The monologue by Littlefinger was pure Game of Thrones and the fate of Ros was heartbreaking. Such sad stuff.

Above average. I was sort of expecting that Melisandre would end up coming for Gendry, seeing as how the siege of Storm's End was cut out of last season. I think this change works for the better, since Edric Storm was pretty much a non-character. Was interesting to see Melisandre and Thoros meet and talk shop. Surprised they killed off Ros already, but not sorry to see her go. The dinner scene with Roose Bolton was fun (I had forgotten they put Brienne in a dress .) Anyone else think he (Roose) looked a little like Daniel Craig there? Overall though, felt like lots of treading water here, especially the Sam, Bran, and Theon scenes.

Sort of an average episode until the last 5 minutes... then damn. Shocking, beautiful score, beautiful direction... just awesome.

Diana Rigg UST flirting with Charles Dance, while teasing him about whether he'd ever sampled bumming - I'm not tripping, so it must be this week's best scene in Game Of Thrones, when they've finally put the two biggest fucking scene stealers in a scene together...

And Thoros and Beric's back story, told by Thoros, was tear-jerking...

Now Varys and Littlefinger are having a good scene too... "chaos is a ladder."

And Joffrey's still a psycho cunt - with just one wordless but horrible scene at the end that's fucking freaking me out a bit - who deserves a really shitty end.

Lovely last shot though

I'm a little surprised to see so much sadness at Ros' death. Ros was such a non-character for me that I didn't even realize who the dead woman was until I read this thread.

Sansa said it: Joffrey is a monster.

A snivelling and cowardly monster. A regular little shit.

What? Shown killed like *that* by someone like *him*? Does it even fucking *matter* who the character was?

(Yeah, I know this show does a lot of nasty stuff, but I know someone just like her)

The first time I watched the show I thought she was nine different prostitutes.

But truly that is the mark of an excellent whore, no?
