In the books, the baby Gilly carries is not her son, but Mance Rayder's son. Jon forced her to switch the babies, fearing that Melisandre would sacrifice Mance's son. Gilly's baby (who was not given a name yet) remains at Castle Black. See more »


Sam tells Gilly that it will be autumn soon, despite the fact that summer was deemed officially over at the start of Season 2 in Game of Thrones: The North Remembers. However, Horn Hill is far in the south of Westeros. As we have seen in other parts, the effects of autumn have not yet been felt, such as the colors changing. See more »


Daenerys Targaryen: Every Khal who ever lived chose three bloodriders to fight beside him and guard his way, But I am not a Khal. I will not choose three blood riders. I choose you all. I will ask more of you than any Khal has ever asked of his Khalsar. Will you ride the wooden horses across the black salt sea?

wtf was that?
30 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Read the books and watched the show, this was the first episode i would have rather not watched. I cringed for most of it, it was boring with cliché lines "did they hurt you etc" . The show for the first time looked like i was watching a normal show and not a high budget movie. Brans story line was good, but lasted very few minutes while we had loads of Sam's family, Tomman being a coward and pointless talking. And they showed the Tyrell army in the trailer only to have them withdraw cause tommon joined the faith in the show, why? its like they want viewers to hate the show. At this point they might as well copy and paste Daenerys' speeches to save money, it's the same and seems like they can't do without a "i will take back what is mine" from her at least every other episode. considering the claims that this season cost $10million per episode, this was disappointing.
