Another great episode. GoT keeps proving that it's one of the best shows on television.
The Hound unsurprisingly won his fight, but Beric apparently has as many lives as Thoros can give him. Those two are certainly an interesting pair (and Thoros seems to have much better intentions than the other red priest on the show, Melisandre).
Jon Snow and Ygritte finally got it on. Been waiting for that for a season or so. Other than that, his story didn't move forward much.
Robb reminded me of his father when he executed Karstark for killing the Lannister children. Pretty intense scene. Rather than being practical and keeping his army intact as everyone around him wanted him to, he decided to enact a death sentence for Karstark's treason. Robb stuck with honor there, but it may cost him any real shot of winning the war without the Frey's help.
We saw Stannis' family (who seem to be kept far away from everyone else) for the first time, including his scarred daughter that I don't believe we knew he had and his wife that appears far more crazy than he is. Odd family relationship for an odd character.
We also saw another side of Jaime that had only really been insinuated before through bits and pieces of his dialogue in the first two seasons. That was truly a great scene with him and Brienne in the bath. One of the best of this season. He may not be an honorable man in the way that Ned and Barristan Selmy were/are, but he's clearly a much more prudent one. If he didn't act how he did and break his vows the Mad King would have killed the city's entire population with wildfire. Jaime has slowly become one of my favorites on the show, he is clearly a deeper character than he first appeared.
And then, of course, Tywin forcing his children to marry Sansa and Loras to preserve Lannister power. I'm not sure the move is entirely necessary from his perspective, but I can't exactly see either one disobeying him either.
No Theon this week, though, so at least things couldn't get worse for him!
