Across the Narrow Sea, Daenerys Targaryen is promised to wed Khal Drogo, a warlord of a Dothraki herd of 40000 warriors. This deal is made by Viserys Targaryen, brother of Daenerys Targaryen, who wishes to seek the Throne with the help of Khal Drogo‘s army.

Tyrion Lannister is all set to march for the Wall since it is closest from Winterfell where the Royal family is currently residing under the host Ned Stark.

Catelyn Stark, wife of Ned Stark, mother of Bran, keeps praying to the Gods for his welfare since he is still unconscious. Cersei Lannister visits her and shares an incident that happened with her once upon a time. She shares that she also once had a child, in fact her first child, a male one, who couldn’t survive fever. Knowing of the ill intentions her brother had done, still she poses herself humble and says that she would also pray for Bran’s well being.

Possessing much of the male traits, Arya Stark receives a thin sword from her bastard brother, Jon Snow. She names that sword “The Needle”.
