Terrific episode. Benioff and Weiss really know how to tell a (bunch of) stories. Just perfectly handled.
And Pod must be short for TRIpod.

Awesome episode tonight. I just knew Dany was gonna let the fire and death loose on the slavers and the city. I applauded at the end.
BTW, I have not read the books so anything I may predict is simply conjecture and definitely not a spoiler.
Damn, I love this series.

Solid episode, nothing really anything spectacular. There must be something going on with Pod since there was another mention of it, so I doubt it is what it seems on the surface. Tywin schooling Cersei was nice - it is fun to watch her freak out about Margaery, especially since she's right to be worried. Also liked seeing Theon get the rug pulled out. That dude really went to a lot of trouble to troll him, what with spending a day going on a wild goose chase and killing four men who were on his own side. I think he wins the award for best trolling.
Watching Theon reach and reach in an attempt to justify his betrayal to himself was very well written and acted. I wonder if there was supposed to be a contrast with Dany offering the Unsullied freedom - as if people who have been programmed from birth into obedient killing machines can suddenly have free will. But since Dany offered it, she can justify using them for her army. And since she was going to "free" them, it was okay to go back on her deal and kill everyone. Not that they didn't deserve killing.

Y'know the new kid and his sister who are teaching Brann about seeing through the eyes of animals... Isn't he the same kid who was in "Love Actually"?

I believe I have heard something like that.

Dear lord, this show is moving along at a snail's pace.

That made me feel better Doc, thanks.
And conjecture is fine opposed to spoiler hints. Book readers need to be careful though not to confirm or deny any conjecture. That being said I was proud of you guys last week predicting that Dany wasn't going to give up her dragons. And it was extremely hard to not say so.
Oh and spoilers if you haven't seen last nights episode
goodbye to the old bear, now his watch has ended.

Wow, terrific episode! Daenerys talking back to the slave master in his tongue gave me goosebumps, I felt they really did a good job of making that whole scene have an impact with the music and visuals. The Lord Commander (Jeor Mormont, thanks Google) dying was a bit lost in the victory of having that piece of crap Craster getting his. James Cosmo was excellent and Mormont is gonna be missed. Craster dying was great, unfortunately the backstabbing jerk that killed Mormont immediately filled his shoes as the villain amongst the Night's Watch. As for Theon, I actually laughed at him returning to the torture chamber, it took me by such surprise I couldn't help it. Poor guy, LOL.
But I fear the Hound is about to get put down :(

I suddenly wanted kingslayer and the short haired woman to take out all those men, and violently. Is that bad?
I also wanted the guy to choose Arya to fight big burly guy.
Margaraey(?) is still a Tudor wife for my mind.
I swear, there are so many characters on this show I start forgetting names easily.
