I think the whole Cersi/Taena thing was about power, control and trying to get over Jamie. Taena was the only person Cersi was remotely close to at the time after falling out with Jamie, she was only sleeping with Osney Kettleblack to manipulate and Lancel had gone all weird and religous. saying that it still does feel a little contrived.
Personally I was sure Taena is just a mole of the Tyrells. The Royce girl who talked with Sansa on the way from the Eyrie to the castle below told Sansa that Riverrun was taken, but Dragonstone was not. As I understood it, Dragonstone fell before Riverrun, so I was sure Loras actually just took the Redwyne fleet and went off to fight the Iron Born, and everything was just a scam to quiet Cersei.
Anyway, regarding ridiculous moments: Indeed, I think the shadow demon was kind of a lazy way to get rid of Renly.. I too hate all the Meereen business, although did enjoy the crones "and one" bidding
* Biter eating Brinnie was kind of a shocker, what the hell is this psychotic creature :S
* Theon's scene of meeting Asha was hysterical, really enjoyed it
* Beric Dondarrion's resurrections are quite nuking the fridge, that Thoros of Myr dude got some skiilz, could teach a thing or two to Melisandre..
