I really liked this week's episode too. They keep getting better every week.
I thought the edgy, rather distant, tone of Bran and Sansa's reunion made sense. After all, they had not seen each other since Bran was a little boy and Sansa an innocent and naive romantic. Neither of those earlier versions of themselves exist any longer. Bran has become a mystic who has occult powers and Sansa is now a wary, if not outright cynical, power player. Thus, Bran and Sansa really don't know each other any more.
I wasn't worried at all by the writers' decision to show us the Battle of Highgarden. Like the writers, I didn't see much to be gained by depicting at length a one-sided battle.
I continue to have a lot of respect for Tyrion's judgment but agree that he has been hampered by a lack of intelligence. It makes me wonder why Varys and his little birds have failed in such critical ways.
