With Jaime "gone," her son completely out of her control, and Tyrion neutralized, this is her last chance.
Kill Tywin and Tyrion and put her son in a cage is the best she could ever hope for at this point in time.
True, but they are not psychotic (unlike the Lannisters).
I am not sure sure about not being pyschopathic, we really dont know much about them yet
......As far as the death dentence I think I may agree with you on that one, although he is smarter and more lethal than Cersi will ever be.

Well everyone know the marraige to Loras is paper only
they dont need to ask him, hell do what he is told.. Its basically the same arrangement that Renly had.....

As for Theon, I really didn't understand the reason for the deception in freeing him only to have your own men chase him, be killed then deceive him while bringing him back to the same captors. WTF was that?
Saw it coming for sure, but the big turn of events with Dany was pretty cool as it went down. Particularly liked how she freed the warriors promising them no harm only to have them stay in rank and file. It is just me or did she suddenly become far more intelligent over the course of the last season or so? I realize she's young and maturing but she seemed very naive and hot headed at first where now there's a tact and slow burn when it comes to her emotions. All part of the complexity and shifting we're seeing in many characters right now from Theon, Jaime, Brienne, Varys, Littlefinger, etc.
Personally I can't wait to see the outcome of the trial by combat with Arya. I like how she is being recognized and respected by the brotherhood despite being a little girl. She talks a good game, I hope we get to see her back it up with action sooner than later.
Finally they are really playing up Podrick's talents aren't they? Carrying it beyond the little joke with Tyrion to a full blown discussion this week. I can't help but laugh.
In all, I agree - best episode this season so far.
When I saw that look Cersi gave I almsot got a Norma Bates feel lol......
As for Theon, I think that story is still unfolding. For sure when he spilt his guts about what actually happened and how he felt about who he was it sealed his fate even if he were gettign released. He should have just kept his mouth shut.
For Danny shee has for sure matured and grown into her role as the deposed heir to the throne...It was last season or the season before when Mormont told her she needs to start acting more like a queen that things really started to change. This season if has come to bloom, she allows people to think she is weak and naive all the while getting the upper hand.
As soon as I heard that the Brothers were followers of the God of Light, I knew that Sandor was in trouble, the one thing he fears is fire, and that is what these people worship, it will not end well I dont think for him. Arya on the other hand I think will exact her revenge
.....The one thing I keep thinking of is that we havent seen Nymeria since Arya sent her away. I wonder if that will play a role in her future, just have one of those feelings when we least expect it, that direwolf will come into play.....
