Critic reviews for Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken

It's angering and confusing why the series has chosen to add yet another rape of a major character into the show that does not exist in the books.

Snatches of other plots were mostly just distractions from the horror and raw emotion of the episode's final act.

It was easily the weakest episode of what had been a rather magnificent season, and an unfortunate reminder that sometimes the only way to see the indescribable view from the top of the Wall is to take a rickety elevator.

I've rarely, if ever, felt less enthusiastic about the show than I did tonight, when the screen faded to black to the sound of Sansa's groans.

Now you finally see the burden of womanhood and how it pertains to legacy.

It was a dark, evil, nasty way to end the episode, but that doesn't mean "Unbowed" was without its charm.
