I gave it a 9, compared to the 7s I gave the last two episodes. This one I felt is the best I've seen so far. After the blistering pace of the last couple of episodes, it was nice to have an episode where things toned back and we finally got some of the exposition and character development that had been missing for new comers to the show. I like how they managed to hit most of the key plot points, even if a few characters were changed around, and scenes were changed to do it within the bounds of the show. Basically with this episode I felt like I got everything I would have wanted out of it, where the last two definitely felt more rushed to me. The one thing that did bug me was we didn't see a confrontation between Ned and Robert, but I guess that's coming.
