The Prince of Winterfell



Critic Consensus: Though it's mostly concerned with moving its pieces into position before the finale, "The Prince of Winterfell" is a pleasantly subdued episode that makes the most of its character moments.

Critic Reviews for The Prince of Winterfell

Despite a disappointing lack of events and warping of Arya's story, there was still a lot to like about The Prince Of Winterfell.

This is a good Tyrion episode, with Dinklage making the most of his juicy lines.

I found "The Prince of Winterfell" to be quite a relief... It was a relatively quiet hour, at least by Game of Thrones standards... But unlike last week's equally placid installment, this one was gilded with numerous character moments.

I think they're clearly paving the way for a lot off poo to be thrown about -- and if we're lucky, some of it will hit Joffrey.

For me, the finest moment of the episode came early, and it belonged to Gemma Whelan's Yara Greyjoy.

It felt very much like an ultra-penultimate episode of a season, setting up story lines for the final two.

Tyrion, as a character, makes sparks with whomever is crossed with him, from Cersei and Joffrey to Bronn and (perhaps most fun of all) Varys.

This week was much better.

[A] taut, terrific episode The Prince of Winterfell,... nearly every player ended up in a trap, forced to play it as it lies.
