This episode finally hits the gas on this season, and off we go. Thankfully, we get a bit of humor and levity to offset the gore and blood, which always helps.

This was Game of Thrones as I like it best: plot-heavy but light on its feet, dancing confidently across the map to a beat only its makers are able to hear.

Hands down, the best episode so far this season. Or should I say hand down?
