Given some of the previous first episode's to the season, I thought this was one of the better one's. There seemed to be less 'obligatory recap' and more setting up for this season. The Good: I liked seeing hints of vulnerable Dany, the stroppy bitch-queen persona was starting to grate. The tension when Dany went to see her dragons was good. Woah those things got big! Mance was great and I enjoyed Stannis. i still want to punch Sweetrobin, but I'm guessing that is the point. The Bad: Not a fan of Darth Sansa. Alayne from the books is supposed to be free, 'bastard brave' but here Sansa is pretty grim and miserable. I'm guessing with the hint from the trailers that Sansa is going to Winterfell that they are simplifying the Harry-Sansa, fArya-Ramsey stories by combining them. It's a shame, I would have really liked to see some of the Vale stuff. Since when did Brienne get so grouchy! They have turned my two favorite characters into sour-pusses. The Ugly: How many naked man-butts were there this episode! Is this D and D's quest for equality?
