I was surprised when someone pointed out that four plotlines were totally absent: Jaime/Brienne, Arya, Theon, and Bran. I didn't even notice, but thinking about it I feel like the episode was more coherent for having comparatively few stories. They could have gone further, and dropped Robb, Catelyn, and Talisa, without hurting the episode at all.
I didn't notice much either, although it was a curious choice of an episode title, considering they didn't include the Arya storyline at all.
