- Season 5. Chapter 10 - Mercy
Although the ninth chapter had one of the most shocking moments of the season, with the shocking sacrifice in the fire of the daughter of Stannis, for the impact that had the end of season we are left with this episode in which they spend a lot of things : from the death of Stannis to the flight of Sansa and Theon, the poisoning of Myrcella (daughter of Cersei and Jaime) or the spectacular walk of the shame of Cersei.

The seventh season has been the shortest so far, with only seven episodes, but they gave a lot of themselves, with the action accelerated by the proximity of the end.

Death and destruction is already here.
