@ OJ, I'm not too familiar with this debate you speak off but the sex scenes are certainly faithful to the original material.
I liked the pace of this first episode - it didn't feel nearly as rushed as most of the episodes in the previous season. Great to see Yara Greyjoy is free again though I would've preferred a little more tension invested in her Great Escape.
As soon as Sansa got that message from the Glover Lord I knew he wasn't long for this world but what a gruesome ending.
Will be good to have Jaime back properly next episode.
