Did You Know?


This episode ignited a minor controversy: nearly a dozen reviews referred to it as a "bottle episode", a term defined by Merriam-Webster, coincidentally only added days before, as "an inexpensively produced episode of television that is typically confined to one setting". Other television writers argued the episode was too expansive to warrant using the term. See more »


Jaime claims that everything he did (including the killing of Aerys) was for his house and his family. Actually, he did it to prevent Aerys from killing the residents of King's Landing by wildfire (Game of Thrones: Kissed by Fire). See more »


Arya Stark: When was the last time you fought for anyone but yourself?
Sandor 'The Hound' Clegane: I fought for you, didn't I?

Crazy Credits

SPOILER: The song "Jenny of Oldstones" plays over the closing credits. The song is about a royal scion who gave up the throne for the love of his life, which reflects upon Jon and Daenerys's relationship. See more »

I'm sorry but clearly some people on here have never properly watched the show or have just recently binged it all and just skipped past the "boring" talking bits?! Seriously GOTs has always been character driven, that's why when the big moments happen you feel so emotionally involved! Next weeks Episode 3 is a 1hour 22 minute battle sequence that has been set up perfectly by the first 2 episodes. Those of you leaving 1 star reviews need to get a grip and have a serious reality check! I'm not saying everyone should give this episode a 9 or 10 but anything below a 7 is madness. If you just want mindless action and fighting with no character driven storylines go and watch a Transformers movie!
