The Valyrian steel sword Ice belongs to House Stark. It was used by Eddard Stark in "Winter is Coming" to behead a Nightswatch deserter, and in "Baelor" by Ilyn Payne to behead Eddard Stark. In this episode, Tywin Lannister hires one of three people in the world that can work Valyrian steel to make two swords, one for his son Ser Jaime Lannister and one for his grandson King Joffrey Baratheon as a wedding gift.

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 »
With season 4 making it to the screens, many a reviews came out as the season didn't began as they expected it to be. As GRRM still on the 6th book of the "a song of ice and fire" series, the producers are in no hurry to catch up to him, as each of their yearly season is based upon each book Martin wrote in quite a lot of time. Seeing as the producers have to cover up a "storm of swords" that was half left with the end of the previous season, I'm quite sure they think of covering up this book as well as the next in the series "A feast for crows" . With 10 episodes each year, they can fill up as many gaps as they can and try to go with the books but going according to the pages will be quite a lot of work and since each season has an yearly gap between it , this idea would seem impossible. Furthermore the 4th season of Got began with a good start as they have to cover up a lot of story in coming 9 episodes, let's just hope they deliver 180 days of shooting with pure excitement.
