Anyone can be killed in the world of Game Of Thrones for any reason now, including magic. And while I may dislike the magical assassination that drives "The Ghost Of Harrenhal," this is a story about the effects of war and death.
In its second season, Game of Thrones has become so skilled at creating memorable characters that it finds itself in the curious position of not having enough time to service them.
I feel like this show has done such a good job courting folks who don't like fantasy that all those converts were a little shocked when it turned out they were watching...a fantasy show.
It was a classic mid-series episode... most of the action was expository rather than climactic.
I've been waiting all season to see Qarth on the inside... it's cool, enticing and menacing all the same.
The women of Westeros don't dominate every story this week, but they have enough strong moments.
Still a very strong episode with a great central theme, and particularly great for the different female characters of Westeros.
After a pretty disturbing hour last week, "Game of Thrones" is back in fine form this week with The Ghost Of Harrenhal.
A satisfactory episode if not entirely satisfying after the jaw dropper that preceded it, "The Ghost of Harrenhal" perhaps moved too fast and too much for its own good.
As every character is driven by his or her own motivations, the concern of what the endgame is becomes even more pressing as events compound and begin to spin out of control.
I love the way Game of Thrones is handling its large cast. They can't get everyone in every episode, but what they have been doing is finding a way to pair off characters who seem to complement one another.
