Critic reviews for Walk of Punishment

His screams to close the episode end up making for one of the best cut-to-credits in recent memory, particularly when accompanied by the raucous rendition of "The Bear And The Maiden Fair" by The Hold Steady.

Most of us love Game of Thrones for the blood and the action (and the occasional/very frequent nudity), but sometimes a good cry over family members lost - or perceived to be lost - is needed to remind us that a lot more is at stake than power.

It's easy to look over all of the people struggling for the right to rule over the worst place ever, but Emilia Clarke is incredibly effective at pulling you into her Khalassar.

Hands down, the best episode so far this season. Or should I say hand down?

Positions are handed down, haggled for or simply snatched up in another crowded, but still very entertaining episode.

Even though the emotions were so all over the place you could have used an opening-credits-style map to sort them all, I wouldn't call it inconsistency. I'd call it range.
