I gave it a 9, although I agree, I did not like the Ros/Pycelle scene, and yes it was a waste. I did not like the the LF and Varys scene. Last but not least, I did not like the Cercei and Lancel scene. All three could have been left out. My husband is a none reader and he was getting a little confused, with reason. The last scene with Dany and the dragons was well done.
