Critic Reviews for Oathbreaker

It's a strategy - and "Thrones" characters have certainly done stupider things to end up in Ramsay's grasp.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

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…

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.

[T]his hour carefully weaves its themes together through all of its stories, creating one of the most unified, enjoyable journeys around the world of Westeros we've had in some time.

Feb 11, 2020 | Rating: 4.5/5 | Full Review…

I would love to see Bran reunited with at least one of his siblings. In the meantime, we're going to have to wait and see the rest of that Tower of Joy flashback.

Apr 5, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

You'll have to wait longer to see whether the show explores that popular and still unproven lineage of Jon Snow's parentage, but "Oathbreaker" opens the door to it by showing the famed battle at the Tower of Joy.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

That is narrative progress. Daenerys arguing in the dirt for half a season is not.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, that was also one of the more interesting nuggets in an episode that was a bit of a bore, especially after last week's surge of deaths and other happenings.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

It's as if the show were rebelling against the stately pace of its source material; it's as if the show itself was angry, and has decided to vent its anger by running full tilt toward its endgame. By the gods is it entertaining to watch.

[This episode] was one of revelations.

Jun 26, 2018 | Full Review…

This week's episode had LOTS of talking, and no nudity whatsoever. But there was a sword fight with stabbings and blood spray. That was fun. But, to be honest, it was a little boring.
