Game of Thrones

Cripples, Bastards, and Broken Things - S1-E4

New this month Character mistake: When Jon talks to Sam about almost having sex with Ros, he says that their child, in case of a pregnancy, would have been a bastard named Snow as well. This is impossible, because the bastard surnames (like Snow in the North) are only for acknowledged children of noblemen. Jon's children wouldn't have the right to carry a surname, as he's not a nobleman.

New this month Suggested correction: Actually, it is just for noblemen. Bastards of smallfolk (the peasantry) in Westeros do not receive a bastard surname, only those of noble birth do. But Jon is not smallfolk. Despite being a bastard, he is indeed of noble birth and children of noble bastards are allowed to take the surname for themselves and most do.

New this month Suggested correction: Any child born out of wedlock is a bastard. It's not just a name for noblemen, even peasants have to get married to legitimize their children. Snow is also not a surname, so if Jon and Ros would get married and have a child that child will not be called Snow like his/her father.

A Golden Crown - S1-E6

Continuity mistake: When Tyrion wakes up inside the skycell you can see two skylights in the ceiling of the cell through which the sunlight passes. However, when we get a long shot of the skycells, you can see there's no way for the light to pass through them, as there are no "holes" on the floor of the cells above Tyrion's. (00:13:45)
