Game of Thrones

The Spoils of War - S7-E4

Continuity mistake: In order to save him from Drogon's fire at the very end of the episode Jaime is thrust by Bronn into water about 40 feet deep. This shouldn't have been possible especially after Jamie is shown galloping on his horse along the watery beach side just moments before.

Suggested correction: As shown in the following episode, the undercurrents had carried them some distance down-river.

Unacceptable. An undercurrent may explain how they eventually got to the other side of the lake but not why the water on the shore became so deep so quickly.

Mhysa - S3-E10

Joffrey: I am the king! I will punish you.
Tywin: Any man who must say "I am the king" is no true king.

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.
