Season 2 ended with "Valar Morghulis". It's only fitting that season 3 should start with "Valar Dohaeris", the second part of the High Valyrian greeting. Particularly so as this season starts off right where we left off in season 2. But this episode is not about lingering in the past. It nicely sets the stage for the new seasons with new subplots and interesting scenes.
