Did You Know?


In the novels, it is made explicitly clear that Sandor "the Hound" Clegane hates liars. When Sansa tries to lie her way out of her blunder with Joffrey in the opening scene, Sandor steps in and backs her up - in other words, he became a liar to save her from beating. See more »


Stannis says "when Eddard Stark learned the truth [about Cersei's children], he told only me". Eddard Stark wrote a letter about that and gave it to Tomard with specific instructions to deliver it personally to Stannis, but Tomard was killed before he could deliver it to Stannis, thus Stannis could not hear that from Eddard.

How Does One Begin to Summarize This
29 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There are so many plot elements going on here that to try to go through them is quite fruitless. Suffice it to say there are some incredibly stunning scenes. For one, Joffrey is taking it to new limits. He is so heartless and so cold. He decides a drunken man needs to drown in alcohol, forced down his throat. He confronts his mother calling her out for her responsibility in driving his father to produce bastards all over the kingdom, then sending out assassins to kill them, including a small child and a baby. Of course, the most dangerous of these would be Jon Snow. We see Tyrion gaining the position of Hand to the King, showing little if any respect for his master. Once again, the smallest person in the series, dominates the screen. He is the survivor, the intellectual, the true predictor of actions. There are other aspects of the wars going on with the multiple kings. Once again, there are so many irons in the fire and it is becoming difficult to interpret the alliances.
