Did You Know?


Yara (Asha in the books) is shown engaging in sexual activity with a female prostitute, though George R.R. Martin responded to a fan inquiry about her sexuality in the novels saying, "I have a number of lesbian and bisexual women in the novels (and a couple who experiment), but Asha is not one of them. Unless I am forgetting something." Gemma Whelan later stated, "I don't think she's bisexual. There's a new saying going around, 'pansexual,' which means if she's up for it ... I don't think she swings any way in particular, other than the way she feels at the time." See more »


Arya is left-handed, but in this episode she consistently uses her right hand. See more »

Tasting as "Game of Thrones" again
6 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

It's because of the quality standards of this kind of episodes, "Game of Thrones" deserves to be criticized when somehow it deviates itself to a Hollywoodesque pretension of becoming a money apparatus for the audiences. Because it indeed damages its quality when this nonsense gets stuck in the heads of the economic maestros. Not only is unnecessary but also detrimental.

This season has been generally like that with its ups and downs being the best of it plainly average because it gets banal when compared with other existent series made to be watched and thrown in the recycle bin.

But this episode stroke me with a exhalation of hope. Truly... (or is it just me hungering for old GOT's primordial quality?) It proved me that the artistic sense of representation, an excellent script, the great dramatizations of great actors leaded by great directors orchestrating great "musicians" surpasses by far the hysteric need of special effects or everything having to be "BIG". Of course special effects are welcome, but they shouldn't be at the top of the pyramid of priorities. They are extras.

Anyway, trash with that big. Big were the majestic dramatizations of Liam Cunningham (Ser Davos), Clive Russell (Brynden 'Blackfish' Tully), Diana Rigg (Olenna Tyrell) and most specially, the incredible Bella Ramsey (Lyanna Mormont). With honourable mentions to Natalie Dormer (Margaery Tyrell), Rory McCann, Ian McShane (Brother Ray) and Tim McInnerny (Robett Glover).

And also BIG were the photography, the wardrobe, the landscapes, the characters developments, this episode.
