    Arya was 11 when it started wasn't she? So she must be 13 or so by now.

    ETA She's older than Bran, who says he's ten in the first episode

    She is nine when Robert Baratheon came to Winterfell - http://gameofthrones.wikia.com/wiki/Arya_Stark

    Either way, I still didn't interpret that scene between them as remotely potentially romantic.

    ETA: I think I'm getting confused as they are portrayed older in the TV show than the books!

    That refers to the books; all the children are about two years older in the series.

    ETA Snap!

    I did - i said i found it very moving!

    I really like Jaime. Trying to kill Bran is the one-and-only strike against him to me. Even his relationship with Cerci is quite pure and sincere i think (incest=gross, yes; but the enormity of his immoveable devotion to her is admirable)
    And i really felt for him in that bath scene, the emotion in his retelling was breathtaking. It changed Breanne and it changed their relationship (which will have a flow on effect in Jamie & Cerci's relationship). Massively important scene, and i think it was done really well.

    I always assumed there was a whole lot of back story there, and they didn't disappoint. I loved Brienne's facial expression, the actor did a great job

    I'm hoping Tyrion somehow gets her on the boat with Balish. But I loved the pouty looks both the Lannister kids had at the end of the last episode!

    The Jamie backstory was needed. All the characters have depth but his was a bit lacking. He was just the incestual brother who pushed Bran out the window. Now he's got substance and probably a new bed buddy.

    I too was hoping Arya and Gendry would end up together but wasn't sure how they'd bridge the age gap. Not that it mattered back then. Will be interesting to see what happens to her now.

    The cave scene was pretty scaled back for an HBO show! Needed more naked Snow!

    I just can't warm up to the Queen of the North. Anyone else find their "love" not so convincing?

    I think Rob's wife is a spy... and I haven't read the books so just basing it purely on the show. When she first came into it and met Catelyn, she said were she was from and Catelyn didn't know where she was talking about and something was a miss. I'm not sure which side she is on yet, but I don't believe she is who she says she is.

    I've never liked Baelish

    As for Queen of the north, yeah, not a fan. Dont know what she's up to. Just opportunistic maybe? That character is completely different in the books so what happens & why will be a surprise for us all.

    I don't think the Jamie/Brienne thing is sexual at all.
