    The Good:

    -"All desires are valid to a man with a full purse."

    -"You think it's honor keeping the peace? It's fear - fear and blood."

    -Cersei and Robert's interaction is missing from the book, but some light is shed on their relationship that makes both characters a bit worthier of empathy.

    The Bad:

    -Varys and Petyr are far more mysterious and intriguing in the books.

    -"The Wolf and the Lion" feels like another setup episode. There is plenty of dialogue, but sparse action until the final scene.
