Perhaps my personal favourite season of the lot. Brilliant!
on 11 August 2016
This another great Season and after the pain the long suffering And nearly depleted Stark family suffered at the Red Wedding, it's good to see a few of their enemies get their just desserts (not naming names).
The battle at Castle Black is epic in every sense of the word, coupled with the usual political manoeuvres and other unexpected arcs and you have one hell of a good series. But what makes this Season truly great is sheer number of memorable moments and seeming culmination of various threads. Highlights include (of course) the whole of Episode 9 dedicated to the Battle of Castle Black, The Hound v Brienne, The Mountain v Oberyn Martell and of course, Tyrion's epic trial speech.
One of my personal favourite stories is the Hound and Arya's journey. Two very likeable but completely different characters, not massively important or related to the main story (so far) but still very enjoyable.
As far as the extras go, there is a fantastic recap of season 3 that rounds up the loose ends nicely and even explains other, less obvious repercussions you might have missed. There is also an interesting explanation on the b*stards of Westeros
