I didn't like the ending with this "Dany" rising from the pyre. That link of the story is the weakest. It's still bearable of course, but almost completely uninteresting. The rest of the episode was stunning however. I'm giving it 8/10. As a comparison, the first episode was given 10/10 by me and the series as a whole 9.5/10. But with the death of Ned and the introduction of dragon whelps, I feel a bit pessimistic about season 2. Even though a love dragons I must say that very few TV-shows and films have succeeded in making dragons into anything else than what only small boys can appreciate. Hopefully they'll handle this better in GoT and if that'll be the case I'm sure it'll turn epic!
