    Agree that the incredible quality of each actor's performances amaze throughout this entire series. The directing is also stellar as are the casting, the scripts, the sets and location scenes, the lighting and the music. In so many ways GoT has set a new standard for quality on TV that will be difficult to exceed.

    Kudos to the producers for creating this hugely successful endeavor.

    It was another solid episode. Regarding Jaime, yeah you start to get the feeling that he may not be such a bad guy after all. The scene when Lord Bolton told was telling him about his sister was priceless. It should be noted that he did get excited while in the tub with Brienne. The Arya/ Hound scenes were better than expected. Amazing! And poor Robb seems to be losing his grip on his forces. Grey Worms story was pretty cool, too.

    Stannis? eh, I feel sorry for the daughter. Him? not so much

You are starting to see that even the innocent play their own Game of Thrones is some shape or form.
    I love the way the writers are carefully adding layers of depth and intimacy to each character as the series unfolds.

    One has to wonder if Tywin's marriage plans for his children have a prayer of succeeding. There are too many strong-wiiled and devious characters with equally valid agendas who will do their best to cause these intended nuptials to fail. Just my feeling here...

    Just a bit more on Stannis....... He's a puppet. Yes, to some degrees other characters are too, but he KNOWS he's a puppet, and he's okay with it so long as he gets what is promised to him. That's why I have no sympathy for him. I mean, who allows for their only child to be locked away like that? REgardless of her condition?

    OH!!! and that song she was singing is creepy as ****!!!

    This **** has bugged me from Jump Street! or should I say Kings Road... anyway...

    EVERYBODY seems to agree that killing The Mad King was a good thing... but they still give **** to the one guy who did it.

    And I know I know... he "broke his oath"... well that's just stupid.

    So all those people are stupid.

    Like any fervent believer he is blinded by his religious beliefs. His brother called him on it and knew him better than any. A religious prig and a closeted gay...brothers who were divided by their beliefs. It's fascinating how closely this all clings to current events despite the original books being written a decade ago. Stannis tried to confess to his bigamy and his wife forgave and CONGRATULATED him. You can't turn your back on anyone here. Even the most loathesome character has righteous motives.

    It's little touches like that that as a book-reader, I enjoy. In the books, it's actually a song sung by another character, one of her companions that appears to have been cut from the series. Not a big loss in terms of the story, but dropping in one of his "things" is a nice nod and acknowledgement.
