Who will stand at the head of all the battlers. This is a great episode with amazing battle scenes. There are close calls, changes of strategy, close quarter beheadings, point, counterpoint, pyrotechnics. It's sort of an invasion of Normandy kind of setting with the battlements, archers firing as the troops, most of them fodder for the attack, fall along the way. There are a series of unanswered questions and the fate of several people is at stake. Mostly, we want to know what is going on with Tyrion who has actually been betrayed though he fought valiantly and saved the king's backside. Who will now sit upon the throne or is it all's well that ends well? We shall see.
