Tonight's episode was awesome...easily my favorite of the season. The show keeps getting better as they introduce more characters. Their writers are really good...the dialogue is fresh but they're keeping it interesting with a lot of subtle references to events for people who've read the books. I loved the Jaime-Ned scene in front of the Iron Throne. It was the best of the episode, if not the season...but the Robert-Lancel-Jaime-Selmy* scene was epic...the old Nan scene was great...really the only scene that was a bit off a letdown was the last scene with Syrio, but the fading shot of Ned redeemed it. The first few episodes were good, but they showed their teeth tonight with a bit of grit.
