[No Spoilers] So Ros got a promotion

"Do you have any idea how ridiculous you sound?"
It felt like a wink and nod to the general critism that scene got last year. Sort of an, 'ok we get it' moment.
She is clearly loyal to LIttlefinger, evidenced last season when she was spying on the Pycelle.
I think she's an interesting addition.

Theres a lot of hate on Ros in the other topics in this forum, but I like her. She'll probably be the version of Chataya. She's hot too which is a plus.

She got fat. So no more Ros nude scenes. Only pretty bodies can get naked on TV. I guess they still like the actress, though, so they let her keep a clothed part.

I completely agree. I really liked the juxtaposition of the playful Ros with the murdering of the bastards, and thought it was a nice way to transition the scene rather than simply showing the bastards being killed.

We've learned all sorts of really delicious secret stuff via Ros and her journey from a simple whore outside Winterfell to a fancy paid courtesan style prostitute working for Littlefinger. She's obviously always been smarter than the average whore and has attracted many higher ranked players in the game (Theon, Tyrion, Pycelle) so it stands to reason she's working her way into the inner management of Littlefinger's establishment.
I like it. I approve of her use as a sexposition tool for details the non-book-reading fans need to know about.

But you're spot on about the upcoming criticism. I can hear the outcry concerning your "hilarious detail" all over the place.
There was a lot of criticism last season for that scene with the exact words "gratuitous sexposition" used repeatedly. Personally I think its because the scene was so well done and graphic with the two girls that many people squirmed uncomfortably (which I think it was meant to do) and Littlefinger's dialogue matched the frenzied pitch of the 'climax' really well. If that scene didn't get across to viewers just how ruthlessly driven Lord Baelish is for his 'end game' reward, I surely don't know what would.
Ros has had some of the most awkwardly exposing sex scenes in the entire series and she's done it perfectly. I think people dislike her purely on principle that she 'wasn't in the books' (which is somewhat of a lame excuse) and not because they think she is somehow stealing the show. She doesn't. Her parts have tied together many loose strings very nicely... quite literally.
