Revealing mistake: At the beginning of the episode, Robb and Blackfish Tully are pushing Hoster Tully's funeral boat down the river. When they climb back onto the dock, there is already a trail of water going from the steps and ending where Robb ends up standing. None of the other characters standing on this portion of the dock have wet clothes, meaning none of them went into the river, indicating that the trail of water was from previous takes.Phaneron
Continuity mistake: At the climax of the Red Wedding massacre, Robb crawls towards his dead wife Talisa from the direction of the doors, which are at the opposite side from Walder Frey's throne. Robb turns Talisa onto her back from her left side (ie. he is on the right hand side of her body), and looks down at her face. This means that Talisa is lying in such a way that, if facing Walder's throne, her head is on the right and her feet on the left, towards where Catelyn is holding Walder's wife hostage and pleading for Robb's life. However, when Walder refuses, Robb has changed position and is now on the left side of Talisa's body, which is presumed to be facing the same direction as before as there is no reason for it to have changed. Robb then turns towards Catelyn who is still on the left side of the room (if facing from the door), and is stabbed by Roose Bolton. As Robb collapses to his death, looking directly at Catelyn, he lands next to Talisa, whose head is now closest to Catelyn with her feet facing the other way, meaning that her body has somehow rotated by 180° in a matter of seconds. This is an especially bad mistake considering that several people have claimed the Red Wedding was completed in one take, which is not possible if this error exists unless Oona Chaplin for some reason decided out of boredom to play spin the bottle with her own body while out of shot, which would have interfered with Richard Madden's position anyway.

Trivia: The horse heart that Daenerys eats was actually made of gelatin, and genuinely tasted dreadful - her physical revulsion at eating it is real. It had dyed pasta to simulate veins, and was injected with fake sugary blood, which attracted flies. The blood was so sticky and ended up covering Emilia Clarke to such an extent that after filming it glued her to the toilet seat.Jon Sandys
