Video Podcast of Game of Thrones, Season 1, Episode 3, “Lord Snow”

SEK of Lawyers, Guns, and Money and I have met again for another recap of Season 1 of Game of Thrones. We discuss more assimilation and Viserys, the dysfunction of the Night’s Watch, what’s going on with the royal bankruptcy and more.

A quick programming note: SEK is moving, so there won’t be any recap next week, but we should have Episode 4 of Season 1 up the week after that.

Check it out!

    Regarding the embezzlement theory, it makes a lot of sense. Plus, there’s the added irony if all the money the Iron Bank lent the crown is actually deposited in the Iron Bank (under numerous aliases, one imagines).

    Your discussion of Eddard’s failure to utilize his powers of office made me think of an underlying cause of that failure. You say that Eddard does not sufficiently trust in his bond with Robert to earn him forgiveness when he uses royal power independent of the king, and I would say a huge part of this stems from his uncertainty about what kind of person Robert has become. Eddard is greatly shaken by Robert’s transformation when he first encounters the king again at Winterfell. And later when he is pondering his course of action at various points while in King’s Landing, Ned’s internal struggle is basically over whether he can trust Robert to be the good man he is capable of being. This is a doubt shared by Catelyn, who sends Ned south specifically because she fears retribution from Robert if Ned should refuse. It turns out that Ned did still hold sway over Robert, but that was not something Ned felt certain of, except for brief moments, while in King’s Landing.
