I really dislike most the ones with wishy washy feelings-save-the-universe endings and this didn't really have much in the preceding minutes to suck me in.
Next week might be pretty awesome though, because if there's gonna be trouble at sea, then Davos Seaworth is obviously the man for the job.
Not me. That was really good. The episode itself was just pretty good for the most part, nothing special, but the final third was really great.
Matt Smith continues to surprise me every season at some point, and the speech scene near the end of this episode was the moment so far this year. Sure, the 11th so far has been very speech-y.. but this one, in particular, was tremendous. Smith sold the emotion and pain and the exhaustion of being the Doctor so well. And Clara was terrific as well.
