Littlefinger is higher in titles and so on...but Varys is doing a lot more than is obvious at the moment. Its one of the best reveals really. I kinda wish I didnt know it was coming. He and Littlefinger have everyone else on strings. Littlefinger is more dangerous than Tywin and nobody can tell.

And yes id be a Littlefinger/varys type hopefully not being seen imposing my will from the shadows. I try to have Ned like honor but id have hoed up long before my head was taken.

Can someone explain the end to me? Why was Littlefinger's prostitute killed? How did she betray him? I can't remember.....

She'd been spying for Varys. The whole bit of information about Littlefinger having two beds in his boat originated from her.

She told Varys that Littlefinger was planning on taking Sansa with him when he left.

Called that bitch a "bad investment"

I had a fight with a guy I call BeMadz, and you were kinda like a silent Don King in the matter. Well played sir, well played.

After 3 seasons, this is the only episode I can say was a big letdown. Way boring and the pacing was off. Even the shots were amateurish. The Robb Stark scene was long and pointless. Theon's scene was bordering on NC-17 stuff. Osha's backstory is useless in the grand scheme of things. Hell, everyone acted weird, even Daenerys wasn't her normal self. Jaime and Brienne's scenes saved the episode, as a matter of fact the Bear fight rocked.

Last few episodes been boring as hell. Only parts I enjoy are Dany's. Those dragons are getting bigger with each episode. Can't wait to see how they take that city.

Did that guy seriously cut off Theon's manhood? I have no idea wtf the point of his storyline is, will it actually lead to something relevant?

Yea I was waiting for the episode to "take off", but it remained grounded in its slow painful pace and useless dialogue.

I was actually motioning to my television during the Robb Stark love scene to speed it up. Not sure I've ever done that in the history of television.

I almost just moved it forward myself on the DVR. Pointless and over-the-top dramatic.

And, the Theon scenes... They're getting a bit repetitive and tiresome. I understand attempting to be true to the books, but how many more torture scenes are we going to have to endure? It is taking up valuable time in a short season.

As you said, the Jamie scenes were good and I enjoyed Daenerys and her ridiculous army/dragons as usual... And also enjoyed Tywin/Joffrey and Margaery/Sansa.

But, damn... Lots of wasted time this week and needless dramatics.

is it just me or are the producers trying to fit too many characters and story arcs into each episode now? it's like we're getting tiny tidbits about each arc but nothing dramatic. i feel like the first 2 seasons were much more cohesive
