Critic reviews for Stormborn

Being ballsy doesn't guarantee survival in Game of Thrones. But knowing when to cut and run just might.

The Age (Australia)

It's the usual Game of Thrones spate of murder and mayhem - often chaotic, always brutal, and full of chills and spills both exciting and empty.

We told you not to sleep on Euron -- this guy is 100% shaking things up.

New Zealand Herald

If last week's premiere offered another meandering hour in the expansive world of Westeros, Stormborn was much closer to the Game of Thrones fans want from Season 7.

This is all to say that Game of Thrones' sometimes facile You Go, Girl proto-feminism has developed into something less positive but more interesting.

The Week

From start to finish, it's a thrill ride. From Daenerys threatening Varys to Theon surrendering yet again, the episode had not a single dull moment.
