The episode title refers to Yara Greyjoy's sarcastic remark to her brother Theon: "Why, it's the Prince Of Winterfell!". It is also the title of the 37th chapter in the novel "A Dance with Dragons". See more »
[Jaime and Brienne are on their way to King's Landing. Jaime keeps teasing Brienne while she leads him to the river]
It's a long way to King's Landing. Might as well get to know one another. Have you known many men? I suppose not. Women? Horses? Aha!
[Jaime winces in pain when Brienne forces him to kneel down near a boat, because she spotted people passing nearby on a bridge]
I didn't mean to give offense, My Lady. Forgive me.
Brienne of Tarth:
Your crimes are past forgiveness, Kingslayer.
Why do you hate me so ...

The Prince of Winterfell is another great episode and sets up the last two episodes nicely
The Prince of Winterfell is another great episode in Season 2. My only is that only two scenes felt a bit too long and unnecessary and could've furthered the story a bit. However, it didn't bother me that much and everything else still turned out fine.
The performances are still great, the character relationships are still great as ever before, the pacing (despite how slow the beginning was) is still fine, the music score is still great, and the story/script is still well-written. It also does a nice job setting up the last two episodes. So, overall, great episode and great set-up. That's all I have to say. :)
