3/10 My grievances (in no particular order): 1. The Danny crowd-surfing moment was seriously lame, just so, so lame. 2. Sam and Gilly's scene with Bran and his lot was awkward and rushed at best. Leaving out even the mention of Cold Hands was a crucial mistake, and could have helped build up anticipation for season 4. 3. The scene between Varys and Shae was just too much of a reveal for the secret workings of the Spider. Looking back at a season or two ago, when Little Finger and Varys had open discussion as to what they were up to was so out of character for each of them I nearly threw my remote at my TV. Basically the liberties that the folks at HBO are taking are just too bold. This series is near and dear to my heart.
