The process shown at the beginning of the episode is called casting and cannot be used to make swords - they'd be too brittle. Forging is a much more elaborate and lengthy process. And if the secret of the steel is lost, as both Tywin and Jaime mention, you can't just melt an old sword to make a new one. You'd need to cut the old sword into parts and reforge it. But you'd need to know the exact method (i.e. "secret") to do that and even then, it'd be a totally different steel. See more »
Tywin gives a sword made of Valyrian steel to Jaime and orders him to return to Casterly Rock, but Jaime refuses to go. Tyrion is assigned to welcome Prince Doran Matell but he learns that his brother Oberyn will attend the wedding instead and has arrived earlier. Tyrion finds Oberyn with his mistress in the brothel and he finds that he hates the Lannisters. Cersei gives a golden right hand for Jaime and her maid discloses information about Shae that she had overheard. Dontos meets Sansa to thank her for saving his life and gives a necklace that belonged to his mother to her. Tormund and the wildlings team up with the cannibals Thenn under the command of Styr. Jon Snow recovers from the injuries and goes to a hearing with the leaders of the Night's Watch. Arya and The Hound reach a tavern with five men and The Hound is forced to fight against them. Arya kills two men, one of them with her Needle. Daenerys find 163 slaves nailed to crosses and she reaches the front gate of the city of Meereen.
"Two Swords" is a warm start of the Fourth Season of "game of Thrones". The story introduces the dangerous and amoral Oberyn Matell. Daario Naharis that was played by Ed Skrein has been replaced by Michiel Huisman, who does not have any resemblance with the original actor. The impulsive Arya forces The Hound to fight again against a great number of opponents. My vote is eight.
Title (Brazil): "Two Swords"
