Trivia

According to the original novel, the singer who was tried by Joffrey was not Marillion, but an unnamed tavern singer. Marillion, who was present at the Crossroads Inn when Catelyn captured Tyrion and accompanied them to the Vale, makes an appearance in the next books, but never in King's Landing. See more »

Goofs

After Ned is beheaded, his sword Ice is covered in blood much more than should have been, given that his neck was sliced cleanly and swiftly. See more »

Quotes

Daenerys Targaryen: [about Drogo] This is not life. When will be as he was?
Mirri Maz Duur: When the sun rises in the west and sets in the east. When seas go dry. When mountains blow in the winds like leaves.

Fire and Blood hits all of the right emotions in this season finale!

Fire and Blood is another classic episode in the first season of Game of Thrones. It hits all of the right emotions and it leaves you on a cliffhanger to what would really happen to some of the Stark family members in the future seasons while focusing on Daenerys and the Lannister family now that Sansa is with Joffrey now after her father Lord Ned was executed for treason.

The story is still well-written, the script is great, the dialog is still fresh, the pacing is still more tighter and it takes it's time to develop the relationship and where it would go in the later seasons. And the music score from Ramin Djawadi hits the emotional moments really well. Much like the previous episode, I have no problem at all with this episode. I'm glad I decided to review the entire first season and only eleven more days until Season 6 arrives. So, overall, another classic episode that is more emotional and satisfying. Thumbs up from me! :)
