Watch Game of Thrones Season 4 Episode 9
One of the most epic battles of this season begins with this episode, the penultimate episode of this season. It signals the start of the war for the survival of Castle Black. Mance and the Wildlings finally reach the wall along with their giants to attack it. Just before the battle is about to begin, Gilly reaches the wall, which relieves Sam. As Sam hides Gilly in a safe room, they both share a kiss. After this, Sam goes off to join his brothers at the wall.
Along with Mance and his attack at the wall, Ygritte begins to assault the gates of the castle. In the midst of the battle, she comes face to face with Jon Snow, during which they just stare at each other. Ygritte is shot with an arrow in her back, and finally dies in Jon Snow’s arms. The battle cools down after this as Mance decides to try again after the following evening. In this lapse, Jon thinks that if Mance can be killed, then the Wildlings army would be completely disorganized and may just leave, since their leader would not be there to help them guide against the Night’s watch. The episode ends with Jon Snow setting out from the wall into the woods for a meeting with Mance.
