Critic reviews for Book of the Stranger

So maybe all the table-setting can get frustrating sometimes. But once the pieces are in position, wow does this show know how to use them.

In Sunday's episode "The Book of the Stranger," we see the degradations suffered by Sansa Stark, Margaery Tyrell and Daenerys Targaryen forged (by actual fire, in the latter's case) into a searing determination to claim their own agency.

Khaleesi is back. After being mocked and ridiculed by the Dothraki, Daenerys with the help of Jorah and Daario Naharis, launched an epic escape from Vaes Dothrak.

This episode felt as though it moved the plot forward more than the previous three combined-and it did so while engineering an uncommon number of individually excellent scenes.

It was a stunning and cathartic end to one of the strongest episodes of the season thus far as the stakes across Westeros were ratcheted up spectacularly.

"Book of the Stranger" went a long way toward amending some of the cruel (often gendered) injustices of the past without erasing them entirely; that alone made it the standout hour of the season.
