Trivia

Pycelle describes the Essence of Nightshade, which he gave Cersei, as "dangerous as it is efficacious". This is the second reference in the show to the writings of John Holbrook Vance, the science fiction author whom George R.R. Martin greatly respects, and the second time Pycelle refers to Mr. Vance, following Game of Thrones: What Is Dead May Never Die (2012). It's no wonder that word (efficacious) made it into the script, as Martin adapted this episode himself. See more »

Goofs

When Sandor "the Hound" Clegane returns to the city after fleeing the battle, he calls for a drink, throws away the water and calls for wine. By the time he reaches Sansa's chamber, he is carrying a water skin. See more »

The bells brought the best episode of Game Of Thrones yet.
27 May 2012 | by Nick TepermanSee all my reviews

What a thrill! I don't even know where to start.

"I hate bells..." Varys said. But viewers do love them. Unlike the other wars that happened in Game Of Thrones, or should had happened (Because they were cut off) This was the first one that was showed completely. This episode (written by George R.R. Martin himself) was the best one yet. I was seating on the edge of my seat and couldn't believe what was going on...

The whole season has been developing to get here, the war... and boy what a war... I dare to call it a perfect 10.... I won't spoil it, go ahead and watch it!
