In April 2018, Game of Thrones assistant director Jonathan Quinlan posted his thank you note to everyone on the show for their involvement in what amounted to a battle sequence that wrapped after 55 consecutive nights.
Now, a year later, the Battle of Winterfell has come to a dramatic end, concluding what was the largest and longest battle in TV history.
