Beyond the Wall


Critic Score

Critic Consensus: "Beyond The Wall" delivered the epic battles and plot twists that are expected from the penultimate episode of a Game of Thrones season -- although sometimes in ways that defied logic.

Episode Info

Jon's mission continues north of the Wall, but the odds against his ragged band of misfits may be greater than he imagined. Meanwhile, Sansa's and Arya's suspicions of one another increase, widening the rift between them; and Tyrion and Daenerys discuss the future of her reign.

As set-up for the end game, it could hardly have been better.

The Age (Australia)

Game of Thrones is a show that makes its bones on big moments but it's one that gets it meaning, its worth, from the smaller interactions that give us a reason to care about the individuals rising and falling amid these intricate schemes and bloody ends.

Beyond the Wall suffer[s] some of the worst, most poorly-constructed Game of Thrones plotting in some time.

'Beyond the Wall' was a wild, devastating ride of a penultimate episode.

Around this time, I got a text from a dear friend that said "THIS EPISODE IS SO DUMB I AM DYING." Fair enough!

Of course I still enjoyed watching Dany BBQ those wights, but it felt a bit empty and manufactured.
