Grey Worm didn’t die??? That’s great!

Wait, Dany is going to feed the leaders to her dragons? But they didn’t have anything to do with the Sons of the Harpy! (Right?) So she’s given up on justice and is going for vengeance now?

The Walkers have been coming since Season 1 and they still haven’t come yet.

Amidst all the politicking, I find it funny that the show takes time to sidetrack to Stannis correcting a Watchman’s grammar.

Does Sansa realise how much danger she is in?

That Myranda has very bony hips. And apparently she and Ramsay like their sex rough.

I sincerely pray that Sansa will never find herself in any trouble.

AANNNNDDDD in the next moment she could have gotten herself into trouble. I was on tenterhooks when Myranda suddenly creep-ed on her. Sansa, you’ve got to stop following strangers into dark places especially when you’re in the enemy’s stronghold! (Didn’t know that Sansa made her own dresses though.) I thought that she would find the burnt bodies of “Bran” and “Rickon”, but it’s Theon, whom I forgot she hasn’t seen yet, though he has seen her.

I thought Ramsay was going to chop off Theon’s hand or something equally horrible, but he’s going for the kind approach. He really has “psychopath” down to a pat!

Sansa still retains a defiant spark in the face of her enemies. I fear for her life.

So Roose Bolton lets Ramsay run wild for most of that AWFUL family dinner, and then gives him a warning at the end with news that he is going to have another heir. Love Sansa’s smirk, but I think it’s too daring. After she marries him, he could do anything to her! :S

I suppose socio/psychopaths can always tell when people are cut from the same cloth.

Stannis is leaving so soon? Too soon, I say! I foresee his campaign failing. What with him insisting on bring his wife and daughter along.

Daenerys just ups and decides to marry a random ancient leader of the city just like that? That is so… pragmatic of her.

Jorah and Tyrion, bonding through poetry.

What is The Doom?

The Stone Men fight was thrilling! For a moment there I thought Tyrion was lost.

Oh no, Ser Jorah! :'( I knew you couldn’t have gotten out of that encounter unscathed!
