In this week’s Inside the Episode, David Benioff and D.B.Weiss take us behind the scenes of “The Laws of Gods and Men” for a closer look at the role of the Iron Bank, and Davos’ stirring speech in favor of his one true King, Stannis Baratheon. They also discuss Yara’s failed attempt to save her brother, and Tywin taking advantage of a crisis, finally getting what he wants from Jaime and getting rid of Tyrion in one fell swoop. Director Alik Sakharov also talks about the push and pull between the Lannister’s at the trial, and Shae’s testimony pushing Tyrion over the edge to threaten Tywin’s grand plan.
This week we also get a great ‘Anatomy of a Scene’ video detailing Tyrion’s trial. The showrunners, Director, Writer, Set Director, and actors all break down the complicated sequence of the trial, the rifts created between the characters and their underlying struggles.
George R.R. Martin explains the history of the Iron Bank of Braavos.
Sibel Kekilli shares her thoughts on why Shae gave her testimony against Tyrion.
