After the attempted assassination of young Bran, Catelyn leaves for King's Landing to see her husband, convinced that the Lannisters were behind the attempt. On arrival, she is met by a former beau, Petyr Baelish, who tells her that the knife used in the attack on Bran was his - until he lost it in a wager to Tyrion Lannister a year ago. When presented with the evidence, Ned isn't convinced. He's kept busy as the King's Hand and is shocked at King Robert's spendthrift ways. Cersei tells her son Joffrey that when he is King, he can do anything he wants. Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys begins to act like a queen and has a confrontation with her brother who makes it clear that he is in charge. She also realizes she is pregnant. At the wall, Ned's illegitimate son Jon Snow undergoes training to become a member of the Night's Watch. Written by
According to the novels, Jaime was fifteen on the day he participated the campaign against the Kingswood Brotherhood. He did not kill any of the outlaws, but crossed swords with the Smiling Knight and saved his master Lord Crakehall from Big Belly Ben. As a reward for his valor, Jaime was knighted on the battlefield by Ser Arthur Dayne. See more »
When Lord Stark is walking into the throne room for the first time, the number of steps he visibly and audibly goes down do not correspond to the actual amount of steps he descended (which can be seen when the camera angle changes to a front view of Stark). See more »
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 »

Lord Snow is another good episode although not the same extent at the previous two
After an attempted assassination, Ned Stark leaves for the King's landing with Arya and Sansa. Once they reach there, Ned learns that King Robert is bankrupted and will have Sansa marry Joffrey. Meanwhile, Jon Snow undergoes training to become a member of the Night's Watch.
Lord Snow is another good episode in the first season, although not the same extend as the previous two. The pacing did get a bit tedious although it does a fine job to see what would happen once the Stark family stay with King Robert and his family. And while the dialog remains a bit fresh, it's not nearly as solid as the dialog in the first two episodes. However, those are the two complaints I have with the episode because everything else turned out fine.
The story is still good, the script is still well-written, the performances are still great, and once again, the scenery and music score from Ramin Djawadi are beyond beautiful. Also, the conversations between Lord Ned and King Robert is interesting enough as are the other characters including a scene where he talks to Arya about why she hates Joffrey.
So, overall, not nearly as good as the first two, but another good episode.
