    4. End of Hardhome, specifically the silent scene of NK raising his arms and Jon’s boat drifting away

    I like this list except for number 10. I’d probably replace it with Ramsey being eaten by his dogs.

    1. Cersei blowing up the Sept sequence
    2. Oberyn's speech telling Tyrion he'd be his champion
    3. The Red Wedding
    4. Jaime and Brienne at the bathhouse
    5. Viper vs Mountain
    6. The Field of Fire
    7. Dany buys the Unsullied and roasts Kraznys mo Nakloz
    8. Joffrey's death

    For me it was the perfect hour of TV.

    The dialogue, acting, set pieces, action moments, pacing; all of it was flawless to me.

    Also Kings landing is my favorite setting by far in seasons 1-4, so a whole episode there is more enjoyable imo than other huge battles like watchers on the wall

    I loved Watchers on the Wall becuase of the way they weaved a bunch of mini stories together.

    I dont think it gets enough appreciation compared to Bastards or Hardhome.

    It's the perfect payoff to everything Jon had been doing since season 2

    Fuck, this is the one I probably missed more than any other. Will likely revise to slot this in at #7 and move everything else down

    Scene will likely grow in adoration over time now that we know Jon’s arc

    This is my favorite. Reading the book I was damn near in tears over Daenerys selling one of the dragons, which immediately turned into a Fuck Yeah moment

    Also this one because of the shock value:

    Tywin is without a doubt my favorite character. The thing is, I honestly don't know if it's the character, or if it's Charles Dance, himself. He DOMINATED every single scene he was in
