A Man Without Honor was another excellent episode, a dialogue-heavy series of scenes that once again showed why this show is one of the best on television when it comes to drama and characters that you will inevitably love.

Despite what I feel was a certain amount of padding, there was a lot to like about this episode.

Overall, I enjoyed the episode as long as I don't obsess over the book too much. It's a wonderful TV series, but it's wavering a teensy bit on the adaptation.

[It] was terrific: intelligent, moving, neatly plotted.

Nearly every storyline in "A Man Without Honor"-maybe the season's most thrilling and horrifying Game of Thrones episode yet-involved prisoners or captives and their imprisoners.

A Man Without Honor felt much more organic with all its seeds long planted and set a new standard for excellence in the second season and entire series.

Even though this episode lacked action and excitement in certain ways, it is, thus far, my favorite episode of the series. Wonderful scenes with wonderful actors doing what they do best.

I would not have expected to say that arguably the show's best episode would have only one major event combined with a series of dialogues.

The show goes on to illustrate how, in their own unique way, the title of 'A Man Without Honor' can and does apply to most men in the series.

Characters who were once at the center (Ned, Jaime) have been moved aside, while other characters who were once on the margins (Theon, Stannis) are now driving much of the action.

Game of Thrones is a show that relies heavily on its writing and actors. This week, penned by David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, was beautifully sharp on the dialogue front.

Plotting was put on the back burner but for real effect this week, the character's loyalties are ever changing and it is beginning to get serious.

A fairly transitional episode for Game of Thrones, obviously meant to gear us up for the actual coming battles.

Even with this focus on the family, "A Man Without Honor" was a strange and digressive episode of Game of Thrones. It featured as many wonderful character... But the pacing felt stiff and uncomfortable.

Whoa. Did Theon Greyjoy really just kill Bran and Rickon Stark?! Moreover: Why is this show so insanely cruel to its only honorable family?

I enjoy these scenes between Arya and Papa L. -- probably not least for frisson of fear that runs through them.

This was one of those episodes the book adherents will probably love. I certainly did. I will be curious to see how much the general audience enjoyed it.

We're treated to another excellent scene between Tywin and Arya. All those who mourn changes from George R.R. Martin's novels, I can't imagine there's many of you who don't love this pairing.

I thoroughly enjoyed this episode, quite possibly because Littlefinger didn't randomly pop up to dispense honeyed advice at any point. I still miss Varys, however. Even a little scene of him whispering cryptically would bring me some cheer.

Power and import change rapidly in this world, and on this show, and while that can be exciting to watch... it also means that more and more people will wind up in a position other than the one they're best-suited to fill.
