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

Jaime Lannister: If your gods are real, if they're just, why is the world so full of injustice?
Catelyn Stark: Because of men like you.
Jaime Lannister: There are no men like me. Only me.

The end of a fantastic season!
20 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So I finished Game of Thrones' first season. First off, I want to say that the episode was fantastic. You know, I expected the battle to take place in this first season's last few episodes but there is really no complaint.

What is seriously fantastic about this series is that it still gives it's characters enough story to fully engage as a character-drama. That is what makes it hit on a deep level emotionally. This episode never became anti-climactic because it still delivers great story-telling. The last scene was truly fantastic, not to mention the musical score. I don't want to wait long for the second season.
