Trivia

The song "The Rains of Castamere" was written about Lord Tywin Lannister's crushing victory over the rebellious House Reyne of Castamere and the House Tarbeck. When the House Farman of Faircastle grew truculent, playing the song at Lord Farman's hall was enough to make him reconsider his position. 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 »

The bells brought the best episode of Game Of Thrones yet.
27 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

What a thrill! I don't even know where to start.

"I hate bells..." Varys said. But viewers do love them. Unlike the other wars that happened in Game Of Thrones, or should had happened (Because they were cut off) This was the first one that was showed completely. This episode (written by George R.R. Martin himself) was the best one yet. I was seating on the edge of my seat and couldn't believe what was going on...

The whole season has been developing to get here, the war... and boy what a war... I dare to call it a perfect 10.... I won't spoil it, go ahead and watch it!
