Game Of Thrones' greatest episode yet walks away with our reward of April 2013's Best Release!
This month has once again been filled with brilliant releases- there have been four more dazzling blockbuster episodes of Doctor Who, the hot NeatherRealm Studios DC fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us and of course Iron Man 3 for starters. Yet this time around, the prize for April's Best Release had to go to the US drama that produced an absolute televisual masterpiece right at the last minute- I'm talking, of course, about Game Of Thrones' fourth episode of Season Three, And Now His Watch Is Ended.
I've already covered the episode's numerous strengths in my review, yet sufficed to say it's the innovative plot twists, the stunning direction, the star turns from so many great actors and actresses and so much more which makes this instalment such a sensational highlight in the show's history. It was hard to imagine how the production team could match and top Season Two's Blackwater, but I reckon that here they've done just that, setting up a new benchmark which future episodes will no doubt find staggeringly difficult to live up to.
Above all, it leaves us wondering that if this is the kind of quality we can expect not even halfway through this run, then what glorious place might we reach come the season finale next month? Indeed, that more than anything, is exhilarating food for thought...
