In the trial by combat, Sandor "the Hound" Clegane keeps destroying parts of his opponent's shield (one strike knocks off almost half the wooden facing), but the next moment it is whole. See more »
It was a bitch of a siege.
Mm. You were first through the breach at Pike.
The second. Thoros of Myr went in alone, waving that flaming sword of his.
Thoros of Myr. Bloody madman. Robert knighted you after the battle?
Proudest moment of my life. One knee in the dust, the king's sword on my shoulder, listening to the words: "In the name of the warrior I charge you to be brave." All I could think of was how badly I had to piss.

Not nearly as excellent as episode 4, but still great
Kissed By Fire doesn't live up the high standards left by And Now His Watch Is Ended, but it's still another great episode for Season 3. My only quibble is that the pacing's a little bit too long, but again, it doesn't matter and everything else holds up fine.
The story/script is still well-written, the performances are still solid, the directing and editing is still sharp, the music score's still beautiful, the relationships continue to shine, and the story-arcs for the Stark and Lannister family continue to be interesting and makes you want to see what's in store for them next. So, overall, not nearly as excellent as episode 4, but still great. :)
