According to the novel, it was not Bronn but Ser Jacelyn "Ironhand" Bywater who replaced Janos Slynt as the commander of the City Watch. See more »


When Sam and the other rangers discuss things such as corpses farting, just before the end there's a shot over Sam's left shoulder. At the back of his fur coat can be seen the collar of a padded winter jacket sticking up with some sort of metal ring in it. When he says something about turnips and walks away, the collar's been tucked in. See more »


Lommy Greenhands: [after the goldcloaks threaten Yoren and his recruits] If they come back, I say we yield. Gendry's the one they want. Don't want to get caught in the middle of a battle.
Hot Pie: I ain't afraid of no battles.
Arya Stark: If you got within a mile of a battle, you'd fill your pants.
Hot Pie: I've seen lots of battles. I saw...
Arya Stark: Liar.
Hot Pie: I saw a man kill another man just outside a tavern in Flea Bottom. Stabbed him right in the neck.
Lommy Greenhands: Two men fighting isn't a battle.
Hot Pie: They had armor on.
Arya Stark: So?
Hot Pie: So, if they've got armor on, it's a battle.

Nothing is happening
13 May 2012 | by (Thailand) – See all my reviews

I know it is based on a book, but couldn't they have done something to make it just a little bit interesting? Nothing is really happening.

First season was awesome but now it is just a lot of blablabla. The only good and positive thing with some excitement is Tyron Lannister. He is an awesome character that keeps it all from falling down.

I really hope it gets better.

Stark family where are youuuu? King Slayer where are youuuu????

Have to write a few more lines to get this review published. But I cant really come up with more to tell. It has so far been a big disappointment
