He then decides to use the notebook to kill criminals and change the world, but L (Keith Stanfield), an enigmatic detective, attempts to track him down and end his reign of terror.

When Frank said that this film looked like Darren Aronofsky as "his most depraved", I laughed.  This shit looks whack.

First review is up on RT.

"The episode offers up a battle between CGI dragons and CGI zombies, to pulpy effect but no moral consequence."

Big fat splat.

Could this episode go lower than Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken? I sure hope so. The writers deserve some serious critical backlash for this one.
I'd say it's high points even out its lows, but you're 100% right that this is the most flawed episode in the series to date. Still prefer it over Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken though. Hopefully the events from this episode will even themselves out and prove worthwhile, just as many of the events in Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken did.

Too late. Jon bent the knee. I don't recall Unbowed, Unbent, Unbroken ruining a character I've spent three years of my life rooting for.

Next two reviews are another splat and a fresh. If nothing else, the critics seem to understand that this one is of significantly lower quality than GoT is used to.
Maybe it's because my feelings on Dany are fairly neutral, but the bending of the knee didn't bother me at all. If anything, it'll give the whole Sansa/Jon/Arya conflict more purpose.

I think the episode suffers most in comparison to other Thrones episodes. On its own its entertaining but ridiculous high fantasy, but if you compare it to something like Hardhome, it's a big disappointment.

Even if you feel "neutral" about her, this should irritate you. There has been no hard evidence for this entire show as to why Daenerys is a ruler who should be respected or admired. The fact that so many genuinely likable characters are now mindlessly following her does not make her look better; rather, it makes them look worse. She is the most poorly-written character on the show, and she is portrayed by the worst actress out of the entire main cast. What exactly convinced Jon to bend the knee this episode? Because she has dragons? Hard to forget, seeing as she reminds us "I have three very large dragons" every single fucking episode.

Also, I cannot for the life of me understand what was going through the writers' heads when they wrote Arya's scenes in this season. Holy crap, this was terrible. Arguably the worst aspect of the season thus far.
Jon bent the knee because he saw that she was willing to risk her life and the lives of her dragons to save him and the rest of his crew. She wants to be queen and is certainly thirsty for power, but in that scene Jon sees that she's willing to put her life on the line for something she cares about. That's a quality Jon respects, obviously, given how often he's willing to do it himself. If he sees her as a brave and heroic queen who will do what's best for her people and those she cares about, then why wouldn't he bend the knee? Jon bent the knee because Dany proved that she was a leader worth following, plain and simple.
