Everything feels thrillingly unsettled, as if the rules are constantly changing and the biggest prize may actually be a booby trap.
So there you have it -- sex, blood, infanticide, incest, rebellion, poison and great big wolves. Man, I missed this show, didn't you?
This season seems more willing to take liberties with the order of events in the narrative than season 1.
All in all, this 'The North Remembers' serves as both a great premiere episode, and a fantastic teaser for what is to come the rest of the season.
"The North Remembers" sets the tone for season two of Game of Thrones - less sex, more violence. And a million dizzying subplots
I guess this is me being a spoiled brat more than anything else, but I was certainly ready for more when the final credits came up.
It was once again a beautifully acted and directed episode, providing all of the darkness and delightful intrigue that we've come to love about the show.
Everything about this episode feels bigger, better and more sure-footed than last season.
All in all, a very solid start for season two. Naturally, it couldn't be full-on amazing, as everything just became very cloudy,... but the foundation is laid for another outstanding season.
Joffreyʼs actor is amazing. This kid has got subtle malice with a sprinkling of smarm and the twinkle of becoming unhinged in his teenage eye.
All in all this was a pretty awesome way to start the season and shed any doubts about the series being great without Ned Stark.
