Best Episde Of Game Of Thrones
12 November 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

WOW is all I can say. Now this is what I call great TV.

Plot In A Paragraph: Stannis has arrived to take Kings Landing and the Battle Of Blackwater begins.

Hands down the best episode of "Game Of Thrones" so far. On the whole, this episode really has no low points.

Sophie Turner really shines in this episode, and she shares some good meaty scenes with Rory McCann (The Hound) Lena Headey (Cersi) and Sibel Kekilli (Shae) Jack Gleeson is fine as Joffrey who's too young and frightened to risk his own life while Stannis is perfectly willing to do so, leading the battle from the front. Stephen Dillane's Stannis comes off really well in this episode and Conleth Hill's Varys always shines,

But this episode is all about one of my favourite characters and actors in the show Peter Dinklage's Tyrion Lannister. I have often praised his work on this show in my reviews. He won the Emmy for his work in the first season, and he should win another for his work in this episode alone. From the scene with Shae in bed where he talked about his nerves, to his rousing Speech to rally the troops after Joffery had fled to his work on the battlefield. He is simply superb

In the end, this is the show's finest hour in two seasons, and it's fitting it's the hour written by George R.R. Martin.
