For what show creators have promised to be the biggest fight sequence of the series so far, HBO have released images of the forthcoming 'Battle of the Bastards' episode of Game of Thrones.

In the penultimate episode, Stark bastard Jon Snow goes to war with Bolton bastard Ramsay in a fight for the North. 

The pictures show Snow looking worried about what he's signed up for as he faces a charging line, seventh hardest GoT character (and giant) Wun Weg Wun Dar Wun wading into the fray, Tormund Giantsbane looking like he's going to burst several blood vessels, Ramsay on a pony and Ser Davos astride a horse possibly weighing up if there are still legs left in his character. Finally there's a nice shot of Sansa and Jon standing side by side with formidable stares, which almost certainly means one of them will die.

The whole thing looks a bit how the Battle of Hastings must have, just with a lot more hair gel and sworn family revenge. We can't wait.

The penultimate episode comes before a finale which will be the shows longest episode ever. Watch the full preview for more scenes of poor Jon Snow looking anxious.
