    Double slap! Once with poo, once by Tyrion! That made this ep by itself!

    I also was in full agreement with that wildling girl when she called Jon Snow an idiot.

    Where was Ser Jorah in all of this? Is he out trying to find Dany some ships? I'll eat my hat if that was him stealing the dragons at the end. I'm thinking somehow the spice trader guy was involved. He seemed mighty interested in the dragons earlier, and he conveniently kept Dany waiting extra long while the dragons were being taken.

    Didn't Ned Stark say something in the first episode or two about not ordering something you wouldn't be willing to do yourself? (Before he executed the watch guy who'd run from the wall)

    Theon being willing to do it himself should have come across as a point of strength. But he screwed it up by being mildly indecisive about doing it after being prompted and then by making such a mess of the actual execution. Hacking a neck apart is hardly the clean quick execution that might have rebounded that whole mess slightly to his favor.

    I was thinking that for a savage that begged to become an indentured servant she has unusually good hygiene not to mention her neatly trimmed hoo-hoo.

    Funny! Same thing. I noticed the teeth, too. Wildings also have great dental care.

    The Stark men have a real weakness with killing women warriors.

    I should ask why the night's watch feels the need to wipe out those guys. You could see it like "I Am Legend" where the wildings are just trying to survive and get along and these guys dressed in black keep attacking them.

    This is why I'm not going to read the books until the HBO series is finished. I want to see this story. I'll read the other story later.

    He certainly doesn't swing a sword like Ned Stark or Illyn Payne. The beheading was brutal. In the ew.com recap I loved this quote:
    The first ten minutes was great and again, I thought the hour flew by. I'll probably rewatch tonight to see what I missed the first time.

    Put me down in the: The note is unrelated to Littlefinger, camp. It was just one of many papers there and she noticed it had her brother's name in it.

    Littlefinger would be betraying Joffrey and Cersei if he told Tywin about Arya, no?

    I don't think Littlefinger cares who he betrays. If he recognized Arya then he is only keeping it a secret because it will benefit him in some way.

    I agree he's in it for himself, but that means staying alive first. Betraying Joffrey and Cersei isn't necessarily a good way to stay alive.

    Although betraying them to the man who is their boss in fact if not on the org chart could be an excellent way to stay alive (remember that both Cersei and Joffrey fear Tywin enough to accept Tyrion, whom they both loathe, as Hand, even though Joffrey could easily have Tyrion executed and appoint his favorite horse as Hand, and even though Tywin is hundreds of miles away).

    I think it was that warlock dude. He is trying to get Dany to come to them.

    He'll use the secret as another way to make another run at his lifelong love, Catelyn.

    Why did Osha have to sleep with Theon? It would have made sense if she was going to slit his throat but if her goal was to sneak them out after he fell asleep then what was the point?
