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. Marillion, who was present at the Crossroads Inn when Catelyn captured Tyrion and accompanied them to the Vale, makes an appearance in the next books, but never in King's Landing. See more »

Goofs

After Ned Stark is beheaded, we see his sword, Ice, covered in blood. It's unlikely that there would be that much blood on the blade since the slice through his neck by the executioner was so clean and swift. However, it's plain that it was done for dramatic and visual impact. See more »

Quotes

Jeor Mormont: When dead men, and worse, come hunting for us in the night, do you think it matters who sits the Iron Throne?
Jon Snow: No.
Jeor Mormont: Good. Because I want you and your wolf with us when we ride beyond the Wall tomorrow.
Jon Snow: Beyond the Wall?
Jeor Mormont: I will not sit meekly by and wait for the snows. I mean to find out what's happening. The Night's Watch will ride in force against the wildlings, the White Walkers, and whatever else is out there. And we will find Benjen Stark, alive or dead. I will command them myself. So I will ...

Best Debut Season I've ever seen
13 May 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

The title of this review says it all. Never have I been so pulled into a series and made to care for its characters the way this show has done. This season has been overall spectacular in all departments.

One of my favourite qualities of this series is that there are multiple connected story lines happening simultaneously, so the second half of the season is non-stop payoff with episodes drowning in riveting scenes. Almost every actor portrays their part flawlessly and the dialogue is sharp and unforgettable.

The final two episodes might be the two best hours in television, and that says a lot considering the competition.

Best Episode: Baelor (09) Best Actor: Sean Bean
