This Fan-Made ‘Game of Thrones’ Trailer Will Get You Ready For Battle

"Bastard Bowl" is imminent, and one Youtube user is making sure we're all ready.


Next week’s penultimate episode of “Game of Thrones” has everyone excited, thanks to two factors: the revealing title, “Battle of the Bastards,” and the short HBO teaser that previews the showdown between Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton.

The official teaser, however, pales in comparison to a new fan-made trailer for the episode, edited from show footage by YouTube user ControvT. Set to a dramatic soundtrack, the video rehashes all the major events that led to the upcoming Northern showdown, including Ned and Robb Stark’s murder, Sansa’s rape, and various other atrocities committed by the Boltons.

HBO’s episode description is less than helpful in revealing the events of Episode 9, saying merely, “Terms of surrender are rejected and accepted,” but the clash of Northern families is sure to be one of the biggest, bloodiest battles in “Game of Thrones” history. The HBO hit has a history of making Episode 9 the biggest and most painful in the season — see “Blackwater” and “The Red Wedding” for evidence — so odds are good that Sunday’s showdown will not disappoint.

Prepare for battle with the fan-made trailer below.
