Trivia

When Grand Maester Pycelle gives Queen Cersei the essence of nightshade, he describes it as both deadly and efficacious. This is the second reference to the writings of John Holbrook Vance, the science fiction author whom George R.R. Martin greatly respects, and the second time the character of Pycelle has been used to refer Mr. Vance (the first is in Game of Thrones: What Is Dead May Never Die (2012)). It's no wonder that word (efficacious) made it into the script, as Mr. Martin adapted this episode himself. See more »

Goofs

When Sandor "the Hound" Clegane returns to the city after fleeing the battle, he calls for a drink, throws away the water and calls for wine. By the time he reaches Sansa's chamber, he is carrying a water skin. See more »

Quotes

[Sansa runs back to her chambers during the battle. The Hound, drunk and despondent, is sitting on her bed in the shadows, waiting for her]
Sandor Clegane: The lady's starting to panic.
Sansa Stark: [frightened] What are you doing here?
Sandor Clegane: Not here for long. I'm going.
Sansa Stark: Where?
Sandor Clegane: Someplace that isn't burning. North, might be. Could be.
Sansa Stark: What about the king?
Sandor Clegane: He can die just fine on his own.
[the Hound takes a long drink from his skin of wine]
Sandor Clegane: I could take you with me. Take you to Winterfell.

Best episode on TV
28 May 2012 | by (India) – See all my reviews

What an episode . . . The real treat from HBO. The work done by director is awesome. According to me ... best i have seen on TV serial. Blackwater bay was one of the big battles of the books and a complete episode just for this battle was amazing. Game of thrones is setting new standard on small screens.

A truly justice done to George R R Martin books. I have read all five books of Ice and Fire. And according to me Third book gives damn shocks. Heard that book 3 will be divided into 2 seasons. That means 20 episodes story line will go even more deep. Damn we have to wait for future episodes and also for Winds of winter to release.

Hats off to you guys.
