Game of Thrones: The night before the battle

Game of Thrones Season 6 Episode 09 Battle of the Bastards

After Jon discusses the battle plan with Tormund and Davos, Sansa criticises Jon for attacking without gathering more men and warns him that Ramsay will be able to counter their battle plans. Jon insists that this is the largest army they could possibly gather.

SANSA: If you had asked for my advice earlier, I would have told you not to attack Winterfell until we had a larger force, or is that obvious, too?
JON: When will we have a larger force?! We’ve pleaded with every house that’ll have us. The Blackfish can’t help us. We’re lucky to have this many men.
SANSA: It’s not enough!
JON: No, it’s not enough. It’s what we have! Battles have been won against greater odds.
SANSA: If Ramsay wins, I’m not going back there alive. Do you understand me?
JON: I won’t let ever let him touch you again. I’ll protect you, I promise.
SANSA: No one can protect me. No one can protect anyone.





Later, Jon meets with Melisandre and asks her not to bring him back if he should die in battle. Melisandre replies that it is not her gift that has brought Jon back but the Lord of Light’s.

JON: My lady. You weren’t at the war council.
MELISANDRE: I’m not a soldier.
JON: Any advice?
MELISANDRE: Don’t lose.
JON: If I do, if I fall… don’t bring me back.
MELISANDRE: I’ll have to try.
JON: I’m ordering you not to bring me back.
MELISANDRE: I am not your servant, Jon Snow.
JON: You’re in my camp. I’m the commander.
MELISANDRE: I serve the Lord of Light. I do what he commands.
JON: How do you know what he commands?
MELISANDRE: I interpret his signs… as well as I can. If the Lord didn’t want me to bring you back, how did I bring you back? I have no power. Only what he gives me and he gave me you.
JON: Why?
MELISANDRE: I don’t know. Maybe you’re only needed for this small part of his plan and nothing else. Maybe he brought you here to die again.
JON: What kind of god would do something like that?
MELISANDRE: The one we’ve got.







Davos and Tormund discuss their time serving Stannis and Mance respectively, with both acknowledging that they may have been serving the wrong king for so long. Davos walks on and comes across the pyre where Shireen was burned, also finding the wooden stag he had given her before she died.
