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.

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 »

The Boy King Rules Without Direction
24 April 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is directed at the plotting. I am thoroughly enjoying this wonderful series. One thing that continues to strike me, however, is the absolute ruthlessness of most of the people. Has everyone been disenfranchised? Is everyone living in fear? Ambition seems to be the utter driving force for most; that is understandable. But from his birth, Joffrey has been promised the kingdom. Like Macbeth, he plays most foul for it. His mother watches his machinations, but he is the one character that I despise the most among many. He appears to be a sociopath or a sadist. He kills for pleasure, not for ambition. Meanwhile, his mother sits next to him, barely batting an eye. I'm look forward to what happens between these two. There is no mercy, as we find out with Ned, who is willing to confess to save his daughters but doesn't figure the consequences. The armies are meeting. Snow has received a sword but has vowed to the knights. Khal Drogo has suffered an infection and appears to be dying, and the Missus goes to a sorceress for advice to try to keep him alive.
