"This is bigger than BOB."
"How can it be bigger than BOB?
"IT'S BIGGER THAN BOB."
Game of Thrones executive producer Bernie Caulfield remembers reading the Season 7 script for "The Spoils of War" and being in awe of what creators D.B. Weiss and David Benioff came to dub "The Loot Train Attack," a massive action set piece that would be even bigger than BOB a.k.a. the instant-classic "Battle of the Bastards." On top of battalions of armored troops -- more commonplace than anyone in Westeros would like, frankly -- "The Loot Train Attack" would pile on a horde of Dothraki riders, some oversized weaponry courtesy of Qyburn, a handful of the series' heroes, and for the first time in true land battle, Daenerys's dragon, Drogon. On the page it read like an unprecedented undertaking and a truly epic spectacle.
And anyone who tuned in to this week's Game of Thrones knows that that's exactly what "The Loot Train Attack" turned out to be.
