I was sort of bored by this episode compared to last.
the midget show for Joffrey was a bit too focused on imo, like it dragged a little there. I'm assuming there is no way Tyrion could be behind it if it isn't obvious. No way they could have accounted for Joffrey picking on Tyrion like that and making him his cup bearer, so unless that scene was done differently than the book, it was by lucky chance and not intended by the conspirators to make Tyrion the scapegoat for Joffrey's murder.
I don't even understand half of the reactions to Joffrey at that event. Its like 3/4's of them were offended but then its like the other 1/4, mostly Cerseii, who don't seem to care that everyone is so offended and with so much tension. Watching all of their faces shouldn't Cerseii be smarter than letting her son act like that, and make everyone uncomfortable, including her father and everyone else? I get she dislikes Tyrion but i swear the way she operates makes no sense, like she is just asking to be overthrown. these females act so dumb on this show where they're just asking for everyone to make them their enemy, and be overthrown.
No Arya-Hound, little Dany if at all, not even much Wildlings/wall stuff, really made this episode rather boring imo.
Cersei is about 1/100th as smart as she thinks she is. To me, that was on display once again, as it has been throughout the series. Anyone with any perspective at all could see how buffoonish that whole scene was, at best. But, she has no perspective. Her whole world is clouded by spite and vindictiveness.
