It was in the last episode that I started getting annoyed with the Talisa situation but in this one, there are way too many things bothering me. *Renly's death and Loras' reaction. He should have gone mad *Arya revealing that she is from the North. What would a Northern girl be doing in the Riverlands?? The North is still safe and away from the fighting, why would she be inprisonned? She could have easily said that she was from Riverrun, that sigil she must know. The way they played it makes for more interesting TV but it completely unrealistic. Also, Arya becomes what she becomes because she is a little girl that always has to live through horrors. Being a cupbearer in Harrenhal seems like a holiday compared to her experience in the books *Bran's story seems completely cut off... *Quarth - I hope that they are keeping this for a future episode but I do hope that Dany will meet Quaithe and get her warnings. If they only leave it ot a Jorah - Quaithe meeting, that would be such a pity. and my biggest problem is with Jon: it is painful to realize that we are halfway through the season and he's barely had any speaking time. He's shown in group shots, staring at things, listening. Even Sam talks more than him! Also, what were the writers thinking letting him go off scouting without finding the dragonglass and giving Sam a blade??
