There was something I found rather perplexing. Tywin's facial expressions. Was he smirking at some points? I can't recall if the books ever mentioned Tywin's expressions throughout the whole farce of the dwarven jousting (and Joffrey's tantrums) but I imagined that he would have disapproved of it (though not openly).
I think this was the best episode of the season so far. All the little details they dropped in here and there. Reminded me of Season 1 which conveyed a lot of information about the lore and characters through dialogue. I will need to rewatch season 2 though. For some reason, the whole Ygritte loving Jon feels abrupt in the TV series?
