Like when she was having that guy kill everyone, or when she was doing the back and forth with Papa Lannister. Jamie, Tyrion, and Arya are easily my favorites on this show. Moments from others, but those three give me stupid grins when they're on the screen.

    Another thing I was thinking about in regards to Jamie and Brienne. I got the feeling that he feels comfortable with her because of a respect he has for her. He sees this woman who has probably had to fight for everything she's ever gotten, and he finds it admirable in his world of everything being handed to him. So, instead of being his (completely) manipulative self, he's a little more honest and just insensitive. He seems to like that she doesn't take his ****.

    Lastly, I just have to believe that Daenerys is going to light that mother trucking city up after she gets her people. She's gone from this passive what do I do girl to what seems like a woman on a mission and, when she wants to be, ruthless as ****. It's those crazy eyes she was flashing.

    I felt bad for Jamie, since he did actually did something for a person who wasn't himself, but then I remember that he did attempt to murder a young boy just to cover up his sister-sex. And Jamie succeeded in murdering his own cousin. So he probably earned it. But I do like this season's Jamie thus far.

    Theon deserves everything he got. Right now he might be the second most loathsome character in the series, although giving Cersei credit for doing something generally automatic like loving her children is a bit much. Besides, she probably loves them for the same reason she loves Jamie - they remind her of herself. At the same time, I don't know if I should give Tywin and Petyr credit the other way (toward being more loathsome) just because, unlike Theon, they are actually competent.

    The transition from Jamie's behanding to the fast rock song was probably the most inappropriate musical transition I have ever seen. I remember when there was a huge thing about some supporting character (can't remember who) not getting the silent clock on 24 when they died.

    Great episode, although the Stannis scene really felt like it was only there to remind us that he was still around. Hot Pie's farewell was perfect, the chair maneuvering was brilliant and great playing to character, Bronn, the Craster scene was great - dude loves being a complete a-hole and forcing the Night's Watch to take it because they need his place when they go touring north, and the opening scene was also fantastic - great visually and introducing and explaining two new characters before dialogue really came in. I can't get into my problems with the Dany scene just yet for spoiler reasons.

    That's what I'm thinking. She's not just giving away that dragon (and I get the feeling that she understands the **** that dude is talking about her which is not being translated, otherwise they would not be so diligent in giving us subtitles). That dragon is a Trojan horse and that guy that is selling her the troops is dead. She's gonna be stomping around like DeNiro in the "Untouchables." I want Eliott Ness... dead! I want his family... dead!

    Okay, so..... this past episode was by far one of the best so far. I LOVED it! The opening scene was as akward as I expected it to be. Robb contiues to grow into role as King, and I love how he stood up to his uncle. I'm going to miss Hot Pie. He added that somewhat needed comic relief for all the seriousness that goes on in Arya's storyline. Tyrian's scenes were classic Tyrian Lannister, IMO. The chair dragging with the small council, and interrogating Poddrick were just awesome. On a side note, I'm really enjoying Lena Headey's portayal of Cersei.

    In regards to Danaerys, I think they did an excellent job in casting Emilia Clarke. She's as beautiful as you can expect, and yet, she has these moments where you can see this little girl that's being forced to grow up and try to conquer the world. And that makes it really akward for me when you think about how Drogo had his way with her in a few scenes from season 1.

    Oh, and Jaime........ Thtill not thure how I feel about that thene. My wife was pretty shocked, and I'm thtill upthet about a thertain character being replathed.

    And yeah, there were a few scenes that seemed liked they were put in just to remind you that there are other stoylines going on. So I'm not touching them.

    Dunno Doc...I have to call bs. You admire/feel sorry for Jamie due to the fact that he OWNS who he is. Even though by his own hand Bran was pushed, presumably to his death. And his cousin, he killed to serve his own needs for escape. Yet Theon made decisions that led to the farmer boys deaths/Winterfell burning, yet it would seem that regardless of his decisions those things would have happened anyway. Those Iron Islanders were dead set on that path and the guy who duped Theon just included him in the project. I still think that everyone should be able to identify with Theon. The Starks treated him as a glorified pet, and they Greyjoys gave him away and basically forgot he even existed. Even Roz, a lowly whore, ridiculed him. His entire life spent as NOTHING. **** Jon Snow...at least his brothers and Arya LOVED him. And, to an extent, Ned. Uncle Benjen...WHO loved Theon? Ever? I tell you who...NOBODY. I cannot understand the abject dismissal.

    OK let me rephrase... I feel sorry for me because I wanted to see him **** people up and be awesome and now I feel like that probably won't happen.

    Yet Theon made decisions that led to the farmer boys deaths/Winterfell burning, yet it would seem that regardless of his decisions those things would have happened anyway. Those Iron Islanders were dead set on that path and the guy who duped Theon just included him in the project. I still think that everyone should be able to identify with Theon.

    Dude... Theon sucks. Go talk to your therapist or hug your puppet pillow or something.

    There is no way she is going to part with any of her dragons. That guy and his city are doomed.
