Critic Reviews for The Queen's Justice

At every turn, "The Queen's Justice" breaks the ancient exhortation to "show, not tell."

Jul 30, 2017 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

This was a spring-loaded visit to Westeros that ticked every box and then invented some new boxes and ticked them also.

You can keep your dragons -- I'll take halfway decent banter over fire-breathing CGI critters any day.

Aug 1, 2017 | Full Review…

It's a hell of a way to go out, but a character like Olenna -- and an actress like Rigg, who always let you see the danger flashing behind those eyes -- deserves nothing less.

We'll stay tuned but this by-the-numbers meeting of two titans didn't wow us.

Jul 31, 2017 | Full Review…

After the slightly ponderous opening to the season, I was utterly delighted by this episode, one that I felt had a real respect for the years we've all put into these characters and this wonderfully convoluted world.

An exciting end to a very complete episode. [Full Review in Spanish]

Aug 13, 2019 | Full Review…

While the plot has broadly contracted and the show's structure has subtly shifted to reflect that, by the episode's end, Game of Thrones proves that it's still more than capable of painting on a wide canvas.

Apr 5, 2019 | Full Review…

Structurally, it seems more and more likely that Season 7 is giving Cersei some early triumphs in order to make Dany's inevitable victory that much more dramatic.

Apr 5, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The Queen of Thorns certainly lived up to her name in episode 3, and Jaime Lannister will be feeling the sting of her barbs long after her body is cold.
