Critic reviews for The Laws of Gods and Men

Not only did Peter Dinklage win another Emmy with that scene [his speech]...but it's a glorious, truly awesome (in the sense of inspiring awe) ending to the episode.

This week's episode of Game of Thrones, "Laws of Gods and Men" showed us that in Westeros, the laws of gods and men are one in the same, and that justice, fairness and virtue are all fickle.

Varys is more like the Lorax, but instead of speaking for the trees, he speaks for the realm. .

This episode features the most heartbreaking betrayal yet. Plus, Peter Dinklage giving a stirring performance.

The reason the show triumphs as a series and not just as spectacle is because showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss never lose sight of the fact that it takes a lot of extremely small moving parts to add up to something so impressive.

I could have sworn I heard a duh-dun-DUN. But prior to that, Peter Dinklage's full-body performance delivered just the right amount of drama.
