The previously-aired episode 8 of "Game of Thrones" Season 6 may have been a little too slow and inconsequential, but you can rest assured the two final episodes of the season will be bloody and amazing. The title of episode 9, "Battle of B-------," should already have you getting the snacks ready for a night in on Sunday, June 19.

Here are the top five predictions for "Game of Thrones" Season 6 episode 9 "Battle of B-------"
- Jon Snow (Kit Harrington) and Ramsay Bolton (Iwan Rheon) finally face off: After much animosity, the two b------- will finally face each other in an epic battle. Fans are waiting to see their beloved Jon Snow kill the widely-hated Ramsay, to finally prove that even in the unfair world of "Game of Thrones," there is some form of justice.
- Littlefinger saves the day: Even with every soldier that has promised to fight with Jon Snow to help Sansa (Sophie Turner) win the North, the army does not stand a chance against Bolton's army. However, the master manipulator, Littlefinger (Aiden Gillen), may step in and save the day after he receives the secret letter Sansa sent him. The Telegraph has revealed what was written in the letter:
"You [promised] to protect me. Now you have [a chance] to fulfill your promise. [The Knights] of the Vale are under your command. Ride [north] for Winterfell. [Lend] us your aid and I shall see to it that you are [rewarded]."
- Two major deaths: "Battle of B-------" is expected to see two bloody deaths, and while we might assume it could be the two titular b------- Jon Snow and Ramsay Bolton, a reliable prediction says that it will be the young King Tommen (Search Results Dean-Charles Chapman) and Rickon Stark (Art Parkinson) that will meet their maker.
- Exclusive focus on the battle for the North: As is the tradition for episodes that focus on major wars like "The Watchers of the Wall" and "Blackwater," many fans have predicted that the "Battle of B-------" will also be solely shot at the location of the war.
- Sansa will finally her revenge: Sansa has been patiently waiting to make Ramsay pay for everything he has done to her. Fans are predicting, or at least hoping, that she will get to kill him in the battle.
