The fourth episode of Game of Thrones, entitled Cripples, Bastards and Broken Things, has a steady supply of all of the aforementioned outsiders and invalids. Jon Snow continues to face challenges as he trains to become a brother of the Night's Watch, while young Bran Stark - whose dreams are being haunted by a mysterious three-eyed crow - struggles to come to terms with his new life as a parapelegic.
Arrivals, false glory and palace intrigue are the primary concerns of the third instalment of HBO's Game of Thrones. The episode is entitled “Lord Snow”, though Jon Snow plays a relatively minor role in the episode as a whole, and is not technically a nobleman. Following the Stark family's arduous journey from Winterfell, the episode begins with Ned's uncomfortable arrival in King's Landing, where he assumes the title of Hand of the King.
With the introduction and exposition heavy first episode behind it, Game of Thrones now moves onto the business of the story. In the wake of shocking conclusion of the first episode (incest and attempted child murder still qualify as shocking, right?), the second episode, titled "The Kingsroad", quite literally takes the action on the road. Many characters embark on journies that will shape the events of the entire season, and indeed the rest of the series.
