User Reviews

8 August 2017 | by KingslaaySee all my reviews

This was the episode we have longed for this season and finally Game of Thrones has delivered. This show beautifully and perfectly captures battle scenes and the camera-work is really well done. We saw a showdown and collision of worlds we have waited long to see. The battle scene between Daenery's and the Dothraki vs the Lannister forces is arguably one of the best moments in this series. Seeing a dragon wipe out Lannister forces in Westoros was truly satisfying. Like many fans I watched the final moments in awe as I shuddered at who would die. This show has bluntly wiped out big characters in an instant. When we saw Jaimie go for Daenerys it looked like a major character would die but the show beautifully gave us a stalemate with both surviving. This episode got everything right from a great opening, dialogues, reunions at Winterfell to an epic battle. Jaimie's expression as he sunk into the Ocean was the same expression I had as I tried to fathom what just happened in the last 10 minutes.

Thank you is what I want to say for a breathtaking episode. I can only wait in great anticipation for the next episode.
