Trivia

The song "The Rains of Castamere" was written about the Lannisters' crushing victory over the rebellious House Reyne of Castamere and House Tarbeck. When House Farman of Faircastle grew truculent, playing the song at Lord Farman's hall was enough to make him reconsider his position. See more »

Goofs

When Sandor "the Hound" Clegane returns to the city after fleeing the battle, he calls for a drink, throws away the water and calls for wine. By the time he reaches Sansa's chamber, he is carrying a water skin. See more »

Quotes

Joffrey Baratheon: Hound, tell the Hand that his King has asked him a question.
Sandor Clegane: The King has asked you a question.
Tyrion Lannister: Sir Lancel, tell the Hound to tell the King that the Hand is extremely busy.
Lancel Lannister: The Hand of the King would like me to tell you to tell the King that...
Joffrey Baratheon: If I tell the Hound to cut you in half, he'll do it without a second thought.
Tyrion Lannister: That would make me the quarter-man. Just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Best episode on TV
28 May 2012 | by desvikSee all my reviews

What an episode . . . The real treat from HBO. The work done by director is awesome. According to me ... best i have seen on TV serial. Blackwater bay was one of the big battles of the books and a complete episode just for this battle was amazing. Game of thrones is setting new standard on small screens.

A truly justice done to George R R Martin books. I have read all five books of Ice and Fire. And according to me Third book gives damn shocks. Heard that book 3 will be divided into 2 seasons. That means 20 episodes story line will go even more deep. Damn we have to wait for future episodes and also for Winds of winter to release.

Hats off to you guys.
