Critics Consensus

"Eastwatch" traded the fiery spectacle of Thrones' previous episode for a slow-burn approach, but nonetheless delivered some spectacular revelations and reunions.

Episode Info

Daenerys demands loyalty from the surviving Lannister soldiers, but resists Tyrion's plea for leniency. Meanwhile, Jon heeds Bran's warning about White Walkers on the move; Davos finds an important ally in King's Landing; and Sam reconsiders his training at the Citadel when there are more pressing matters in the north.

Critic Reviews for Eastwatch

"Eastwatch" brings reminders that "Game of Thrones" excels when it shows just how expansive this world can be.

On top of all the other major bombshells in this week's episode, audiences also found out that Cersei is pregnant. Well, she at least tells Jaime that she's pregnant.

In all, this was a solid hour -- it was plenty entertaining and the plot sped forward yet again.... But my credulity continues to be strained in ways I'm trying not to overthink.

So. Much. Fire.

And so they set off together... and as they walk toward the camera nothing explodes behind them in slow motion which they then do not turn around to look at. But the effect is the same.

Season 7 has set up some incredibly high expectations about what makes a great episode of Game of Thrones, and while I'm tempted to say "Eastwatch" was just ok, it's worth remembering what we would have given to have seen Gendry three seasons ago.

It's dizzying stuff.

A scattershot clockwork of updates and minor machinations, paltry plot pivots and pirouettes that had our heads spinning. Nothing happened, yet somehow everything changed.

It's easy to write stories about idealistic revolutions, and people coming together for the greater good. But to anchor those moments in a world where they seem so improbable - to viscerally show how rare and precious they are - that's a rare artistic

It's particularly effective because it was overall another strong episode. No, there were no massive battles or vanquished armies, but instead the story was propelled forward by solid writing and outstanding performances.

"Eastwatch" was very interested in dropping hints that round out the family history of the other Last Targaryen.

Written by Dave Hill, and directed by Matt Shakman, it's Season 7's last table-setting episode! And the silverware had quite a shine.
