I agree that the whole Danaerys arc this season was poor, especially the house of the undying.
However, I thought the white walkers and wights were very cooly executed. I'm not sure yet about how they have short-cutted Jon Snow's adventure. I really like what they did with Theon and Asha (err Yara). The actor playing Theon has done great. They cut Tyrion down to size considerably this ep which follows his arc perfectly. The scar isn't half as bad as in the book but I didn't see how they were going to seriously mutilate their leading man. Robb is sort of silly. Worst. Decision. Ever. I guess I have to remember he's just a boy. They didn't show the immediate consequences (all the Freys leaving). The Red Wedding is next season. They are playing Roose Bolton perfectly. That actor is doing a great job. Quiet but really menacing and yet nondescript. I always have to remind myself who he is. Arya's adventures were done fine with the reparte with Tywin being some of the high points. The kid playing Joffrey is doing a great job. The set up to get him out of his vow was really poorly done in a very good way. I was actually happy for the Littlefinger reveal for Sansa which anticipates things next season. I'm not sure what Varys has in mind but I like the actor playing him. And really like the actress doing Brienne.
All in all, I thought the ep covered most of the bases needed to be covered and mostly good with the Theon Greyjoy story being the bestest. Second place goes to Jaime and Brienne.
