After the death of Viserys, Khal Drogo seems content to forget his promise to conquer Westeros for his wife, Daenerys-until an assassination attempt stirs him to vows of vengeance. Vengeance is also in the air at King's Landing, where Joffrey, newly enthroned, names Tywin Lannister as the King's Hand . . . while Sansa Stark pleads for the life of her father, now named a traitor to the crown. Locked away, injured and in disgrace, Eddard is offered a final bargain: For the price of his honor, he may yet save his life . . . and that of his daughter.
