Across the Narrow Sea, things did not turn out well for Daenerys. She lost her child (which was stillborn and covered in scales), and her husband, Khal Drogo is a vegetable. As it turns out, the witch had been against her all along (I’m sure Drogo’s men would have said I told you so, but they all decided to leave). Apparently, she was still angry about the fact that the Khal’s men repeatedly raped her and burned her people alive. I guess some people just can’t help but sweat the small stuff.
Rather than watch her husband suffer, Daenerys smothers him with a pillow.
Not to get sidetracked, but Grand Maester Pycelle might not be as feeble as he seems. After boring Ros the hooker to death with a rambling story, the old man offers to see her out. She refuses, as it would take longer for him to walk to the door than it would for her to see herself out. Once she is gone, he leaps up and begins stretching, but reverts back to his hunch-back status before leaving his home. I guess you don’t get to serve three kings by making yourself seem like a threat.
At the wall, Jon Snow is still conflicted about going to help his brothers. In the middle of the night, he makes a run for it. But Sam and his other friends catch up to him and convince him to return. The next day, he rides out with Mormont on a massive scouting mission north of the wall to find his missing uncle and investigate the strange happenings that have been reported.
