Similar to last season's ninth episode "Balon", where Lord Eddard Stark gets his head lopped off (spoiler alert?), the ninth episode of this season titled "Blackwater" is one that leaves pretty much everyone floored. The wildfire explosion has to rank up there as one of the top "swag" moments of the show, right there with Daenerys' dragons first appearing, Viserys getting his golden crown, and the just mentioned beheading of Ned. In other words: It. Was. AWESOME!
It's been a long time coming, but overall we feel HBO did a solid job at adapting the Battle of The Blackwater for television. Of course we also have a few gripes, so lets get into things.
