Quotes

Tormund Giantsbane: [points at Jon] The crows killed him because he spoke for the free folk when no other southerners would. He died for us. If we are not willing to do the same for him, we're cowards. And if that's what we are, we deserve to be the last of the free folk.

Reminded me of the earlier GOT episodes
6 June 2016 | by XxxDaniel94See all my reviews

I've been reading a lot of people's opinions on this episode, with some calling it boring, others slow, but to me, I was reminded of Game of Thrones back during seasons 1 and 2. This builds up epic battles which will be taking place in the next few episodes and the tension here is spectacular.

Without any spoilers, this episode starts of brilliantly, with an arrival of someone that made me smile from ear to ear. The Jon and Sansa's storyline was also very good here, as it will pay off when the big battle arrives. The scenes at Kings Lander were not all that important, with some good lines thrown in there, but little happening, but still enough to hold your interest.

The Arya scenes were very well done, but very rushed. All of the episodes this season have been way too short, and there feels like they could have had time for some more scenes.

However the best part about this episode is its build up, every character we see if thrown in a cliffhanger of sorts. Also the production this episode was outstanding, the sets the beautiful landscapes and new regions we have never seen before, were done so well.

This is a slow episode but it is by far not boring, it was like the older episodes that built up tension that will pay off soon.

9/10
