Storyline

In King's Landing, Tywin Lannister and Lady Olenna meet to discuss his children's proposed marriages. She puts up a good fight but in the end is forced to admit defeat. Tyrion and Cersei bemoan their fate. Tyrion is forced to tell Sansa what his father has decided. Baelish meanwhile eliminates a spy in his midsts. Arya takes an immediate dislike to Melisandre when she arrives at their camp. That dislike grows when she learns Melisandre is taking someone away with her. Jaime negotiates his release and return to King's Landing. Robb, his army depleted, realizes he has no choice but to repair relations with the Freys. However, since Robb didn't marry one of the Frey daughters as promised, they demand Edmure Tully marry one of them instead. Jon, Ygritte and many others arrive at the Wall and begin the 700 ft. climb Written by garykmcd

Goofs

Whilst at dinner with Roose Bolton and Brienne, Jaime is initially seen in closeup attempting to cut his meat with the side of a two-pronged fork, but in the wide shot, the fork has changed to a knife. In the following wide shot, he is once again holding the fork, and is then seen setting it aside and picking up the knife instead. See more »

Quotes

Tormund Giantsbane: Sink your metal deep, and make sure it holds before taking your next step. And if you fall, don't scream. You don't want that to be the last thing she remembers.

It's hard to comment on segments. So I would say that there are some broad issues that are constantly in front of us. There is a struggle to tell who the players are as we parse the seven kingdoms that keep being mentioned. The Lannisters seem to have most of the chips, but their manipulations are certainly dangerous and may backfire. Where is Arya going to end up. Why is Theon being tortured by that sniveling little jerk and why does he have so much power over life and death. No dragons this time. She's on her way, though, and what will happen when those things reach full size. It's like having deflated footballs. There is this incredible scene as the winter people climb the ice wall and peer over the other side. Tyrion and his sister are now commiserating over who is whose enemy and whether the dwarf was her target. Does it matter. They are all potentially deadly and blood certainly isn't thicker than water, unless ambition can be satisfied. We are off to the races as the next episode unfolds. The wedding is coming and Littlefinger is using his wiles and trying to manipulate his way to the top.
