"I think my eyes are getting better. Instead of a big dark blur, I see a big light blur," said Han Solo as in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi, and nothing better can explain the third episode of Game of Thrones season 8, titled The Long Night.

Right from the beginning, the show-runners claimed that the hit drama series will grow darker in the upcoming seasons, and they did it. Well, quite literally. The Battle of Winterfell was so dark that viewers failed to figure out who kills who. It was indeed an epic war sequence, only if one could see what was actually happening there.

Soon after the HBO released the latest episode of Game of Thrones, Twitter freaked out flooding the micro-blogging site asking "How do you switch this show from night mode."

While one of them wrote, "The lighting budget for this episode was 8 candles. But on the bright side I found my Tv’s brightness setting." others posted pictures of a blank black screen captioning it as, "What I'm seeing on tonight's episode."

Meanwhile, the Battle of Winterfell does not stick to killing upon killing, rather, it seems even more intense, entwining the flavours of suspense, horror, drama and bits of hope. Sapochnik pulls it off brilliantly, considering there are too many elements to be handled, multiple characters to be juggled and hundreds of fighters to be directed.

The battle is survival horror, shown from the perspective of every person present in Winterfell. It is a dramatic, visually stunning and imaginatively directed episode to say the least.
