Dorne - lol. Aero instantly killed with a dagger in the back. The logic for the killings is OKAY to me, not great but workable, that the Dornish perceive Doran as weak and they want revenge; I just wish that it was a front in the show too. If Aero had fought back and died in a fight (maybe if one other Powerpuff Girl stayed behind, and he killed one, Tyene or Obara, it would have been better IMO. Stupid that Aero just dies after only punching Bronn last season and having no action.
King's Landing - great stuff. The scene with Cersei being elated and running to greet Myrcella, after being told by a handmaiden that a Dornish boat arrived, was heart breaking.
The North - great scenes, glad to see Sansa has taken Brienne into her service; nice to see Pod get some fighting action after his brief training last season (and off screen training daily), also good to see Theon fight for the Stark side again.
Boltons - nice scene with Ramsay and Myranda, "tin man you do have a heart" comes to mind. rip Mannis. soon to be rip Walda and baby Bolton, it seems.
Mereen Group - good scenes, nothing spectacular in my opinion. Jorah and Daario scenes were bland, rip Jorah soon.
Khalasar - great scenes, good to see Dany using her wits and playing dumb as usual with foreign languages, only to use them when she needs to. Khal Moro seems promising.
The Wall - great to see Edd and others getting screentime, Davos brilliant as usual. I especially loved him toying with Alastair Thorne about the mutton. Felt very sorry for Mel, explained why in other threads.
Marg - good scenes, the dialogue between the High Sparrow and Marg were very Catholic I felt; the whole "we're all shit and sinners and hardly anything we do is good".
Overall, pretty good episode. Not premier quality though.
9. Dorne really wasn't that bad. It was pretty dumb, but I actually chuckled at the greedy bitch line and I'm a bit interested to see where it leads. The Sansa/Brienne scene is one of my new favorites from the entire series. I think I liked this a little better than Two Swords. I'll have to watch again though.
Lyanna had only been sixteen, a child-woman of surpassing loveliness. Ned had loved her with all his heart.
The scene between Sansa and Brienne was so well done and moving (those were the vows Catelyn gave Brienne) it bumped everything else off the chart in consideration though Jaime and Cersei's scene was great as was Davos, Edd and Mel.

8. It was an OK premiere. I loved everything at The Wall, from Ghost's mournful howling to the "unexpected" twist at the end. The Brienne/Sansa/Theon scene was great too, another high point. The Boltons, Meereen and King's Landing were solid, but unspectacular. Dorne was bad, and Jorah/Daario was a bit boring. Not a bad episode, but I'm starting to believe that the show will never surpass "Two Swords" as the best premiere.
“As Daenerys Targaryen rose to her feet, her black hissed, pale smoke venting from its mouth and nostrils. The other two pulled away from her breasts and added their voices to the call, translucent wings unfolding and stirring the air, and for the first time in hundreds of years, the night came alive with the music of dragons.”
