Guys:

1. Tyrion

2. Jaquen Hagar

3. Tywin

4. Bronn

Gals:

1. Arya

2. Catelyn

3. Brienne

4. Cersei

Creatures

Critters:

Overall, a solid 7 for the first half of the season. Less consistent than S1 but some cool stuff nonetheless. An overview of storylines:

Excellent: Arya's travels & Tyrion's schemes (or plots?)

Good: Renly's love triangle, Robb's war campaign.

Average: Bran's path to treedom & Dany's pointless desert wandering (Quarth redeemed it IMO)

Poor: The Dragonstone characters & the night's watch pointless antarctic wandering.

BTW, the latter categories are not necesarily of a lesser quality because they don't follow the books. I don't judge the series on its faithfulness. Some stuff just doesn't work on screen.

Guys

I. Dinklage (need I explain?)

II. Gleeson (he's got awful to an artform)

III. Allen (hate the character, but he's good at showing turmoil)

Girls

I. Turner (very good at acting with just expressions. very subtle performance)

II. Williams (another one that doesn't need much explanation)

III. Clarke (good change in character... a little more stilted, but I think that fits the situation)

Creatures:

Really?

Honorable mentions:

Dance (sublime contempt played perfectly)

uh, person who plays Stannis. Don't know his name, sorry. (really didn't like the casting at first, but he's grown on me)

Dormer (different from what I expected, but perfect for the character as reimagined)

3. Tie: Bronn / Jorah Mormont

Girls:

1. Arya

2. Irri

3. Dany

Unfortunately, I have been rather disappointed at the casting as I feel many cast actors do no resemble the characters as written or displayed remarkably poor acting performances. I think Lena Headly is a poor Cersei, though I love her in other roles and the Tully sisters were miscast. I suppose the financial incentives provided dictacted as certain number of local actors to be cast, but I feel that many of the castings were off base.
