'Game of Thrones' battle even crazier from behind the scenes

It's only fitting with Game of Thrones style!

The big payoff in this episode is the long-awaited meeting between Daenerys, now settling into her throne at Dragonstone and Jon Snow, King of the North.

In Episode 4, Daenerys was looking to get the steamy deets from Missandei on Grey Worm's knowledge of the, uh, "south" when Jon suddenly appears.

Now, Dany may be saying "bend the knee", but what she's really saying is "RAVISH ME, Jon Snow".

Also, it's pretty obvious to everyone, particularly Ser Davos, that Dany and Jon are into each other. The two are left in a sort of stalemate. Cersei then kisses Tyene with lips coated with the same poison Ellaria used to kill Myrcella in season five. Bran quotes Littlefinger's catchphrase, "Chaos is a ladder", which deeply shakes Littlefinger and convinces him that Bran knows too much for that sort of trickery to work. This battle also allowed us to see Joffrey and Tyrion for who they truly were - Joffrey sinking from the task at hand and abandoning the battle at a crucial time, while Tyrion delivers a rousing speech to lead the king's forces against the invaders.

"Our first scene together was our reunion scene and we f-- up so many times", Turner told Entertainment Weekly.

Jaime Lannister (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau) was caught in quite the proverbial pickle during the latest episode of Game of Thrones, battling against Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who lived up to her name as the Mother of Dragon, and was almost burnt to a crisp in the process. After a moment's hesitation, Brienne agrees, and the two begin to sword fight. Bran might have the most dramatic transformation out of all of the Stark children because he's not Bran anymore; technically, he's the Three-Eyed Raven.

That could make things a little awkward - there have been some hints of chemistry between Jon and Daenerys and, well, she is his aunty.

The Breaker of Chains takes her Dothraki army and goes on the offensive.

Most viewers think that Jaime will survive - dragged ashore by right-hand man Bronn (who we love purely because he sniggered at Dickon's name).

Randyll Tarly's face when Jamie said that the troops deserved "fair warning" before the flogging commenced was the best face ever. As you get progressively to the edges of the cone, people are partially on fire and cooking in the armor as they rush to the water. That's quite a jump for a guy primarily known for directing episodes of It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia.

The attack, officially dubbed the "loot train attack" by the crew, was a hard challenge for the creative team behind Game of Thrones.
