When Razdal offers gifts to Daenerys, his servants bring two chests with gold, two men carrying each. Gold is one of the densest materials, thus each of the ingots shown would weigh around 20 kg (44 lbs). The total weight of each chest would require a forklift truck. See more »
This episode isn't nearly as excellent as episode 4, but everything else makes it very worthwhile.
Yes, some of the pacing could've used some more fixing, but it doesn't matter. The storyline/script is still well-written, the relationships are still interesting, the performances still shine, the some of the pacing is fine, the directing and editing is sharp and focused, the music score is still gorgeous, the scenery is still beautiful, and the characters along with the new characters continue to be compelling to this day including Tyrion Lannister. So, overall, another great episode for Season 3.
