The first time that Oberyn Martell's nickname "the Red Viper" is mentioned onscreen. See more »
When the Mountain is in the ground and beats Oberyn, he makes him drop his spear and it is clearly noticed that it's pointing to one side. But just after he smashes Oberyn's skull, you can see the spear just besides him and pointing to the other side. See more »
Another epic episode and a great set-up for the last two episodes
The Mountain and the Viper is another classic episode for Game of Thrones. Not only is it as interesting as I thought, but it advances the story lines left in the previous episode including the story-arc for Tyrion if he can either be spared or sentenced to death and the ending is really suspenseful.
The performances are still compelling, the storyline/script is well-written, the music score is great and suits the combat sequence really well, the writing is superb, the characters are still believable, the pacing, once again, never drags, the directing and editing is even sharper, and the scenery and sets is really solid. Also, the combat sequence is well-choreographed. So, overall, another epic episode and great set-up for the last two episodes. :)
