this slaver guy was an idiot and easy to scheme against and manipulate.

People like Tywin lannister and Littlefinger would have no problem at all getting her to do whatever they want. She has too many weaknesses that can easily be used against her, kind of like Sonny Corleone.

The Unsullied were awesome. Done even better than I'd hoped they'd be. And the dragon was awesome as well. That whole scene was one of the high points of the series to this point.

But I also think this is the second episode in a row that's been rescued a bit by a great ending. The Beric Dondarion / Thoros of Myr group has not been as fullfilling as I'd hoped they'd be based on the novels, but they really haven't gotten to much of their stuff yet. That's been part of the problem, it's just been them wandering through the forest so far with little to no development. But at least the Hound's trial by combat is set up now. So things should be getting better with them.
And Theon and his story arc is one of my favorite things in the books, but it's not reading as well on screen as I'd hoped.

The sorcerer with Varys was a nice addition, while the story is in the books, the actual guy isn't, which gave a nice little twisted touch to Varys. And what Ros has added to the show this season has been a nice way to move the story forward in spots that it wouldn't have worked as well doing it true to the books. She's become something of a narrator for Littlefinger's behind the scenes.

Also, the Tyrell stuff has been great all season. The old bat playing the Queen of Thorns has been perfect, and was again last night.

And the turning of the crows on Mormont was a great moment. That's a spot that could've been chopped down into an episode ending, but you got that and the Dany scene here, so it was a big episode. That didn't play out as shockingly as it did in the books either, but I still felt it was pretty well handled.

Love the production values, the dragons could easily be the worst part of the show if they weren't done right. Instead you get an awesome ending, probably the best five minutes of the whole series so far.

I don't know if she would be a good ruler - she is...kind....but she is the definition of dumb and lucky.

That scene was awesome, better than the book, and plays into what becomes of Varys later.

I've got a question (in WHITE) I can't remember which happens first, Sansa's marriage to Tyrion or her trip to the Aerie with Littlefinger.

I've got a question (in WHITE) How big is Podrick's junk in the books.


It's 14" and it's got a knee joint in it.

Actually:

My memory is that the wedding takes place first, because she was already married when she was heading out to the weirwood to secretly meet with that dopey knight. I could be wrong though. I really need to read them again. I don't remember her coming back once she leaves.
