The penultimate episode of season two was one of the best episodes of the season. The entire episode is dedicated to the ultimate Battle of the Blackwater. The battle is fought between the Lannister army, led by the acting Hand Tyrion Lannister, and the fleet of Stannis Baratheon. The battle received many dramatic battle sequences and a great speech from half-man Tyrion Lannister. This episode will redeem Tyrion as a great warrior and a powerful leader.

5. The Mountain and the Viper
The episode runs with all the parallel plots; Theon helps Ramsay take over Moat Cailin; the wildlings attack the city. But the best part of the episode is the epic battle between Oberyn Martell and Ser Gregor Clegane. Oberyn Martell fights on behalf of Tyrion Lannister, as he has chosen “trial by combat”.

4. The Laws of Gods and Men
One of the best trial scenes we have ever seen on television. When Tyrion Lannister arrives for his trial, he has not only stunned the entire courtroom, but also a million viewers. The episodes of Tyrion’s trial had ups and downs and became surprisingly epic and unpredictable when Stannis Baratheon made a deal with Iron Bank of Bravos. The episode is important to the plot, and it did justice to the entire season, and later this episode will prove to be a great foundation. On the other side of the strait, Daenerys struggles with her dragons as they become large and untameable.
