Critics Consensus

The return of long-lost characters and the introduction of some sharply-drawn newcomers keep the "The Broken Man" from feeling like mere setup for the season finale.

Critic Reviews for The Broken Man

"The Broken Man" wasn't the sort of Game of Thrones episode that leaves us gasping. That said, it was the kind of episode that makes those sorts of showstoppers possible.

Olenna... mounts one of the most satisfying attacks ever on Game of Thrones.

Jun 5, 2016 | Full Review…

With the show heading into its final three episodes, "The Broken Man" did a lot of crucial set-up in economical fashion and via plenty of elegantly written scenes.

Once again there was a sense Game of Thrones was steeling itself for battles - and expensive set-pieces - chugging down the track. A storm is brewing - for now, we were invited to enjoy what remains of the calm.

[Bryan] Cogman's writing crackles with the kind of sly and cynical lines that make Thrones so wicked and delicious.

Having the cocksure, quip-swinging Jaime Lannister of early GOT back was the perfect foil for stubborn Brynden "Blackfish" Tully.

I am 100 percent on board with Margaery's slow, meticulous, furious plan for vengeance.

"The Broken Man" features the return of one such character in an effort to build him back up. And he's got the always charismatic Ian McShane to help him out.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

The changes we're seeing in Thrones this season are simply because we've arrived at Act Three, and sh*t is getting real. We're living in the land of payoffs now, and plot lines seeded years ago are finally coming to fruition.

No one did much on "The Broken Man" other than talk. But it was still pretty satisfying stuff.
