  I so love the acting in this show that it makes every episode a gem.  Can't wait for *snip* and at the same time don't want to see it but I am sure now that it will be this season.
I have been waiting for this to happen ,since the first five minutes of the first episode of season one !

Miss me?

This episode was rather tame compared to the two before it
I can't do spoiler clips on here . So I can't ramble about what I found interesting ,but lets just say I could literally feel my  muscles and lungs screaming ,and the sheer exhaustion ,after one particular scene  :):

Who else is extremely impressed by the way Season 3 is building?  I'm really enjoying the story arcs of the characters.  Danaerys is becoming far far far more interesting than her Season 2 storyline, in fact I can't think of a poor storyline in any of the characters.  Every time I see Dany's story I get goosebumps waiting to see what will happen.  Three more episodes until the season is finished, and already it's feeling far too short.  I'm hoping they'll do the smart thing and make episode 10 a movie-length episode - that would be about all they can do to really do justice to Season 3.

All players are now in place for:

Looking forward to how they approach these events over the next couple of episodes.

Joffrey (don't know the actor's name) played his part perrfectly.  Arrogant, nasty, childish, petty and scared of grandpa all at the same time.  Tywin walking across teh hall and mounting the stairs was great too.   I think he is starting to wonder if he can control this thing.

I have to admit, the scene in the last episode where Joffrey

Spoiler

managed to shock and intrigue me both at the same time.  The guy who plays Joffrey (also not sure his name) has managed to endear himself as one of the most unliked characters in any show ever made on television.  And by that, I mean it in a positive way - he's unliked because he's so good and making us hate him.

The fear in his eyes while trying to appear regal and all powerful as Grandpa made the long walk was brilliant.   The Dragons were also brilliantly done, they looked so real my jaw dropped.  Are they animotronics, CGI, both?

Indeed, but honestly, I'd be afraid of Tywin Lannister regardless of who I was.  He's a tough bugger, that's for certain.

I agree the dragons are brilliant.  I don't know much about computer technology, but I assumed they were CGI.  It's the cheapest way to get that kind of thing these days, and with growing technology it's becoming more realistic provided it's used in small doses.  A little CGI makes it look amazing.  A lot of CGI makes it look like every other Hollywood blockbuster made in the past five years :)  Could have it wrong, as noted I don't know much about computer technology

Ok, CGI according to Emilia Clarke (Dany).  http://www.huffingto..._n_2997238.html  and I agree, they are using  just the right mix of CGI and real world to make this thing a spectacle, like teh unsullied lining the road for miles.

I dont think that will work, it would remove the quickness of the drama and tension, it's like BAM BAM BAM!!! straight to the point
