2013 Emmy Awards: Best Writing in a Drama Series

Will Win - Henry Bromell "Homeland - Q&A"

Could Win/Should Win - George Mastras "Breaking Bad - Dead Freight" or  David Benioff & D.B. Weiss "Game of Thrones - The Rains of Castmere"

Commentary - A tough race this year with five incredible episodes to choose from, I think it comes down to three. Breaking Bad couldn't make it into this category for years, and it finally gets in two! That being said, I'm not sure that it can pull off a win. Both are great episodes, and they could split votes. Of the two though, I think Dead Freight is its best option. The biggest episode of the year for any show nominated this year was the Red Wedding episode of Game of Thrones. While it was an incredible episode and uberly popular, I think that the taut and masterful work of Homeland's best episode of season 2, Q&A, will take the prize instead.
