Storyline

Meereen is under siege and the fleet of the masters is attacking the city. Daenerys wants to destroy their cities but Tyrion convinces her to not incur in the same mistake of her father in King's Landing. They schedule a meeting with the masters to discuss the terms of surrender. However the masters misunderstand and believe Daenerys want to surrender. She rides Drogon and together with the two other dragons, they burn part of the fleet. Meanwhile Daario and the Dothraki attack the Sons of the Harpy. Then Yara and Theon team up with Daenerys to accept the independence of the Iron Isles and to overthrow Euron.

Quite possibly the best episode in all of TV.
2 July 2017 | by justin-fencsakSee all my reviews

This episode is to the series what Goodbye Farewell, and Amen was to Mash, and Ozymandias to Breaking Bad...a classic series episode that prepares the viewer for what's next in the future. The battle scenes in this episode are the best ever made for television, and at a big cost. The locations where this show is filmed is very exotic, and the characters and dragons rule the show. The music is amazing as well as the pace of the show. If you have to see just one episode of GOT, this is the one.
