How do you follow one of the strongest episodes of an already very strong show? How to follow one of the finest group acting efforts the show has yet produced, including amazing turns from actors and characters not noted particularly for their thespian talents? And how do you follow up the single best one-on-one duel in a series full of amazing and well-choreographed fights? Simple. You stage the biggest battle the series has yet seen, and build it over the course of an entire hour, with no breaks for other, slower storylines. You raise the stakes. And you kill someone well-liked – even loved – by fans of the show. Click through after the break to get my take on the Battle of Castle Black.

How quickly this season is going by. This coming week brings us the penultimate episode of Season 4 of Game of Thrones, and soon we’ll be facing the long, hot, then kinda cool, then downright cold, then almost kind of warm again, wait until the next season begins. The good news is that we do have two more episodes to enjoy before the wait, and if this season runs out like each of the previous three, the true climax of the season should be this Sunday. In Season 1, we had a rather unexpected execution; in Season 2, the Battle of the Blackwater; and in Season 3, the infamous Red Wedding. So what will Season 4’s ninth episode bring us? How can Benioff and Weiss follow last week’s absolutely stellar outing? Click through to get my take on where we’re going.
