my personal favorite episode of this show
23 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the best episode of the whole series and the second best battle scene I've ever watched, as soon as a big chunk of stannis baratheon's fleet gets ambushed by wildfire and the music kicks in when stannis arrives at king's landing with his remaining soldiers, you get a real adrenaline rush, it's THAT awesome lol, this was a real treat for the fans. I can't wait to see the battle of castle black on season 4, it'll top blackwater I heard, and it'll be drawn out, bloody, gory, intense, brutal, exciting, and adrenaline rushing just like blackwater was :-). season 4 will be insane, it'll have more action, more blood, and more gore than ever before, the fans are in for a real treat since a storm of swords is balls out insane
