I liked it. It was just like she did it in the book.
She killed the Tickler in the book (who is now already dead in the show, killed by Jaqen) not Raff the Sweetling, who should still be alive at that point in the books.  Also, she goes all postal in the books and isn't so cool and collected as in the show.

Still, that scene was really satisfying.

The guy she killed in the latest episode is Polliver.
The rolls got merged, I guess.  ITBs Polliver steals needle but Raff kills Lommy, so they just merged the two (which actually makes that scene work better in the show)  Polliver does die in the inn but via Sandor.  That distinction wasn't the change I was most surprised at, I was hoping to see postal Arya.  The way the show did it was still really good, though.

The Dario recast sucks.  They should have gone full bore and recast him to fit the books description if they were going to bother (oiled forked blue beard)

I'm not sure which Daario I prefer. Last season's guy really didn't do much, but it seems kind of weird to just pull a switch like that with two actors who look nothing at all alike.

The original one was hotter.

Umm, yeah.

This show is so great. Just absolutely shits all over walking dead, aka the iowa state of primetime television.

I don't read - this isn't the 1950's.  The new Daario is ugly.  There, I said it.  The last guy had eff me eyes and a fantastic smile.  The ending scene w/ Arya and the Hound was splendid. The Hound happily eating his chicken after killing 4 men, Arya, smiling on her horse, her needle at her side after taking pleasure in a revenge killing.....both ride off into a sick/twisted sunset which consists of burning fields muddying up the sky.  Perfect.

Ok, so this Daario guy is the guy trying to seduce the dragon lady. It had been a while since the last season but he didn't look the same and now I know why.

Speaking of characters that haven't changed actors but kind of look like they have, Jaime Lanister. The dude looks he's a different actor each season, which is kind of cool considering his character changes each season. He's becoming one of my favorites. In fact, the Lanisters as a family are kind of dominating this show from an awesome characters perspective.

Someone I know thought that Jaime Lannister had been recast...Doesn't he look the same now as he did before he got captured and grew that beard? Maybe a little older looking now and missing a hand.

He seems a little less blonde or something.

Can you imagine how hard it's going to be to get future roles now that he's missing his right hand?

I think the biggest difference was be seasons 1 and 2, for some reason.

I think I'm going to watch the first episode again. That's how good it was. The opening and closing scenes? About as close to perfection as television gets.
