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 »

Quotes

Tyrion Lannister: Don't fight for a king. Don't fight for his kingdoms. Don't fight for honor, don't fight for glory, don't fight for riches, because you won't get any. This is your city Stannis means to sack. That's your gate he's ramming. If he gets in it will be your house that burns. Your gold he steals, your women he rapes. Those are brave men knocking at our door. Let's go kill them!

Well written and climactic battle
9 June 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Episode written by novelist George R.R. Martin himself, the script here drips with sarcasm and is crisp as ever delivered by the show's fine actors. The sense of danger and urgency is omnipresent, the dialogues and monologues epic and the battle brutal, strategic and intense, even though like most of Game of Thrones it is purposely poorly lit.

A great episode following the high level of acting/directing in Alan Taylor's "The Prince of Winterfell" and ending unexpectedly with the entrance of a prominent character.

Tyrion, Cersei and Catelyn's characters dominate the screen time and shine while the cowardly young king punctuates a few dark moments. Politics, power, friendship, love and warfare intermingle in a delicious night to remember.
