Episode cast overview, first billed only:


Daenerys easily conquers Meereen and shows just what she's prepared to do to those who defy her. Bronn tells Jaime he is certain Tyrion had nothing to do with Joffrey's death.

Jaime asks Brienne to find Sansa and gives her his new sword, which she names Oathkeeper. Olenna counsels Margaery as to the next steps needed for her to remain Queen. At Castle Black, Jon Snow receives permission to take volunteers 60 miles north to stop their former members who rebelled from talking to Mance Rayder's army. Bran is taken prisoner by Karl Tanner and the mutineers who have taken over Craster's Keep. The identity of Joffrey's killers is revealed. Written by garykmcd

Did You Know?


The title of the episode refers to Oathkeeper, the sword that Tywin Lannister had made in the opening of the episode "Two Swords", which Jaime gifts to Brienne. Jaime gives it to her it was forged from Eddard Stark's Valyrian steel sword Ice and Jaime feels it is suitable to help Brienne in her quest to find Stark's daughters Sansa and Arya. See more »


In the scene where Brienne and Jaime are say their farewells, the camera pans out to reveal Jaime wearing his sword on his left side. For accurate efficiency of unsheathing a sword, it should be worn on his right side since he now uses his left hand for sword fighting. See more »


Bronn: Your brother ever tell you how I came into his service?
Jaime Lannister: You stood for him in his trial by combat at the Eyrie.
Bronn: Aye. But only when Lady Arryn demanded the trial take place that day. You were his first choice. He named you for his champion because he knew you would ride, day and night, to come fight for him. You gonna fight for him now?

Very interesting episode of 4th season that tends to be the best so far!
30 April 2014 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

First of all I very much liked the change from the book, and the introduction of something quite new, that hasn't been written yet. It must be very important for later storyline and story outcome (finale) otherwise they wouldn't mention it; I surely like the idea of white walkers and their possible role in story outcome. Also I can't understand all the bad comments that I read in IMDb. If book fans (and therefore show fans!!!) expect to see strictly the same story they already read, why they after all watch show, they already know everything? All in this episode is perfectly well executed and written. Some of the alterations that are even possible in the book are very well written and presented. There is nothing bad in this episode it is even one of the best of whole series; Game of Thrones episodes become better and better as the story progress! 11/10
