Tyrion's made some bad calls lately; really hope he turns it around. (Although if next week's promo is any indication, it'll be a bit before he gets to try again.) At least he still has some good lines.

Both loved and hated the scene with Jamie and Olenna. Loved the scene. Hated the result. :-(

He was quite sane at the start. And was so ambitious about improving Westeros it was suggested he might have one day been called "Aerys the Wise" or "Aerys the Great". Over time he became more and more paranoid and then saw enemies everywhere. It just slid into chaos.

In GAME OF THRONES, if you see enemies everywhere, are you truly mad,  or observant?

I wouldn't say that Tyrion has been making bad calls lately, it's just that he (and pretty much all of her enemies) has underestimated how clever Cersei can be when she isn't letting her emotions cloud her judgement.

Y'see, that's what I thought, but Peter Martin says not. Is it different in the books, maybe? Because I recall a mention in the show that Aerys was a sane and just ruler, up to a point. Which indicates that the same might potentially happen to Daenerys. 

As it is, her arrogance was in full swing, this episode, which again leads me to believe that she's not the one who's gonna end up on top. Seems like she needs to learn it's all about the journey, rather than the destination.

I'm starting to think we saw Arya last episode....

I get the feeling her failed reunion with Nymeria sent her heading back to King's Landing.....and back on the path of vengeance.

Did anyone else spot her?

Arya can be seen in the previews for next week's episode.

And let's face facts... Arya could have been in the entire episode and we might not have spotted her! You want a long shot plot point? Arya is going to assassinate Cersei and take her place... and no one will be the wiser.

Which is why Arya is probably my favorite GOT character!  

With Lyanna "Lil' Boss" Mormont a close second.

I think Arya is on her way North.  I don't think she's headed to or already in King's Landing...yet.

They didn't give any indication that Arya had changed her mind again and decided to head for King's Landing again, so as far as we know, she's still on her way home to Winterfell.

Well... that's what is called a "surprise." :)

But certainly, it could be her target after homecoming. I mean, she could get into Westeros without anyone blinking... and then Walder Frey could have some company in Hell. That'd swing the balance in that war, I should think.
