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

The Best Episode
25 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The coward Joffrey flees for the castle and the cunning Tyrion successively leads the defense of the castle from Stannis's army. Out of the blue, Tywin Lannister and the House Tyrell defeat Stannis and save King's Landing.

"Blackwater" is the best episode of "Games of Throne" so far and the show of Tyrion. His strategy and bravery contrast with the cowardice and arrogance of the cruel and despicable Joffrey. How Tyrion will be rewarded for King's Landing we will see on the next episode. Sansa now has the chance to flee from the castle. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Blackwater"
