Gave it a 9, my favorite episode of the season so far. Finally Benjen returns and we get Edmure too and mentions of the Blackfish and the Brotherhood w/o Banners. Randyll Tarly was every bit of the dick I expected him to be and Sam taking his sword was a nice comeuppance. I liked how the Tyrell vs. Faith turned out, Tommen actually played it smarter than his parents would and now have the love of the smallfolk. Arya leaving the HoBW was a good surprise and I hope she kills the waif. And Dany is at her best when she is giving speeches in Dothraki. And all that w/o having to resort to the lazy D&D way of advancing the plot by killing off someone. I honestly thought this episode would've been better received, but I should've known better.
