'Game of Thrones' Recap: The Great Battle of Blackwater

If you want to know what the best episode of Game of Thrones is, this is it. "Blackwater" is the drama's crowning achievement, an episode so singularly focused and brilliantly directed that it puts most movies to shame. There are no sideplots with Daenerys Targaryan or Jon Snow or Robb Stark or Theon Greyjoy. From start to finish, "Blackwater" is about Stannis Baratheon's invasion of King's Landing, and the winner is a bit of a surprise twist.
