There's no doubt Game Of Thrones REALLY knows how to make some big television, but Sunday night's installment was not only one of the most expensive episodes the show has ever done — it was one of the best!
Though we knew we were in for a treat thanks to all the AH-Mazing promos, the ninth episode of GoT appropriately titled Battle of the Bastards saw Kit Harington's Jon Snow face off against Iwan Rheon's vicious Ramsay Bolton — and it was EPIC!

Though we don't know exactly how much the ep cost, the average budget for each episode this season was around $10 million, up from $6 mil in previous seasons, and producers have admitted much of this season's extra money went into this one hour.
Seeing as how the production featured 600 crew members, 500 extras, 70 horses, 25 stuntmen and women, 25 shooting days, 4 camera crews, and a partridge and a pear tree, we're guessing it goes down as THE most expensive episode of television EVER!
So what did all that money pay for? One HELLUVA story that delivered some brutal and shocking moments!
Ch-ch-check out the seven CRAZIEST moments from last night's Thrones (below)!
