"Now that is how you end a season of Game of Thrones!
Season 5 has been all about the show’s unprecedented transition from a series concerned with adapting Martin’s work to a series laying the groundwork for its own ambitions. With Mother’s Mercy, the show completed this transformation in exciting form. It was the strongest episode of the season and one that leaves the show in a place where it has well and truly eclipsed its source material." -Fergus Halliday (Resident Entertainment)
