GAME OF THRONES: "THE CLIMB" REVIEW

More arranged marriages! Rickon had a line! Hodor awakens from a deep sleep by saying "Hodor!" And welcome back, Joffrey. Kid Malicious has returned! "The Climb" wasn't as strong an outing as the past two episodes, but it did give us a hell of an ending - a big sweeping emotional moment filled with soaring music, Littlefinger's epic "Chaos is a Ladder" speech and a shot of Sansa weeping right before we cut to Jon and Ygritte standing lovingly triumphant on top of the wall.

A roller coaster of emotion indeed. READ MORE...
