When Ser Alton Frey is talking to Ser Jaime Lannister in the prison cell at the Stark camp he talks about the tourney on the day of Ser Willem Frey's wedding. He says he remembers how Jaime knocked Balon Swann from his horse. The wedding of Ser Willem is assumed to have occurred long before the start of the TV series, but Balon Swann was new to the tourney lists in the tourney to celebrate Eddard Stark being appointed hand of the king, so could not have taken part in the tourney for Willem Frey's wedding.

I found it quite hard to like this episode despite a good scene with Arya and Tywin. I think it's down to Tyrion only appearing in one scene
Plot In A Paragraph: Theo leads a hunt, Jon continues to struggle, whilst Arya and Tywin bond. Jamie shows how far he is willing to go when he meets a relative.
Some of the actors give their worst performances of the entire run of the show. Emilia Clarke, Lena Headey Michelle Fairley and Iain Glenn I'm talking to you
Sophie Turner is good as Sansa, and she shares a good scene with The Hound. Kit Harrington enjoys some fun scenes with Rose Leslie and as always Maisie Williams is excellent in her scenes with Charles Dance as is Peter Dinklage in his one scene and Nikolaj Coaster-Waldau is simply superb as Jamie Lannister.
