Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 9 Preview

Jon Snow has had enough of being dead for brief periods of time, you guys.

As if to pre-empt any fan theories if indeed he does get slain again, the Game of Thrones season 6 episode 9 'Battle of the Bastards' trailer sees him telling Melisandre ahead of the fight: "If I fall, don't bring me back."

The discussion comes over candlelight, suggesting the pair might also finally get rid of that sexual tension that's been brewing for seasons. Frankly I think Jon's earned it.

It's one hell of a trailer, teasing the battle for Winterfell between House Stark and House Bolton that will likely take up the whole episode. Whichever emerges triumphant there will be major casualties on both sides, and judging by the shot of a bloodied Ser Davos looking shellshocked on the battlefield, I fear the next episode could well be his last.

The Stark army is a little makeshift and is dwarfed by that of the Boltons, but it does have a few giants. Also, as we learned in episode 8 (spoilers ahead), the Tullys will likely be able to join them now they have given up Riverrun.

Thanks to the decoding of Sansa's letter from the previous episode, we can expect Littlefinger to bring the Knights of the Vale to the fray too.

If Jon and Sansa win, the stage is set for the final episode to reveal that the 'battle of the bastards' in fact only involved one bastard.
