First, I share the enthusiasm expressed by others for the wonderful performances of Jack Gleeson as the evil Joffrey. Speaking of Joffrey,I have always had high regard for Margery's ability as a courtesan. Not only is she a sexy beauty, she is ambitious and smart. King or not, I think Joffrey is in way over his head with Lady Margery. Margery's grandmother, Lady Olenna, played by the wonderful Diana Rigg, is a scary lady but a very smart one. I see where Margery's intelligence came from.
As treacherous as he has been, I can't help but feel a little sorry for Theon. He tried to seduce his sister, who now despises him, and has lost the confidence of his father. Now he is paying the price. It's ugly.
The Hound having recognized Arya puts her in a lot of danger. As we have seen, though, there's no telling what the Hound will do with his new found knowledge and Arya has shown boundless resourcefulness in getting herself out of scrapes.
I had a hard time accepting that Brienne would embark on a cross-country trek while wearing a suit of armor but it did come in handy when she was fighting Jaime on the bridge. It doesn't look good for either Brienne or Jamie at the moment.
All in all, I thought this week's Game of Thrones was another example of excellent storytelling and can hardly wait for next week.
