Beyond the Wall



Critic Consensus: "Beyond The Wall" delivered the epic battles and plot twists that are expected from the penultimate episode of a Game of Thrones season -- although sometimes in ways that defied logic.

Jon's mission continues north of the Wall, but the odds against his ragged band of misfits may be greater than he imagined. Meanwhile, Sansa's and Arya's suspicions of one another increase, widening the rift between them; and Tyrion and Daenerys discuss the future of her reign.

Critic reviews for Beyond the Wall

As set-up for the end game, it could hardly have been better.

"Beyond the Wall" is quite simply a brutal, exciting, oddly emotional hour-and-a-bit of television.

Despite the characters' rush to stop their squabbling, gather forces and stockpile crops, Game of Thrones shouldn't be in a rush to gloss over what the show does best: fully immerse viewers in a vibrant and engaging world.
