Storyline

Theon's sister Yara arrives at Winterfell with reinforcements but he still can't seem to earn her respect. She tells him he was stupid to kill the Stark boys as they were valuable prisoners. Theon learns that his father wants him to return home. North of the Wall, Jon had been taken prisoner by wildlings. At Harrenhal, Arya identifies the last of the three lives Jaquen H'ghar promised her for saving him. Robb is dismayed at the deal his mother has made with Jamie Lannister and places her under arrest. Danerys refuses to leave Qarth without her dragons and decides to retrieve them from the House of the Undying. Stannis and his army approach King's Landing from the sea. Tyrion plans for the defense of the city but Cersei wants him to keep her son King Jeoffrey out of the fighting. He realizes that he must take steps to protect Shae. Written by Abigail Thomas

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. :)
