I thought the episode was great. Tyrion is risking himself with Joffrey though. Quarth is a little underwhelming - the whole thing seems like filler compared to last season for Dany.
Also I'm pretty convinced that Theon is screwed if the skin flaying family's bastard is being sent to deal with him. The father only had one line before and it was creepy as fuck. Theon is a little bitch but nobody deserves to be flayed alive.
