One thought I have: The actress playing Asha (still not calling her Yara) is awful. She delivers every single line in a monotone, even when she's supposed to be sarcastic or playful, which Asha in the books is frequently.

Overall I liked it, lotsa sex and gore lol... telescoping Arya's story made sense and works well I think.

I actually like Asha so far. She seems to have a drollness about her that I picked up in the book.

I thought this was the best of the season so far. We finally met Renly, Brienne had a great entrance, and Tyrion was at the top of his game. Arya's story, truncated from the books as it is, works well. (Though I wish I could have hear Hot Pie's battle cry.)

It was one of the best episodes of the series so far, very well written and very well shot. Hard to pick a favorite scene ...
Bryan Cogman should write more episodes.

P.S. Natalie Dormer is hot.

Her name is Yara, your refusal to use the name is ridiculous. It's not like Asha had some super secret special meaning that's lost by changing the name, it's Yara in the show, deal with it.

Great episode, but I really wish they would show less of Tyrion, does he really need that many scenes in every episode? I know he's popular, but they could use some if his screentime for other characters, most of his scenes with Shae are pointless for example, show them together once every three episodes, that should be more than enough. This episode I would have liked to see more of Renly, Loras and Margaery.

Yara has an R in it and it fits her wild nature much better.

A fantastic episode. Possibly the best to date. I loved, loved, loved The scene with Renly and his wife.

Natalie Dormer would get it.

Loved the episode, Brienne and Margery great entrance. I love how Margery is all okay with Renley, and she knows this is all a giant game and still still wants to have a King inside of her. Loved Tyrion's deception
