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

According to the original novel, the singer who was tried by Joffrey was not Marillion, but an unnamed tavern singer.

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 »

Quotes

Greatjon Umber: [to Robb and the northmen while disputing among who to swear fealty to] My Lords! Here is what I say to these two kings.
[Greatjon spits]
Greatjon Umber: Renly Baratheon is nothing to me, nor Stannis neither. Why should they rule over me and mine from some flowery seat in the South? What do they know of the Wall or the Wolfswood? Even their gods are wrong! Why shouldn't we rule ourselves again? It was the dragons we bowed to... and now the dragons are dead!

pathetic over-hyped medieval soap
13 December 2011 | by (France) – See all my reviews

So we have manipulative characters, more manipulative characters, very blatant plans that unfold way too plainly, stabbing in the back by characters that look so obviously devious there's no surprise, and they even cheat characters so gullible and straight it's not even a challenge. Oh and yes we have the elf looking prince that wants to unite barbarians to reclaim a throne of an empire that doesn't exist anymore ... Hey! that could be a good sitcom! Anyway, I hope that people will realise when they re watch this amateur mess they were caught in the enthusiasm of the hype and have fun at watching it in some years. However 2 characters are charismatic and likable, Tyrion and Arya, and Iain Glen is a good actor. I put a vote of 2 as votes of 1 and 10 are less taken into consideration for the final note (yeah the IMDb rating system is quite broken).
