Main Characters in this Episode
Robert tells Ned to send a raven and restore the peace because he can’t rule the Kingdoms if two major families are at each other’s throats. He confides to him that he is brother he chose (unlike his blood brothers he never loved) and restores Ned to the position of King's Hand. Robert is leaving the Throne to him while he goes on a hunt.
In Vaes Dothrak, Daenerys is admiring her dragon eggs. Even thou they are only stone fossils now, she putts them onto a fire in hope that they might hatch. Irri enters the tent and Daenerys’ instinct makes her grab the egg. Irri scared that khaleesi might get burned grabs the egg from her. But, Daenerys is completely unharmed and Irri’s hands are burned.
Mord: [angrily] Dwarf man making noise!
Tyrion Lannister: How would you like to be rich?
Mord: [beats Tyrion again] Dwarf man still making noise!
Tyrion Lannister: [desperately] My family is rich. We have gold, lots of gold. I'm prepared to give you lots of gold if...
Mord: No gold!
Tyrion Lannister: Well, I don't have it HERE.
Mord: No gold!
Mord: Fuck off!
Bronn: ...he did.
- Goof (continuity error): When Robb is fighting off the bandits, his sword's blade is already bloodied before he's able to cut anyone down, though the blade was clean when he removed it from the scabbard.
- Goof (factual errors): While pure gold requires 1064.18 °C (1947.52 °F) to melt - a temperature not achievable in a simple campfire - many gold alloys melt at considerably lower temperatures. Pure gold is almost never used in jewelry because it is much too soft, so we can assume Khal Drogo's gold is alloyed. Hence the fact that it melts is not a goof. However it does melt extremely quickly over the course of just a few seconds and that is not realistic. You cannot even melt the equivalent amount of chocolate that fast in a campfire.
- SPOILER: According to the novel, Bronn killed Ser Vardis Egen without throwing him out of the Moon Door. The Moon Door was also not located in the floor, but rather was a side door.
- When Viserys Targaryen tries to steal the dragon eggs, he mocks Ser Jorah Mormont who blocks his path by saying "And yet here you stand", to which Mormont replies "And yet here I stand." According to semi-canon sources, "Here We Stand" is the motto of House Mormont. It is not clear whether this is an intentional reference.
