Critic Reviews for Mhysa

As directed by David Nutter, this episode addresses most of our characters and brings them to a place of certainty, at least, until the next season.

By and large this was an episode of reunions and transformations.

This Thrones finale was in full Thrones finale form, hopscotching frantically across plotlines to tie a cliffhanger-y bow on each of them.

Small though he may be, Tyrion Lannister is a monstrously huge talent, and I, for one, can't wait to see what he does next.

"Mhysa," lets us lick our wounds and offers some uplifting moments to temper all that violence and nihilism (don't worry, there's still plenty of violence and nihilism too).

Happily, the broad and bracing "Mhysa" helped provide an answer. The motivation for Westerosi, high and lowborn alike, is the same thing that fuels big dreams and bigger alcohol consumption in our own realm: family.

It's not as cohesive or satisfying as the ends of the first two seasons... but it's still just as entertaining, brutal, ambitious, and grandiose as ever - and isn't that why we tune in, in the first place?

No one expected the Season 3 finale to top "The Rains of Castamere," right? "Mhysa" opened up a lot of good possibilities for Game of Thrones Season 4.

Moving forward, it seems that Winter isn't just coming, it's here. Hodor.

So... this episode was kind of anticlimactic, no? It felt more like a mid-season episode than a finale. But there were some seriously amazing scenes.

"Mhysa" had plenty of both, but also felt excellent by the show's typical standards, picking up where "The Rains of Castamere" left off and exploring the Red Wedding's implications, both personal and political.

It was quite an episode, too, though not as big and dramatic as its predecessor.
