Trivia

According to the original novel, the singer who was tried by Joffrey was not Marillion, but an unnamed tavern singer. Marillion, who was present at the Crossroads Inn when Catelyn captured Tyrion and accompanied them to the Vale, makes an appearance in the next books, but never in King's Landing. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the episode when the Dothraki all kneel after Daenerys Targaryen stands up, the men behind her next to the horses drop completely on the ground. However, in the wider shot of the scene, the men are still standing with just their heads down. When the final shot is widened further, some of the men near the horses have disappeared. See more »

Crazy Credits

The sun tells an important part of the series back story, on its panels. It does so in three segments. First, as the credits start up, the sun depicts how the Targaryens and their dragons conquered Westeros. The second time the sun is shown, a dragon is depicted in a mortal struggle with 3 other animals: The Stag, the Lion and the Wolf. It is a very literal way to show how Robert Beratheon and Ned Stark rebelled, with Tywin Lannister reluctantly supporting them, in the end. Finally, the third time the sun is shown, before the series title enter the scene, a lion (among other animals) is shown "kneeling" to a triumphant Stag. Just as Robert was crowned King after winning the war. See more »

Vengeance Arises!
28 June 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is the tenth episode of the first season of Game of Thrones. It is a fitting finale and it foreshadows what seems to be a magnificent second season. This episode is emotionally-charged following the beheading of Ned Stark and what I really like is how we see each family member affected by his death. The episode has a tense, angry feel to it and it seems like vengeance is in the air. Plus the very ending....is just wow. Emilia Clarke is proving herself to be a wonderful actress.

In this episode, "Fire and Blood," the execution of Ned Stark has the Stark family in an emotional showdown. Robb Stark promises vengeance on the Lannisters. Meanwhile, Arya escapes from King's Landing and begins to travel up north. Jon Snow must decide whether he will be a Ranger or fight with Robb. Vaenary realizes keeping Drogo alive may not be the right thing to do. Tywin Lannister decides to send Tyrion to King's Landing to act as Hand of the King.

Overall, this is one of the best episodes in the first season if not the very best. The ending is magnificent and it will definitely affect future seasons. A lot happens in the episode, so be sure not to blink an eye.

My Grade: A+
