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

Maester Aemon says that his father was King Maekar Targaryen, who was followed by Aemon's brother Aegon, who was then followed by Aerys "the Mad King" Targaryen. In the novels, however, Aerys was the son of Jaehaerys, Aegon's second son, and Aerys was Aemon's great-nephew. See more »

Goofs

In Game of Thrones: The Pointy End, Robb told Catelyn that he rallied 18,000 men; in this episode, Catelyn tells Walder Frey "If you could climb your own battlements, you would see that he [Robb] has 20,000 men outside your walls". See more »

Quotes

Joffrey Baratheon: [announcing Eddard Stark's sentence] My mother wishes me to let Lord Eddard join the Night's Watch. Stripped of all titles and powers, he would serve the realm in permanent exile. And my Lady Sansa has begged mercy for her father. But they have the soft hearts of women. So long as I am your king, treason shall never go unpunished. Sir Ilyn, bring me his head!
