I gave the episode an 8 because we finally got the Jon arryn info and the Starks had their most positive episode since Ned was around. Bran gaining control of Hodor to annihilate Locke was intriguing. Dany's struggle with liberation is important because she sees the big picture rather than forcing her way to westeros ill-equipped. I wish they would have showed Dario taking the Myranese navy. All in all, I don't understand how some of you guys felt this was a bad episode.
