The entire season was amazing thats why i picked the books i knew nothing of this series before the show. But now that have read all the books i have to go with the fist episode. I mean how can you not love seeing the entire stark family together for the last. Winterfell full of Starks, Lannisters, King Robert and Benjen as a true retrospective i love the first episode everyone being together in one place before their journeys begin is amazing.
To be totally I honest I felt the first episode was the weakest one, it only ended well. I watched it this week with my partner who has never read the books and he sort of rolled his eyes as if to say "what's the big deal?"
We watched the next 3 episodes back to back and even though we'd stayed up late and had work in the morning he was giving me the "come on, just one more" speech.
We haven't watched episode 10 yet but after Baelor he was shocked and apalled at Ned's death I gave him no hints, no warnings - it was beautiful to hear him rage about Joffrey the way I did all those years ago when my dad recommended the first book.
