It was ok, though nothing particular stands out. I'm not impressed with choices of actors for Dragonstone characters (their look, I don't doubt they will do good job). Liam doesn't look plain enough as Davos as he should be, he somehow stands out from the rest. Mellisanda's acting was ok, but she is too plain looking,old and not beautiful enough. I must say i'm pretty satisfied with Stanis choice, although I didn't thought I would be.
Added scenes were good, but not all that necessary. There are many things to show in this season, and 10 episodes ain't much.
Lena was pretty good, although I didn't like her much in first season. And that scene with Grey Wind was excellent as you said, and it's good to see they finally do some nice effects. They looked little underwhelming before (direwolves i mean)
Overall, ok episode and nice start of the season.
