HBO submitted Sunday’s upcoming episode, “Battle of the Bastards,” and the finale, “The Winds of Winter,” for Emmy consideration, the ballots for which were posted online Monday, and included a few hints at what viewers can expect of the sixth season’s conclusion. While it initially appeared as though HBO wasn’t going to release any details about Game of Thrones‘ final two episodes this season, some very cryptic descriptions have now been released.
“Battle of the Bastards,” which will focus mainly on the war between the Starks and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon), is summed up as: “Terms of surrender are rejected and accepted.” The episode was submitted for both writing and directing, so our expectations are high for this one.
As for the “The Winds of Winter,” the description confirms that the finale will be the episode in which “Cersei (Lena Headey) faces her trial.” And this episode was submitted for costumes, so be prepared for some outstanding fashion in the season’s finale hour. (Well, technically the season’s final 69 minutes.)
It’s not a lot to go on, but we’ll take what we can get.
What are you predictions for “Battle of the Bastards” and “The Winds of Winter”?
