Goodness me, is this gonna be FUN!!!

I was hoping we'd at least get to see them set sail tonight, and the banter is already classic.

The show's casting has been really fantastic w/regards to finding actors that work really well in these one-on-one conversations.

Pretty much this. I hope they do justice to this adventure J & B go on, because they certainly struck gold with the actors!

It was really nice to see their interaction. 3rd season in terms of fun will be nice, at least concerning them.

I did enjoy that scene. Unfortunately, it will prolly be their last this season.

I'm guessing they'll wind up in Roose Bolton's camp, since Jaime is apparently held in camps now instead of castles. The only highlight is that we might get to see Ruby Ford.

I still think they can have the Goat simply as a sellsword who changed sides offscreen

They are supposed to have at least 1 scene in episode 10.

I still can't believe they found someone to play Brienne. She is just perfect for the role. Just an awesome awesome combination that is going to be.

Jaime's arc for Season 2 will end with his hand getting chopped off. It's too good of a cliffhanger to pass up on, and it seems to be at the perfect pace to happen in episode 10.

Eh, I dunno. It might just feels like a lot to squeeze in since I can't see them getting much time next week.

Thought the scene was awesome, though. Good chemistry, which is pretty much the most important thing and Jaime being fairly Jaimelike.

I think this season will end with them being captured but we won't know by who. We'll probably think it's either Robb's forces or the Karstarks. He'll get his hand cut off episode one next season when it turns out to be some variant on the Bloody Mummers associated with Roose.

I'm totally accepting of the fact that the Game of Thrones series and ASOIAF books are two separate entities and that the show will deviate from the books in certain areas. That being said, as a reader of the books, I love it when a scene brings the pages to life so to speak...when it plays out exactly how I pictured it when reading the novels.

Theon's homecoming to Pyke and subsequent chastisement by his father was one such scene for me.

This episode's Jaime/Brienne interaction was another.

I think they just get captured too since they didn't hire any of the actors who would be involved in jaimies hand getting cut off. Plus you might as well make season 3 as awesome as possible.

Best part of the episode. Been looking forward to this arc for a long time and it's off to a great start.

I'd prefer to see the series end with some version of the Stark / Tully river pursuit and Brienne fighting them off, with Jaime then deciding to pull her back into the boat again and not hit her over the head with his oar. That's the point at which he starts to notice some of her good qualities, like how calm she is in a crisis. They could then just disappear downriver again, leaving Series 3 to deal with their capture and the loss of Jaime's hand, which would be a great ending to Ep 1 or 2 of Series 3.

(edited for typos)

That's a good point, I had forgotten about the river chase, which is too good to pass up.

NCW perfectly captures Jaime's arrogant sense of humor. Plus he's very very hot. D & D, please don't cut his hot tub scene next season! Gwendoline Christie just keeps getting better. Hopefully she gets her name in the opening credits next year.
