Robb mentions that "the Lannisters have been running from us since Oxcross". This is the first time that the Battle of Oxcross has actually been referred to by name on-screen. See more »

[referring to Tyrion's new quarters]
A bit of a comedown from chamber of the Hand. But then I don't suppose you need much room.
Grand Maester Pycelle made the same joke. You must be proud to be as funny as a man whose balls brush his knees.

Valar Dohaeris does a fantastic job continuing where the last season left off and is very interesting to see new characters appear.
The relationships are still good, the performances are still good, the script is well-written, the story's solid, the scenery and music score's great, and the directing along with pacing is tighter and does give a lot of atmosphere to the background and the characters.
My only quibble is that the new characters had little to do and I would love to see more of their lines, but it doesn't matter. Everything else turned out fine. Overall, a great beginning to Season 3 and I would love to review the rest sometime today.
