Spoilers 

The trivia items below may give away important plot points.

One of the heads on spikes that Joffrey has placed on the battlements of the Red Keep was a model of former president George W. Bush. After an official apology from HBO the episode was pulled from all digital platforms, including HBO Go and iTunes, and all shipments of the DVD box set featuring the show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' commentary that drew attention to the use of the head as a prop were halted. An updated version of the episode with the head digitally replaced was released online on June 25, 2012.
The episode title is a reference to the words of House Targaryen "Fire and Blood". It has an additional meaning, referring to the magical ritual that hatches Daenerys' dragon eggs.
The birth of Daenerys' dragons marks the first living dragons in nearly 150 years. According to the books, the last dragon died during the reign of King Aegon III in the year 153.
