The Recap Sequence
Naysayers who’ve been complaining about the slow pace of the past few “Game of Thrones” episodes were shut down with an action-packed episode 9, which aired Sunday night on HBO.
Many likely expected the episode — aptly titled “Battle of the Bastards” — to open with Jon Snow (Kit Harington, “Pompeii,” 2014) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon, “Misfits”), but the show opened in Meereen where Daenerys (Emilia Clarke, “Terminator Genisys,” 2015) and Tyrion (Peter Dinklage, “The Station Agent,” 2003) handily disposed of the Great Masters, with the help of a few dragons and the Dothraki of course.
