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

Lord Varys: When I see what desire does to people, what it's done to this country, I am very glad to have no part in it. Besides, the absence of desire leaves one free to pursue other things.

Season 4's Finest hour (so far)
12 May 2014 | by sirajqSee all my reviews

I have really enjoyed this season of Game of Thrones, more so than the previous 3. And it's because of episodes like this.

The Laws of Gods and Men has topped the previous episode as Season 4's Best so far. We get everything in this. Action, Blood, Brimming tension, BRAVOS and some powerful, heartbreaking character moments. The pacing of this episode was consistent, the multiple plots have surprisingly yet to fall flat, with the audience getting some more Reek, if a little too much for our tastes in a deliciously creepy scene.Oh, and i have found that Peter Dinklage's (Tyrion Lannister) performances have been a little too familiar in the past season and a half, but boy didn't he bring it all to the table here. It was a compelling and powerful performance by Dinklage that made the final 10 minutes of this episode some of the most satisfying of the series.

On a whole, this is Game of Thrones at it's best. Sharp Dialogue. Tense action sequences, Stunning Special effects (for a television production) and a powerful ending. A Masterclass. Peter Dinklage... WELCOME BACK!
