That was the first real episode with Varys this season. Both his scenes, particularly the monologue with Tyrion with the box reveal at the end of it, were great.
I was waiting for somebody to kill that asshole Craster. Too bad it had to come at the expense of Jeor Mormont getting stabbed in the back and total chaos for the Night's Watch. The Mormont death was no real surprise considering the name of the episode, though.
Jaime's depressed about the hand. Yeah, that sucks. Time to learn to fight with your left hand, I guess.
I don't know who that guy with no eye is in the Brotherhood without Banners, but I think he might just have some trouble beating the Hound in a fight for that trial by combat.
Theon's gotten himself into even more ****ed up shit somehow with a crazy guy who released him and saved him from rape one day only to apparently bring him back to get tortured some more. At least Theon expressed some remorse for all the bullshit he pulled last season and realized Balon hates him. So somewhat on the right track...maybe. Except for that crazy guy.
And of course, it doesn't get any more badass than what Daenerys did in the final scene there. Epic takeover. I didn't consider just handing over the dragon and having it burn him with fire to pieces, but perhaps I should have. One of the best scenes in the entire series probably.
