Storyline

With the battle won, King Joffrey names his grandfather, Tywin Lannister, as the Hand of the King. It has an immediate impact on Tyrion, who awakens in new and much smaller quarters wounded from the battle . Petyr Baelish is rewarded for his loyalty. The King takes an interest in Lady Margaery Tyrell and decides to marry her. Lord Varys recruits a new spy. Arya has managed to escape from Harrenhal with Jaqen H'ghar's help. He shows her something of himself. Theon and his men are surrounded at Winterfell and are forced to abandon their position. They don't leave much behind. North of the wall, Jon impresses his captor in a fight with one of his own. King Robb and Talisa are married despite the promise he had previously made. Brienne and Jaime Lannister continue their journey but not without difficulty. In Qarth, Daenerys enters the House of the Undying to retrieve her dragons. Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Pycell gives Tyrion a piece of silver and says "For your trouble" calling back to when Tyrion had Pycell arrested and Tyrion gave silver to the prostitute that had been with Pycell. The problem with this callback is that by the time Tyrion gave the prostitute the silver, Pycell was no longer in the room. He would have had no way to know that Tyrion had done this. See more »

Quotes

[Arya, Gendry and Hot Pie encounter Jaqen on the road after their escape from Harrenhal]
Arya Stark: What are you doing here?
Jaqen H'ghar: Waiting for you.
Arya Stark: How did you know we'd come this way?
Jaqen H'ghar: After all the things you have seen, this is your question?
Arya Stark: How did you kill those guards? Was it hard?
Jaqen H'ghar: No harder than taking a new name, if you know the way.
Arya Stark: Show me how. I want to be able to do it too.
Jaqen H'ghar: If you would learn, you must come with me.
Arya Stark: Where?

Valar Morghulis is a classic set-up for Season 3

Valar Morghulis wraps up the story lines left by the previous episodes perfectly and sets Season 3 up nicely. Sure it did drag a little bit longer, but it doesn't matter. Everything else turned out great.

The performances are still great, the character relationships are still interesting, the writing is really good, the story is well-done, the editing is sharp, the music score from Ramin Djawadi is still great, and the directing is still good. Also the script is still well-written as it gives the actors plenty to shine with their delivery.

Now that I've finished reviewing Season 2, I have three more to go if I want to catch up on the sixth. So, overall, classic episode and great set up for Season 3.
