The Battle of the Blackwater was the first time in the books that I began to cheer for Tyrion. It took me that long to come around on the guy and start to really trust him. Dinkledge has done such a marvelous job that I already loved Tyrion. So, for me, I felt like this episode didn't have the same power because we didn't get that shift, that change. They did the best they could, and his speech is outstanding. But the whole Battle after the explosion felt a tad impotent after reading the books.

Still tremendous job. I feel badly even raising a complaint because it was just so well done.
That's pretty much how I feel. I've got my complaints, but given the fact that it's a friggen TV SHOW, I don't think I can really have any legitimate gripe.
