When Maester Aemon is assigning the duties for the stewards he tells Pyp to report to Bowen Marsh in the kitchens. However, when Lord Commander Mormont is assigning the new nights watchmen to their various orders, he tells 'Mick' to go to the kitchens - Pyp should have been included in those sent to the kitchens at the start instead of to the stewards (or Mick should also have been sent to the stewards).

This is the seventh episode of the first season of the Game of Thrones. It's a very good episode, and it one of the better episodes to have appear so far in the first season. The stakes are higher, the feelings are more emotional, and now we have Kings Landing in danger from an enemy across the seas. Also, stay tuned for a great ending. It's an ending that you may or may not have seen coming.
In this episode, "You Win or You Die," King Robert is back from the boar hunt, but he lays dying after a grave injury. Ned Stark confronts Cersei and tells her who her son really is. Jon Snow makes his Night Watch vows, despite feeling unhappy for his new role as steward and the disappearance of his Uncle Benji. Finally, after Vaenarys is nearly poisoned by a man sent by Robert, Drogo calls for war against King Robert.
Overall, this is a great episode. It's one that kind of sad to for various reasons. Once again, we get fantastic acting all around. The final few episodes are going to be something to keep an eye on.
