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 »
In the courtroom scene, when Tywin asks Tyrion if he wishes to confess, the camera shifts to Jamie momentarily. You can see Nikolaj Coster-Waldau move the fingers on his right hand as he is not wearing the gold prosthetic. See more »
Tyrion's hearing is finally underway and it's not as satisfying as he hopes.
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.
