(SPOILER ALERT: You may not want to read this if you have not see "Game of Thrones" Season 6, Episode 9 "Battle of the Bastards")

The epic "Battle of the Bastards" in Sunday's "Game of Thrones" episode started with the death of Rickon, one of the few Stark family survivors. Ramsey Bolton gave Rickon a chance to run for his life across a field to half-brother Jon Snow, while he shot arrows toward him. The frustrating part for GoT fans cheering Rickon to safety was that they knew he would not make it running in a predictable straight line.

Art Parkinson, who played Rickon Stark, acknowledged them in a tweet with the hashtag #shouldazigzagged: 'Had a good run.'
