The bells brought the best episode of Game Of Thrones yet.
27 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

What a thrill! I don't even know where to start.

"I hate bells..." Varys said. But viewers do love them. Unlike the other wars that happened in Game Of Thrones, or should had happened (Because they were cut off) This was the first one that was showed completely. This episode (written by George R.R. Martin himself) was the best one yet. I was seating on the edge of my seat and couldn't believe what was going on...

The whole season has been developing to get here, the war... and boy what a war... I dare to call it a perfect 10.... I won't spoil it, go ahead and watch it!
