Executive Producer Jason Rothenberg has claimed that this episode is one of the best ever made. In a promo video he said, "Episode 4 is called Watch the Thrones, its a reference to the Kanye West record. Its as good an episode as I think we have ever made, written by Dorothy Fortenberry and directed by Ed Fraiman."
The showrunner shared, "There are two leadership positions that are two leadership positions that are in question in the episode – one in Arkadia, and one in Polis. The Ice Queen stages her coup. Brenda Strong [plays Ice-Queen] who is incredible, and I think people will love to hate her."
"Lexa is matched up against her son Roan in a death match, single combat. Meanwhile in Arkadia, Pike has just come back from the abyss of episode 3, having lost 36 of his people in Mount Weather," Rothenberg explained.
Meanwhile, Alycia Debnam-Carey who plays Lexa talked about her big fight scene with Roan in an interview with IGN. She noted that it was important to see Lexa in action and added, "And [this] actually proves her strength and the reason why she's hailed as a strong Commander."
Debnam-Carey praised her co-star Zach McGowan [Roan], who is experienced with action scenes, thanks to his role in Starz series The Black Sails.
The 22-year-old actress said, "Zach makes me look so much better than I am, so thanks to him I look much better sword fighting, but it was so fun. It was very fast paced and the stunt team was so great to organize time where we could learn it. I was so excited. I always wanted to do a fight scene – a sword fight! It was the first time I've ever done one. We did it over a day and I was sore for like three days after. But it was great."
