‘Game Of Thrones’ Gets Ready For Battle With ‘The Watchers On The Wall’: See The Pics

The Battle For Castle Black begins.

We’re still reeling from the absolutely bonkers ending to the last episode of “Game of Thrones,” but if you can believe it, things are about to get even crazier. For seasons of the show, the threat of the Wildlings attacking The Wall has been omnipresent, and on Sunday (June 8), that threat becomes a reality.

Seriously, we cannot even deal with how epic this episode looks, and as fans of the show know, the team always saves the most draw-dropping, shocking moments for the ninth episode of the season. Guess which number episode “The Watchers On The Wall” is?

And if these new pics from the hour weren’t good enough, it’s directed by Neil Marshall, who previously did “Blackwater,” a.k.a. The Battle of King’s Landing, a.k.a. the biggest freakin’ episode the show has ever done.

So point being, our expectations for Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and the Night’s Watch’s defense of Castle Black are very, very high.
