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 »

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!
