As much as it's an established character trait of Tyrion's that he can't keep his mouth shut, I was cringing
in that scene with Cersei when she was clearly agitated and he was mocking her. Her throwing in his face the fact that their mother died giving birth to him as retaliation was brutal
. The acting in that scene was really good, especially the way PD showed that Tyrion was trying to absorb the blow once she mentioned it without losing his composure. Gah, I love the fucked-up Lannister family dynamics. (And isn't that how nasty family fights go? You're arguing with a sibling or parent, and they bring up something you did when you were a baby as supporting evidence of whatever point they're trying to make about your supposed shortcomings.)
Jaqen's actor was incredibly impressive in his short scene. You got the sense that Jaqen was impressed with the spirit shown by "Arry," but there was something cold and predatory about him at the same time, like you can totally believe that there is a very good reason
he's locked up with the other two. Awesome, awesome stuff.
Liam Cunningham is a flawless Davos, and I loved the Davos/Salladhor scene. "A man chops off your fingers, and you fall in love with him!" Hee hee. (Also, yay for a POC being cast in the Salladhor role! More of that, please.)
Gendry seems more good-humoured than he is in the books. I approve.
Sam's "I can't steal
her! She's a person, not a goat
!" was A+++. (Also, shut up, Jon.) Flawless line reading by Sam's actor.
