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 »
When dead men, and worse, come hunting for us in the night, do you think it matters who sits the Iron Throne?
Good. Because I want you and your wolf with us when we ride beyond the Wall tomorrow.
Beyond the Wall?
I will not sit meekly by and wait for the snows. I mean to find out what's happening. The Night's Watch will ride in force against the wildlings, the White Walkers, and whatever else is out there. And we will find Benjen Stark, alive or dead. I will command them myself. So I will ...

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 »
Yoren brings Arya with him and cuts her hair, giving her the appearance of a boy as a recruit of the Night's Watch. Master Luwin tells Bran and Rickon about their father's death. Robb is declared The King in the North by the lords that are following him. Tywin orders the cunning Tyrion to go to King's landing to serve as the Hand of the King as his substitute. Daenerys wakes up and learns that he son is dead and all the warriors have left them behind since Drogo is near death. Further the witch Mirri Maz Duur tells that she has revenged all the evil Drogo did to her city and people. During the night, Daenerys suffocates Drogo with a pillow. At the Wall, Jon Snow learns that his father was murdered and decides to leave Castle Black. However his friends pursue him and convince him to return. Daenerys prepares a funeral pyre for Drogo and for burning also the witch. She also puts the three dragon eggs on the pyre. Then she walks into the flame and is consumed by the fire. However in the morning she rises like a phoenix with three baby dragons.
"Fire and Blood" is another excellent episode and season finale of "Game of Thrones". Now Drogo is also dead and the dragons have returned. I guess what will happen when Stannis receives Ned's letter telling that Joffrey is not the son of Robert. They will certainly claim the Iron Throne, but Tyrion is smart and has been assigned Hand of the King. I am also looking forward to see Jaime beheaded. My vote is ten.
Title (Brazil): "Fire and Blood"
