After last weeks episode being so strong as far as story and pacing goes, I went into this episode wondering if we’d get another stong episode. While I still love this show as much as I did at the very beginning I have felt at times that this season hasn’t held up as well as the first. There have been a few episodes that blew me away, while others not so much. This week we get to visit several places again and even get to see a face we haven’t seen since the season premier which was great. I felt that this episode flew right by once again, but it didn’t suffer from the same jumbled feeling that episode five did.
What this episode did have however, are some very powerful quieter moments. It’s those moments that show the quality that goes in to making something of this caliber. Not to mention the talent that lies within the actors who have to carry those moments on their shoulders. This week starts in the same place as last….in Winterfell.
