by Steven Riley

It may be the middle of July, but for Game of Thrones winter is most definitely coming… While past season openers are notoriously take a while to thaw out before a generally explosive ending (literally with that season six finale), the laying of the Westeros war table sees the show runners turn the heat up […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×10: The Winds of Winter’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Promise me, Ned.” Olenna Tyrell sits all in black in the water gardens of Dorne, surrounded by beautiful women bent on revenge. “Cersei stole the future from me,” she tells Ellaria.

‘Game of Thrones 6×09: Battle of the Bastards’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“I lived with him.” Violence is a form of intimacy. To cut into another person’s body, to reveal the secret machinery of their existence, is an incredible violation, yes, but it’s also about the closest, physically, two people can be. The dead of the Battle of Winterfell form a hill together, a single massive edifice […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×08: No One’ Review

‘Game of Thrones 6×07: The Broken Man’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“Violence is a disease.” Possession, loss, reclamation; these are mile markers on the endless circuit of war down which great houses and their hapless draftees trudge, marching ever lower on a corkscrew path like a frozen whirlpool, like a huge mouth sucking up men and spitting out corpses. But why? Why keep fighting even, as […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×06: Blood of My Blood’ Review

by Gretchen Felker-Martin

“It’s not an easy thing, admitting to yourself who you really are.” Fanatics, dragonriders, face-peeling assassins, and the walking dead. ‘Blood of My Blood’, the sixth episode of Game of Thrones‘ riveting sixth season, spent its hour marrying intimate moments of introspection to towering spectacle as deftly as the High Sparrow facilitated his erasure of the […]

“Hodor.” It feels strange to learn something so grave and so terrible in a scene less than a minute long. The Children of the Forest made their own destroyers, sacrificing men on the roots of their heart trees and giving them a new and awful life as the White Walkers, a bitter sword forged to […]

‘Game of Thrones 6×04: Book of the Stranger’ Review

Slighted, we want justice. ‘Book of the Stranger’ is a complex portrait, sometimes lovely, sometimes gruesome, of what those impulses mean and how they impact our lives. In […]
