Looks like Renly is too stupid to combine forces with the Starks to take down the Lannisters. His wife is an interesting character though, LOL. So is that Amazon knight woman.
Wonder if we've seen the end of Pycelle? Something tells me Littlefinger and/or The Spider knew that Tyrion was toying with them and didn't spill the beans on purpose. I think The Spider is one step ahead of everyone at all times.
Interesting new role for Shay. Wonder what will happen there.
Hopefully the Starks are testing Theon's loyalty and aren't actually relying on him to turn the Greyjoy clan. It is hard to believe that he would be more loyal to the Starks than his own blood.
