Game of Thrones co-creator says "there is not a weak episode” in Season 6

"We’re always reluctant to say it’s ‘the best season yet,’” says David Benioff, "because so much of that is in the eyes of the beholder. And (co-creator) Dan (Weiss) and I are so close to it that it’s impossible to be unbiased. But that’s my sense – watching them all together now, this is the best one we’ve done. It’s also the one I’m proudest of, because it was the hardest.”
