Episode 9 was literally the best hour of T.V. I have ever watched. The acting was superb and the special effects were brilliantly done. I have honestly never been so emotionally attached to a T.V. program as I was watching this episode. It was almost like watching a playoff game.
I was worried about this episode because there was so much that could have gone wrong in the interpretation of the Battle of the Blackwater. But right away I saw that George RR Martin wrote the episode so I knew he would do it justice. I had previously thought that he was writing episode 7, but I couldn't be more happy that he wrote episode 9.
I'm thinking about watching the episode for the 4th time right now, but I think its a good idea to take a break .
