Opening with the fall of Winterfell caught me by surprise. I did like Alfie Allen's petulant "I took it" as if he has to prove it even to Bran.

Ser Rodrik is killed by Ramsay Snow/Bolton in the book, so this was a change (how much of one to the general story in the north we shall see). It was pretty fitting for him to take more than one stroke though (although Ser Rodrik probably wishes otherwise ;p)

So we got Arya's second name. I have to admit I wouldn't mind a clip show of Jaqen killing people in random/hillarious ways.

I was speaking about the way he was killed. I thought there was someone Theon he had tried to behead and he had trouble and got pissed. Yes I do remember Ramsay killing Ser Rodrik. Did not expect to see him die so quickly, however I understand they have to speed things up and keep it fairly simple for some people. I have had to look at this show seperately from the books and just enjoy it although there have been changes. But having read the books first does give you a better understanding of what is going on.

And he'll be pleased to reclaim Winterfell /devil.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':devil:' />

I was speaking about the way he was killed.


Edit: misread it.

He executes Farlen in the books.

He could not let the killings go unpunished. Farlen was as likely a suspect as any, so Theon sat in judgment, called him guilty, and condemned him to death. Even that went sour. As he knelt to the block, the kennelmaster said, “M’lord Eddard always did his own killings.” Theon had to take the axe himself or look a weakling. His hands were sweating, so the shaft twisted in his grip as he swung and the first blow landed between Farlen’s shoulders. It took three more cuts to hack through all that bone and muscle and sever the head from the body,


Also, editing posts is a PITA
