Did You Know?


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 »


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 »


[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.

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"
