Second Sons is another well-written episode and sets up the last two
Second Sons is another well-written episode and sets up the last two episodes nicely. Yes, some of the dialog and pacing could've been a bit better, but at least it still maintain the strengths by the previous two seasons.
The storyline/script is still compelling, the performances are still great, the relationships still shines, the directing is really focused well, the editing is still sharp, the scenery is still gorgeous, and Ramin Djawadi continues to compose some beautiful moments in his score. So, overall, not excellent, but still well-written and sets up the last two episodes nicely.
