In the aftermath of the short battle where the Unsullied - at Daenerys's command - kill all the slavers, Jorah Mormont is looking up at Daenerys, and as Daenerys walks to the left, you can see her shadow against the sky, presumably a silkscreen part of the set. See more »
Margaery has her claws on Joffrey. She knows how to manipulate him.
Good. I wish you knew how to manipulate him. I don't distrust you because you're a woman. I distrust you because you're not as smart as you think you are. You've allowed that boy to ride roughshod over you and everyone else in this city.
Perhaps... you should try stopping him from doing what he likes.

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.
