They cranked it up to 11
26 June 2016 | by girugacottonSee all my reviews

They threw out everything I knew about last week's episode being a 10/10 and made their own rating system for this week's episode. How do you top the best episode of television of all time? Apparently with far and away the best television episode of all time. I expected the credits 20 minutes in and realized there was still almost an hour left.

I was an early cynic/critic of this season and I feel that was was a justifiable opinion but that was the best movie of the year and it was a TV show.

Hell they even made the sand snakes interesting again by infusing Olenna who is the absolute best when it comes to banter. Watching her crap all over them was the fan service everyone deserved.

Everything was shot beautifully, everything was perfectly paced. Everything was everything.
