I think Jorah's scene was supposed to highlight his devotion to the "woman" Danny and not the "Mother of Dragons" Danny. That he sees her as valuable even without those things which arguably make her important (the dragons).
Oh course no one highlighted the other reason to go get them...so they don't end up being weapons for the King of Qarth later on (assuming they would live of course).
Personally I'd rather have more "slow" episodes that let scenes breath and give characters actual dialog with each other than the "move the plot along at breakneck speed" that make some episodes feel more disjointed.
One thing I was surprised about was Talisa not turning out to be who she was in the books. I really thought when they name dropped the Crag that was going to reveal her. It's still possible, but with her long story about Volantis and the slave tattoos, etc, I doubt she's making up stories. It makes you wonder why they decided to change her identity. I can't think of any real benefit one way or the other.
I'd argue that they gave Catelyn every reason to let Jamie go...they came out said that he wouldn't survive the night in the Stark Camp. The immediacy of Lord Kharstark's son's death by Jamie's own hand imperiled his imprisonment in a way the book didn't really have.
Catelyn didn't need the extra push of thinking her son's were dead, she had the "I've got to use Jamie now or lose him".
If anything I was annoyed she didn't come out and say that to Rob, that Lord Kharstark was going to up and kill him except that she intervened, and his death would have been against Robb's wishes as well.
I really enjoy how the books and show diverge but the season is just too short to really tell any story properly. Each episode is solid but overall, less than 10 hours is insufficient to satisfy the viewer (there are weeks where we don't even see characters).
BTW, it made no sense for Catelyn to release Jamie without thinking that her sons were dead -- especially this uber-bad Jamie (that will kill his own cousin). But it does move the story line along.
Theon did know it wasn't the Stark boys, that's why he tried to have his guard pay off the farmer for his troubles at the end of the episode.
