Goofs

Jaqen H'ghar tells Arya that the "Red God" is owed three deaths. Some believe this to be a goof, as Jaqen does not worship R'hllor but the Many-Faced God. However, George R.R. Martin has clarified that as Arya rescued Rorge, Biter and Jaqen from death by fire, it is the Red God (just one of the faces of the Many-Faced God) to whom three deaths are owed. See more »

Quotes

Ser Jorah Mormont: [to Daenerys] You have a good claim: a title, a birthright. But you have something more than that: you may cover it up and deny it, but you have a gentle heart. You would not only be respected and feared, you would be loved. Someone who can rule and should rule. Centuries come and go without a person like that coming into the world. There are times when I look at you, and I still can't believe you're real.

Some interesting developments
23 June 2019 | by IamIngeSee all my reviews

This and the previous episode does not constitute the best stretch of the series. Still, this episode nicely sets the stage for interesting things to come.
