Game of Thrones: Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things   First Watch 
February 7, 2015 5:32 PM - Season 1, Episode 4 - Subscribe

Tyrion Lannister stops at Winterfell on his way back to King's Landing and gets a frosty reception from Robb Stark, despite an act of kindness for Bran. Samwell Tarly joins the Night's Watch, and Jon becomes his friend and protector. Daenerys arrives at Vaes Dothrak and finally stands up to Viserys. Eddard Stark continues to investigate the death of Jon Arryn. King Robert Baratheon hosts a grand tourney for Eddard's investiture as Hand of the King, to Ned's discomfort. Catelyn and Ser Rodrik Cassel stop at the Crossroads Inn on the way home and set a chain of events into motion which will have dire consequences.

Game of Thrones: Inside the Episode #4, on Daenerys realizing Viserys is incapable of leading a kingdom, let alone leading an army; John Snow finding himself as a natural leader and in opposition to the methods of Ser Alliser Thorne; Sansa's disillusion of the "noble" reality in Kings Landing; and Bran's first notion that he might have traded his legs for some other ability.

I'm kind of amazed at Tyrion's silence when he's abducted by Catelyn- you'd think he'd be pointing out that he stopped by Winterfell and saw Robb and gave Bran a gift. This would seem to be a time where his gift with words would come in handy.

I had filed Thorne away as a total jerk. I guess when you've spent a couple months eating your dead comrades, seeing them as so much 'fresh meat' is understandable.

Nah, he's still an asshole.
