Re: Game of Thrones 3.2 - "Dark Wings, Dark Words" - Rate and discuss

Another solid-to-strong episode. The Catelyn scene was terrible and embarrassing (though well-performed by Fairley given what it was), but I was prepared for it from the early reviews, and I've pretty much given up on the King in the North storyline ever being appropriate to the setting, free of cliches, or remotely interesting. Otherwise, I thought everything worked. I'd been concerned about the Queen of Thorns from early reviews-- it sounded like they might have watered her down-- but even though Rigg's version is more cynical and less exuberant in her sharpness than the book character, I think it works. And the Margaery/Joffrey scene made me think for the first time that the increased emphasis on her character might actually work.
