Game of Thrones - Season 7, Episode 5 - Rotten Tomatoes




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

Critic reviews for Eastwatch

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

What the hour lacked in Drogon-fuelled destruction it more than made up for with bombshells, surprise reunions and chilling intimations of sisterly strife.

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.

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.
