According to cinematographer Robert McLachlan this was the most expensive single episode of television ever made. Some media accounts identified the previous season's Game of Thrones: Battle of the Bastards (2016) the the previous holder of this distinction. See more »

Best Of The Season
5 August 2017 | by bijanadhikariSee all my reviews

All has been said about how GOT has been losing its quality since season 4 and I kinda agree to some extent but you also have to keep in mind that the show is about to come to an end and they have to rush certain things. And as long as they keep pulling up episodes like this I have no problem how the writer deal with things.

The spoils of War is certainly one of the best episodes this series has put up. Certainly topped Hardhome and is on par with Battle of the bastards and Winds Of Winter(tho I think The children and Rains Of Castamere are both on another level). What this episode does is it puts war in the center with political aspects on the background in a classic game of thrones way. And with one of the best CGI and action sequence the creator pull off yet another masterpiece which shall make what's to come more interesting and nail biting.
