Trivia

While promoting this episode, HBO heavily implied it would be set in one location and cover a single battle, similar to Game of Thrones: Blackwater (2012) and Game of Thrones: The Watchers on the Wall (2014). Both the trailer and the promotional images only showed the Northern story line and the only synopsis released for the episode was the vague, "Terms of surrender are rejected and accepted", with no indication of scenes in Meereen. Other than the aforementioned single-battle episodes, this episode features the fewest story lines with only two, the North and Meereen. See more »

Goofs

When Ramsay retreats to Winterfell, he appears to have a dagger with him on his lower back. However, this dagger is missing when Jon confronts him inside Winterfell. See more »

Theon Greyjoy: Not my claim.
[Theon nods to Yara]
Theon Greyjoy: Hers.
Daenerys Targaryen: And what's wrong with you?
Theon Greyjoy: I'm not fit to rule.
Tyrion Lannister: We can agree upon that at least.
