The wall climb was the biggest thrill of the episode. Too much time spent on Cersei's and Tyrions marital woes. I don't know that the squibbling between Osha and Meera is leading to anything or not. If not, it's just plain irritating. The Freys were sufficiently creepy - much how I had imagined them.
Theon's torture is getting hard to watch. I had wondered how graphic things might get.
I liked the little voice-over soliloquy by Littlefinger, but all-in-all probably my least favorite episode of this season so far.
It was real up and down for me. The Osha/Meera scene was dumb, and probably pointless. Theon's stuff needs to start going somewhere to merit all the time they're devoting to it.
But I like Ygritte a lot more in the show than the books, and her speech to Jon Snow was pretty endearing. Tywin/Lady Olenna was good, and the last scene w/ Littlefinger & Varys was stellar.
Also, Thoros of Myr is pretty cool. But I like this development with Gendry not.
