Critic reviews for Dragonstone

The first episode of any season of Game of Thrones is a brutal affair, tossing you around so much between what's passed and what's to come that you invariably end up with a mild case of whiplash.

The Age (Australia)

It's the type of scene we see far too little of in Game of Thrones as the series approaches its endgame. It doesn't advance the plot. It doesn't give us any new details about political snarls or the advancing undead. It simply elucidates.

Consequence of Sound

It's still exciting to see new alliances form, but surely the best is saved for last as Dany is finally on the same continent as everyone else.

Empire Magazine

The premiere of Season Seven was woefully predictable, occasionally absurd, and above all shockingly dull. The one thing the episode will be remembered for -- Ed Sheeran's cameo appearance -- was an embarrassment.

Daily Mail (UK)

Penultimate seasons historically feel like writers easing off the pedal before the final year, though I'm certainly not about to write Game of Thrones Season 7 off for an unremarkable premiere.

Last night's exceptional premiere for Game of Thrones' seventh season answered many of the outstanding questions left from last season.
