Oliver Davis reviews the tenth episode of Game of Thrones Season Four….

The Children. Directed by Alex Graves. Written by David Benioff and D. B. Weiss.  


After his episode-length edition last week, Season 4′s climactic installment opened with Jon Snow (Kit Harington), and followed on from where he was last left: venturing beyond the Wall to negotiate with the Wildling ‘King.’ Their tense scene together is amplified by persistent cutaways – a close-up of a knife, a suspicious glare at potentially poisoned wine. But Mance Ryder (Ciarán Hinds) isn’t going to kill Snow, and neither is his 100,000-strong army here to attack the Wall; he just wants to hide behind its towering ice. The King Beyond the Wall echoes what the Starks have been saying since the show’s very first episode: Winter is coming. There’s a season before the chilly(er) period, though – Stannis Season, Baby!
