** Viserys is [[FalseReassurance confident in his safety]] in Vaes Dothrak, since the Dothraki can't spill blood in the city, to the point where he threatens the king and queen. Apparently he doesn't consider that you can have limbs broken and be [[KillItWithFire roasted to death]] without any blood being spilled.

** When Viserys turns up at the feast, Qotho refers to him as "Khal Rhae Mhar", elicting a derisive chuckle from Drogo. In the novel, Khal Rhae Mhar is a mocking title (it translates to "Sorefoot King" in Dothraki) the Dothraki give Viserys behind his back in response to Daenerys confiscating his horse and forcing him to walk.

'''Across the narrow sea''', Daenerys continues her obsession with her dragon eggs. Today she tries putting one on the coals of the fire. Nothing happens, even when she picks it up--including the "Oww, my burnt hands!" reaction you'd expect when someone picks up a red-hot glowing stone. Dany's hands are unblemished. [[{{Foreshadowing}} Huh]]?

Bran is having another "three-eyed crow" dream, venturing deeper into the crypts beneath '''Winterfell''', when Hodor bursts in with the saddle Tyrion designed for him. Next thing we know, Bran is riding around on his horse Dancer, hooting and hollering, whilst Robb and Theon discuss how House Stark should react to Ned's injury. Their strategy session is interrupted by the realization that they've misplaced Bran. (Good going, guys.) Bran is elsewhere in the forest, waylaid now by four wildlings who have made their way south of the Wall, at least one of whom is a deserter from the Night's Watch. Robb and Theon arrive, precipitating a short, tense confrontation, resulting in three dead men dead and the lone woman, Osha, taken prisoner.

In '''the Eyrie''', Tyrion manages, after much slow and careful talking, to convince Mord that helping him will be beneficial, as even an imbecile like Mord turns out to know the good old saying "A Lannister always pays his debts." And so Tyrion tells Mord that he will be richly rewarded if he can relay a message to Lysa Arryn; that he is ready to confess. And it works, as Tyrion is let out of his cell and brought before the court, but much to the fair lady's annoyance, he instead launches into a litany of sins which have to be seen to be believed, while he persists in proclaiming his innocence in the matter of Lord Arryn's death and Bran's botched slaying, and demands a TrialByCombat. Ser Vardis Egen, one of the Knights of the Vale, champions her cause, while Tyrion manages to get Bronn to stand for him.

Back in '''King's Landing''', Ned sits the Iron Throne for the first time in his life, passing judgment on the petitions of riverlanders who have come to King's Landing for justice. They were attacked in the night by a band of raving rapers, led by a man who chopped the head off a horse in anger. "That sounds like someone we know," Littlefinger whispers to Ned. "''[[DontExplainTheJoke The Mountain]]''." They also left behind a bunch of fish, which Littlefinger observes is the sigil of House Tully. "Can you think of ''any'' reason the Lannisters might ''possibly'' have for being angry with your wife?" Ned commissions a force to bring Clegane to justice, led by Lord Beric Dondarrion, and then passes a royal decree stripping Clegane of his lands, titles and knighthood. He also summons The Mountain's master, Tywin Lannister, to court; he must either declare his loyalty or face the same fate. [[ThisMeansWar It's on now, kids]].

It is time for the trial by combat in the '''the Eyrie''', as the light-footed [[CombatPragmatist Bronn]] fights [[KnightInShiningArmor Ser Vardis Egen]], using his heavy gear and the environment against him, and handily dodges his attacks while sticking to striking the knight with small, swift attacks. It's not really a contest, especially since Ser Vardis has Lysa on his side. "Enough, Ser Vardis, finish him," Lysa shouts, after he's already been injured and ''Bronn doesn't have a scratch on him''... and the brave fool obeys. Bronn just dodges the worn-out knight once again, slices his leg, before he gives him the CoupDeGrace and throws him out of the Moon Door. Much to the dismay of the Tully sisters, Tyrion is returned both his freedom and his purse. One takes him out the door, whilst the other goes to Mord. "A Lannister always pays his debts."

More check-ins: In '''King's Landing''', Joffrey visits Sansa, interrupting a pretty serious snark-fest between her and Septa Mordane. He gives her a necklace (and a kiss!) and promises never to mistreat her again. Meanwhile, near '''Winterfell''', Theon finds his favorite whore Ros on the kingsroad, heading to the greener (fleshier?) pastures of the capitol. She gives him one more flash of her cooter. That's the only appropriate word for the circumstances.

It's '''Vaes Dothrak''', and there's a feast. Things are going pretty well for Drogo and Dany until Viserys stumbles in, either drunk or more insane than usual (he was drunk in the book, but the TV show doesn't say anything either way) and calls for his sister. The Dothraki makes fun of him, and Khal Drogo tells Jorah to offer the prince a seat... In the back of the tent. "That is no place for a King!" the self-proclaimed Dragon spits at the humiliation. "You are no King," answers Drogo in common tongue with a scoff. Angered, the Beggar King draws his sword, and holds first Jorah, then Dany at swordpoint, threatening to spill blood in the sacred city. He demands the [[TitleDrop golden crown]] he was promised in exchange for his sister keeping her skin intact. Drogo agrees. Viserys, happy to have his demands met, lets his guard down, only to get grabbed by the Khal's bodyguards.
