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 »

my personal favorite episode of this show
23 March 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is the best episode of the whole series and the second best battle scene I've ever watched, as soon as a big chunk of stannis baratheon's fleet gets ambushed by wildfire and the music kicks in when stannis arrives at king's landing with his remaining soldiers, you get a real adrenaline rush, it's THAT awesome lol, this was a real treat for the fans. I can't wait to see the battle of castle black on season 4, it'll top blackwater I heard, and it'll be drawn out, bloody, gory, intense, brutal, exciting, and adrenaline rushing just like blackwater was :-). season 4 will be insane, it'll have more action, more blood, and more gore than ever before, the fans are in for a real treat since a storm of swords is balls out insane
