Trivia

This episode marks the introduction of Dubrovnik, Croatia, as a filming location for King's Landing. In the first season, King's Landing was filmed in Malta and Northern Ireland, using a combination of actual footage and CGI. However, according to show-runners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, the Dubrovnik location was so stunning and fit King's Landing so well that very little CGI was needed in many of the background exterior scenes. Dubrovnik was retained as a filming location for every season thereafter, with other locations in Croatia also used for a variety of different places in the series. See more »
