Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Arya may have found a new protector but one of her friends decides not to continue on their journey. Robb arrives in Riverrun for his grandfather's funeral but is not pleased to hear that his uncle Edmure failed to follow his orders and attacked Tywin Lannister's army. His plans to entrap the Lannister's army are now ruined. At King's Landing, Tywin Lannister relieves Baelish of his duties as treasurer and assigns the task to his son Tyrion, who openly admits that he has far more experience spending money than managing it.

Another great, albeit not excellent, episode for Season 3
20 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Walk of Punishment and the first two episodes are great, albeit not excellent and so far, it's been off to a solid start. The story/script continues to be very well-written, the directing and editing is still excellent, the performances are still great, the scenery/music score's still gorgeous, and the relationships continue to be compelling.

My only quibble is that the story-arcs for the new characters weren't used a bit and it would've been better to see them have a relationship with the Stark family and the Lannister family as well. But it doesn't matter. Everything else turned out fine. So, overall, another great episode for Season 3.
