Two of the scenes - Arya's brutal encounter with Hot Pie and Lommy, and the conversation between Jaime and Catelyn - are not included in the original novel, but in the sequel "A Clash of Kings". See more »
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 »
The cities and places featured in the opening credits change as the series progresses. For example, in the first episode, Pentos is shown whereas in later episodes, because it is not pertinent to the episode's narrative, it is not. See more »
Fire and Blood hits all of the right emotions in this season finale!
Fire and Blood is another classic episode in the first season of Game of Thrones. It hits all of the right emotions and it leaves you on a cliffhanger to what would really happen to some of the Stark family members in the future seasons while focusing on Daenerys and the Lannister family now that Sansa is with Joffrey now after her father Lord Ned was executed for treason.
The story is still well-written, the script is great, the dialog is still fresh, the pacing is still more tighter and it takes it's time to develop the relationship and where it would go in the later seasons. And the music score from Ramin Djawadi hits the emotional moments really well. Much like the previous episode, I have no problem at all with this episode. I'm glad I decided to review the entire first season and only eleven more days until Season 6 arrives. So, overall, another classic episode that is more emotional and satisfying. Thumbs up from me! :)
