Yes, I truly did not realize how completely horrid the little s&$) Joffrey is. I knew he was bad, but Gleeson just hammers that point home brilliantly. This episode does a great job of defining the dramatic tension and keeping it simple. There are so many intricate, rich subtleties in the books that we forget the simple, powerful central story. Also, Robb's dire wolf is massive! I was shocked to see the size of that beast. I'm glad they went the extra mile and made them as unnaturally large as they are in the books, a tough feat for TV!
