Having demanded a trial by combat, Tyrion must now find someone to fight for him. Jaime would gladly do it but admits that he cannot wield a sword effectively with his left hand. Bronn, who has fought for him once before, has accepted the Queen Regent's offer of an arranged marriage with a noblewoman and so is not available. Tyrion finds a champion in someone unexpected. Brienne and Pod stop at an inn and meet Arya's old friend, Hotpie, who tells them she's alive and probably heading to the Eyrie. Daenerys takes Daario into her bed but seeks advice on ruling from her most trusted source. At the Eyrie, Peter Baelish has shocking news for both Sansa and his wife Lysa.Written by
Alliser Thorne claimed that the tunnel door is made from cold rolled steel. The process of cold rolling steel requires hydraulics, which hadn't been invented yet. He says: "cold raw steel", not rolled steel. See more »

Lives up to the previous episode in a compelling way
Mockingbird is another classic episode. Not only does it live up to the previous episode in a compelling way, but it raises the stakes to what would happen if one person can win the combat to either spare Tyrion or sentence him to death.
The storyline's still compelling, the writing is still superb, the performances still shine especially Peter Dinklage who continues to make Tyrion Lannister more believable, the pacing's great and never drags, the editing and directing are sharp and crisp, the scenery and sets along with the costumes are still neat, and the music score from Ramin Djawadi is even more terrific and suited the combat sequence really well the same way he did for the action in the previous episode. So, overall, another classic episode that engaged me. Thumbs up! :)
