At the end of the episode, when the Dothraki all kneel after Daenerys stands up, the men behind her next to the horses drop completely on the ground. However, in the wider shot of the scene, the men are still standing with just their heads down. When the final shot is widened further, some of the men near the horses have disappeared. See more »

I am Daenerys Stormborn of House Targaryen, of the blood of Old Valyeria. I am the dragon's daughter, and I swear to you that those who would harm you will die screaming.
Mirri Maz Duur:
You will not hear me screaming.
I will. But it is not your screams I want. Only your life.

The cities and places featured in the opening credits change as the series progresses. For example, in the first episode, Pentos is shown whereas in later episodes, because it is not pertinent to the episode's narrative, it is not. See more »

The title of this review says it all. Never have I been so pulled into a series and made to care for its characters the way this show has done. This season has been overall spectacular in all departments.
One of my favourite qualities of this series is that there are multiple connected story lines happening simultaneously, so the second half of the season is non-stop payoff with episodes drowning in riveting scenes. Almost every actor portrays their part flawlessly and the dialogue is sharp and unforgettable.
The final two episodes might be the two best hours in television, and that says a lot considering the competition.
Best Episode: Baelor (09) Best Actor: Sean Bean
