The season four debut plodded. But it's important to see episode one for what it is. Before any major battle, the lines must be drawn, the strategies mapped out, the allegiances solidified, the soldiers placed in position.
It's impossible not to enjoy the return of a show that gives us the pleasure of the immensely entertaining Lannister clan. I could listen to those family members insult each other for hours.
Two Swords, though," gives the Lannisters a long, luxurious, period of celebration, and it is both wonderful and extremely unsettling.
It's an hour focused on small moments... but continues to push other stories forward in these moments.
It's funny and almost light compared to past seasons with occasional moments of melancholy to remind us of the heartbreak that came before.
This is one of those quieter Game of Thrones episodes where very little seems to happen, and yet a lot does.
Two Swords, was a great start to the series with some bad-ass action from a brand new character, and, of course, Arya.
GoT season 4 premiere never feels burdened by what it has to do, laying out the plot points of the season, due in part to all the small, character-driven moments that the show finds time to explore.
It was a solid episode that re-introduced us to our favorite - and not-so-favorite - characters, as well as brought us up to speed on a few new ones.
