Trivia

George R.R. Martin wrote Tyrion's sentence "I'll lead the attack" in the script only once. It was Peter Dinklage's idea to say it twice: once quietly to himself and once so all the soldiers could hear. 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

[Varys listens to the bells toll the alarm before the battle]
Lord Varys: I've always hated the bells. They ring for horror. A dead king, a city under siege...
Tyrion Lannister: A wedding.
Lord Varys: Exactly.

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!
