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

Trivia

Tyrion's story about Tysha is similar to its version in the novels, with several changes: according to the novels, Tyrion was thirteen at that time, not sixteen; Tysha was the orphaned daughter of crofter, not wheelwright's; after Tysha was gang-raped by the guards while Tyrion was forced to watch, his father forced him to be the last to take her.

Goofs

The Lord Commander of the Night's Watch gives John Snow his family sword. He says that he sent another brother to King's Landing with the white walker hand that his wold tore off. However, John's wolf was outside the building when John battled the zombie, John cut the hand off of the zombie when he was being held up in the air by his neck. I believe in the book the wolf tears the hand off the zombie which is where the dialogue most likely comes from. See more »

Quotes

Shae: Married?
Tyrion Lannister: [annoyed] How did you hear that?

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 »

So Far, the Best Episode
19 April 2014 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Varys visits Ned again in the dungeons and tells what Sansa did to save his life and advises him to accept the offer. Catelyn negotiates with the repulsive Lord Walder Frey the crossing of the river by Robb and his army and Frey accepts provided Arya and Robb marry with his children. Jon Snow receives a valuable sword from Mormont and lives a dilemma to make a choice of helping Robb or stay with the Night's Watch and to live with the consequences for the rest of his life. The infection in the wound of Drogo makes him weak and Daenerys summons the witch to heal him. She tells that a life must be sacrificed in exchange and she kills Drogo's horse. The Lannister army attacks Robb's army and discovers that Robb lured them, leaving only two thousand men behind, while eighteen thousand men have attacked Jaime's army and made him prisoner. Arya sees her father being brought chained in front of the crowd and falsely confessing his treason to save Sansa and Arya. However Joffrey betrays the deal and Ned is beheaded.

"Baelor" is so far, the best episode of "Game of Thrones". I would never expect the fate of Lord Eddard 'Ned' Stark. I do not believe that the witch is making a spell to heal Drogo since he slaughtered her people. My guess is that the life in exchange per Drogo's life will be his unborn child. Joffrey is probably the most despicable character so far. My vote is ten.

Title (Brazil): "Baelor"
