Well written and climatic battle
9 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Episode written by novelist George R.R. Martin himself, the script here drips with sarcasm and is crisp as ever delivered by the show's fine actors. The sense of danger and urgency is omnipresent, the dialogues and monologues epic and the battle brutal, strategic and intense, even though like most of Game of Thrones it is purposely poorly lit.

A great episode following the high level of acting/directing in Alan Taylor's "The Prince of Winterfell" and ending unexpectedly with the entrance of a prominent character.

Tyrion, Cersei and Catelyn's characters dominate the screen time and shine while the cowardly young king punctuates a few dark moments. Politics, power, friendship, love and warfare intermingle in a delicious night to remember.
