Another great episode for the fifth Game of Thrones season
24 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The House of Black and White is another great episode in the fifth Game of Thrones season.

Yes, the pacing did drag a bit longer, but what it fails in pacing it makes up for it by advancing the plot progression a bit nice. The performances are still great, the storyline/script continue to be well-written, the directing and editing is well-focused, the scenery is still gorgeous to look at, the sets and costumes are still lavish, the music score from Ramin Djawadi is still beautiful, and the relationships continue to shine. So, overall, another great episode in the fifth season. :)
