An episode that benefits from the intricate plotting of the previous three, "Sons of the Harpy" balances bloody action with illuminating character interplay.
Here's to "Sons of the Harpy," a truly outstanding episode of Game of Thrones that excelled mainly by celebrating the ordinary.
The final battle scene is worth the price of admission, and the Sand Snakes looks as lethal as advertised, but I'm getting awfully tired of Stannis & Co. trying to convince Jon to muster the Night's Watch to march on Winterfell.
George R.R. Martin has never shied away from killing off his characters, even characters that had become fan favorites. But his insistence that HBO was going to get even more brutal has begun to come true.
Now we're getting somewhere.
If these two are dead, it will be ultimately be meaningless, not heroic, which makes the glorious music that plays as they fight on all the more upsetting.
Keisha Castle-Hughes made a dramatic entrance into Game of Thrones, spearing a man through the head before the episode was out.
[A]nother terrific hour of what's been a wonderfully focused season to this point.
What this season lacks in balance (like the exquisite balance of last season), it makes up for in fortifying the remaining characters' motives.
"Sons of the Harpy" is full of characters seeing people and situations in a way very different from how the audience, or some of the other regulars, might.
I like the way we're getting to see a more admirable side of Stannis.
It was a decent enough episode, but still somewhat unfulfilling. Much of what happened was simply a reinforcement of what we already knew
Holy backstory, Batman.
