S06E09 was a masterpiece. One of its striking moments was when time seemed to slow down for Jon Snow, as he braved the impending cavalry charge. It also had a surreal depiction of the atmosphere inside a battle. None of it was poetic or glorious, only pure chaos everywhere. Blood and mud raining on everyone, and a piled up sea of men, horses, and corpses alike that could drown a man alive. And most times, to survive, one could do nothing but to just keep swinging at anyone coming, even allies.
