What a great episode!  I am actually being serious right now; I loved episode 3 of Medaka Box.  Maybe I liked it better because the episode focuses a lot more on Zenkichi then Medaka and her breasts.  The episode even set up for a continuation of the story next week.  I always love arcs more than episodic episodes.  The series seems to be taking a half episode approach.  There are 2 events that take place every episode.  They happen one after another instead of at the same time.

At the center of the conflict lie the Starks of Winterfell, a family as harsh and unyielding as the land they were born to. Sweeping from a land of brutal cold to a distant summertime kingdom of epicurean plenty, here is a tale of lords and ladies, soldiers and sorcerers, assassins and bastards, who come together in a time of grim omens.
