone #JasonBourne. Arya Stark of Winterfell.

(59:50) #RogueMaesterNation Joey and Stephen are huge nerds. Varys is going to Faegon still, sadly no dick warts, #rolltide. Arya goes to the edge of the known world? Brienne and Pod heading to the brotherhood? #ladystoneheart it may have been too long… Daenerys Stormborn’s #DragonTales #DragonZord
