Wow, things are going poorly in King's Landing. People are running amok, pulling down giant stone statues, rounding slaves into pens... wait, these are the Dothraki. Well, this seems pretty much business-as-usual, then. Luckily for us, Jorah is here to narrate to Daenerys and we get to listen in and find out what's going on. Khal Drogo's men are enslaving "lamb men," which they will give to slavers, who will give them gold. And then Khal Drogo, even though he doesn't officially believe in money, will trade the gold for ships, silk, and steel. That sounds a lot like someone who, if he doesn't believe in money, at least understands how it works. For that matter, it sounds like these slavers are pretty lazy. Doesn't their name sound like they ought to be doing the enslaving themselves? I guess that's not a job you get into if you're keen on doing everything yourself. Dany stops when they reach the spot where all the women are being rounded up for raping. She wants Jorah to stop them from getting raped. The one whose raping turn is being interrupted objects on the grounds that they're only lamb girls. In his view, being raped by a mighty Horse Man like himself should only honor her. He conjectures that maybe the problem is that her piteous shrieks are annoying Dany, so he offers to cut out her tongue. Strangely, this does not satisfy Dany, and she insists that the raping stop immediately. She claims all the women as her personal slaves, which does not endear her to the men. Jorah tells her that she's not actually authorized to claim everyone, but she says that she's doing exactly that.
