Critic reviews for Blood of My Blood

It was a novelty to (for once) sit through an hour of Game of Thrones and not be reducing to a quivering heap of emotional jelly by the end. Steady as she goes -- and on to more searing developments in the weeks ahead.

The show is finally starting to pull the far-flung threads of the story together. Tons of old characters we haven't seen in a while are now back in play.

"Blood of My Blood," the sixth episode of the sixth season of Game of Thrones lacked much of the forward momentum...but Bran's intense final download of Westerosi history as he's being hauled through the snow... opened up new insights into the future.

In all, I thought this was the third episode in a row that felt as though it was really driving the plot forward in a satisfying way.

If chaos is indeed a ladder, it's been nice to see the show continuing with its steep ascent.

Well, Throners, we're living in a post-Hodor world and we'll never look at doorstops or elevators without wistfully thinking of our strong and steadfast buddy.
