Game of thrones, Battle of the bastards, review

This post contains spoilers, so proceed at your own risk,
The 6th episode of game of thrones season 6 aired on sunday, and I must say it was Epic. I personally was not expecting the battle to be this awesome, considering the fact that it was on TV, but I guess they increased the budget for this one.
okay, now lets dig in and see what I liked and what I didn't.

I would start with the good stuff, which there are so many, but I would choose the ones that really sold it to me.

Starting with Sansa, she was one of the best part of  the episode, the way she is with jon in the conversation before the battle, the way she says to ramsay " you are going to die tomorrow morning, Lord Bolton. Sleep well". I absolutely loved it, I guess I loved her performance throughout this season, she has turned into a fine badass women.
I also loved the way she killed Ramsay by his own hounds, while standing right there, watching the whole scene standing right there, and then that smile on her face was more than awesome.

Speaking of Ramsay's death, I think it was one the most satisfying things I have seen on Game of throne. I shouldn't speak ill of the dead, but he was one mean bastard I am happy is dead.

jon snow was awesome as usual, first of all I loved it when Jon challenges Ramsay to one on one fight, "lets end this the old way, you against me" and Ramsay is afraid to accept. that was one of my most favourite scenes of the episode.
And then when Jon snow charges in all alone, and he standing there with his sword drawn, waiting for them to come near so he can strike, and as he is about to strike His army flows in before him and the battle begins, that scene is done so well, I literally rewound it a few times and watched it again and again.

Another one of my favourite scenes was when daenerys and tyrion are discussing terms of surrender with the masters, and of them says "your reign is over" and daenerys replies " my reign has just begun" and a dragon appears and she rides it and the masters and the soldiers are scared silly, and daenerys burns a few ships. it was Epic. I wonder with that army and the dragons and tyrion by her side, who is gonna fight daenerys?

Rickon getting killed was really heartbreaking I was like, go zigzag you fool go zigzag. but of course he is a kid with no training and terrified beyond imagination.
Another thing that was heartbreaking was the death of Wun Wun the giant.

there was one thing that I won't say I didn't like, but didn't understand. it was if sansa knew she had a great army at her disposal, then when she was fighting with jon that they dont have enough men, and jon was saying that's all they are gonna have, why didn't she just tell him about the army? thousands of people could have been saved.
but I am hoping jon will asked about it in the season finale and we will know more.

So overall I loved it, it was the best episode of this season so far.

let me know what you guys think.
