Lannister Accountant Posted April 8, 2012 Share Posted April 8, 2012 This episode gets a solid 8 from me. It doesn't quite break into the 9 territory because a) despite having so much to cover, the powers that be thought...Ros should have more screen time? Really? B) Cressen. Oh Cressen. His entire character is abbreviated and death seems so pointless. There was so much more profound going on in ACOK for him and having recently listened to the audio book and appreciated the character, the way he's so unceremoniously retired here rubbed me the wrong way. c) Is it my imagination or does Robb seem a little too confident? He's angry and rightfully so, but in Season 1, despite being determined, he had more perspective.Now while a lot of this has been echoed here, the good well outweighed the bad. The transitions (and use of the red comet) was a good call. Peter Dinklage continues to be the absolute best thing about the show, although his King's Landing co-stars have brought their A games as well. I am very impressed with the sheer amount of material for such a sprawling epic, it was well handled. I have already watched this episode three times and it holds up. I remain primed for the season.
