Patience, grasshopper /smile.png' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':)' /> I'm sure the idea will occur to them (read: Bran).

I really love the scene with Ygritte and John. I think that she is a wonderful actress! They have great chemistry together, too.

How do you love it? It is beyond uncharacteristic for Lord Tywin.

I really like Rose Leslie as Ygritte.

Arya's getting herself into trouble with Tywin, not sure I quite buy it this week (Tywin seems a little too fatherly/friendly this time) but I still like the two of them sharing scenes.

I was also pleased by the BwB mention and Roose continuing to drop hints about torturing people. Also, Lord Karstark returns!

Additionally, did he just imply that he knows who she is?

I enjoy it because it is uncharacteristic. She is not his daughter, but Arya reminds him of her. Arya is intelligent, and an interesting distraction for him. I can see this happening, under the right circumstances. He is involved in a war and he is excited and riding high. These conversations are stressless to him. They work.

The show is really deviating from the books. Jeyne Westerling is worth losing a kingdom over.

Valid point. But personally, I am not pleased with their relationship.

So they changed Jaime's escape. I can't say I understand why he had to kill Alton rather than just beat him up but maybe I'm missing something. I guess chains aren't the most precise of weapons.

Hmm and now Pyat/Xaro plotting together....and wiping out the leadership of Qarth(!) I do have to admit I'm looking forward to the House of the Undying now.

edit: so was the jailer one of Karstark's sons?

edit2: I guess he was, that's sort of stupid as a change but eh. Good choice of cliffhangers (will be interesting to see if non-readers buy the last one), looks like Jon's storyline is really being altered though.

Did I misunderstand? Did it say only 2 more episodes left?
