I'm so glad we finally got Jon's resurrection out of the way and can finally dispense with all the PR kabuki. Even with gaining one on the table, this episode was particularly bloodthirsty.

My goodness. The moment Ghost woke up from his Direwolf snooze to realize his master was waking up should sweep the entire Emmy ceremony.

Snow's rebirth, although expected, was a rousing moment. The mystery now becomes what kind of person will the revived Snow be.

I liked the way Davos served as the audience surrogate, prompting a deflated (or, re-inflated, if you prefer) Melisandre to rummage in her bag of ghastly tricks and pull out something that could bring Jon Snow back.

The appearances of both Ned and Lyanna in flashbacks fan flames of hope that this season the parentage of Jon Snow will be revealed. Lyanna is a key aspect of the popular fan theory R+L=J and this is the first time she's appeared in the series.

We know that in the world of Westeros, faith in other human beings in questionable, and faith in otherworldly beings is powerful, if unreliable.

"Home" is a much more consistent episode, with a sense of direction and progression the premiere severely lacked.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

We should stop to appreciate Theon Greyjoy for having what is likely the most complex arc on Game of Thrones.

Dec 10, 2019 | Full Review…

It was almost too much, and that was before another final moment that I will be circumspect and merely call "gratifying."

For now, it is enough to check in with Bran after so long away from this storyline and character.

Apr 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

And finally, our long national nightmare is over.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

So, it happened. The single most important thing on Game of Thrones happened. Tyrion let the dragons go. But they didn't leave the pyramid! Get off your lazy asses, dragons!
