Jon Snow, Dany, and the final scene were pretty well done, but I thought it was kind of a poor episode overall. I did like the added Jaime scene. Interested in what the non-readers thought.

A little too much exposition but overall I liked it just fine. I've said this before but I get the feeling that the first half of the season is set up for a lot of action in the second half. They're getting the back story in right now and doing a damn good job of it.

I think you mean Rickon - Tommen is Joffrey's younger brother.

Yes I did. Thanks for the correction. It's not hard to get your 4 year old's with names ending "N" mixed up in this series.

LOL was I the only one thinking "Run Imp!" When Lady Stark started naming those that are loyal to the Starks?...and they didn't hesitate either. Poor Imp, but I'm still not sure if he's totally innocent.

Some were loyal to the Stark house and others to Lady Cat's family house.

For those of you who think many of the characters seem to be predictable and standard archtypes of the fantasy genre, I'll give you this. Many do start out this way, thats the great thing about this story, as you get to know them more and more they become much less transparent, predictable and multi dimensional as the story and plot thickens. If you stick with it, you'll be surprised at what many of the characters evolve into and how they change through the course of this tale. I assure you this is one of the most popular modern works of fantasy for good reason. Have patience. It'll pay off in spades.

You're right, but I'm guessing that was a bad move on her part...arresting the queen's brother with no real evidence. She should've just questioned him a bit about the dagger.

Viserys Targaryen needs to be put in his place.

I guess the Midget is... a bit in over his head?

A bit too much expositionary dialogue in this one, but still pretty enjoyable for me.

sorry, I didn't think it'd be a spoiler to discuss things already shown and how they may differ from the book. (I did not read the book so I can't spoil anything anyway.)

My thought as well. Nothing was being spoiled, just talking about the differences between the book and show based on what has already happened.

Peter Dinklage is a terrific actor, check out some of his other roles.

Just a reminder that the spoiler rules apply to the show as it airs at its regular time. For those that view the episode a week early on HBO GO, anything from that episode would be considered a spoiler until the following Sunday - after it airs on HBO (East coast).

That's how I know it's about to end, every time it gets really interesting, the credits roll.

Yeah but why would you want to watch on a small screen?

Even if you have a htpc setup, the streaming PQ can't be as good.
