As directed by David Nutter, this episode addresses most of our characters and brings them to a place of certainty, at least, until the next season.

By and large this was an episode of reunions and transformations.

"Mhysa" isn't my favorite episode of the show or the season, but it's probably the strongest season finale the series has logged yet.

This Thrones finale was in full Thrones finale form, hopscotching frantically across plotlines to tie a cliffhanger-y bow on each of them.

Game of Thrones' ability to wed image to emotion is where its greatness lies. To the extent that "Mhysa," its third season finale, contained greatness, that's where you'd find it.

Small though he may be, Tyrion Lannister is a monstrously huge talent, and I, for one, can't wait to see what he does next.

It was quite an episode, too, though not as big and dramatic as its predecessor.

It's been an exhilarating and emotional season, more spectacular that the previous two and yet retaining a tight narrative focus, the multiple plot strands cohering beautifully.

More than any other series on television, Game of Thrones understands that viewers long for simplicity.

I thought last night's "Mhysa" was a nice coda to the brutality of "The Rains of Castamere."

Mhysa was a fairly decent episode. It wasn't groundbreaking enough to completely catch us off guard - no main characters died and there were barely any surprises - and ultimately, it was rather predictable. I

No one expected the Season 3 finale to top "The Rains of Castamere," right? "Mhysa" opened up a lot of good possibilities for Game of Thrones Season 4.

Moving forward, it seems that Winter isn't just coming, it's here. Hodor.

So... this episode was kind of anticlimactic, no? It felt more like a mid-season episode than a finale. But there were some seriously amazing scenes.

"Mhysa" had plenty of both, but also felt excellent by the show's typical standards, picking up where "The Rains of Castamere" left off and exploring the Red Wedding's implications, both personal and political.

It is a repulsive moment where writers David Benioff and D.B. Weiss almost take a perverse pleasure in twisting the knife in the audience's still gaping wound.

"Mhysa" gave us a good course-heading for season 4, with some much-needed catharsis along the way.

In the end, the stage was set this week on "Mhysa" for a very exciting fourth season.

What the third season, particularly the latter half, has done is make all the power games played in Westeros seem small and petty. What it's done is give us a real glimpse at something bigger.

From top to bottom, opening sequence to end credits, season 3 of Game of Thrones has coaxed from 10 episodes a story arc that successfully demonstrated how much the idea of "the realm" means to the series' overall narrative.
