An exquisitely crafted episode, "The Door" culminates in a gut-wrenching revelation that makes the loss of a beloved character all the more poignant.
This season of Game of Thrones is moving at a crazy fast clip, and we're all in mourning right now. But in the bigger picture, we got what might be the biggest reveal we've ever seen on the show.
Winter is coming and this week it came for Bran.
For a show that kills off characters left and right, this one hurts the most.
Tonight's aptly- (and poignantly-) titled fifth episode, in which we see the origin story of the White Walkers, and how the good-natured Winterfell stableboy Wylis became Hodor. It is brilliant and at the same time so simple - and so heartbreaking.
All this stitching together of past and present resulted in an unusually satisfying episode, one that offered crucial context and invited viewers to game out the story's future.
I love it whenever the show shifts its attention from the usual, highly concentrated loci of power to the "regular folks" that populate the edges of Game of Thrones's world.
[A]n hour that continues to bravely push Game of Thrones forward into unseen territory, in what's shaping up to be a magnificent season.
I think there's a good chance that when the credits rolled on last night's episode, "The Door," ol' George stroked his beard and said, "Damn, I wish I'd thought of that."
The heartbreaking, yet satisfying information drop made for the best episode of the season so far.
Hodor, we hardly knew you.
Hodor's sacrifice is a legitimately great moment, a heroic act from the most unlikely of people.
At this point, there have just been too many episodes to say "The Door" is the best hour Game of Thrones has ever produced. But it's got to be in the top five, and certainly the best of this season so far.
