Though "Mockingbird" mostly sets the table for future events, it remains chock-full of action, suspense, surprise, and raw human emotion.
"Mockingbird" manages to keep the larger story moving ever forward and provide for some terrific character moments. And that ending, oh, that ending...
This was a logistical bridge episode, positioning for the future but with an unusual glimpse of various characters' vulnerabilities.
Did Littlefinger have a stroke? No, though it might seem that way, since the actor, Aidan Gillen, has begun talking exclusively out of the right side of his mouth.
Last week's episode of Game of Thrones highlighted the elusiveness of justice in the Seven Kingdoms. This week's episode, served as an answer to that question. Yes, there can be justice, but it's subjective and handed down only by the strong.
A good episode by this season's lofty standards, I'd say, if not quite a great one.
It wasn't that it was a bad hour -- far from it. But it was, save for one dramatic drop at the end, a traditional filler episode.
Mockingbird continues the recent trend of shocking deaths and excellent performances by Peter Dinklage as Tyrion.
This week the spotlight turns to another character [Jamie] that is proving equally challenging not to love, albeit for far different reasons.
[It's] a buildup episode.
This was not a great episode, but like even the weakest of Game Of Thrones episodes, it was peppered with great moments.
It's simply an episode that bounces around two continents, offering strong scenes in each place - sometimes even finding new depth and shading in previously iffy characters.
While this wasn't the totally kick-ass episode I was anticipating in my previous review, "Mockingbird" was still full of death, nudity and (lack of) justice, everything that a Game of Thrones episode should be.
