HBO is holding off from releasing any official description or synopsis for this week’s episode of Game of Thrones, titled “Battle of the Bastards.” Finally bringing the Stark Army and the Bolton Army to a head outside of Winterfel as welll, the upcoming battle has been something the show has been working towards ever since Jon was back to life, and therefor freed from his Night’s Watch vows. After all, will it be Jon who finally teaches Ramsay Bolton a lesson? With Sansa at his side no less?

These are some of the biggest questions that fans will have going into this Sunday night. As of right now though, the only thing that we know about the episode is what was shown in the small teaser trailer and the tiny line of info given in the show’s Emmy submissions this year, so it looks like we’ll have to wait until the episode actually starts on Sunday night before we get any inclination even of the answers it might hold.

Today, in anticipation of the new episode as well, HBO has revealed several new photos from “Battle of the Bastards,” in case you couldn’t already tell that this was going to be the show’s biggest episode yet:

In addition to Sansa likely receiving her reply from Littlefinger, “Battle of the Bastards” is shaping up to be one of the show’s most important episodes to date, and we’re not just talking about the size of its set pieces either. With Davos likely learning the fate of Shireen Baratheon from last season in the new episode as well, there may be more conflicts coming to ahead in the new episode, than just Ramsay and Jon’s.

Directed by Miguel Sapochnik, the same man who directed “Hardhome” last year as well, maybe more than any other episode of the season so far, “Battle of the Bastards” won’t be an episode that anyone will want to miss. Now, all we have left to do is sit and wait.

“Battle of the Bastards” will air this Sunday on HBO.
