Arya Stark: I'm not listening!
Gendry: But just explain it to me. He offered to have any three people you wanted dead. All you had to do was give him the names. Anyone. You could have picked King Joffrey.
Arya Stark: Shut up!
Gendry: You could have picked Tywin Lannister.
Arya Stark: Jaqen got us out of Harrenhal. So why are you complaining?
Gendry: Because you could have ended the war!

Promisinng and better than the season opener
8 April 2013 | by (India) – See all my reviews

This episode was very exciting as it settled the direction of many story-lines that were really going nowhere.

Bran was finally told what talents he possesses by someone very mysterious. The adventure of Arya comes to a halt because she meets someone who recognizes him. The boring pair of Brienna and Kingslayer might be in danger again. And suspicions also arise about what Lord Bolton might be up to, in Robb Stark's camp.

The feminist element in the series is still relevant as we're introduced to a new character, Lady Olenna Redwyne. She is a sly, witty and very astute women who practically leads Tyrells and is unlike any women we've seen in the series before. She and Margaery have their own schemes and they have already begun moving the pawns forward. I am sure they'll add more excitement to the show.

On the whole, I like where this is going and I am excited for what may come.
