Storyline

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. While collecting the accounting books at Baelish's brothel, Tyrion has a gift for Podrick. In Astapor, Daenerys decides to buy all 8000 of the Unsullied and offers one of her dragons as payment. North of the Wall, the surviving members of the Night's Watch try to stay alive. They stop at Craster's keep and Samwell sees that Gilly is giving birth.

Hoster Tully: [talks with Catelyn Stark] It often comforts me to think that even in war's darkest days, in most places in the world, absolutely nothing is happening.

Building momentum
14 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

Game of Thrones is all about momentum, and that's what this episode stays true to: it builds up momentum. Without giving anything away, let me just say that viewers who found this season's previous episodes sluggish will be really pleased.

There's a lot going on in this episode. All the varied elements that we've come to expect from Game of Thrones at its best are here: emotion, action, humour, cliffhanger.

Highlights - Ciarán Hinds makes his first move; I couldn't wait to see him get into the action. Meanwhile it's heartening to see another actor from the cast of HBO's Rome introduced: Tobias Menzies as Catelyn's brother, Edmure Tully.

There are also some powerful emotional scenes, spectacularly acted and directed.

I especially loved Tyrion and Pod's antics in this episode. In a TV show all about war and death, the lightheartedness is a welcome relief.

Altogether a great episode. Can't wait for the next one!
