Storyline

When King Robert learns that Daenerys and the Dothrakis are preparing for war, he decides to attack first. Ned is against the idea saying they should go slowly and learn more but the King calls him a weakling and dismisses him as the King's Hand. Playing in the dungeons, Arya overhears two men plotting against her father. She tells him what she heard and he decides the time has come for him to return to Winterfell. He delays his departure when given the opportunity to speak to the last person his predecessor spoke to, a whore who gave Robert another illegitimate son. The delay is costly however and leads to a serious injury. Catelyn meanwhile takes Tyrion to her sister Lysa, who also happens to be the John Arryn's widow. Written by garykmcd

1.The one is who is complaining about violence. depicts.Singing high praises for literally everything else and then giving low rating just because of violence .This is an a different word which is heavily based on the medieval times and it maybe had even more violence than the TV show .

2.One who is complaining about season 8. This is an episode from Season 1 which had a great writing and this is one of the best episodes of season 1 and GOT.Do not rate it low just because you did not like season 8.Go to s8 episodes and rate them low.Nothing could be more irrelevant.
