House Tyrell: We don't know too much about them yet, but Margaery and Loras sure have managed to ride a wave of good fortune. Not too long before, they were shacked up with Renly Baratheon, but after his death, they managed to wind up in the seat of power. There's a lot to admire there. Even if they play sweet and innocent, this family is dangerous.
House Targaryen: Although not fully grown yet, those dragons are getting stronger by the day. Plus, Daenerys might feel guilty about buying slaves, but at least she's finally making progress in building an army. And dragons. Dragons win everything. They just do.
House Lannister: Yes, they're still in power. But a lot of their power depends on their alliance with the Tyrells, who provide food for the kingdom. Also, Cersei recognizes the threat that Margaery poses and when Cersei is threatened, she acts irrationally. Plus, Tywin is too busy hating and alienating Tyrion to realize what an asset his son is. This does not bode well for anyone. And Joffrey is a Lannister, and he is a little piece of shit.
House Stark: Sure, Robb is winning battles, but he also has dissension in his ranks and his prize prisoner is no longer Jaime Lannister, but is instead his own mother. Sansa is still being held captive in King's Landing and has now caught the eye of Littlefinger, so that can't end well. And Arya? WHERE IS ARYA? We want Arya.
