Superbly written and directed, "What is Dead May Never Die" evokes a range of emotions as uneasy alliances are forged, past traumas are explored, and the stakes grow ever higher.
This episode did a fine job of introducing her character [Brienne] without making her the entire focus.
Maybe the most fascinating alliance introduced in the episode, though, is the pairing of Sansa and Shae.
As I'm yelling at the screen, Theon takes in that his Dad plans to lay waste to the place he's called home for a decade, and attack the man he's called brother. He doesn't bat an eyelash.
Each story remains distinct, and the show rarely flags. Three episodes in, it seems that the "difficult second season" is being skillfully navigated.
[The] writing and acting [is] wickedly tight and delightful.
"What Is Dead May Never Die," the third episode of this highly enjoyable second season of Game of Thrones. Spanning the length of an already quite lengthy continent, it was a compelling and rich hour.
The storylines were all engaging and it was very nice to see things moving forward.
The individual stories have more impact, when we're not bouncing around quite as much.
There were multiple transitions this week that were impressive, either due to their wit or due to the way they were executed.
Another strong example of the fine balance of "Game of Thrones," she joins the cadre of empowered women ruthlessly vying for power, though her techniques are atypical.
[It's] an intriguing examination of the troubles plagued upon the children.
We're starting to see the shape that this season is going to take. The quest for power is a theme made very prevalent this week and everyone seems to want it.
