The most pleasuring sequences in the last Sunday 9th Episode “Battle of The Bastards” would be the one of the Jon beating the shit out of Ramsey after he is finally captured in Winterfell castle. Also in whole the entire episode had this really driving force kind of feeling in every single shot and sequence that kept us hooked to the screens. But when asked about it by the very makers of the show, the director Miguel Sapochnik on the whole of the battle shoot, he said, It was a little surreal but mostly fun. I mean you have to make it fun to take the nastiness out of it on set. And then moving ahead in this same interview by Entertainment Weekly when asked about the process of bringing Ramsey Bolton back into the cages and his captures, his words were, We spent an entire day beating Ramsay

“Early on, Kit [Harington, who plays Jon Snow] and I discussed what that moment was and how it should be an empty victory for Jon…From a certain point of view, Battle of the Bastards is all about his journey back to life, at the 11th hour, rediscovering the desire to live.”

It certainly was his journey back to life, after some much of bloodshed and conquering Winterfell, now he has a certain value for himself and the life he is to lead, thus, that impact has to be set right on the screen while shooting this particular scene. We believe it has reached up to almost everyone who watched the episode and even enjoyed seeing Ramsey taking those beatings, but in the reality Iwan Rheon who plays Ramsey “Took it on the chin a few times.”

Another piece of conversation by Miguel Sapochnik came in via Reddit which talked more about the finale scene of Ramsey tied up in his own dog’s cages, while Sansa pay him a last minute visit and then the dog ate him. That certainly was quite brutal but this wasn’t it would have gone as Miguel, “kind of wanted to make people start to feel for Ramsay in that wonderful way Thrones turns these things on their head.” But the show’s makers, writer-producer Benioff, and Weiss were quite clear about that, “They didn’t want anyone to sympathize with Ramsay Bolton and this time they wanted blood because Ramsay needs to die, and horribly. This is what the audience has been waiting to see”

Miguel even went on to explain about how horrifying the imaginations were worked, so to show it correct which even sounded correct,

“There’s no need to dwell on the actual carnage. What’s left to our imagination is always way worse. The most effective moment for me was the sound of a squealing pig you hear from Ramsay in the background as Sansa walks away. Apparently it’s actually what happens when you rip someone’s windpipe open while they’re still alive and gasping for air.”

But from all that Miguel has done on both the episode, 9 and 10 which is yet to come on screens, there is one very odd choice he holds onto while picking up his best moment on the show as he explains and provide us with one, “There’s a moment where she turns to leave but then stops and leans back in, lingering a moment longer. It’s my favorite shot of my episodes this year.”
