There are some serious events coming up. The build is a bit slow but the payoff is something serious. And it will be this season.

If it follows the books there will be some solid Tywin/Joffrey/Tyrion shit too.

Should be an amazing 3 episodes.

How? If anything, it should be more understood why he was acting the way he was acting towards Ned. Only thing bad he did was push Bran out of the tower...

Well people are scared shitless of Tywin Lannister and also know he's ridiculously rich. It's not like Jaimie has a lot of options. When someone has your life in their hands it's not the time to be a hero(not that he could) so he appeals to their biggest emotions fear and greed.

Sansa is so clueless.

Sansa: So did your mother teach you?

Margarey: ... Yes my mother taught me.

lol

Dany is so overpowered now it seems like she could take Westeros easily. I haven't read the books so this is baseless speculation but I think she has to lose her dragons eventually, so that the story will have some balance when she hits Westeros. Westeros is no match for her currently.

Also is it just me or does Esso seem much richer and more powerful than Westeros. All of the cities in Esso look super impressive. Is Esso supposed to be more powerful than Westeros? have they ever tried to invade Westeros or vice versa.

I think Stannis' army would be able to stop her. If the dragons get big tho nothing can stop her.

I'm officially ready for Tywin to bitch slap Joffrey right on the Iron Throne. He needs to learn who's boss.

According to those who have read the books, her army isn't all that huge in respect to that of Stannis and/or Robb Stark. Obviously, dragons change the equation and her soldiers do seem a bit more badass than the ordinary infantrymen.

But, raw numbers? I don't think it is a huge army.

she aint powerful enough. westeros has more infantrymen, lannisters and highgarden alliance really solidifies the throne for now. the dragons need to grow more still.

Pretty amusing history of Tywin Lannister for anyone who wants details on his past that I doubt the show has time to cover:
