Storyline

Although his son Bran is lying in bed unconscious from his fall, Ned Stark must return with King Robert to King's Landing. His wife Catelyn stays behind in in Winterfell, though there appears to be little hope of Bran's recovery. The King has agreed that his son Joffrey and Ned's daughter Sansa should marry, uniting their families forever. Problems arise when Joffrey challenges the butcher's boy who is out playing with Sansa's younger sister Arya. Joffrey is injured when Arya's pet wolf attacks him. The King's justice is swift but fair even if his wife Cersei doesn't agree. Meanwhile, Ned illegitimate son heads north to join the Night Watch. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys is having some difficulty accommodating herself to married life. She turns to one of her servants, a slave whose job it once was to pleasure men, to learn how she could make her husband happy. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

According to the novels, Cersei never gave birth to child of Robert. As she revealed to Eddard, she was once pregnant with a child of Robert, but had the child aborted out of hatred for him. Robert was unaware to both the pregnancy and the abortion. See more »

Goofs

(at around 12 mins) At the blacksmith's, as the bellows open and close, the sound of the fire roaring comes when the bellows open to take in air rather than when they close to push air into the fire. See more »

Crazy Credits

The sun tells an important part of the series back story, on its panels. It does so in three segments. First, as the credits start up, the sun depicts how the Targaryens and their dragons conquered Westeros. The second time the sun is shown, a dragon is depicted in a mortal struggle with 3 other animals: The Stag, the Lion and the Wolf. It is a very literal way to show how Robert Beratheon and Ned Stark rebelled, with Tywin Lannister reluctantly supporting them, in the end. Finally, the third time the sun is shown, before the series title enter the scene, a lion (among other animals) is shown "kneeling" to a triumphant Stag. Just as Robert was crowned King after winning the war. See more »

What Will Bran Say?
7 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In Winterfell, Catelyn stays in Bran's room with her son that is in coma while Ned Stark travels with King Robert to King's landing. An assassin tries to kill Bran, but Catelyn protects him and Bran's wolf kills the man. Arya is playing with the butcher's boy nearby the river and Joffrey and Sansa meet them and Joffrey picks fight with the boy that does not react. Arya throws Joffrey's sword in the river and he attacks the girl but her wolf protects Arya. Daenerys has difficulties to sexually satisfy Khal Drogo and her slave teaches her how to please her man. Jon Snow travels with his uncle Benjen to The Wall to join the Night Watch. Catelyn investigates the location where Brans felt and she finds a hair. Meanwhile Bran awakes from his coma.

"The Kingsroad" is the second episode of "Game of Thrones" and shows the injustice and how despicable the Lannisters are. The poor she-wolf is killed to satisfy the nasty Lannister family and Sansa felt the price of her attitude. The Starks are separated and Catelyn now knows that her son might have been thrown off the wall. Jon Snow now knows what The Wall is. What will Bran say if the climax of this good episode. My vote is eight.
