^^^ I agree. It didn't blow me away, but it is setting up the players and the stage for the season. I'm looking forward to the Arya storyline. One of the articles I read said that they had an increased budget this season, so I'm hoping for, and expecting, bigger and better things. Favorite quote from this episode: Tyrion to Cersei: You love your children. It's your one redeeming quality; that and your cheekbones. :lol: Pretty much anything Tyrion says will be a favorite. I can be patient with this show because I know it will build and deliver the goods. And, really, I was just so glad to see these awesome characters back.
