[A] taut, terrific episode The Prince of Winterfell,... nearly every player ended up in a trap, forced to play it as it lies.
It felt very much like an ultra-penultimate episode of a season, setting up story lines for the final two.
Despite a disappointing lack of events and warping of Arya's story, there was still a lot to like about The Prince Of Winterfell.
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.
This week's episode of Game of Thrones was a builder.
For me, the finest moment of the episode came early, and it belonged to Gemma Whelan's Yara Greyjoy.
This is a good Tyrion episode, with Dinklage making the most of his juicy lines.
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.
The game is being played so slowly and carefully this year, and also that it involves so many players.
I thought this week's episode was great. I'm one of those people who enjoys the build up almost as much, if not more, than the big fight.
Game of Thrones can often make it seem like more is happening than it really is, so while "The Prince of Winterfell" isn't the most eventful episode, its still got loads of good character beats, and plenty to get us excited for the rest of the season.
The news that the Stark children are alive was the biggest piece of plot development that happened... Other than that... it served better as a set-up to the show's climax in the next weeks, rather than a stand-alone episode.
This episode had peaks and valleys to be sure, but for the most part it was slow, delicious, and calm-at least on the surface.
An occasionally slow-moving but fascinating episode, which felt like the calm before Stannis arrives to storm King's Landing.
It's entirely possible that the events coming up in the next two weeks... will make much of this piece-moving seem worth it, in the same way that certain "slow" episodes of "The Wire" would always prove to be essential in hindsight.
Since we're in the closing act of the season and shit is likely about to get real, an episode that's about getting characters in position is forgivable.
It's a strong episode for Tyrion overall, as our acting Hand attempts to get the city ready for siege warfare by talking things out with Bronn-who's little help-attempting to persuade Cersei that her son needs to lead his men into battle.
