Storyline

News of Ned Stark's execution spreads quickly and Robb Stark vows to get vengeance. Robb's banner-men declare him to be King of the North. At Castle Black, Jon decides to desert the brotherhood and join Robb's army. Sam and his other friends have something else in mind. Having been rescued by a Night's Watchman, Arya begins her travels north to the wall. Impressed by Tyrion's good advice, Tywin sends him to King's Landing to act as the King's Hand while he is occupied with the war. Daenerys learns that she has lost the baby and realizes the error she made in trying to keep Drogo alive. At his funeral, she boldly walks into his funeral pyre and the outcome is a surprise to everyone but her. Written by garykmcd

Trivia

S1E10 featured the head of former president George W. Bush as a prop in a beheading scene. After an official apology from HBO the episode was pulled from all digital platforms, including HBO Go and iTunes. Also all shipments of the DVD box set featuring the show creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss' commentary that drew attention to the use of the head as a prop, were halted. After editing and altering the head the episode was put back online June 25, 2012. See more »

Goofs

At the end of the episode when the Dothraki all kneel after Daenerys Targaryen stands up, the men behind her next to the horses drop completely on the ground. However, in the wider shot of the scene, the men are still standing with just their heads down. When the final shot is widened further, some of the men near the horses have disappeared. 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 »

It couldn't keep up with the rest of the episodes
20 June 2011 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

I love this show. It's something like I hadn't seen in a very long time. The way it's made, produced, directed and acted. It's just fantastic.

I spent my weekends anxious to see the next episode, even though I read the book. And I was even more anxious to see the last episode, naturally. And it was going great... until the last scene.

Such a show, and they couldn't achieve a good finale. I cried my eyes out when I read the ending of the book. With the last paragraphs, my jaw came down like an anvil, so of course, I had great expectations about the last episode.

They made it 52 minutes long, and I think they should have made it 56 minutes (which is the average length of every episode) to add the little things that were left out from the book, but made such a great ending. For example, a great part when the bloods of the blood of the Khal deny their allegiance with Daenerys.

I also think that they give too much relevance to the Winterfell prostitute, who never appears in the book. She's beautiful indeed and a good actress, but still, I think her only good appearance is in the previous episode when she's in Littlefinger's brothel with the other girl and he gives a great speech. The other appearances, including the one in this last episode, mislead the characters personifications that pay for her companionship.

It's a real pity, and I'm sad I couldn't feel the emotions I was expecting to feel at the end. All the other episode's endings are fantastic, but I think this last one is the exception to the rest.

I really liked the rest of the episode nevertheless, and I'm looking forward to the second season, and hope it's as good as this one.
