Critic reviews for Beyond the Wall

Despite the characters' rush to stop their squabbling, gather forces and stockpile crops, Game of Thrones shouldn't be in a rush to gloss over what the show does best: fully immerse viewers in a vibrant and engaging world.

While "Beyond the Wall" won't stand up to more impressive efforts like "Blackwater" or "The Watchers on the Wall", it gets the job done when it comes to raising tension for the final hour of the season.

This is a polar bear that someone took the time and effort to turn into a zombie. It's beautiful. It's ridiculous. It's probably the reason there was no CGI budget left for Ghost to do anything this season.

I'll get right to the point-"Beyond the Wall" was a solid, extremely watchable episode that transcended a dubious plot.
