Storyline

Sansa begs King Joffrey to spare her father's life. With his mother's support he agrees to spare him provided Ned publicly confesses that he is a traitor and recognizes him as the rightful king. Ned refuses at first but soon recognizes that the lives of his children are at stake and eventually agrees. Arya has eluded capture living in the town and scrounging for food. She goes to the square when she hears her father is to appear. What happens is something no child should have to witness. Tyrion arrives at his father's camp but the elder Lannister is dismissive of his diminutive son. He also tells him that he will be in the vanguard of the attack to take place the next day against Robb Stark's forces arriving from the north. For his part, Robb is proving to be an able field general and takes a Lannister prisoner. Daenerys finds she has little influence after Drogo falls ill and is unable to ride. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Maester Aemon: Tell me, did you ever wonder why the men of the Night's Watch take no wives and father no children?
Jon Snow: No.
Maester Aemon: So they will not love. Love is the death of duty. If the day should ever come when your lord father was forced to choose between honor on the one hand and those he loves on the other, what would he do?
Jon Snow: He... He would do whatever was right. No matter what.
Maester Aemon: Then Lord Stark is one man in 10,000. Most of us are not so strong. What is honor compared to a woman's love? And what is duty against the ...

Jaw dropping game changer
6 September 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It's taken me a while to wrote this review, due to my feelings after watching it.

WOW if I disliked the sissy Prince Joffery before this episode I despise him now!! And I've gone from wanting to slap him, to wanting to outright kill the little prat.

Daenerys has to make a difficult decision, as does honourable Ned Stark. Oh noble Ned and his honour. His so Robb is forced to make some tough decisions of his own too. An old charmer named Walder Frey makes an appearance, and is decidedly sleazy.

My favourite scene of the episode for me was a drinking game between Tyrion, Bronn and a prostitute Shae, where he revealed the tale of his doomed first marriage. If this was the year he won the Emmy it is deserved. I have loved watching his performances and he is a firm favourite of mine.

But the most memorable part of this episode still has to be the end. I was in a furious shock!! And was straight on the phone to my brother (who has seen them all) going mad!!

As I said in previous reviews, I am not a Sean Bean fan, and feel he is the weak link in everything I see him in (Goldeneye, Ronin, LOTR). But I love his Ned Stark, and he is excellent here.

All bets are off after this episode.
