    Craster stabbed in the throat, Lord Commander Mormont stabbed in the back, many of the remaining Night's Watch men in rebellion, and Sam fleeing with Gilly and her son. Who knew Sam had some of the hero in him?

    Margaery just about has Joffrey eating out of her hand, and it looks like she will soon have Sansa doing the same -- suggesting Sansa might have Loras is genius!

    Arya accusing the Hound of murder and Beric Dondarrion to be the champion to fight the Hound in a trial by combat.

    Littlefinger has two featherbeds to be placed on the ship with him. Is he planning on taking Sansa with him? If so, at least she would appear to get her own bed.

    Varys has the sorcerer, who castrated him as a boy, confined in a box. As Varys said, patience is helpful in plotting revenge. And now Varys is plotting with Olenna Tyrell.

    Tywin Lannister says he is doing everything he can to rescue Jaime. But all he appears to be doing is sitting at his desk and writing. Tywin does not trust Cersei because she is not as smart as she thinks she is, and she fails to control Joffrey.

    One-handed Jaime is ready to lie down and die when he finds he cannot fight worth a damn with his left hand. But Brienne is grateful to Jaime for saving her from rape (or she still plans to trade him for the Stark girls), and she bullies Jaime into choosing to live.

    Theon is back where he started, tied to the cross. It seems Theon has no friends left (if he ever had any).

    Daenerys could speak High Valyrian all along, and it did not require much patience for her to get revenge on the nasty slave master, who learned, for a brief moment, that a dragon is not a slave. And Daenerys has a loyal army, marching with all three dragons flying overhead.

    What a great episode.

    I find myself looking forward to the Daenerys segments the most.

    Daenerys Stormborn, please marry me.

    The last six minutes of this episode were f'n awesome. Hair standing up on the back of the neck awesome. Go kick some ass, girl!

    Crap, now I find myself feeling sorry for Jaimie.

    huh...I find her plot to be the most predictable. Well done, mind you, but very predictable.

    We've watched Sansa grow before our eyes. Last season we witnessed her first period. Last night, we witnessed her first orgasm! ;)

    This was such a great episode. This season is definitely kicking into high gear. Dany's scenes were fantastic, but I loved the entire episode.

    The Theon story keeps getting weirder.

    I'm inclined to think that the guy that sprung him is the Bastard who was sent to retake Winterfell. The bastard used this escape ploy to kill legit sons of the father, therefore ascending in status. Kind of like Jon Snow killing Robb and Bran (and the little kid), thus making himself heir.

    Only THAT theory doesn't make sense. If there were a legit son available, why would the father have suggested sending his bastard to free Winterfell? he would have sent his son to do the job.

    argh!

    Some random thoughts:

    - Some really fantastic one-on-ones throughout the show. Jaime and Brienne, Varys and Tyrion, Tywin and Cersei, Varys and the old woman (sorry, can't recall the name), Margery and Sansa, Varys and Rose...it was a ton of fun!

    - How good is Margery? The way she plays Joffrey and then is all school girl with Sansa. She can be anyone she wants to be. A true queen. She can even get the people to love joffrey!

    - Theon: your sense of direction sucks.

    - Uh-oh. Arya is not as safe as we thought she was.

    - not about this episode. But I get the feeling that when Mellisandre tells Stanis that he will sit upon the throne, his butt may be on the throne but his head may not be attached to his body.

    - I need to learn more about Pod!

    It could be that the bastard was left back in the North to "hold the fort" while the legitimate sons rode south with Robb, so he was the closest to Winterfell. That's what I got from what Bolton Senior said to Robb, when he proposed sending his bastard. We are sure that the kid who led him back into captivity is the some one who rescued him from both his initial stint on the cross as well as in the forest, right? Combine with Bolton's abuse of Jamie with this and I'm wondering if it isn't part of a Bolton power play.

    Yeah, I'm kind of surprised that the discipline in the Night's watch fell apart so quickly and completely, although Craster did overplay his hand a bit :), combine that with real evidence (as opposed to ghost stories) of White Walkers and I can see how they might panic.

    I think that was Lady Olenna's idea, it was pretty obvious that's what she and Varis were talking about as they wandered the grounds.

    Dany's plot was obvious (to everyone but the slave master) but well executed (pun intended). Although it would have been interesting to know that what they were speaking was High Valerian (insisting that she take the interpreter was a clue there, tho as Dany got a look at her diplomatic skills). You have to admit that the slave master did say the troops were untested and that they should be blooded before they engage in any serious action, so Dany took his advice.

    Maybe we should start calling Pod "Jonny Podd" (70's porno reference)

    Yes. It is the same guy.

    What you are saying makes sense. He could only send the bastard quickly. Then a legit son made it back and took over. The bastard staged a coup of sorts and killed one or more legit son. That's my theory and I'm sticking to it!

    This.

    Hardly seems like there's any Daenerys at all, but what little there is is awesome!

    Another thing that makes no sense: Littlefinger's plan.

    If he was going to marry Lysa, what was he going to do with Sansa? Varys' story doesn't make sense; since he could not marry both. He would not get Winterfell AND the Eyrie in any scenario.

    IOW, Littlefinger's plan, according to Varys, was full of holes. And the old lady should have seen that right away. What am I missing?

    I was just making a joke about her total glee at the thought of marrying Loras :)

    Figured that.

    But I was just about ready to do a second viewing.

    Which one is Loras?

    You're forgetting what we all know about Littlefinger and what Varys knows better than most:

    Littlefinger is a conniving weasel who thinks many steps ahead.

    Varys knows Littlefinger wants power.
    He also knows Littlefinger wants Sansa.

    Sansa could be another path to power.

    It is a logical leap that somehow, someway, Littlefinger will weasel a better position forhimself with Sansa and Lysa both.

    I think he is called the Rose Knight. He is Margery's brother; the gay one who was with...argh...can't remember his name...the one Margery was married to...Stannis' younger brother...

    Renly?

    I agree. I'm just saying that I don't see it. Sansa would be, at best, a bargaining chip. But she is also one that the Lannisters hold very dear; as it is their only path to getting Jaime back. Stealing Sansa away from Tywin would be a very very very bad move for Littlefinger right now.

    If the Lannisters knew that she had been stolen away by Littlefinger.

    Again, a weasel who thinks many steps ahead.
