The vague mistrust of LF by all the characters in GoT is extremely hard to get across without POV especially when the only proper move he makes is at the end. "The scene" was good at showing he wasn't trustworthy, but didn't reveal more than that. You don't know who's side he'll be on. Same with Theon, you know that he isn't completely Stark but not to the extent that he's going to do what he does.

no one is saying to not build up characters, what i'm saying is don't ONLY focus on the things that are going to be of importance to the plot later, because it draws too much attention to them. in the case of pycelle, the plot development IS that he's with a whore. it's the reveal, through tyrions eyes, that pycelle is not merely an old fool, but is actively and intentionally dirty. that wad has already been shot now, and to little effect, maybe a chuckle. with regard to theon, his status as a ward isn't important (season 1), but that's not to say that bringing it up wouldn't be a good idea. but, in my opinion, bringing it up EVERY time we see the poor guy is pushing it too far. tyrion rubs it in his face, maester luwin reminds him of it, ros rubs it in his face, rob rubs it in his face, maester luwin AGAIN reminds him of his status in the stark household. it's not until the end of the season, when theon pledges his loyalty (gods only know why he would given all we've seen) to rob, that he actually gets some screen time without being taken down a peg by a member of the stark household/whore.

Other than that though it was pretty good. The killing of Robert's Bastards worked really well and Ros discovered clothes!

Her repeating Littlefinger's words to her when she first joined his whore house is just a clever way of saying she's now worked her way up the corporate ladder and is now in charge (managing) the place while Littlefinger's busy screwing with the throne.

This is just a technical gripe but her scenes are ALWAYS louder than the rest and she's ALWAYS having sex or around it... It's just the worst to be watching the show with the volume up a little, speakers on, and all of a sudden it sounds like your watching a porno.

I completely agree - I live in an Apartment and this really bugs me.
Another thing - the fact that LF was spying in on little peep holes kinda bugged me seemed out of character from what i imagined.

LF is no common pervert, he is a devious schemer bound for great things!!

I know right! On top of that people excel, literally excel at walking into the room the two seconds such a scene takes place.
As for Ros, I didn't recognize her at first, she looks so different! Her face looks like it's been stuffed. She's a good actress so I respect that, but many of her scenes seem kinda pointless from a 'I've read the books' kinda viewpoint. Which means I can imagine so-far-non-readers do have a need for her as a narrative device. Still there's something I appreciate about her presence I can't quite put my finger on. Maybe it's just that it's interesting to have a commoner as an actual character as well, because these people are after all also getting involved.
