Can I rate this a 20?
19 May 2019 | by parinishthaSee all my reviews

Seriously a 10 is not enough for this episode. Chills through and through. Every other scene. There is no side I support. There are no clear lines drawn out about the hero side and the villain side, you are immersed in the battle and the characters on both sides. The men fighting and the women grouped together by Cersei create some spine chilling moments. Some moments stood out less obvious than others. The scene where Sansa picks up the doll Ned gave her. Oh and the last shot with Cersei telling Tommen the story of a lion cub while sitting on the iron throne and ready to poison him.
