Did You Know?


When asked at the Iron Bank how old Tywin is, Davos says that he is 67. Charles Dance, who plays Tywin, was 67 years old at the time of broadcast. See more »


The bathtub shown is not something that could be used for a hot bath. It is practically impossible to fill that size of tub from buckets of water, as the water from the first bucketful would have chilled long before another could be heated given the size of the fire shown. Most tubs had a metal or ceramic base under which embers from the fire would be placed to heat the water. See more »


Ramsay Snow: Do you love me, Reek?
Theon Greyjoy: Yes, of course, my lord.
Ramsay Snow: Good. Because I need you to do something for me. Something very important. There's a castle, you see. Some bad men hold this castle. I need your help to take this castle back.
Theon Greyjoy: But how can...
Ramsay Snow: I need you to play a role. To pretend to be someone you're not.
Theon Greyjoy: Pretend to be who?
Ramsay Snow: Theon Greyjoy.

Tyrion Betrayed
7 June 2015 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Our dwarf brother is again the target of his own family. He rests in prison until Jaime comes to see him. Jaime tells him that if he pleads for his life, he will be saved and put in the guard to live out his days. He shows himself to be a man of great resolve and integrity when those who have been true to him (and vise versa) look out for their own butts. His own father presides and, as is the case with kangaroo courts, allows him no defense. Even Shae is brought in to testify against him. Meanwhile Jaime seems filled with guilt and anger. We all know that his father has no care for any of his children, only his own lineage.

We get to see the Iron Bank and how Stanis is able to get money from there. We also have to wonder what Theon/Reek is being asked to do after he has been brutalized into losing his identity; now dead to his sister who tried to save him, he is going to become a force of some kind. He will now play Theon, who, for now, he's never heard of.

News of Dany and her forces (and dragons) is becoming common knowledge to the Lannisters and is a force to be reckoned with. Very well done episode.
