Trivia

This is the first episode not to feature any Stark family member, or even one of their closest allies (like Brienne of Tarth or Samwell Tarly). This was not a deliberate choice. Normally, scenes shot for one episode are often used in others, so there would usually be a short scene featuring one of the Stark children in every episode. However, in this case, the Lannister plot took so much focus that they couldn't find a place to feature the Stark family or their allies. See more »

Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[last lines]
Tyrion Lannister: Father, I wish to confess. I wish to confess!
Tywin Lannister: You wish to confess?
Tyrion Lannister: [to the crowd] I saved you. I saved this city. All your worthless lives. I should have let Stannis kill you all.
[crowd becomes outraged]
Tywin Lannister: Tyrion, do you wish to confess?
Tyrion Lannister: Yes, father. I'm guilty. Guilty. Is that what you want to hear?
Tywin Lannister: You admit you poisoned the king?
Tyrion Lannister: No. Of that, I'm innocent. I'm guilty of a far more monstrous crime. I'm guilty of being a dwarf.
Tywin Lannister: You are not on trial for being a dwarf.

Tyrion's hearing is finally underway and it's not as satisfying as he hopes.
9 January 2015 | by champion_qusaiSee all my reviews

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.
