    I'll have a ton of comments, as usual :)

    But first, a question: if being in the Kingsguard is such a bad thing, why did Tywin allow Jaime to be one?

    Jaime joined when he was very young, too young in fact to realize the Mad King offered him a spot on the Kingsguard to insult Tywin. It was Jaime's decision to join.

    Did anyone else get the sense Orell wanted Jon Snow to die? I guess he realizes the same thing Ygritte does.

    I didn't get that sense. He doesn't believe that Jon has turned. But he cut the rope purely to save his own skin, IMO.

    2 scenes that are left to our imagination. One (Tyrion telling Sansa the news) is sorely missed. The second (Joffery murdering Roz), I'm very glad they skipped.

    I also enjoyed Tyrion's attempt to get Shae out of the room, "Sometimes we hear things that we might have wanted to hear under different circumstances without other people in the room..."

    Although there's no way that could have been as awkward on the screen as it was in our heads, and it would have taken a long time...I think they made the economical choice, in a show where they have so %@^# much to get through in ten short hours.

    I guess it's not going to be the wedding she dreamed of... :D
    Another very economical choice...it's amazing how little screen time Joffrey had this week, and yet how much they were able to do with him in just a few seconds.

    Yeah it was a great way to remind us all how much we hate him.

    At least now things are making more sense regarding Winterfell and Theon. Bolton is clearly playing both sides. He seems ready to make his move.

    So it makes sense that he burned Winterfell and is now torturing Theon. If his bastard can hunt and capture the 2 Stark boys, he will have some significant chips to bargain with.

    One thing that hasn't become clear to me.

    Do Robb and Catelyn think the two youngest boys are alive or dead? Do they "know" that Theon supposedly killed them?

    Definitely. Not to mention, anyone of them, including Snow would have done the same thing. So if they're upset, and we'll see, it would be ridiculous.

    Yes, they know, or think they do anyway.

    I don't understand the answer, so here's mine: as far back as last episode, Cat and her uncle talked about how Cat thinks the boys are dead and Robb is hoping that they are not.

    So as far as they "know", they got the message that the boys are dead. Cat believes it, Robb refuses to believe it and is hoping for a miracle.

    I was really hoping that Arya would make it to Riverrun this episode.

    I hope the Theon torture scenes end up having some importance. Frankly, I'm tired of Theon's subplot.

    Is it just me or are the Danerys scenes the only once where something significant actually seems to be happening as opposed to people mostly standing around talking?

    Oh, and at least now Tyrion knows who ordered that Kingsguard to kill him!

    +1 - Getting bored of Theon too - I think it has been going on for 3 episodes and we are no further into the reason behind why he is being held.

    In the end, where we see a tearful Sansa and a ship sailing away, who is on that ship? Loras?

    I assumed Loras, and hopefully Cercei too!

    Neither. Littlefinger offered Sansa a chance to escape King's Landing, but she turned it down thinking she would be wed to Loras. Once Tyrion told her what was really happening, she started to cry because she realized what a mistake she had made.

    Same here! I was yelling at the TV, "Kill him already, and put him out of my misery!"
