The Best Episode
25 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The coward Joffrey flees for the castle and the cunning Tyrion successively leads the defense of the castle from Stannis's army. Out of the blue, Tywin Lannister and the House Tyrell defeat Stannis and save King's Landing.

"Blackwater" is the best episode of "Games of Throne" so far and the show of Tyrion. His strategy and bravery contrast with the cowardice and arrogance of the cruel and despicable Joffrey. How Tyrion will be rewarded for King's Landing we will see on the next episode. Sansa now has the chance to flee from the castle. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Blackwater"
