First time I've ever given an episode a six. The episode is too marred by stupidity. Lorch's hokey death, Tywin's nonsensical complaints about that damned letter as if Lorch's stuck it in the wrong envelope.... it was very, very lazy writing. Which is a shame, because those first ten minutes stands up there with the any ten minutes in the series to date. Brilliant adaptation, the Theon bits.
This. Gave it a 6 as well, before I read this, but I agree with everything you wrote in this thread.

Oh, and again, glad we didnt get any useless sex scenes... hope they will continue this way, the first part of the season was really spoiling too much time for it and eating time for other stories... hope this is over !
Book-Osha: "fuck the Starks and their kitchen, give me a spear", kicks guy in the nuts and takes his spear, earns Theon's trust. Badass.
TV-Osha: "fuck the Starks and their kitchen, give me a spear". TV-Theon: "lol no". TV-Osha: "fine then, look at my boobies!" Theon: "lol k". Lame.

The maddest thing about some of the book-purist nerd-rage on the forum is when they start ranting about all the naked people on TV.
They did read the same books as the rest of us, right?

I see a lot of complaints about "major" deviations. If Rodrick dies, does it really matter it Theon swung the sword or if Ramsay did?
Obvious strawman is obvious, hardly anyone has complained about this
scene. I find the strawman dishonest quite telling though, and unfortunately really typical.
