The insults being thrown at Daenerys and her army by the Meereneese champion are the exact same insults that were thrown at King Arthur and his men in Monty Python's Holy Grail, just translated into Valyrian. See more »

Arya Stark: What did you do?
Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: Get your horse saddled.
Arya Stark: You told me you weren't a thief.
Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: I wasn't.
Arya Stark: He took us in. He fed us and you...

Not nearly as excellent as the first two, but is still interesting
22 April 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Breaker of Chains isn't nearly as excellent as the first two, but it's still a great episode. Yes, the pacing does feel a bit uneven and the rape scene was a bit unnecessary, but those are the only problems I have and everything else turned out fine.

The performances are still good, the storyline/script continues to be well-written, the directing is still solid, the relationships continue to shine, the editing is sharp, the music score is still beautiful while maintaining a sense of atmosphere, and the characters continue to be interesting. So, overall, not nearly as excellent as the first two, but it's still interesting.
