Oberyn Martell: Have they told you who I am?
Gregor Clegane: [snarls] Some dead man!
Oberyn Martell: I am the brother of Elia Martell. Do you know why I have come all the way to this stinking, shit-pile of a city? For you. I'm going to hear you confess before you die. You raped my sister. You murdered her. You killed her children. Say it now and we can end this quick.

Purely amazing episode!!!
3 June 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This episode was mind boggling. Even having read the books, seeing the events unfold in real time, was just amazing. Sansa seemed to have finally caught up to the game of thrones world, while a heartbreaking truth was revealed to Dany. Arya and the hound had a short but a memorable scene and the Grey Worm scene was a fun side scene. Poor Tyrion is expected to watch his champions fight for both their and Tyrion's life. The last five minutes were intense and the ending was one of the most shocking and gruesome that had only been achieved previously by The Red Wedding. Hopefully poor Jon Snow will be able to handle the wrath that is about to come to the wall. 10/10 for this episode.
