A great beginning to Season 3
20 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Valar Dohaeris does a fantastic job continuing where the last season left off and is very interesting to see new characters appear.

The relationships are still good, the performances are still good, the script is well-written, the story's solid, the scenery and music score's great, and the directing along with pacing is tighter and does give a lot of atmosphere to the background and the characters.

My only quibble is that the new characters had little to do and I would love to see more of their lines, but it doesn't matter. Everything else turned out fine. Overall, a great beginning to Season 3 and I would love to review the rest sometime today.
