It happens later on...but I do not think we should discuss that on this thread
Not everyone will have read the books who are watching the TV series.
I thought this episode was pretty good. The scene with Theon and his sister was excellent. Alfie Allen has really made this role his own and when I picture Theon now it is as how Allen is portraying him.
The other standout scene for me was Tyrion and Cersei. Thankfully the producers came away from the idea of showing Cersei in a somewhat sympathetic light and began showing her for the ghastly, vindictive character she is.
The scene with Davos and Stannis finally showed us the character of Stannis and the underlying resentment he has always felt towards Ned, Robert, Renly and most of the world. A resentment he hides behind his public showing of autocratic arrogance. I have always believed that Stannis is one of the most bitter characters in the series.
