Beautiful. My favourite episode of Thrones so far!
10 April 2013 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

There were no 'epic' climaxes. No battles, nobody lost their heads, but i don't think i've ever finished a Game of Thrones episode feeling so satisfied. This episode was beautifully shot, beautifully written and just a pleasure to watch.

New and highly anticipated characters we added flawlessly to the story. Diana Rigg and Paul Kaye were great. As was Thomas Brodie Sangster and Ellie Kendrick. Story lines advanced strongly. New depths were added to characters furthering even their portrayal in the books. I truly did not want this one to end.
