Walk of Punishment - S3-E3

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.

Dark Wings, Dark Words - S3-E2

Continuity mistake: When Brienne of Tarth is facing off against Jaime Lannister on the bridge, in a shot from behind the blade is angled upwards, not touching her arm, then in the immediate next shot from the front the blade is now lying along her arm.

And Now His Watch Is Ended - S3-E4

Revealing mistake: When Karl kills Craster, you can see the blood packet in Craster's mouth right before he spits up blood.

The Rains of Castamere - S3-E9

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.

The Bear and the Maiden Fair - S3-E7

Continuity mistake: Jamie is getting his stump tended to and some white ointment is rubbed onto it before it is rebandaged. Before the bandage is placed however, the ointment disappears.

A Golden Crown - S1-E6

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.

Season 1 generally

Question: After watching the show and reading the first book, I can't figure out why people hate Jaime for killing King Aerys. Aerys is referred to as the "Mad King" and more than one person talks about his sick deeds. Even Ned doesn't seem to approve of Jaime's actions, yet Aerys killed his father and brother. Even if Jaime did have a duty to guard the king, didn't he actually do everyone a favor by killing Aerys?

Answer: Basically it's because he broke his vow. A member of the Kingsguard is sworn to protect the king at all costs. Jaime elaborates more on the deed to both Catelyn Stark and Brienne of Tarth, telling Catelyn that no matter what course of action he took, he would be breaking one vow or another (i.e. if he obeyed the king, he would conversely be disobeying his own father), and telling Brienne that the Mad King was planning on burning all of King's Landing, but he did not bother to tell Ned Stark that. Ned Stark felt that killing Aerys was dishonorable and excessive. Robert Baratheon still could have usurped the throne without Aerys being killed.
