The Most Epic Game of Thrones Battles, Definitively Ranked
14. The Battle of Winterfell
Episode: Season 5, Episode 10, “Mother’s Mercy”
Oh, Stannis (Stephen Dillane). By the end, your bid for the Iron Throne was getting a bit sad. Nothing shows that more than your embarrassing (and quick) defeat by House Bolton at the Battle of Winterfell. As Stannis and his army attempt to take Winterfell from the Boltons, they engage in battle just outside the castle. Stannis had a weak army, men who were starting to mistrust him, and all-in-all it seemed his spirit was broken. Not that many thought he’d end up on the Iron Throne by this point in the series anyway, but it was officially the end of his attempt and it was pretty ~whatever~ when everything was said and done. The only good thing that came out of this battle? Sansa Stark (Sophie Turner) finally escaping her captivity by the Boltons.
