Despite how visceral and exciting it was to behold the battles of Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame, the best fight scene last weekend came from a surprising source: Barry.

In the episode 'Ronny/Lily,' which was written and directed by Bill Hader, we see the titular hitman character get into a mess of things when trying to convince a target to leave town and dodge death. It leads way to an episode-long fight scene for the ages with a stylistic approach and artistic camerawork on top of some very funny comedy.

Check out the video below to deep dive on how Hader and company crafted such a perfect episode and why it works as well as it does. Game of Thrones and Avengers: Endgame deliver but 'Ronny/Lily' is its own kind of masterpiece.
