The Battle of Mereen or Winterfell? I so want TWOW to come out before the next season of GoT.
“No. I am your end. Before your eyes I will put your seed to the knife. I will quarter your carcass and feed it to the dogs. Your bones I will grind to dust and cast to the winds. I will strike down those who speak your name or the name of your fathers, until ‘Yursalka’ becomes as meaningless as infant babble. I will blot you out, hunt down your every trace! The track of your life has come to me,

That was pretty good, wasn't it?

Since i had just finished reading the white luck warrior before seeing this episode, the chaotic and desperate battle really struck me as a good microcosm version of the desperate battles against the Sranc hordes in that book.

I thought it was a great episode.  Maybe the best of the entire series.  The cinematography and the battle choreography was amazing.  I'd compare it favorably with Braveheart and I'm astounded that this quality can be produced for television.  The budget must have been immense for this episode!

I thought we were going to lose Tormund :o.

The whole sequence with John was so well done - very reminiscent of Children of Men or the mid-season episode of True Detective, which have other noteworthy continuous shot sequences.

If you haven't seen it, here is a great behind-the-scenes that shows how they made the battle. A surprising amount of practical work (and horses) was involved:

The episode is called The Winds of Winter, which is the name of book six. Interesting.

9pm ET/MT, themerchant :).

Indeed. Sounds like we'll see some of what will likely be the climax in TWOW book.

EDIT: I'm an idiot, themerchant, 9pm ET/MT is right now.

So... yeah.

Wow. That was an intense episode of television.

Though, the conversation with Daavos and Mesiendre (sp?) was kind of jarring - in I know for a fact I missed many pieces of leadup in other arcs throughout the seasons, as I am apparently not an attention TV viewer, but why didn't Daavos freak out on Mesiendre at any point before now?

He may have had suspicions, but it wasn't until he found the burnt figurine that he had something resembling proof.

Ah, I see. I definitely need to rewatch the series.

I also think I should probably try ASOIAF again - sometime. Future Madness...

So rewatched the first episode and a half of S1...

Seeing Jaime reach out to shake John's hand at Winterfell was so fucking disorienting.
