It seems all a little odd, but like I said before, it might work out for the best TV-wise, or else we'll all hate it if it doesn't. I guess we'll see how it plays out. I'll resevere my judgment on the changes for now, and enjoy what went really well in this episode.
Dany's story mostly becomes a whiny teenager pissing and moaning about what she's going to do when she's queen...then getting all wet in the thighs anytime some purple-haired archer shows up. Her story is just awful for 3 consecutive books.
Perhaps the show will actually make in interesting.
Fortunately it appears that they're not messing around with Tyrion at all, and both he and Snow have the most consistently great storylines.
