One of the things that George R.R. Martin and the writing crew at HBO do extremely well are short, deliberative scenes that illuminate and deepen specific characters, their relationships and their choices so very, very deftly. This season has a number of scenes that have been superbly illustrative of this fact and I'm not referring to the jarring horror of the Red Wedding. Here are a few of the scenes that make Game of Throne one of the very best shows to grace our screens in a very long time...starting with my personal favorite moment from Season 3.
Tyrion takes a seat
Dinner with Bolton
Jamie & Brianne and the Kingslayer's bathtime
Accounting with Oleanna
Meeting new people....
and killing them...
and lastly, more of the Tyrion and Bronn banter.
