I like the new Daario better than the old Darrio. I really enjoyed the Joffrey scene.
I've pretty much conceded that the TV adaptation will be a different interpretive take on the books. I'm just hoping with the progress of the TV series that it would accelerate GRRM to finish The Winds of Winter.
I really liked the tavern scene. They've taken a different direction with the Arya/Hound story, but I'm liking the continued development of Arya as a cold-blooded badass killer.
All in all, the premiere was great and perhaps the best since Season 1. Glad to see Oberyn and I think he's well casted. I'm disappointed with Tywin's disowning of Jaime being much more anticlimactic than in the books. Dany's scenes were OK, aside from the dragons and the "mile marker" to Meereen being pretty cool.
