    Game of Thrones episode 9 OF COURSE!!!!!! Everyone knows episode 9 is always the best!

    • Ron says:

      Wellllll, in terms of everything but outcome. The red wedding was episode 9, and that wasn’t the “best” outcome–though it did provide a nice plot device…

      • Jose says:

        Well episode 9 always shocks us to the core …. Ned’s execution , joffrey surviving with his crown from Blackwater, The Red Wedding…….its gonna be the best episode of the season at least right?

        • Ron says:

          Oh, no doubt. I always love the emotional roller coasters of the 9th episodes, but I tend to be sad as a final emotion by episode’s end. For example: sad = when Ned was beheaded, sad = when Joffrey survived, sad = when the Starks were, well, you know. But no doubt will I be on the edge of my seat the entire episode.
