Another great episode for Season 3
20 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dark Wings, Dark Words is another great episode. My only quibble is that the pacing felt pretty uneven with a nice opening, but a bit too long ending. Everything else turned out fine. The performances and relationships continue to shine, the scenery's still gorgeous, the directing and editing is nice and sharp, the music score's still good, and the story/script is well-written.

Also, it does a great job continuing the story-arcs for the Stark family including Bran Stark who journeys with three people named Hodor, Meera, and Jojen to find the three-eyed crow. Even Arya gets a little more screen time as well and shines in her relationships with two of the slaves she befriended in Season 2.

Overall, another great episode for the third season.
