Game Of Thrones Season 2 Episode 2 Reviews: Is The HBO Drama Maintaining Its Quality?

Game of Thrones made its long-awaited return with season 3 not so long ago, and did so in the dark, high quality fashion you’d expect it to. So, now that episode 2 - Dark Wings, Dark Words has been and gone, are we still impressed?

Well the answer is a simple yes, if The Guardian are anything to go by. “It had everything that makes Game of Thrones so addictive: the adept juggling of a number of plotlines, subtle character development and brooding hints of trouble to come,” writes Sarah Hughes. “Best of all however,” she continues, “was the heart-rending conversation between Catelyn and Talisa, which started by showing us the younger woman's desperate desire to integrate herself with her mother-in-law and ended by revealing the depth of Catelyn's guilt.” The Guardian writers have proved to be serious fanboys/girls over pretty much every HBO show in existence. Perhaps Forbes can give us their view. “Game of Thrones is back in fighting shape after a bit of a lull last week as HBO’s epic fantasy rose sleepily from its hibernation to reintroduce us to its web of plots, sub-plots, and its myriad characters,” they write.

The Huffington Post pose the question, was this “A Feminist Episode, a Gay Episode, or a Dull Episode?” They conclude that it wasn’t dull, the female characters are ahead of their male counterparts, and there were hints of homosexual themes throughout.
