Far and away, one of the greatest episodes of TV
19 June 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I just can't describe this. It was hyped up. The fight was coming. The fight that I just witnessed was the single most intense hour of television I have ever seen. I normally don't write reviews but this one needed it. I was wondering how it would play out, but this...I can't describe it. There were moments throughout the season, the subtle build-ups, the exposition, the intensity, that led me to believe this season would not disappoint. I did not expect it to culminate the way it did. I did not expect the production, the battle itself, everything came together as perfect as anything I've ever seen. I'm not one to get easily influenced physically by movies or TV, but my adrenaline was rushing through the entire episode. Game of Thrones topped everything they have ever done and I can't wait to see the consequences and results of the events in this episode.
