Critic Reviews for Walk of Punishment

We're keeping our fingers crossed that poor Pod never gets his source of power chopped off.

David Benioff and D.B. Weiss come roaring back with a sharp, streamlined focus, and put together one of the best hours of television you're ever likely to see.

She could have let them in on her plan, or she could kill two birds with one stone: make the guy believe she was serious about her offer, and remind her boundary-crossing buddies just who the Motherf--ing Mother of the Motherf--ing Dragons is.

This episode finally hits the gas on this season, and off we go. Thankfully, we get a bit of humor and levity to offset the gore and blood, which always helps.

This was Game of Thrones as I like it best: plot-heavy but light on its feet, dancing confidently across the map to a beat only its makers are able to hear.

Hands down, the best episode so far this season. Or should I say hand down?

[I]t still kind of feels like the show's slowly pushing to get the ball rolling, stuck in a lot of expository mud and long distance traveling to get there.

Walk Of Punishment, takes us on a journey around the world to witness where the paths of some of the players have brought them, a paths that led to glory, to joy, to sadness, and to suffering.

All things considered, "Walk of Punishment" was some excellent television. Keep it coming, guys.

Though it€™s interesting to see the competition for power, which of course has been present since Season 1, the scene did little for the progression of the story and by the end just felt like a complete waste of time.

So far, Benioff and Weiss have done an excellent job in recreating the sense of oh crap something horrible is going to happen soon! that permeated the early chapters of the book.

Game of Thrones needs to give us a home team... This show has stopped moving, and has begun treading water, mistaking the splashes of water from its flailing arms for the same kind of waves made by the death of its only likable character.
