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

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 Stark: Praying.
Cersei Lannister: You're perfect, aren't you? Praying? What are you praying for?

Cersei Lannister: Oh? On all of us?

Spine-Chilling!
28 May 2012 | by See all my reviews

56mins of Spine-Chilling Awesomeness!!! The best episode I've seen yet.. Game of Thrones keeps getting better and better!

I have the full set of books but after watching 19 episodes, I decided not to read it because it might spoil the story, I'd rather watch the TV series.

Perfect acting, the details of the war.. Just don't have enough words to express how awesome this episode, and the entire series as a whole was! This episode was a thriller!

I sure am going to miss it since there is only one more episode left for the season, cant wait for the next season to begin!
