Wow, I had no idea that was Diana Rigg!!  How cool is that.  I loved how she played it and it was one of many high points, acting-wise, of this episode.

Wow, each episode seems like it's only 20 minutes.  Even taking into consideration how fast-paced the story is, I checked the length of time to the end of episode thinking "wow, halfway through and it's still gripping me".  Only to find out that there was only 7 minutes left.  I really enjoyed this episode.  It pushed the story along nicely.  And I'll probably be labelled a traitor to those who are fans of the book, but several elements of the story were pushed forward a lot quicker (and therefore more dramatically) because of the choices of the scriptwriters.

I had the same feeling.  They really need to make these episodes 1.5 hours long or have 3 of the 10 as two hour shows as there are so many "main characters" separated by so much distance that you barely have time to get into the scene and they flicker off to another place.  Regardless, a good episode that I watched twice.

The acting was superb throughout:
-  The Margaery Tyrell character played her part really well, shifting from the old hand at court skullduggery while with her grandmother to the simple minded "I'm just a silly woman" facade to calm down the psychopath she is betrothed to.
-  Speaking of the Tyrells, Diana Rigg playing Lady Olenna Redwyne was the star of the show.  Lord Oaf.  LOL.  Her description of how her husband road his horse off a cliff while hawking was priceless.
- Sansa in the same scene nailed it as well and her mother had an awesome scene with the new daughter-in- law.
- The introduction of the Reeds was perfectly done.


Many more as well.

Yes I like how the TV version skips a lot of unnecessary parts. To be honest the book was a little too slow for me, I like getting straight to the point.

The wait between each episode is dragging on and on..

I much preferred having 2 seasons to watch in one week, to get up to speed on everything.

My bro-in-law says the Theon storyline wasn't even in book 3. Wonder what's up with that, especially considering there seems to be more than enough going on besides adding a storyline.

This was a great episode with so many excellent moments.  The group walking into the council room and Tyrion doing the chair thing was great theater.   Jamie has evolved perfectly and I think that

Is it true that there is no Theon storyline in book 3?

Tyrion with the chair was hilarious!

I want to read the books...but then I don't. I did read the 1st one.

Get a kindle and read the books, it doesn't take anything away from the TV series as it is a great creation on its own merits.   I just watched that whole chair scene again and the acting is priceless.  Not a word spoken but volumes communicated.  I don't know how many takes that took but I'd love to watch the behind the scenes footage.  Dinklage's last little chair squeak at the end probably took 10 takes.
