Game of Thrones Season 1 Episode 9 Recap
Here comes the episode before the finale. Robb Stark doesn’t want to bow to Joffrey, so he brings all Stark’s bannermen and marches to the South for war. On his way, he meets another problem. He needs to cross The Twins, and in order to do so, he must negotiates with Lord Walder Frey, who owns the crossing. Instead of him, his mother goes to Lord Frey’s to negotiate. She believes that Lord Frey will listen to her and do no harm, because she knows him since she was a child. Lord Frey finally agrees with some conditions, which includes setting a marriage between Arya and one of Frey’s sons when they come of age, and between himself and one of Frey’s daughters. After agreeing to that, he can cross The Twins, and the Trident. Then he splits his army into two, while capturing Jaime Lannister.
In Lannister’s camp, Tyrion wants Bronn to find him a whore so that he can make love before fighting. He finds Shae, and although she is a prostitute, she does match Tyrion perfectly. She can balance Tyrion’s way of thinking and talking. Thus, Tyrion finally tells her why he is always soft to whores. It is because once he was married to a whore, which was actually his father’s trick to teach him a lesson in his youth.
At the Wall, Jon is becoming restless as he hears the news of his brother Robb marching to the South. He really wants to join his brother and he can’t just stand and watch from the Wall. Then he has a conversation with Maester Aemon. He tells Jon that once he also has to deal with the same thing. It was when Robert Baratheon and his army killed all Targaryens, who turn out to be his family. Indeed, he is Aemon Targaryen, one of the two surviving Targaryens besides Dany.
Now, let’s turn to Dany. She is now suffering as Khal Drogo is wounded and the wound is becoming worse. He is almost dead, and Dany is fighting to find a way to keep him alive. Finally she asks Meeri Maaz Duur, the sorcerer she saved in the last episode, to use blood magic to save Drogo’s life. However, ever thing has its price, and so does the blood magic, which requires a blood price. Dany doesn’t realize her decision. She only thinks about Drogo’s life. When the magic is performed, her baby is coming. Ser Jorah then brings Dany inside the tent where the sorcerer performs the blood magic, where actually no one can enter.
We still don’t know what will happen to Dany and Drogo, but we can soon find out what will happen to Ned. He finally agrees to take his words back and admit that he is a traitor, because Sansa has begged to Joffrey. The Queen allows him to go to the Wall and take the Black. However, Joffrey is indeed a monster. Under his reign, he’ll never leave a traitor unpunished. And so Ned Stark’s life is ended. He is beheaded by Ser Ilyn Payne, after making sure that Arya is in the hands of Yoren, a brother of the Night’s Watch. And there is a silence to honor the good-hearted and honorable Hand of Westeros.
