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 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

Quotes

Jon Snow: Why do you read so much?
Tyrion Lannister: Look at me and tell me what you see.
Jon Snow: Is this a trick?
Tyrion Lannister: What you see is a dwarf. If I had been born a peasant, they might have left me out in the woods to die. Alas, I was born a Lannister of Casterly Rock. Things are expected of me. My father was the Hand of the King for twenty years.
Jon Snow: Until your brother killed that king.
Tyrion Lannister: ...Yes. Until my brother killed him. Life is full of these little ironies. My sister married the new king, and my repulsive nephew will be king after ...

The Kingsroad continues where the first episode left off in an interesting way
12 April 2016 | by (United States) – 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 does a good job continuing where the first episode left off. The character relationships are still excellent, the acting is still superb, the scenery is still gorgeous, the script is well-written, and the music score from Ramin Djawadi continues to be beautiful in every word. My only quibble is that it did drag, but the pacing is a bit more tighter this time around. So, overall, good episode.
