These episodes are only getting better and better. Because we got a large dose of exposition earlier in the season, we are really able to move forward with all the different plot threads that Game of Thrones offers. This episode consisted of little actual action and a lot of “behind-the-scenes” type maneuvers, but it was fantastic. Several moments gripped me emotionally, especially the ending of Robert, Ned and Dany’s storylines for this week. We are in the thrust of Season 1’s crescendo, and I can’t wait for the last three installments. If ASOIAF newcomers think things were intense in Episode 7 they have no idea what’s ahead.
