Re: Let The Hero Lose.
Bats did lose in both of the later installments of the trilogy. Even though WE was able to manufacture an antidote to Crane's fear toxin, Bats was still unable to prevent it from being deployed. Think about all of the innocent civilians who were tripping in the worst possible way...
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
