The secret origin of Varys, delivered in riveting fashion by Conleth Hill, serves neatly as a metaphor for both "And Now His Watch Is Ended" and for "Game of Thrones" as a whole.

[It] was another tale of consequences, a densely plotted, labyrinthine piece of television that coupled complex machinations with wicked retributions.

With all of the possibilites that could take place, the season is shaping up to be an exciting one, even though it's taken a few episodes to really get moving.

Still, it should at least be good for a couple of "hand of the king" jokes from the Imp.

Watching Dracarys cook him, while Daenerys won an army of 8,000 through communion rather than market exchange, was a spectacular moment of catharsis.

So let's all cheer for Dany, because if a character can keep this season of Game of Thrones afloat, it will be her.

The scenes between Jaime and Brienne also feel right. Good and strong and solid like they were in the book, with a weird and unexpected bond forming between the two.

It may just be the high from seeing two excellent episodes in a row, but I think I'm ready to sign and wax-stamp the official document declaring Game of Thrones' third season the best of the series so far, a mere four episodes in.

Emilia Clarke has been one of the best things about Game of Thrones from the start, and she was in finest form in And Now His Watch Is Ended.

Another really superb episode this season, even though I still think that eleven stories are too many for one hour.

Last night's episode was the best of the season so far by a wide margin. It might even count among one of my favorites in the entire show.

It's a masterful introduction that's totally original to the show, demonstrating once again that Benioff and Weiss know what they're doing.

This is not only the best episode thus far this year, it is easily one of the best episodes the series has ever had.

Hear that? It's the sound of millions of Game of Thrones fans geeking out. Tonight's episode "And Now His Watch Is Ended" concluded with the most exciting scene in the show's history.

"Will you fight for me? As free men?" she asks. You betcha! As the scene ends, Daenerys and her fearsome army depart Astapor with three dragons flying high. Never mess with the mother of dragons!

There are episodes of Game Of Thrones where what I most want is to make my review a long string of all-caps gibberish with exclamation points strewn throughout... and YOU NEED TO SEE THIS, YOU GUYS, OH MY GOD!

"And Now His Watch is Ended" managed to do a lot more than merely spend time with these residents of Westeros and beyond. It delivered action after action after unbelievably cool and surprising action.

A fantastic episode, and one that definitely portends bigger things to come.

Talk about captive audience: In this good but often hard-to-watch episode, it was almost too easy to relate to the many literally and figuratively shackled characters.
