Critic reviews for Fire and Blood

Impressively, the addictive appeal of the entire first season of Game of Thrones can be summed up with one titillating and 100-percent true statement: It ended with well-wrought CGI dragon babies crawling across the torso of a beautiful, naked woman.

Holy naked girl with dragons, Batman, was that a finale or what?

Aside from some minor complaints, the finale was still extremely satisfying.

The finale ramped up the stakes for each of the characters we've grown to love (and love to hate) while still setting up for season two without appearing to be fixated on setting up the second season.

Tonight's episode was evidence that there's still plenty of story to play out and a lot of unfinished business to attend to.

I loved that the Commander of the Night's Watch wants Jon Snow and Ghost to ride with the men north of the wall. He knows what a value Ghost has become and it can't help but make me smile.
