The large statue Stannis and Davos pass under in the beginning of the episode is modeled after the Colossus of Rhodes, an ancient Greek landmark of an enormous man, that sailors had to pass under to get to the docks at the city of Rhodes. 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 »

Tyrion's hearing is finally underway and it's not as satisfying as he hopes.
Best episode. The writing, the directing, the intense drama and most of all the standout acting by Peter Dinklage makes this episode the best of the season. Thoroughly improvised, so I've heard, and beautifully written. Shae delivers the performance of her role and gives the proper support to Tyrion Lannister's breakout scene. It's exciting to see the events that lead on from this episode. Tyrion's outburst is the highlight of the entire episode. On the other side we see The City of Braavos.
A must-watch episode of the series.
