Critic reviews for The Bear and the Maiden Fair

Though not filled with fireworks (other than a super sweet bear fight), it nonetheless accomplishes what it sets out to do and gets the majority of the throat clearing out of the way for the season's final three episodes.

Relationships certainly took center stage this week. Those like Tyrion and Sansa's, while arranged, might be the most honest of all as there seemed to be many a subversive plot brewing.

The Kingslayer has gone from child assaulting incesterer to one of the noblest people on television.

That was a boring, frustrating episode, probably the worst of the season.

It's another busy episode, but there's enough going on in most of the narratives that the audience has a better grasp of what's at stake for each character - though Theon's continued torment at the hands of his unnamed assailant is feeling rather tedious.

"Goodbye, Ser Jaime." I didn't expect to be moved to tears by Game of Thrones last night any more than Jaime Lannister himself did, I don't think.
