Amazing how Rickon seemed to cover the same amount of ground as jon's horse

Obviously Rickon never saw The In-Laws.

Clearly that's why Jon had to get off his horse to get a better view at what Ramsay was going to do...then he had to run back and get on his horse, which slowed him down.

I believe all the direwolves are, or will be, killed off on the show. Saves on the CGI.

Nymeria (arya's) may be the only one left alive on the show continuity, and I think the show is just going to forget about her. In the books Nymeria is mentioned in passing several times.

In the books and subsequently in the show, the death of the direwolf tended to spell struggle or trouble for the character - Lady (Sansa's) is the first to bite it and BAD THINGS happen to Sansa.

Will be interesting to see where they take the Jamie/Cersei thing since Jamie has already killed one person to try and burn down KL.

When did Ghost die during the show? I must have missed it.

Ghost is still alive, just not shown. Was expecting him to help John in the battle. 

Apperently it its extremely expensive to cgi the dire wolves.

How do you know the Horse didn't get to where the two would've met quicker? all you have is a shot of the two about to meet. There's no indication that that spot is equidistant.

How does that article fail to mention that the battle that truly inspired the choreography was The Battle of Cannae.

They originally intended to base it on Agincourt, but switched to the much older battle led by Hannibal. The director has straight up said this in interviews, so it is kind of a glaring oversight to write an article like that and skip it.

The strategy Jon and company planned was clearly based on Cannae.

The actual battle didn't resemble it much other than them ending up surrounded.

Yes, the Battle of Cannae was the father of many of these battle concepts, like the pincer maneuver and the crowding together of the enemy, but the subject of the article I posted was Medieval, not ancient. I suppose the author should have mentioned in passing the origin of that military strategy, but once again that wasn't the era he was discussing.
