After the slave masters are burnt, there's an overhead shot of all the Unsullied which are mentioned to be 8,000. But in each of the group there are 160 Unsullied. 47 such groups are clearly shown. Total groups should be 60 in total according to the formation of groups, and later when the groups march out of that place it's countable to 60. So actually there were 9,600 Unsullied shown.

When people talk about the Night's Watch, they never mention the shoveling.
Or the shit.
They tell you about honor, pardoning crimes, and protecting the realm, but shoveling really is most of it.
And getting attacked, or killed, or worse.
And that. But when you're not getting attacked or killed, usually you're shoveling.
Ah, look. More shit. I was starting to wonder what to do with the rest of me day.

And Now His Watch Is Ended is by far the best episode in the entire season, but it's not the only one (I'll get to the last two episodes of Season 3 later). The pacing's much tighter, the story/script is still well-written, the performances are still solid, the relationships still shine, the directing and editing is still nice, and the scenery's still gorgeous.
There are no problems I have with this episode because after three great episodes for Season 3, this is really starting out even more fresher than I thought. So, overall, the best episode in the entire season and does a great job continuing the story lines so neatly.
