    The Missandei/Grey Worm scene was cute. I enjoyed the Tyrion/Jaime scene (even though Jaime can pretty much go **** himself.) The Sansa/Littlefinger scene really delivered for me. That was appropriately creepy.

    Other than that, I don't even know wtf I just watched.

    I just don't get it why Littlefinger would tell all this to Sansa and keep her alive, cunning ******* that he is in his own rules he would not take that risk to get caught...

    I suspected the old lady all along, although I could not come up with a motive for her. Seems a little weak still. And I agree that I don't understand why Littlefinger would spill the beans to Sansa. He doesn't seem to say or do anything that is not calculated to bring him some advantage. What's to be gained by revealing his part in the plot to Sansa, unless it is to gain favor with her clan, which is now all but gone?

    Review: Game of Thrones - Oath-Keeper: I am Spartacus!

    And then there's Jaime Lannister, who after last week's unpleasantness has to go back to pretending to be the same guilt-stricken, lovable rogue he was for all of last season.

    Though the show doesn't necessarily want you to think he's pretending.

    It's a complicated thing that happened last week between Jaime and Cersei, not just because different people associated with the show (whether Alex Graves, David Benioff or George R.R. Martin) had such different takes on what exactly that scene was meant to convey, but because the audience had such an overwhelming consensus on it: that Jaime raped Cersei, no ifs ands or buts. In many cases, the notion of authorial intent clashing with audience interpretation isn't some impossible puzzle. If you have a different take on what Rosebud represented to Charles Foster Kane than what Orson Welles had in his head, that's fine. In this case, though, we have an ongoing story featuring characters who continue, and we have them continuing on from a point about which there is some disagreement between the audience and at least part of the creative team over what exactly happened next to Joffrey's corpse.


    And in an episode where Jaime is very prominent in many scenes, he comes across as exactly the guy he was before that scene last week: charming, conflicted, caring more deeply for Brienne and Tyrion than you would expect a man in his position to, and wanting to accomplish something good on the matter of Sansa Stark and the oath he made to Lady Catelyn. And when he shares a scene again with Cersei, she is visibly angry with him, but it does not seem to be over a rape, but over the death of their child and Jaime apparently siding with the brother she believes to be Joffrey's killer.

    Now, it could well be that her anger is meant to be about both — that Cersei is venting to Jaime about the one because she can't bring herself to speak of the other. She acts like a woman who has written Jaime off forever, and it could be for the thing that she doesn't want to dignify by discussing in his presence, even as she knows that they're forced to interact by circumstance and station. There is some ambiguity there, and potential for this to be dealt with more directly down the road, if Benioff and Weiss so choose.

    I'm pretty disappointed that Olenna had to spell out that she was behind Joffrey's death to Margaery. I really thought Margaery was smarter than that.

    Y'know...clearly they are going somewhere different with that...and I am still not sure that we aren't being fed red herrings here. It's a little tooooooo loudly obvious and underlined(particularly given the point that Baelish is coming off like a Bond villain with his monologues to Sansa, which, for a player like him, is terribly out of character). So it either feels hinky, like y'all are expressing, due to bad storytelling or diversion. Remains to be seen which.

    I wish I was confident that the showrunners are that clever.

    Well, they did have a discussion with Martin re:unwritten portions of the story. It's really hard to judge some of the changes until we see the entire run and (hopefully) have the books to compare to. I get your exasperation with the events of last episode and they are totally justified, but aside from that deviation(however major) do you still not think they have done a terrific job with decision making so far? I think the story has been well served and in some cases improved by Benioff/Weiss.

    I can't help but be a little pessimistic. They've really ruined some of my favorite characters and favorite moments up to this point, and I will forever be bitter about how much they love showing women being raped. They may have some master plan and everything will fall into place and work perfectly and end up being as amazing as I expect it to be. We'll have to see. But as of right now, I'm not 100% convinced.

    That said, they have made a lot of great decisions. It's not easy to translate these books into tv material, but they've done remarkably well so far, with a few missteps here and there.
