While reading the White Book of the Kingsguard, King Joffrey mentions Ser Duncan the Tall, the main character of the "Dunk and Egg" trilogy by George R.R. Martin. It is the second time Duncan is mentioned in the show (the first is in "Lord Snow"). See more »
Arya is riding side-saddle in front of The Hound facing his left side, but when the scene angle changes(as she brings up wanting her own horse) she is now facing his right side even though they haven't stopped riding. See more »
[Arya has just retaken her sword, Needle, from Polliver. She repeats back to Polliver the words with which he taunted Lommy before killing him]
Something wrong with your leg, boy?
What? What, what do you mean?
Can you walk?
I've got to carry you?
Fine little blade. Maybe I'll pick my teeth with it.

Two Swords not only does a great job introducing new characters, but also continuing the story lines for the Stark and Lannister with a few twists and turns. There aren't any faults I have with this episode because it's a classic and it's a great start to Season 4.
The performances are still great, the storyline/script is even more fresh, the pacing is superb and doesn't drag, the relationships continue to shine, the scenery is gorgeous, the CGI graphics is really solid (even the look of the dragon in Daenerys' story-arc, which looks pretty cool), the action is really interesting, the music score is still beautiful, and the directing is terrific. So, overall, a great start to the fourth season. :)
