    [TWoW Spoilers] Barristan

    The Ottoman Empire had issues with large slave soldier classes. Look up the Mamluks and Janissaries.

    We only assume the fourth warlock was Pyat Pree. He's never named in Euron's story and it isn't really important that the warlock be confirmed to be Pyat Pree, so nothing needs to be changed on the show.

    The conflict with Bronn was just to show that they were both badasses and it was added for the show. Sandor left the battle because he's surrounded by fire and absolutely terrified of it. He couldn't stay in the King's service after refusing to fight (and he was surely tired of being the Lannisters' dog) so he said "fuck it". In the books Sandor simply offers to take Sansa away from King's Landing, not to Winterfell. It doesn't make any sense in the show universe or the book for him to offer to take her from one (about-to-be) occupied city to another, but that's many of the show changes in a nutshell.

    The people who have been arguing in circles about Sansa for hours need to take their discussion to a separate thread. You're off topic.

    It was explicitly said by Loras that his brother Garlan was Renly's Ghost because he fit Renly's armor better.

    To sum up for those who may have missed it and might be inclined to nitpick: -Ser Mandon slashed Tyrion. He still has his nose, though. -Loras wore Renly's armor (no Garlan to be seen) and led the vanguard against Stannis's men. It's not 100% clear if Stannis saw him or not, to be honest, but it sure looked like he was seeing a ghost at one point. -The Hound cut one person in half length-wise and another in half height-wise. :cool4: -We heard parts of The Rains of Castamere. Twice! Once as a drinking song and once during closing credits. -We saw both red and green flames among the ships because while wildfire burns green, sails and wood still burn red-orange. -I'm not sure if Cersei said she was 4 or "(a) fool" when her mother died. I'm going to choose to believe I heard the latter. Accents! -No Salladhor Saan this episode. Consequently we don't see Stannis's escape at all, though we do see his men running for the ships. -Stannis was being pulled away from the battlements by his own men. His fury simply wouldn't allow him to leave his throne behind under his own power. -Lightbringer wasn't burning or even glowing, but it decapitated a guy pretty damn well. In the end that's what you really want out of your legendary swords.

    Why would Tywin leave a child with the Mountain? Guess he forgot what happened last time he did that. :dunno:

    50,000 is a semi-historical troop number. When the Young Dragon conquered Dorne he over-estimated Dornish strength at 50,000 spears, possibly to make his victory seem more impressive. Since then it's been assumed by outsiders (whose only resource is Daeron I's account) that Dorne can field an army of 50,000. The benefit to the Martells of letting this misinformation stand is clear. When Quentyn gives this number to Dany he's surrounded by strangers, but even if they were alone it would just be easier to give 50,000.as the strength. Compare with the Persian army under Xerxes I, which was estimated to be between 2.5-4 million by Greek sources when in fact it was much, much smaller.
