Critic reviews for Oathbreaker

This show really has found itself with its own Meereenese Knot problem. Usually the first few episodes of a season fall victim to this, but we're running out of real estate to tell this story.

May 8, 2016 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

Fears of anti-climax proved largely unfounded as show-runners David Benioff and DB Weiss delivered a generally satisfying dispatch.

How can we believe in the stakes of anything or anyone when death and maiming won't stop a Stark?

May 11, 2016 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

With "Oathbreaker," the show slouched ever so slowly toward confirming a theory that might as well be canon for many fans at this point.

May 9, 2016 | Full Review…

It was simply frustrating to watch inconsequential scenes take up precious minutes of your run-time, especially at a juncture when the series is just seasons away from wrapping itself up and you are nowhere close to getting your characters in line.

Ugh, this episode was incredibly uneven.
